AN extraordinary barn conversion has been brought to the market for the first time in Butcombe, North Somerset.

Designed, built and finished to an incredibly high standard, Easter Barn benefits from an ‘A’ rating for energy performance.

Another exceptional feature of Easter Barn is its large, standalone wellness suite, which incorporates a gym, steam room and swimming pool with changing facilities.

The pool room commands uninterrupted and far-reaching views across the Mendips.

Set within a large plot, extending to just under 0.8 of an acre, the main house offers over 4,000sq ft of living space, arranged over three floors.

The open-plan living space on the ground floor provides plenty of space for entertaining, with a triple set of doors running much of the width of the barn, opening to a beautiful veranda which runs the width of the building, maximising the extensive views.

Four double bedrooms and four bathrooms occupy the first floor, while the lower ground level is home to a large office space, that could equally become a games room or home cinema.

David Wild, who is marketing Easter Barn on behalf of Savills Bristol, said: "Easter Barn is one of the most impressive barn conversions I have ever seen.

"The attention to detail the owners put into the design and build is second to none, particularly in relation to ensuring the highest possible energy efficiency credentials.

"Technologies including air source heating, solar photovoltaic cells, a full heat recovery system and high-specification thermal glazing contribute to terrific heat retention and minimal running costs.

"The owners have been careful to build in flexibility throughout, so, for example, the lower ground floor office is wired up for use as a home cinema, while the wellness suite has been designed in such a way that it could be converted into a self-contained annex if desired.

"The property has been created with lifestyle in mind, with its interior features enhanced only by its location in the wonderful Chew Valley, which offers the most incredible views over the valley and Mendip Hills beyond.

"The owners say that living here is like being on holiday every day and I can absolutely see that – it is one of the most exciting homes to come to the market in the region this year."

The property is offered on a guide price of £2.35million.
