This fantastic house is a self-build conversion of a former Grain Store and is one of two impressive 1896 sq. ft eco builds. This is a three-bedroom property with grounds extending to over two acres with a swimming pool. Woods screen the house from the road and a shared drive takes you to the parking and house that is surrounded by beautiful Somerset countryside.
On entering the property there is a double height sitting room with a feature wood burning stove which rotates on its plinth. An opening then leads through to a custom-built kitchen and dining space with doors giving access to the garden and terrace. Wood burning Esse cooker in addition to the dual fuel range cooker.
There is also a large ground floor double bedroom and stylish shower room.
Stairs from the inner hall lead up to two further double bedrooms both with generous picture windows looking over the gardens, (one with dressing area) and lovely family bathroom.
The property is approached via a long driveway to a large parking area to the front and side of the house. The landscaped garden also incorporates a wild pond, and a natural swimming pool designed by Clearwater Revival. The natural swimming pool can be heated by air sourced system to 27/29 degrees for up to nine months of the year with a solar cover. There is a pleasant seating area ideal for entertaining and alfresco dining. There are outbuildings, treehouse, and fruit cage. The current owner planted over 1000 trees 22 years ago – so you have your own supply of wood!
A former timber outbuilding has been converted into further accommodation comprising a bedroom with shower and a sitting room with kitchen area.
The property has a new updated heat exchanger ventilation system and a regularly maintained ground source heat pump, two wood burning stoves. Gas bottles provide gas for the hobs and the ovens are electric, there is underfloor heating, Rational windows and doors and recycled newspaper insulation. At present the property shares a rainwater recycling system & biotech sewage processing plant with the neighbouring Haybarn. Planning permission exists for further development potential (e.g. mezzanine part extension over the vaulted sitting room, and balcony).
Outside there is a 9kw wind turbine which is very eco and keeps the electric bills down! Plenty of outside taps and outside electric sockets. The entrance to Green Lane offers a right of way to Penselwood, and a woodland walk to Hunters Lodge.
The perfect site to live a sustainable lifestyle with raised beds for vegetables, herbs and flowers, and fenced paddocks to keep small animals or chickens. There is an existing orchard. This is a unique house and a great opportunity to "go green"! Don't miss out.
This property is currently being run as a highly successful holiday let with many 5* reviews!
