East Farm Barn is a detached stone barn conversion, which dates back to the 17th century, and was converted in the early 1980’s. It is situated in the heart of the sought-after village of Atworth, which provides plenty of local amenities, and easy access to Bath, West Wiltshire and the M4.
Set back from the road, and approached via a short track, the property presents a handsome exterior. The expansive gravelled driveway is bordered by a dry stone wall, and provides parking for a multitude of vehicles. The property also benefits from three covered parking bays, created from converted cart sheds, and a secure lock-up.
Entering the property through the front porch provides the perfect opportunity to discard shoes and welly boots. The subsequent hallway is ideal for hanging keys, and offers a walk-in cupboard with storage space, and a separate WC.
To the right, the living room is undoubtedly the heart of the home. With a feature fireplace, stone hearth, and log burner, it is the ideal space for cosying up with a book or film in the evenings. Wide windows on both sides allow in plenty of natural light, and an alcove under the stairs provides additional seating space.
Continuing through the house, the kitchen is a bright and airy room, with a high apex ceiling and exposed beams. There is ample workspace for family meals, and a back door into the garden. A separate dining room provides the perfect space for entertaining, with room for an eight-seater table, and attractive French doors which open out onto the patio.
There is an additional reception room, which has a myriad of potential uses, but is currently being used as a guest room/study. It could be opened up, subject to planning, in order to create a breakfast room.
The property greatly benefits from the addition of an annex, which is accessed via the kitchen. Currently split into three distinct rooms – a spacious utility, large double bedroom, and en-suite bathroom – the annex has its own separate boiler and fuse box. There is definitely the option for the annex to become completely self-contained, or for it to remain linked to the rest of the house.
Upstairs, there are two good-sized double bedrooms, both with attractive views and exposed beams. The master has built-in storage space. There is an additional single bedroom, which is currently being used as a home office/reading room. The large family bathroom consists of a modern suite, which includes both a shower and a separate bath tub, and an airing cupboard.
The rear garden is sure to be a talking point. Set in a 1/3 of an acre, and with exceptional views across open farmland. It is bordered by a dry stone wall, and currently offers a mixture of lawn and patio, trees, shrubs and flowers. It is the perfect space for summer barbeques, trampolines and swing sets, and pets.
East Farm Barn has been a cherished family home for many years, and offers unlimited potential to retain, expand and/or reconfigure, as desired by any new owners. Located in the middle of the village, the property is within walking distance of two pubs, two farm shops, a convenience store, Post Office, and outstanding country walks.
Atworth village has a strong community spirit, with annual events, and an active village hall. It is steeped in history, dating back to medieval times, and is surrounded by market towns.
