Believed to have been built in the mid-17th century of stone elevations under a tiled roof, Brickhouse Farm has been completely refurbished by the current owners. Substantially extended in 2008 the house offers spacious and flexible
accommodation throughout and retains many of its period features whilst offering modern living including underfloor heating and in built ceiling speakers in the principal rooms. Situated in an elevated position the house commands wonderful south facing views over the countryside and paddocks belonging to the house.
The south of the house is the original farmhouse where the large kitchen and family room are located. The kitchen has a good range of painted wood floor and wall units with a large central island. There is a 2 door Aga with 2 gas hobs and an electric double oven. A stable door leads to the outside and there is also a doorway from the kitchen directly to the family room. This boasts a large inglenook fireplace encompassing one wall, exposed beams and doors opening onto the terrace.
Connecting the formal rooms to the original house is a very impressive hall with a double height A-framed ceiling with roof windows and a galleried landing. The drawing room is dual aspect with French doors out to the terrace. Between the drawing room and dining room there is a double sided wood burner with stone mantelpiece. From the drawing room there is direct access to the dining room via a recessed doorway. A study overlooks the terrace and has built in cupboards and shelves and the door is the original front door of the house. There is also a large boot room with sink and cloakroom. At the rear of the hall is a lift up to the 1st floor.
The master bedroom is delightful, being dual aspect and has wonderful wide elm floorboards. There is a dressing room with a shower room and separate ensuite bathroom. There are two further bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, double bedroom, family bathroom and laundry room with 3 airing cupboards. On the 2nd floor are two further bedrooms.
The house is approached through a five bar gate and a long drive past the manèges, cottages and barn and leads to the side of the house where there is a 3 bay car port and wood store. Above this is a room which would make an ideal home office. Attached to this is a large playroom with cloakroom.
The garden is mostly laid to lawn and interspersed with trees and is bordered by mature hedging. To the east of the house is a large terrace area with a pond.
Attached to the playroom are two semi-detached cottages. Both have sitting room, kitchen/dining room, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
There are 4 paddocks attached to the house and 2 manèges. The paddocks are fenced and ideal for livestock.
A large barn has been divided into two with one part housing four stables and a tack area.
Further land may be available by separate negotiation.
Set in countryside renowned for its natural beauty near the Somerset/Dorset/Wiltshire border, Brickhouse Farm sits in a rural position close to the pretty village of Charlton Musgrove with its parish church and village hall. Much of the surrounding area is designated one of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is direct access from the farm to a number of lovely walks and rides.
The nearby small towns of Bruton and Wincanton have local facilities, the former having the renowned, recently opened, Hauser and Wirth art gallery and the Roth Bar and Grill, the latter well known for its racecourse. More comprehensive facilities are available in Gillingham while Salisbury and Bath have a wide range of cultural and commercial facilities.
Despite its rural nature, this lovely area is extremely accessible. There are rail services from Bruton to London Paddington via the Georgian town of Bath. Direct train services also run from Castle Cary and Gillingham to London Paddington and London Waterloo respectively. The A303, about 2 miles to the south, connects via the M3 to the national motorway network while the south coast is within reach, as are international airports at Bournemouth, Southampton and Bristol.
The area is particularly well known for its excellent schools including the Bruton and Sherborne schools, Sandroyd, Port Regis, St Marys Shaftesbury, Bryanston, Hazelgrove and Clayesmore. There is excellent hunting in the area with both the Blackmore and Sparkford Vale and the South West Wilts close by.
