Back Lane, Somerset

This exquisite five-bedroom home occupies a secluded position in the desirable village of Batcombe in Somerset. The house is set within over an acre of beautifully landscaped, south-facing gardens, with a private studio/office nestled amidst mature specimen trees and woodland marking the border. The subject of an extensive recent renovation, the internal living space of over 5,000 sq ft is set over three storeys and artfully combines modern interventions with original architectural details. The heart of the home is arguably the kitchen, a voluminous room that encompasses half of the lower ground floor plan and has expansive picture windows that frame views over the verdant gardens beyond. The expansive hallway, currently arranged as a library and laid with beautiful oak parquet flooring, is positioned up a set of stairs that ascend from the kitchen. Built-in shelves, painted a dark grey, surround the space. Adjacent is the first of two living rooms, where a wood-burning stove sits within a marble fireplace that is framed by window seats. Five bedrooms can be found on the floors above. At the centre of the upper ground floor is a cosy family living space, replete with a log-burning stove, which has white-painted floorboards and a fantastic quality of natural light. Due to the home’s position set within the hillside, these do not feel like ground-floor spaces but rather feel supremely elevated and have beautiful views. The main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe with walnut fittings and pale pink walls, plus an impeccably executed en suite with patterned tiled flooring. Each bedroom has been decorated in a carefully considered neutral palette, making them wonderfully versatile spaces in terms of potential for further decoration and feature underfloor heating to function as a separate office space. £2,650.00, Available Themodernhouse.com
