Bishops Lydeard, Taunton, Somerset
Long Barn sits within a total of approximately 3 acres and is built in a traditional red Somerset sandstone.
Long Barn was converted in the 1990's and is built in a red Somerset sandstone and attaches itself to the neighbouring property via the scullery. It presents itself with many character features that nod tastefully to the barns origins.
This most charming conversion combines good levels of privacy and relative seclusion whilst maintaining excellent access to the wider amenities and road networks sitting as it does within its own grounds and South/Westerly facing position. With a very useful outbuilding and its potential for a number of uses as well as parking for numerous vehicles, gated driveway access, we encourage an internal inspection of this fabulous and unique home.
