About the area 
Axbridge is a small town in Somerset, situated in the Sedgemoor district on the River Axe, near the southern edge of the Mendip Hills. Its population is just over 2,000 people. It's an historic town dating back to King Alfred and was one of his burgs (fortified townsteads) against the Danes. Half-timbered buildings lean towards each other across a narrow street leading to the medieval square and King John's Hunting Lodge. Its prosperous past is reflected in the quality of the buildings in Axbridge, particularly the fine 13th century St John's Church which is the oldest to survive, dating back to 1245. It's well placed for the other towns of the region and in easy reach of Bristol It benefits from a bypass which keeps all through traffic well away. There are excellent state and independent schools in the area including Kings of Wessex, Strode College, Wells Blue, Wells Cathedral and Millfield.

Jubilee road runs into Axbridge from the east and is a pleasant residential area in easy reach of the centre. Jubilee Farm stands alongside this road and is a deceptively large property with an enormous amount of scope. The house has extensive residential accommodation (3 rooms are currently given over to office use but could just as easily be part of the house). The accommodation really is strikingly spacious and comfortable and has many attractive details and features including oak and tiled floors in various rooms, hardwood double glazed windows, painted stonewalls, an electric Aga and gas central heating.
