Situation - Park Farmhouse is situated just off a country lane, which runs between the villages of West Hatch and Hatch Beauchamp, both have thriving communities and amenities to include a primary school, public houses, garage, hotel/restaurant, churches, playing fields and a village hall. The A358 is easily accessible from the property, which links the market town of Ilminster, with the County Town of Taunton, which as expected, has excellent schooling in both the state and independent sectors, a diverse shopping centre and excellent transport links through both the motorway network and mainline railway station.

Description - Park Farmhouse is an excellent opportunity to acquire a delightful Grade II Listed period farmhouse, which still retains a wealth of character and charm, having thought to date back originally to the 1480s. The property has undergone a number of later alterations, with the latest being during the early 90s, when our vendors took ownership and began an extensive restoration process. The property is offered to the market in need of further modernisation and has planning permission granted for an adjoining three bedroom annexe, which is currently a shell requiring completion.

Accommodation - A wooden front door opens into a cross passage hallway, which continues in an L-shape to provide access to three reception rooms, the principal staircase to the first floor and under stairs toilet and wash hand basin. There is a beautiful flagstone floor, which runs through the hallway and continues into two of the three reception rooms. The first of which is centred upon an open fireplace with stone surround mantel and hearth, has a partially beamed wall and ceiling, and a dual aspect to the front and rear. The front window also has the benefit of a delightful window seat. Next door is the study, which enjoys a similar frontal aspect through a sixteen pane sash window, and has a fine raised inglenook fireplace with stone surround, hearth and partially brick herringbone back. The study also has a partially beamed wall and ceiling. The open inglenook fireplace in the dining room is also a fine feature of the property and still has its bread oven in situ, enjoys a dual aspect to the front and rear and has some built in storage space into one of the alcoves, beside the fireplace. Two steps rise from the dining room through a door into the lounge/sitting room, which is also centred upon a fireplace, this time with an inset wood burning stove. The sitting room also has a dual aspect through two windows set either side of the fireplace and some glazed double doors, which open onto a patio area in the rear garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wooden wall and base units with space and plumbing for a dishwasher and free standing American fridge freezer. It also includes two cooking options through a solid fuel Rayburn and a Range master cooker, with electric oven and gas hobs (gas not connected) and a Belfast sink set under a side window.

The primary staircase leads to a landing, with doors to bedrooms four and five. Bedroom three is accessed through bedroom four and bedroom two can be accessed through bedroom five or from the secondary staircase. The landing at the top of the secondary staircase provides access to the family bathroom and bedroom one. The bathroom is fitted with an electric shower, bath with shower attachment over, WC, wash hand basin, laminate flooring and airing cupboard. There is also an additional WC next door. Bedroom one benefits an en-suite shower room comprising, a shower enclosure, wash hand basin, WC, partially tiled mosaic walls and wooden flooring.

The Annexe - Our vendors have had planning granted to create a three bedroom self-contained annexe, adjoining the south western elevation of the main farmhouse. Work has started on the annexe and has its roof and external walls built, but requires the next buyer to take it from a shell to its full potential. The planning was granted for an open plan kitchen/living area and a downstairs WC on the ground floor, with three bedrooms, one being a master en-suite, and a family bathroom on the first floor.

Outside - There are two drives into the property, leading to a parking, turning area and two garages which have been created within the annexe. From the parking area there is a path leading to the front door, which dissects a well-stocked bed in front of the property and an expanse of lawn. Also by the parking area is a stable block comprising 6 stables, which are in need of modernisation, with a concrete turnout yard and the first of two paddocks beyond. The second paddock is just over 2.5 acres and situated on the other side of the lane to the north of the property. Behind Park Farmhouse are some private rear gardens, which can be accessed through the property or beside the garages. There is a delightful patio area on two levels outside the sitting room, which looks over the rear gardens towards a number of mature specimen trees.

Services - Mains electricity, private drainage in the form of a treatment plant, private water metered from the neighbouring farmer and a combination of oil fired and electric heating.

Additional Land - There will be the option for the purchaser(s) of Park Farmhouse to buy some additional land off the neighbouring farmer at a set price. Please contact us for further details.

Directions - From Taunton, junction 25 of the M5, proceed in a southerly direction on the A358 towards Ilminster, continuing over the Thornfalcon traffic lights and down the hill, taking the first turning on the left signposted to Hatch Beauchamp. Continue towards Hatch Beauchamp for a short while before taking the second right towards West Hatch, passing under the viaduct where Park Farmhouse can be found shortly beyond, on the left hand side.
