Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Old Farm retains much of its character and charm, yet offers family living for today's way of life. It is believed to date back to the 16th century and is a fine example of a Somerset longhouse, which remained a working farm until the 1970's. It now sits in a generous garden plot of approximately 0.6 acres and is in the perfect spot for a family to enjoy a rural lifestyle yet remain within easy commuting distance of Bristol and Bath. As well as the main farmhouse, there is a stone barn with planning permission to convert either into an independent residential property, or annexe.

The front door, sheltered by a pretty porch, leads into the hallway and off to the right is the sitting room with a truly impressive inglenook fireplace with a substantial beam over and bread oven to the side. There are 'back stairs' off the hall, but continuing along the ground floor you come to the spacious dining room with parquet flooring and French doors on to the garden.

Next along are the snug/family room and the sun room with its lovely aspect over the rear garden. At the end of the hallway is the farmhouse kitchen with quarry tiled floor, oil fired 4-oven Aga, granite worktops and aspect over the front garden - a sociable family space. Off the kitchen is a utility/boot room with a downstairs cloakroom and walk-in pantry off.

Stairs from the kitchen are a beautiful feature, being a wide spiral, with treads telling a story of generations past and with rope balustrade.

There are window seats along the landing, with a bathroom to one end, then 5 double bedrooms including master bedroom at the other end with 'Jack and Jill' shower room, also accessed from the landing.

The property sits in a total plot of approximately 0.6 acres, with private gardens to both front and rear. There are mature apple, plum, cherry and walnut trees and the garden to the rear has a flagstone patio, lawn and a vegetable and fruit garden. There are small stone storage sheds and a DETACHED STONE BARN with planning permission 17/P/0002/F to convert into residential accommodation. This permission allows for a new driveway access to be created to serve the farmhouse if the barn were to be used as an independent dwelling. It could, of course, be used as an annexe to the main house if desired.

Churchill offers local shopping and social facilities including a 24-hour petrol station and mini-market and the nearby villages of Congresbury and Winscombe have a more comprehensive range of shops. There is a large, modern medical practice in the village. Primary schooling is available close by and the excellent Churchill Academy and Sixth Form with its adjoining sports complex is only a short walk away. Bristol and Weston-super-Mare are within easy commuting distance with a regular bus service available and there are two M5 motorway access points, at Clevedon and St.Georges and easy access to the M32 and M4 for travelling to London. Bristol International airport is just 7 miles distant along the A38. The village of Yatton (approximately 4 miles distant) has a mainline railway station with direct services to London. The countryside around offers many activities including riding, sailing, fishing, walking and several golf courses.
