Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Thistledown Farm occupies a truly rural location with the homestead located at the end of a long private drive in a protected and sheltered position, enjoying views across its own farmland. The property is situated between the villages of Keinton Mandeville and Charlton Adam with Babcary nearby and Somerton some 3 miles to the east. The towns of Wincanton, Yeovil and Glastonbury are a short distance away. The property benefits from good road connections with direct access to the A37 and the A303 which is 3.5 miles to the south. The intercity train line to London Paddington is accessed at Castle Cary’s station which is 6 miles away. Excellent schools lie within the locality including Millfield at Street, Hazelgrove at Sparkford and Perrott Hill at Crewkerne.

Thistledown Farm offers prospective purchasers the increasingly rare opportunity to acquire a ring fenced holding of approximately 70 acres with the added benefit of amenity and conservation appeals. The house and building are situated at the end of a long private drive and there is good access to the land from both the farmstead and off the A37 which lies adjoining the eastern boundary.

The farmhouse is constructed of local stone beneath a tiled roof and lies in a sheltered position a short distance from the farm building. The principal rooms enjoy an open aspect with views over farmland and the open countryside beyond. The house offers flexible and spacious accommodation ideal for entertaining and as a family home. The generous accommodation is as described within the attached floor plans. With oak flooring throughout the ground floor, the accommodation includes a recently installed modern open plan kitchen with excellent bespoke kitchen units with modern Bosch oven and central island and larder off. The L-shaped room extends into a dining area with multi fuel burner and double glazed doors to the terrace. Additional accommodation on the ground floor includes hall with stairs off, a dual aspect sitting room, office, rear hall with utility area and cloakroom.
On the first floor hall is a principal bedroom with en-suite bathroom, 3 further double bedrooms and family bathroom. The house has the benefit of oil fired central heating and double glazing throughout. The house is approached over a long tree-lined private drive with spacious gravelled areas adjoining which provide ample parking for a number of vehicles and serviced by a double garage. There are additional areas of enclosed lawned gardens bounded by beech hedges.

Situated to the east of the house and accessed via the farm drive, there is a modern steel portal frame general purpose stock shed measuring 90’ x 60’ with partial concrete floor and surrounding concrete yard. Planning permission has been granted for the construction of a second building of similar size if so required by a prospective purchaser. A further livestock shelter measuring 20’ x 10’ is located in the home field adjoining the house.

All lying within a ring fence and cropped within an arable rotation, the land surrounds the homestead and would be ideal to service a range of arable, livestock or equestrian enterprises.
The fields enjoy access off the farm drive and a further gateway is located off the A37. To the north of the house there is a small, well maintained parcel of amenity woodland of approximately 5.5 acres offering a variety of broadleaf species. A small flight pond is situated on the edge of the woodland. In all the property extends to some 70 acres (28.34 hectares or thereabouts).
