Huxham Farm enjoys a quiet setting and is currently owned by members of one family. It has been developed to provide 4 separate and very individual properties with several having been let as holiday homes in recent years. The owners and vendors of the Stables are now selling and extending one of the other houses as their new home.
The 4 houses are grouped together, and all have their own different identities, characteristics and boundaries. They also share certain communal areas. The Stables has gardens, yards and land and the boundaries are edged in red on the plan. It enjoys the use of communal areas shown edged in light green on the plan.
The house is a barn conversion and has such characteristics enhanced by high pitched and vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, oak timberwork and good quality stonework. These are complemented by 5 bath or shower rooms, a well-equipped kitchen and oil fired central heating with under floor heating on the ground floor and radiators on the first floor. A noteworthy feature are the various French windows which give good, direct access to the gardens.
The front door opens to an entrance hall with a cloaks cupboard (space for boots and coats), a cloakroom and a boiler room. The hall opens into a large, impressive dining hall with oak pillars and a staircase which rises to a galleried landing with a pitched ceiling with exposed beams.
A wide archway opens into the sitting room which has an inglenook fireplace with a wood burner and also French doors to a courtyard.
A small inner hall leads to a study and a ground floor bedroom with a full en suite shower room.
The heart of the house is the large open plan kitchen/dining/living room which has a tiled floor, a high vaulted ceiling and a triple aspect with 2 sets of double French doors which open to a large, paved garden terrace.
The kitchen area is well arranged with plenty of units, a central island, granite work surfaces and appliances including a range cooker, an extractor, dishwasher and a large, combined fridge/freezer.
There's plenty of space for a dining table and chairs and beyond is a living room area with space for sofas and with a fitted wood burner.
Off the kitchen is a utility room with a sink, cupboards and space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer.

About the area
Huxham Green is a small, quiet hamlet between Wells, Glastonbury and Castle Cary.
Wells is the smallest city in England (population 10,000) lying in beautiful countryside between the Somerset Levels and the Mendip Hills. There is a central marketplace (local markets twice a week), many medieval buildings including the Cathedral and moated Bishops Palace, a small but busy local shopping centre and a broad range of societies and activities.
Glastonbury's past and its present are linked with its dominant landmark, the Tor. It's been a religious centre from the times of legends. A Celtic monastery evolved into one of England's wealthiest and most influential abbeys. The town grew up alongside the Abbey and is now a thriving market town and a major tourist venue. Medieval Glastonbury - designated a conservation area - clusters around the evocative ruins of the Abbey. Castle Cary is another delightful and historic town which lies to the east, and which has a main line train station to London.
There are facilities and amenities in the surrounding towns to suit most needs and excellent state and independent schools including Strode College, Millfield, Wells, Cathedral, Hazelgrove, All Hallows, Downside, Sherborne and the Bruton schools.
