Property Description
A beautifully appointed linked two-story barn conversion in an elevated position in the hamlet of Worminster, just south of the Mendip Hills, built to a high specification in 2013, with stunning rural un-spoilt, far-reaching views.
In brief, the extensive accommodation includes an entrance hall, kitchen/dining room, sitting room, 4 double bedrooms, 2 en-suite bathrooms and family bathroom, utility room and WC on the ground floor. Downstairs is a conservatory, study, gym, cinema room, steam room and sauna. On the hillside outside is a self-contained summer house (with further shower room) and two garages and a garden storeroom. Stoodly Barn is approached via a gravel driveway has ample parking for several vehicles and the grounds amount to 3 acres.

This former agricultural building was built in an L-shape and has been improved and extended by the current owners to include a unique glass atrium used as a working office plus trifold doors and Velux windows which allows natural light to flood the house on both levels. The barn perfectly combines period features and contemporary style to create a warm and bright family home.
A path leads up to the welcoming glazed entrance. To the left through a Japanese style wooden sliding door is a comfortable sitting room with feature exposed stone walls and vaulted ceilings with ‘A’ frame timbers and a fireplace with log burner with fitted bookshelves to either side. A French window overlooks the front garden and there are Velux windows in the ceiling.
Beyond this are two double bedrooms with high vaulted ceilings with beams, lovely views, as well as plenty of built-in cupboard space. These are serviced by a luxury family bathroom. At the end of the wing is the master bedroom with French doors leading out onto the garden with en suite wet room with ‘Japanese’ WC and ‘his and hers’ basins.
To the other side of the hall is the magnificent kitchen/dining room, upgraded in 2021 with a central island unit and semi-circular seating around a round table with feature integral LED lighting. This faces onto the 6 panel bifold doors with in-laid pleated blinds to the south with ‘brise soleil’ sun reflector blinds. Beyond is the simply stunning view over the fields into the valley beyond. This is a wonderful spot to sit and watch the changing light and seasons. The luxury kitchen has a wide range of bespoke Charles York Lay on Rio fitted units and Miele appliances include four electric ovens including 2 double ovens with steam oven and microwave/combinations, an induction hob, a Bora Pro teppanyaki hotplate, a downdraught extraction fan, dishwasher, and American style fridge/freezer. The worktops are of Corian & Quartz and the sink has a Quooker tap with filtered/boiling water features.
There are air-conditioning units to the kitchen and reception room which provide for cool and warm air. The heating throughout the house is underfloor.
Beyond the kitchen is a WC and utility room with fitted units, sink and A-rated Worcester Bosch boiler. A staircase leads down to the gym at the lower floor.
There is another bright double bedroom at this end of the barn which has French doors to the terrace as well as full width glass doors leading to the impressive atrium beyond. This bedroom has a separate walk-in wardrobe and bathroom with bath and separate shower.
From the lofty atrium landing there are spiral steps leading down the lower ground level, which has been built by the present owners. At the bottom of the stairs, the flexible accommodation, bathed in natural light, is used as a study area. Through a set of French windows beyond is a spacious gym. This leads through to a corridor off which are a sauna and steam room/shower/WC.
Finally, at the end of the property is a cinema room with a large screen, surround sound speaker system, concealed ambient lighting, fitted storage cupboards, and an air recovery system. A cupboard houses the communication systems (Sonos sound system, Skybox, Starlink broadband controller, etc).

Stoodly Barn is approached via a shared drive with 2 other barns. This leads to a private parking area and double garage (electric garage doors) with workshop. A paved path leads to the front door with lawned gardens to either side. The gardens have a wide array of mature shrubs, a decked area for barbecues and extend to three sides of the property. On the hillside behind the barn is a Cedar wood summer house, which was recently built, approached via steps with sensor lighting and which commands breath-taking south facing views from the bifold doors to the front. This contains a studio room with kitchen area, shower room and underfloor heating. It boasts a grassed sedum roof and a planted living wall and the terrace in front provides the perfect spot from which to enjoy peaceful, uninterrupted views over the countryside. The boundary of the property is planted with blackthorn and hawthorn hedging, providing privacy.
