Full description

Detached four bedroom barn conversion with outstanding equestrian facilities and far reaching views set in approaching 11 acres.


Longhill Farm is believed to have been separated from Longhill House and converted into a separate abode in the 1990's and has stone and brick elevations under tile and slate roofs. What marks out Longhill Farm from many similar properties is its position, its facilities and its potential. The property sits at the top of a southerly facing slope allowing panoramic views to be enjoyed across the Blackmore Vale throughout the seasons while its south and west facing aspect further enhances the feeling of light and space throughout the property. Its equestrian facilities are outstanding with the attached outbuildings currently arranged with ten/twelve stables with plenty of additional covered areas that can comfortably accommodate hay/feed and general farm machinery. In addition there is an enclosed lunging ring and a full size ménage. The potential is there, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents, to increase the living space substantially by expanding into the stables that are currently attached to the house without creating a fresh structure/footprint. The living spaces are generously proportioned with the main hub of daytime living undoubtedly revolving around a large kitchen/breakfast room. This itself centres around an AGA and is fitted with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards with an everyday eating area to one side with views out onto the gardens and countryside through double doors. The sitting room also has double doors that take in the views and is an attractive vaulted room with a wood burner to one corner while the dining room lies on the other side of the kitchen and is laid, along with the hall, to attractive yet practical slate floors. Behind the kitchen there is that most useful of country rooms, a large utility/dog and boot room which leads through to the attached stable block. On the other side of the dining room there is a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom while upstairs there are three further bedrooms one with an en-suite bathroom with the two remaining bedrooms sharing a family bathroom. In addition downstairs there is a study, a cloakroom and a pantry.

Longhill Farm lies on the west side of Cucklington an attractive village sits above the Blackmore Vale. Local facilities can be found at both Gillingham and Wincanton while the historic Abbey town of Sherborne and the local regional centre of Yeovil lie within comfortable motoring distance providing with them an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound with the area with many walks to be had from the village itself while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with a main line station at Gillingham linking directly with London Waterloo while road links are along the A303 joined at Wincanton giving swift access to London and the Home Counties along the M3, M25 route.
