A historic Grade II listed, detached period residence situated in an elevated position with far reaching views. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and woodland extending to approximately 2.6 acres in total. No onward chain.

Sandford Manor is a Grade II listed residence which has a long history, as far back as being mentioned in the Domesday Book. Owned by Lords and Earls the property was also in the possession of the Broughton family during the 15th & 16th Century. Thomas Broughton left his mark on Sandford Manor in the form of the front porch, built and dated 1570. There are a wealth of period features to include; original Mullion windows, flagstone floors, fireplaces, oak panelling, oak doors and beams, some of which came from old ships. There is also evidence within the ground floor timbers of the north facing rooms, of it's former importance as a medieval open hall. Whilst the character has been retained the property is now in need of renovation and refurbishment but with the benefit of a new roof added in 2007.
This fantastic period property is situated in an enviable and elevated position on Sandford Hill, overlooking Wembdon and with far reaching views towards the Quantock hills beyond.
The original front door opens into a dining hall with flagstone floors and oak staircase rising up to the first floor. From the dining hall there is access into the study, utility and old cider barn which could lend itself to conversion (subject to planning and listed building consent). There are winding steps leading down to a useful cellar. The grand dining room with inglenook fireplace and south facing views over the gardens, is a particular feature of the property. The dining room is perfectly placed to grant access into the kitchen and sitting room. On the first floor there is a gallery landing with oak panelling which leads to the 5 bedrooms; 4 doubles and 1 single, with oak panelling continued through, along with beams and original fireplaces. Also on this floor and completing the accommodation, are 2 bathrooms and a shower room.
Sandford Manor is accessed via a long driveway leading up from Sandford Hill and sweeping around the side of the property, through a five bar gate to the parking area and a number of outbuildings to include; a double garage, workshop and log store. Again these could be suitable for conversion, subject to any planning and necessary consents. The gardens are outstanding and completely surround the property. There is a 'secret' garden through a tall manicured hedge which offers privacy and seclusion and is laid to lawn with a variety of mature shrubs and trees. There is a damson glade with an abundance of wild flowers and trees. An orchard can be found to the south, along with woodland running alongside this boundary. The front garden is beautifully landscaped with pathway dividing into 2, lawns to either side along with ornamental hedgerow, surrounded by stone walling.
An internal viewing is essential to fully appreciate this magnificent property.

The property is situated in an elevated position on the favoured west side of the town of Bridgwater within the area known as Wembdon. Within this area is a Church and close by is a Post Office/Store and Primary School. The town centre of Bridgwater is within about a mile and a half or so and this provides multiple shopping, leisure and scholastic facilities. There is a regular bus service into town, a mainline rail link approximately 2 miles distance and access to the M5 motorway at Junctions 23 and 24.
