Full description

Manor Farm, Leigh On Mendip

A spacious detached 6 bedroom farmhouse full of period features with nearly 2000sqft of stone outbuildings, plus a 3 bedroom cottage, approx 5 acres of land (more available) in a pretty village on the Mendip Hills between Bath Bristol and Frome.

The Property

Manor Farm, one of the principal houses in the village, is a very attractive Grade II listed farmhouse that dates from 1698. The main house is full of character including flagstone floors, an inglenook fireplace with wood burner, beamed ceilings, window shutters and a large farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room with Aga and hand built units. These period details are complimented by the luxury of modern bathrooms and the dual aspect of many other rooms means the property has good light.

The spacious accommodation includes a drawing room, dining room, study/snug, kitchen, utility/boot room and on the first floor there are 4 bedrooms (one with en suite bathroom), plus family bathroom and there are two further bedrooms and a shower room on the second floor.

The house could be further extended to incorporate the adjacent stone outbuildings (nearly 2000 sqft), which have part consent for conversion to additional accommodation. The plan was to incorporate part of this barn into additional living space in the form of a family kitchen/breakfast room and a playroom overlooking the gardens and fields.

A further bonus to this property is the attractive 3 bedroom single storey detached stone cottage which was converted from a barn and which is an independent property in its own right. It has a large open plan living area with kitchen, plus cloakroom, three bedrooms and a bathroom.


To the front and to the rear of Manor Farm there is a formal area of lawned garden and at the front there is more than ample parking in the yard. To the rear of the stone outbuildings there is a paddock, orchard and a meadow which extends to approx. 5 acres. There is the potential to buy another 10 acres behind this land by further negotiation. The cottage has its own parking and garden, which is set away from the main house.
