General Description
If you are looking for a country retreat with charm and character, whilst benefiting from all the amenities of a thriving town, then Willow Barn offers that and more. The stunning period property is one of two barn conversions, which were originally part of Moor Farm and were converted in 2008. The farm house, which is another private dwelling dates back to 1837 and is a Grade II listed building. The three properties are set within their own sizeable plots creating a charming hamlet, giving security and comfort for those wanting country living without the feeling of total isolation. The barn is hidden away from the noise of busy roads at the end of an idyllic private lane. Willow Barn is perfect for those who require space or who are simply looking for a property to escape from the hustle and bustle of day to day living. It is positioned on the rural fringe of Portishead in an area called Sheepway, providing ease of access for the family purchaser to nearby schools and shopping facilities. For the city professional looking to be out of town, the ease of access to the motorway and Central Bristol will be a huge benefit.The house itself consists of four double bedrooms with bedroom two and four located on the ground floor. Bedroom three and the master bedroom are located on the first floor. There are two sizeable reception rooms, a stunning kitchen/breakfast room, a small utility room, two stylish modern family bathrooms and an en-suite shower room to the master bedroom. The property greets you with a stunning, solid oak front door and oak flooring spreads throughout the living areas on the ground floor. Many of the rooms are presented with original wooden beams and exposed stone walls, there is also an inviting log burning fire place to the main reception room. The kitchen/breakfast room is the real heart of the home and has a well laid out open plan design, perfect for social interaction. Comprising ‘Shaker’ style wall and base units, black granite worktops, double sink, electric Rangemaster cooker, plumbing for an American style fridge freezer, integrated under counter fridge and freezer, integrated dishwasher and a separate utility area that provides plumbing for a washing machine/dryer. The kitchen/breakfast room is a wonderful light area to enjoy with family and friends alike or for social gatherings. There is also direct access to a private court yard area, that wraps around the side of the house and leads to the sunny aspect rear garden. The property is heated by an air source heat pump, which is a system that uses the latent heat from the outside air and provides heating and hot water for the property. This system benefits from low carbon emissions and reduces energy bills.This fine residence will be of interest to a wide range of prospective purchasers and is positioned within a spacious plot with gardens expanding to the side and rear of the property. Planning permission was granted in 2011 (North Somerset Ref: 11/P1796/F) for a three bay green oak outbuilding, incorporating two open car parking bays and a domestic store/workshop but this has now lapsed as the owners decided to extend the existing dining room to create a stunning dual aspect room, which they use as a dining room and sitting area. It is perfectly positioned to enjoy the afternoon and evening sun. With its unique charm, fantastic parking facilities and surrounding countryside, this property is one not to be missed.
