Description

A beautifully appointed and extensively renovated Grade II listed farmhouse. Dibdens Farm has origins dating back to the 16th century with more modern and contemporary extensions added. A traditional Somerset longhouse, the property is constructed from stone and lime rendered elevations under a pan tiled roof with two storey family accommodation and a variety of outbuildings which offer enormous scope. Standing amongst private gardens and enjoying open views over pasture, the property has its own natural lake which is well stocked. Beautifully poised Dibdens provides an idyllic country lifestyle and yet all the trappings of vibrant Bristol life are within proximity.

Principal rooms include traditional features such as inglenook fireplaces with detail including oak lintels, beams and stone supports. Windows are stone mullion with leaded insets and ? seats and the original flagstone floor remains in the vestibule and reception hall. The dining room has a stone staircase to the first floor, one of three to access the bedrooms. The farmhouse kitchen includes an Aga with additional cooking facilities available in the back kitchen which includes a comprehensive range of units and appliances. The morning room is more intimate and recently refurbished using traditional materials and features oak beam and trusses with retractable glazed doors which survey the immediate terrace, gardens and orchard. A ground floor suite provides privacy for guests. The first floor has four bedrooms served via 3 staircases. The master bedroom has a dedicated and sizeable en suite , whilst the remainder are served by bathrooms and a shower room.
There are gardens surrounding the property which are principally laid to lawn and incorporate the aforementioned ornamental lake. An orchard and small paddock are suitable for grazing and the stone built stables are large enough to accommodate six horses and sit adjacent to the principal home. The garage complex which is open fronted has been converted at first floor level to create ancillary accommodation and is suitable for those who wish to work from home or indeed accommodate a dependent relative.
