A delightful two bedroom detached single storey barn conversion with garden, parking and a small paddock. Set within a small community, originally a farm complex with outbuildings, each property is now an independent residence. The Stables has high ceilings with some exposed timberwork providing character and a feeling of space. The accommodation comprises two large double bedrooms, bathroom, spacious hallway and open plan living/dining/kitchen with wood burning stove. There is potential to extend the property slightly to the rear off the kitchen, subject to consents (although this may come within permitted development). Outside, there is parking space for 2-3 vehicles and a garden area running along the back of the house, which is south facing. Beyond this, (at a higher level) is a small paddock with gated access from the garden. The property is located along a short lane in a rural location and yet just a 5 minute drive (1.3 miles) from the nearest shop. Chard is the nearest town at around 3.5 miles to the north with Axminster 6.3 miles to the south. The thriving West Dorset village of Thorncombe is just 2.7 miles away, with Tatworth/South Chard at 1.3 miles, where there is a convenience store and post office. The property benefits from timber double glazed windows and oil fired central heating. There is no onward chain.
