Full description

A detached period farmhouse with a beautiful garden situated in a wonderful location overlooking open countryside above the small sought after town of Bruton. EPC: D

Believed to date from the 17th Century, Tolbury Farm is a detached former dairy farmhouse built of local stone with a Welsh slate roof. It has been the family home of the current owners for the past 40 years. Over that time the house has been steadily renovated and improved and is now in excellent order and very well presented throughout. The house is situated off a peaceful, no-through road and both of its reception rooms and 3 of its 4 bedrooms look down over its lovely garden and across the valley formed by Coombe Brook, which flows about 100 yards below the house. On the ground floor the front door opens onto a large living room, which has an inglenook fireplace fitted with a wood-burning stove, beamed ceiling and oak flooring. Steps lead up to the snug which also has an open fireplace (currently fitted with a gas fire) and oak flooring with windows on 3 sides including French windows leading out onto the terrace. From the living room a door leads to the light and airy kitchen/breakfast room, which has a limestone flagged floor with under floor heating and is fitted with a range of bespoke oak fronted floor and wall mounted units and an extensive range of electric cooking appliances. Beyond the kitchen is the cloakroom and the utility room, which is fitted with units and a Belfast sink, with a door leading out to the garden. On the first floor there is the master bedroom with en suite shower room and 3 further double bedrooms.
