Manor Farm, Leigh On Mendip

A spacious detached 5 bedroom farmhouse full of period features with nearly 2000sqft of stone outbuildings, plus by further negotiation approx 3&1/2 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. This 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 is a further bedroom, study/store room 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.

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. 3 & 1/2 acres (available by further negotiation) . There is also the potential to buy another 10 acres behind this land by further negotiation.
