Reputedly dating back to the 17th Century, Manor Farm is a fine grade II listed former detached farmhouse situated on the edge of this sought after village. This charming house contains a great detail of character, boasting features to include stone mullioned windows, flagstone flooring, exposed beams as well as elm and pine timbers. The property was sympathetically renovated a number of years ago to retain the character and yet provide modern fittings such as a Smallbone kitchen with Aga, well-appointed bathrooms and fitted furniture to one of the bedrooms. The property is ideal for entertaining friends and guests with a large formal reception room in addition to a very welcoming kitchen/dining/family room that also connects directly into a cosy sitting room with fireplace and woodburner. The property also benefits at ground floor level from a most useful utility/boot room with a wc off and it is considered that this could easily make a lovely home office. Also attached to the house is a former outbuilding that now serves as a further utility/boiler room, also containing an extra wc.
The very popular village of North Wootton lies conveniently only a few minutes' drive to the south of Wells. There is a village church, Hall and the Crossways Restaurant. The village is characterised by many appealing period properties together winding lanes and myriad of public footpaths crisscrossing attractive countryside. The beautiful Cathedral City of Wells is only 4 miles away well known for its beautiful architecture including landmarks such as the Cathedral and Bishops Palace. There are many clubs and societies to get involved in as well as bustling High Street and twice weekly produce market in the Market Square. Schooling is well catered for at both primary and secondary level, state and private. North Wootton is also very accessible to the towns of Glastonbury and Street, home to Millfield Preparatory and Senior Schools.
The property is approached via a five bar vehicular and pedestrian gate opening to a driveway that turns to the right where a double bay outbuilding provides under cover parking and also contains the oil storage tank. This building perhaps provides further conversion possibilities (Subject to listed building consent). Immediately behind the house is a raised area of lawn with supporting flower and rose beds. The vast majority of garden is to be found on the southern side of the property and where recent landscaping has taken place. There is a large expanse of lawn together with a wide variety of mature shrubs and plants and a mature eucalyptus tree. To the rear of the plot is an enclosed utility garden with large greenhouse and covered vegetable/fruit growing beds. The garden is considered to offer a good degree of privacy and also enjoys a sunny aspect.
