Dairy Barn is one of three converted barns of stone construction with later red brick enhancement, offering a beautifully presented dwelling with charming, retained features.

Providing a light and airy centrepiece, at the heart of the home, an impressive sitting/dining room showcases a vaulted, beamed ceiling and a stunning stone fireplace with wood-burning stove. There are two sets of French doors in this convivial setting, one linking to a bright conservatory where the garden can be enjoyed throughout the seasons, and one providing a seamless connection to an outside terrace.

Across the reception hall, a spacious kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with modern, woodfronted cabinetry with pretty, pastel blue tiled splashback, and provides ample space for informal dining. The kitchen offers an external door, as does the adjacent utility room, which provides additional storage units, whilst a versatile-use study completes the reception space. A rustic stone-topped aperture marks the length of hallway which gives access to the wing housing bedroom accommodation. The principal room features exposed rafters in the vaulted ceiling and offers a charming retreat with an adjoining en suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms and a well-appointed, modern family bathroom, which complements a cloakroom facility beside the study.

Charlton Musgrove offers a picturesque rural setting with a village hall hosting local classes and events and the Kimbers Farm Shop, with café, situated just 2 miles away. Communication links are good via the A303 for journeys to London and the West Country. Mainline stations can be accessed in nearby Bruton and Gillingham for services to Salisbury, Exeter and London. At 2 miles distant, Wincanton offers good amenities including supermarkets, a health centre, post office and library, public houses and eateries, along with a sports centre and sports ground. The cathedral city of Salisbury is slightly further afield with a comprehensive range of recreational, shopping and cultural facilities including the Salisbury Playhouse theatre and two multi-screen cinemas, along with further rail services. Stourhead, Hauser & Wirth and The Newt are also accessible.

The property sits on a generous plot with a low-level stone wall fronting the lane and two, five-bar timber gates at the access point which open onto a swathe of gravelled driveway leading to the garaging. There are lengths of clipped evergreen hedging in the garden which is mainly laid to expanses of lawn with several specimen trees and conifers. Paved terracing, with south and westerly aspects, adjoins the house offering opportunities for al fresco dining and relaxation in this peaceful outdoor sanctuary, where planted beds contain mature shrubs and perennial plants. A further paved setting at the rear of the property offers a spot for placing garden benches to sit and enjoy the easterly aspect.
