A delightful equestrian home with beautiful grounds including paddocks and stabling

Location

Lympsham is a popular Somerset village providing superb communication links to the M5 motorway network, Bristol International airport and the train station in Weston Super Mare. The village is well served by the local post office and convenience store, and there is a very active community centre, tennis and cricket club and livery stables, with cross country and outdoor school for hire. There is a highly regarded primary school, with access to excellent state secondary education, but for more extensive choice, both state and independent, Taunton and Bristol offer various choices. For sporting pursuits, there are golf courses in proximity and the nearby coast and Mendip Hills - the latter an area of outstanding natural beauty - provide wonderful walks and bridleways

Description

Tucked away off a quiet country lane at the head of a very long private driveway, this delightful period home dates to circa 1860 and offers exceptional amenities for both the equestrian buyer and the country lover seeking manageable accommodation coupled with generous ground and outbuildings. During the course of the current owners 30 year tenure, the house has been beautifully cared for, in 2010 benefitting from a programme of significant refurbishment. It is certainly rare to find a house of such charm and without any doubt, a visit is required to fully appreciate the unique attributes of both the home and its lovely grounds.

On a daily base, the house is most likely to accessed via the boot room set off the gated gravelled driveway but there is a formal entrance hallway with tiled entrance vestibule and Victorian stained glass front door. This opens to a large inner hallway with under stairs cloakroom. There are two ground floor studies; passing through the smaller of these leads to a wonderful south east facing conservatory, perfectly placed to capture sunlight from the early morning through the majority of the day. From the drawing room, a wide bay window enjoys a pretty aspect across the colourful and sheltered front garden with a fine tiled Victorian fireplace forming a lovely focal point to this elegant, comfortable room. The dining room also features an equally impressive fireplace with marble surround with a decorative and functional wood burning stove. Much of the original character of the home has been retained including dado and picture rails and original cornice ceilings and the replacement double glazed windows have been carefully selected to reflect the original detailing - a welcome addition to a property that would have once been draughty and is now warm and economical to heat. A relaxed breakfast room sits between the kitchen and dining room, more likely to be used on a day to day basis for informal dining for family and friends and the well fitted kitchen is of an equally good size with an extensive run of painted solid wood storage units with oak work surfaces. Appliances include a Rangemaster Professional Plus stove with five burner ceramic hob and twin ovens, integrated microwave, Bosch dishwasher and under counter refrigerator. The garden may be accessed via the quarry tiled utility with Belfast sink, further storage and space for both washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer. A further walk through boot room and cloak store leads to the independent second study with windows overlooking the sheltered patio area, perfect for breakfast and lunch during the warmer summer months. The unusually spacious galleried landing opens to four bedrooms and a beautifully designed family bathroom with Victorian style wall tiling, period style suite with Burlington of London tapware and rain shower. The bedrooms are all decorated in a calm country style with feature walls in each room papered in stylish floral patterns complimenting the neutral tones on adjacent walls. Three of the bedrooms have built in wardrobes and the varied views across gardens and adjoining countryside are all exceptionally pleasing.

For a country property, the grounds are the perfect combination of manicured, ornamental gardens, sweeping lawns, orchard and paddocks. Immediately to the base of the long driveway is a fully enclosed turnout area with further chicken runs to the rear and side. A particularly pretty area of the garden is the wooden bridge that has been constructed over the Rhyne which is a haven for local wildlife. The lawn between the two watercourses is interspersed with flowering shrubs such as Magnolia, Camellia and ornamental and fruit trees. There is a naturalised area for wild flowers, grasses and bulbs, as well as Pine trees and three Weeping Willows. There is a also a vegetable garden, planted with soft fruit and herbs. The open fronted American style barn provides useful workspace and shelter from the elements and for keen equestrian buyers, there are two separate stables/barns. The first of these, closest to the house has a foaling box, loose box and tack room and to the back of the first paddock a triple period barn that was once three further stables. In addition to the gardens and grounds the two paddocks are a further 1.8 acres, 3.16 in total.
