Tasteful Grade II Listed former farmhouse with a wealth of period features set in formal gardens.  Quiet and peaceful setting with far reaching panoramas.

An impressive Grade II Listed former farmhouse with origins dating back to the 18th Century. During the 24 year tenure of the current owners, many enhancements have been made to the property and gardens. Ashton House stands within well-tended formal gardens with a carriage driveway. This quiet and peaceful setting enjoys vistas over farmland and orchards with far reaching panoramas.

Ashton is a small hamlet on the edge of the Saxon village of Wedmore which includes everything required for day to day living. There is a post office, pharmacy, doctor, dentist and hairdressers plus a general store, a butcher and a fishmonger/green grocer as well as hostelries.

Ashton House has stone elevations under a predominantly pitched slate roof. Refurbishments include the installation of a new kitchen, modern bathroom suites and yet the integrity of the home has very much been retained. The property is approached via a traditional reception hall with further inner hall and there are three principal rooms. The drawing room has dual aspect with sash windows to the front and side elevations. The family room is a more relaxed space with an inglenook and inset wood burning stove. An opening leads through to the kitchen and located off the rear hall the lobby has a cobbled floor, utility area and cloakroom. The first floor is split level with a family bathroom and bedroom while on the upper mezzanine there is a master bedroom suite with en suite bathroom and two additional bedrooms. The top floor features the fifth bedroom with en suite shower room and a further study area adjacent ? all with superb views.

Ashton House is approached via the circular drive with shrub borders and an attractive densely planted raised centrepiece with flowers and roses. There is an open fronted barn with parking for three vehicles and adjacent a garage. Formal gardens of 0.4 acre surround the house and the side walled garden is private incorporating a sun terrace which captures the afternoon and evening sun.
