Manor Farm is a Grade II listed Somerset farmhouse sitting within generous grounds amidst rolling countryside and featuring a detached converted barn that provides a strong income, with a further barn that is also ripe for conversion. Our clients have tastefully refurbished the property to create a lovely family home whilst retaining many original features. Viewing at the earliest opportunity is highly advised.
Our clients have tastefully refurbished Manor Farm to create a truly spectacular family home, taking great care to ensure that many of its wonderful original features have been retained. The house is approached via a pillared and gated entrance, with a long gravelled driveway sweeping past the property's barn and annexe (The Old Milking Parlour) towards a vast parking area at the rear of the house. Like many country houses, day to day access is from the rear, via the useful utility room that provides plenty of space to kick boots off and hang coats. From the front however, the original entrance porch is covered and leads into a handsome reception hallway with flag-stone floor and doors leading off to two beautifully proportioned reception rooms. These each enjoy rural views from shuttered double-glazed sash windows and each have the benefit of cast iron wood burning stoves, inset within pretty period fireplaces. The sitting room is finished with attractive parquet flooring and access into the kitchen makes it an ideal family snug for all seasons. The kitchen itself is of generous size, comfortably able to accommodate the whole family and taking in an outlook across the garden. A breakfast peninsular is a sociable place for informal dining although a more formal dining room sits adjacent to the kitchen and takes in further views across the garden, also benefiting from French doors that lead out to a gravelled dining terrace. From the first floor landing access is given to four generously proportioned double bedrooms. Three bedrooms located at the front of the house take in stunning far reaching views and all rooms are serviced by two delightful family bathrooms. Each boast a freestanding cast-iron roll top bath as well as walk-in shower enclosures.
The outside space is a particular selling feature of the property. The main garden is located to the rear of the house, laid predominantly to lawn and considered a perfect size for those wanting a great family garden without the need for too much maintenance. The gardens back on to open countryside at the rear and offer a great degree of privacy from all neighbouring properties. The front area of garden is retained by low level walling, also with well-established planted borders that give great screening from the roadside.
The Old Milking Parlour is a superb converted barn, currently let-out and providing a strong secondary income to the owners. The space could also make for an ideal guest annexe or self contained living space suitable for multi-generation family living. The annexe has been cleverly designed to provide two double bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en-suite), along with a generously proportioned 18ft reception room and separate kitchen. The barn provides a private situation away from the main house and enjoys its own access with ample parking for several vehicles. Opposite this is a further undeveloped barn, ripe for conversion and offering many of the same qualities that The Old Milking Parlour enjoys.
