The beautifully restored, stained glass front door opens onto a spacious entrance hall featuring wooden flooring and the original Victorian staircase leading to the first floor. To the left, there is a newly carpeted, sitting room, with a window looking out to the front of the property and a cast iron fireplace with wooden mantel and surround. The dining room on the right, features flagstone flooring and has another fine fireplace with wooden mantel and surround, sourced from a local company. The hallway leads to a spacious family kitchen featuring more flagstone flooring, a large island, gas fired 6 ring Aga (which fires the central heating however additional electric underfloor heating is also installed towards the rear of the house), integrated appliances including wine fridge, double Belfast sink, boiling water tap, ample granite worktop space and stylish wooden units. This 'heart of the home' was beautifully designed and fitted around ten years ago by a local Somerset designer to suit this fine, period property. Additionally in the kitchen, there is a triple aspect snug for those who want to relax in this social space. Between the kitchen and the dining room, is a walk-through pantry which you can access through a door under the stairs. This is a useful space when entertaining guests to prepare drinks, canapes and dinners. There is a further snug, which was once a cider press room of a generous size with tiled floor, Velux windows and a wooden burning stove. The spacious conservatory, currently being used as a gym, has a stunning skylight feature and flagstone flooring, and looks over the terraced area and rear garden.
As you walk back to the kitchen and through a separate corridor, you will find the study, utility room, separate shower room/WC and porch.
The cosy study has generous built-in shelving to either side of a wood burning stove, dual aspect windows and wooden flooring. The utility room features bespoke storage units, granite worktops, a window positioned by the Belfast sink and spot lighting. The spacious porch is located across the corridor, perfect for storing coats and muddy wellies.
The first floor has an attractive, wide landing that leads to 6 double bedrooms and a family bathroom. All bedrooms are generously proportioned with stunning sash windows as focal points allowing lots of natural light. Three of the rooms are double aspect and two have en suite shower rooms. There is an exceptionally spacious, family bathroom with one of three triple aspects being a full-length sash, overlooking the lawn. The bathroom includes a luxurious, roll top bath, his-and-hers wash basins in a vanity unit and a separate shower cubicle.
Approaching 3 acres of land, there are lots of themed areas surrounding the property. From the snug is a terraced area, perfect for al fresco entertaining, there is an area of raised beds for home veg production and poly tunnels for the enthusiastic gardener. To the front and sides of the property are areas of lawn with mature trees including a beautiful willow and a further lawn ideal for doubling up as a football or rugby pitch. There is a further, wilder field on the edge of the property.
Outbuildings include a double garage with fast charging point for electric vehicles, an 'outside privy', haybarn, woodstore and further garage. Some work has been done on the long barn but, along with the milking parlour, both are ripe for renovation if desired. There is also an electric gate to the parking apron in front of the garage. CCTV has also been installed around the property for security.

SELLERS' INSIGHT "Moorland Farm is a handsome period farmhouse set on the edge of the Somerset moors and it's truly a fabulous home for a sociable young family. We enjoy the sense of peace and privacy, yet everything we need is easily accessible," say the current owners.
"We're close to the village of Wedmore which has a good choice of clubs to enjoy, including tennis and football, as well as a butcher, dentist, GP surgery, cafes and shops. Our village has a lovely sense of community and its very family friendly with a superb range of schools within a 30-minute drive. There's plenty to do in the local area too, including day trips to Glastonbury, Wells, Bristol, and Bath. It's feels like we all the benefits of a peaceful rural life, as we're not surrounded by big developments, but it's just a short drive to the M5 and that's been particularly important to us for work purposes."
"The amount of space both inside and out is amazing and we knew it would be a perfect home for us when we first came to look around 14 years ago. I The property has been extensively renovated throughout but the highlight has been the addition of the extension which has given us an extra bedroom and a huge kitchen area. The kitchen is the centre of our home and it's perfect for day-to-day family life and entertaining as we all gather round the large central island and catch up with friends over cheese and wine."
"Our outside space is gated, so it's incredibly private and our children could run riot and enjoy the garden in complete safety. We have kept chickens in the orchard area and we often see deer wandering through the garden. The huge patio leads to a lawned area where we can easily accommodate a marquee which is useful when we are entertaining. We've celebrated many family birthdays and BBQs here as the inside space has a great flow and there's plenty of room for parking."
"Moorland Farm has it all; space, location and potential. The outbuildings, including the old cow shed, are currently empty shells but they are ripe for re-development. It's an amazing opportunity to create even more space for family or even an office to work from home."
