The Ale Barn, THEALE, Wedmore, Somerset
The Ale Barn is a stunning example of a barn conversion located down a country lane in the sought after village of Theale which is just outside of Wedmore with all its popular amenities. Converted to a very high standard in 2003 this spacious, light family home is both charming and characterful throughout. This includes exposed stone walls, Oak flooring and exposed ceiling beams. In addition contemporary features such as underfloor heating have been installed. The light, spacious kitchen dining room opens into the impressive lounge with an attractive brick built fireplace. There is also a study and a shower room on the ground floor. Upstairs there is a family bathroom and four bedrooms including the master bedroom with en suite. Outside the private, wall enclosed west facing rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with a raised decking area. At the front there is a triple garage with a games room above. This could potentially provide annexe accommodation if required (SSTP). In addition to the garage there is off road parking for at least six cars.

Ground Floor

There are three entrances into the property. A main door into the hallway at both the front and the rear of the property as well as a stable door opening into the kitchen. The dual aspect hallway has wooden flooring, exposed stone walls and a large drying cupboard housing the hot water cylinder. Double doors from the hall lead into the impressive lounge which measures 21' 2" x 13' (6.45m x 3.96m). Light and spacious with wooden double glazed windows to both the front and rear elevations. A real feature of the room is the brick built fireplace with a wood burning stove as well as the exposed stone wall and ceiling beams. Double doors then open into the wonderful kitchen and dining room. Measuring an impressive 24' x 13' 10" (7.32m x 4.22m) there is a vaulted ceiling with 'A' frame roof timbers. The part exposed brick walls is repeated with brick pillars in between the bespoke hand made kitchen units which have wooden work tops over. The matching island has storage cupboards under, a recess with space for a wine rack and a double Belfast sink with mixer tap over. Chimney recess with space for a range style cooker. There is also plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine. Recessed down lighting and slate tiled flooring with under floor heating. On one side two windows with deep wooden sills look out to the rear entrance and on the other French doors lead out to the west facing decking area. At the other end of the hall is the study. Measuring 14' 9" x 8' 6" (4.50m x 2.59m) this dual aspect room has wooden flooring and exposed stone walls. This versatile room could also be a family room or a downstairs bedroom. Also off the hall is a ground floor shower room.<br/><br/>Stairs from the hall lead up to the:

First Floor

Oak wooden flooring continues up the staircase and through the split level, dual aspect landing area which has further exposed stone walls. At the far end steps lead down into the MASTER BEDROOM, again dual aspect with wooden flooring. Measuring 13' 4" x 13' 3" (4.06m x 4.04m), there are fitted wardrobes with storage above along one wall and a door to the EN SUITE shower room with a wall hung wash hand basin and a WC with a high cistern. When converted in 2003 a clever design was the way the en suite opens into the main BATHROOM which has a corner bath with a hand held shower attachment over, pedestal wash hand basin and a WC. This allows the master bedroom use of the bathroom if necessary or the option to close it off to allow the other bedrooms sole use. BEDROOM TWO measures 14' 7" x 8' 6" (4.44m x 2.59m) and is triple aspect with wooden flooring. BEDROOM THREE measures 10' 7" x 6' 11" (3.23m x 2.11m), has a window to the rear aspect and a deep storage cupboard with shelving.

The front of the property is enclosed by a stone wall and is accessed from the lane. At the rear of the property double wooden gates open on to the gravelled drive. From here the property can be accessed through a second entrance into the hall and a stable door opening into the kitchen. A gate from the drive opens in to the wall enclosed garden which is west facing and very private. Mainly laid to lawn there are steps up to the decking area just outside the kitchen.
