Surrounded by beautiful unspoilt countryside, Marshwood provides an ideal setting within easy reach of many of the area’s most favoured landmarks. The nearby towns of Minehead, Watchet and Williton provide everyday amenities and facilities, whilst the county town of Taunton, about 20 miles to the East offers a wider range of shops and schooling facilities. Taunton also has main line rail connections and access to the M5 at junction 25.

The property is well situated for those who enjoy exploring the coast and countryside, being within easy reach of the West Somerset Coastline, Exmoor, the Quantock Hills and the Brendon Hills providing many miles of foot and bridle paths. There are many popular beauty spots a short distance from the property, including the historic and medieval village of Dunster with its famous castle and Yarn Market. Also, the West Somerset Railway, a historic heritage railway of about 20 miles, with frequent steam engine services provides additional charm and interest to the area.

Description

The property is available as a whole, or in two Lots as follows:

MARSHWOOD FARMHOUSE & BUILDINGS

Marshwood Farmhouse comprises a handsome Grade II* listed farmhouse, set in beautifully kept gardens and grounds, a selection of modern and traditional outbuildings with plenty of future development potential and a pasture paddock, all of which enjoy wonderful views over the surrounding area.

The farmhouse was historically linked to Cleeve Chapel, having previously been part of the Luttrell and then Crown Estate. The property is not known to have been publicly marketed for sale at any time since its construction.

Originally a manor house, the building dates from the late 15th Century, with 16th and 17th Century additions. Retaining much charm and character throughout, with many original features, including ornate plasterwork, Hamstone windows and a stunning elm staircase, the building requires internal renovation throughout.

The ground floor offers a fine selection of reception rooms, two kitchens and the original dairy. There are seven bedrooms on the first floor, one of which is ensuite, and two bathrooms. The layout of the building lends itself to multi-generational living and an annexe could be created if required. In addition, further accommodation could be created by converting the stable and hay loft on the east wing of the building, subject to the necessary consents.

Outside, there is a significant range of modern and traditional outbuildings, including stabling, workshops, a large storage barn, cart store and garage. The gardens surrounding the house are a particularly attractive feature of the property, offering large areas of lawn, a vegetable garden and orchard. From the gardens, there are far reaching views over the surrounding area and across to the Bristol Channel. In front of the farmhouse, there is a large courtyard, parking area and a paddock, which runs down to the property’s southern boundary.

BUILDINGS AT MARSHWOOD

To the west of the farmhouse and gardens, there is a substantial selection of modern and traditional agricultural buildings, which can be accessed either from the driveway, or the south west corner of the courtyard in front of the Farmhouse. Until recently, these buildings have been used as agricultural livestock buildings and storage facilities and there are also 7 grain silos. To the north of the driveway, there is a substantial feed store/lambing shed, which could be converted into an indoor riding school and stabling if required, subject to the necessary consents.

With the relevant consents in place, the buildings to the south of the drive could be used or converted for a variety of different uses, including storage facilities, conversion to holiday accommodation, agricultural enterprises, or simply demolished and removed to extend the land and holding of the property as a whole.

Please be aware that these buildings are subject to an uplift
clause and that the vendors intend to retain rights of access. For further details, please contact the agents.
