Full description

Grade II listed farmhouse in a very rural and peaceful location and with wonderful views of the Quantock Hills. Courtyard of traditional stone buildings suitable for conversion. In all about 4.82 acres (further paddock of 3.58 acres available by separate negotiation)

Lower Preston Farm is in the heart of the Taunton Vale between the Quantock and Brendon Hills. The house is a charming, thatched Grade II listed stone farmhouse that centres on a traditional courtyard, with the house on the southern and western sides and the traditional stone buildings to the north and east. The house has 2 south facing reception rooms and a large entrance hall in the southern wing, with the farmhouse kitchen, utility and office in the western section. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Whilst the property appears to be structurally sound and very habitable, it would benefit from some updating in certain areas.

Planning permission has been granted to create an office out of the attached garage and log store in the south-eastern corner, but this could be adapted for alternative uses, subject to the appropriate planning permission.

The extensive gardens are on the southern side of the house and enjoy fantastic views of the Quantocks. There is a wonderful two storey outbuilding and a workshop/garage, both of which have been recently re-roofed and would be suitable for a variety of uses, subject to the appropriate planning permissions. To the west of the main courtyard is a useful agricultural building.

The house is surrounded by its land which totals 4.82 acres in this Lot (Lot 1). There is a separate paddock totalling 3.58 acres (Lot 2) that is available by separate negotiation.


Lydeard St Lawrence. Taunton 12 miles (London Paddington 1 hour 40 minutes), Exeter 37 miles. All distances and times approximate.
