LARGE FAMILY HOME AND A REGULAR INCOME Pack Horse Farm is an attractive Grade II listed six bedroom property in the heart of this popular village with two self-contained one bedroom holiday lets providing an income and planning permission to convert two outbuildings into further holiday lets.

Pack Horse Farm is an attractive early 19th Century Grade II listed six bedroom property in the heart of this popular Village, with two self-contained one bedroom holiday apartments providing an income. In addition to the two existing apartments there are two further units, a coach house and a barn which have planning permission to convert into two, one bedroom holiday lets and could add further reliable income. There is a further open fronted lean-to barn suitable for a number of uses.
The deceptively spacious semi-detached farmhouse has been updated and significantly improved by the current owners whilst retaining lots of the original features. The extensive accommodation includes two very large reception rooms at the front, a dining room, kitchen breakfast room and a utility.
Upstairs there are six double bedrooms, one with an en suite and the family bathroom. All set within a very good sized plot of approximately 0.8 of an acre, with established formal gardens at the front and rear which are mainly laid to lawn. There is plenty of off road parking for the main farmhouse and apartments. The property is being offered with the possibility of no onward chain.

Mark is a well sited and popular Somerset village served by an active local community. There is a popular pub in the centre of the village, The White Horse, as well as The Pack Horse on Church Street. The village is lucky enough to have a thriving village hall which hosts a flea market on the first Saturday of every month. There is also a Post office/Stores, Garage and Church. There are many active clubs and groups available within the community including Mark Friendship Group. With excellent road connections in all directions, Mark is perfect for both the country lover and rural commuter alike.

Schooling is much revered with an excellent local primary school, Hugh Sexey Middle School in Blackford (2 miles) and the Kings of Wessex Senior Academy in Cheddar (8 miles). In the private sector, Millfield School, Street is just c 13 miles distant.

The historic village of Wedmore is c 3.5 miles distant, offering a range of day to day facilities with the coastal towns of Weston-super-Mare and Burnham-on-Sea offer comprehensive support to the West as well as access to the national motorway network via Junction 22 of the M5 (8 miles). Rail links at Highbridge, Burnham on Sea and Weston-super-Mare offer a direct service to Bristol and London Paddington. The general area offers a range of country pursuits together with an excellent local golf course in Wedmore and sailing on Axbridge Reservoir. The cities of Bristol and Bath are conveniently c. 24 miles and c. 30 miles respectively with Bristol International Airport approximately 16 miles distant.
