Situation Longlands Barn is situated in a stunning rural location, facing south west, at the end of a shared driveway. The property offers lovely views over its own land, open countryside and across to the West Somerset Steam Railway line. Although rural and private, the property is only 4 miles from the county town of Taunton and 1 mile from the village of Bishops Lydeard, which offers a range of day to day facilities, supplemented by Taunton. Taunton has excellent shopping, with many well-known retailers, good independent schools, sports facilities and a main line railway with fast trains to London Paddington. Communications to the West Country have greatly improved in recent years and the M5 motorway at junction 25 provides easy access to Bristol, The Midlands and London.
Description Longlands Barn is a stunning detached barn conversion in a private south west facing location with views over its own land and open farmland. The property offers spacious, flexible accommodation on three levels, and due to the lie of the land, two levels open up to the gardens. The property is a highly attractive family house and has extensive outbuildings to include a guest annexe, workshop, garage and games room. The barn was converted sympathetically and contains many period features which are supplemented by modern additions, including hardwood windows and double glazing, allowing the property to benefit from lots of natural light. The property is surrounded by its own land with beautiful landscaped gardens and the entire property is extremely private, yet accessible.
