A charming Chew Valley farmhouse with 25 acres, stabling and extensive outbuildings.
The hamlet of Sutton Wick sits to the north of Bishop Sutton which is a pretty village in the heart of the Chew Valley. In proximity is the Chew Valley Lake, notable for sailing and its extensive wildlife. There are a range of other leisure pursuits within proximity including a number of golf courses, Bath Race Course and various interesting walks and cycle rides. The village itself offers a variety of amenities including a post office and general store suitable for everyday needs. Educational facilities are also well catered for with a primary school in the village and the popular Chew Valley secondary school a short drive away. For private sector education, both Bristol and Bath being almost equidistant, offer a range of excellent schools.
Located in the heart of the Chew Valley, Weeks Green Farm is truly a hidden gem. Tucked away from the road and set amongst the most glorious rolling countryside, the house sits within some 25 acres of gardens, orchard and paddocks with first class equestrian facilities and a series of substantial outbuildings. Believed to date to the 16th century in part, with further 17th century extensions, the farmhouse has a most appealing and relaxed ambiance and will appeal to those seeking an idyllic country lifestyle within very easy reach of both Bath and Bristol. Excluding the outbuildings, the house offers accommodation of some 4500 square feet with one wing currently being used as a self contained annexe. At the heart of the home is a wonderful kitchen/family room that runs the full depth of the property (over 45 feet in length). At one end is a smartly appointed kitchen with Aga stove extending through to an informal dining area and the large family sitting area with wood burning stove. Glazed doors open to a sheltered and sunny rear terrace. Set off this room is a huge utility/boot room again, doubling as a breakfast area with access to both front and rear with walk in storage cupboard, and a shower room with WC. Certainly a practical and generous area with durable stone flooring ideal for accessing direct from the stable yard with muddy boots and general outdoor paraphernalia. To the far side of the kitchen is a lovely drawing room with a superb inglenook fireplace and wood burner, leading to a further snug with exposed ceiling beams and dual aspect windows set within deep reveals. A third reception room (currently used as part of the annexe) is set to the rear of the drawing room with the benefit of its own private access to the gardens. A second kitchen with small utility cloakroom opens to a sunny gravelled seating area and lawned gardens. The first floor bedroom within the annexe features a high vaulted ceiling, exposed roof trusses and en suite bathroom. From the main staircase a well lit landing leads to an enormous master bedroom commanding views in three directions and large enough to incorporate an en suite if so desired. The second double bedroom is off the first landing together with a large family bathroom with Jacuzzi bath set within marble surround and twin basins. A further en suite bedroom has terrific individual character and can be approached from either end of the property. This room features a quirky and fun mezzanine level. Bedrooms four and five share the second bathroom and the back staircase leading down to the annexe.
The house is surrounded by beautiful, well tended gardens with a choice of seating areas on all sides and currently laid out with a very pretty enclosed lawn area dedicated for the use of the annexe. A productive orchard next to the drive includes mature Pear, Apple and Plum trees and an enclosed chicken run sits next to a large hard standing area that is currently used as a play area for children (formerly used to site a horse walker). The three barns and open log store are currently used for garden machinery, workshop and housing the oil tank but could equally be adapted for secure car storage for those with such requirements. It is worth nothing that the four stone built stores immediately next to the rear of the property lend themselves perfectly to conversion to a larger self contained annexe for a dependant relative or to generate additional rental income. The stable yard has six loose boxes, tack room and feed store and a pretty wildlife pond lies at the far end of the 4.7 acre lower paddock with a manege above and further fenced paddocks on the eastern hillside extending to the remainder o f the 25 acres. The view from the gazebo at the top of this hill across Chew Valley and the lakes is simply breath taking.
Acreage: 25 Acres
