Fackrells Farm appears to date back to the early 19th Century and has been extended over time to provide an attractive village residence. Built of rendered stone, brick and cobb elevations under a pitched tiled roof, the property provides flexible four bedroom living accommodation arranged over two floors. In brief the house comprises; a traditional cross passage hallway with impressive reception rooms to either side both enjoying large inglenook fire places, exposed timber roof beams and attractive window seats. To the rear of the property is a kitchen which adjoins an outside utility area which could be incorporated into the house if you so wished. A flight of stairs from a rear hall gives access to the first floor where there are four bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate WC. The real appeal of the property is the outside space and the courtyard garden, together with a two storey dovecote and range of modern and traditional buildings which have scope for a number of alternatives uses subject to planning. Adjacent to the building is a large hardened yard and further afield is a pony paddock ideal for those with an equestrian interest. In all the property extends to approximately 2.69 acres as shown shaded pink on the attached identification form.

The village of North Newton lies approximately 6 miles from Taunton providing a primary school, village pub and church. The Taunton to Bridgwater canal path is close by providing course fishing and toe-path for walking and cycling. Taunton offers an extensive range of shopping, educational, sporting and cultural facilities with a direct line rail link to London Paddington. Motorway access can be gained approximately 3 miles away at junction 24 of the M5 motorway and the cities of Bristol and Exeter are within an hours drive in either direction, both hosting international airports.

The property is approached directly off the public highway via an attractive set of brick entrance pillars where there is a concrete front garden which leads to front door.
