Full description

A large Somerset hill farm offering extensive and contemporary accommodation, set in 19 acres, with superb views as far as Dorset and The Quantocks.

The original farmhouse of a much larger Somerset hill farm is now contained within a substantially extended and improved building with major works carried out in the 1970s and a programme of modernisation and reconfiguration carried out in the 2000s and 2010s.

The property sits within its own 18.9 acres of land, including a six acre new wood with a summerhouse. The house has its own private tree/shrub-lined driveway. The land has been organically farmed for 50 years.

The property nestles below the brow of the hill and is naturally protected from most winds. To the East/South the view stretches 40+ miles and to the North/East the Quantocks are visible and to the south west the Blackdowns appear.

All windows are double glazed in the original style and made of Iroko wood and K-glass, substantial insulation was laid in the loft, cavity wall insulation was inserted where possible and all other walls were dry-lined and insulated, the ground floor is entirely insulated and electric under-floor heated, two air-source heaters circulate warm air, solar PV provides electricity, solar thermal heating heats the water as does the wood burning stove. The modern conservatories wrap round parts of the south and west faces, providing additional solar gain.

The practical accommodation allows plenty of room for families to enjoy this property to the full, three wood burning stoves and two conservatories add to the contemporary feel. The views from all rooms, particularly at first floor level are simply stunning across towards The Vale of Taunton Deane and Dorset and to The Quantocks.

Outside the property
There is extensive parking plus quadruple garage footing. The lawn at the rear is raised with a haha and is large enough for marquees etc. There is a spring fed pond and the lower garden stretches down to the driveway with an orchard area. In total there are 19 acres in two fields, one to the rear and one to the front with additional woodland which was replanted approximately 20 years ago.
