North Acre Farm is an impressive property that commands a stunning location on the hill in Bratton Seymour. Such a location means almost all the rooms in the house benefit from the exceptional views across the valley. Such views must really be seen to be believed. North Acre Farm was built in 2002 using handmade bricks and tiles resulting in a traditional style.

The ground floor is well laid out with good sized reception rooms throughout. The entrance of the property leads in to a grand dining hall stretching the full width of the property. The impressive triple aspect drawing room features a Jetmaster and is wonderfully light providing a perfect space for entertaining.

The kitchen/breakfast room and drawing room lead off the dining hall. The kitchen/ breakfast room is perfect for modern family living. The adjoining garden room is very much "open plan" with the kitchen, making a versatile space which is flooded with light. The kitchen is well equipped with a four door Aga , electric oven, fitted cupboards, induction hob and walk in larder, with space for a large kitchen dining table. The kitchen faces east and catches the morning sun. This room leads through to a good sized boot room with back door access to the garden, a utility room and cloakroom.

On the first floor is the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and separate dressing room, the room also features a gas fire place. Two further double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms complete the accommodation on the first floor. Stairs lead up to the second floor and open on to a landing from which, two additional double bedrooms lead off and a family bathroom.

Stable Cottage

Stable Cottage, which is self-contained, has private access from the village lane and is attached to the barn providing useful secondary accommodation to the main house. The cottage has a spacious open plan kitchen and sitting room with views over the spectacular valley beyond. A double bedroom with ensuite bathroom, boot room, utility and cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor are two additional double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
