A beautifully situated Grade II Listed farmhouse, set within the middle of it's own land, enjoying a southerly aspect, together with outbuildings and in all about 34.61 acres.

This striking period farmhouse is believed to date back to the 1600's and is of stone elevations under a pitched, slated roof. The property boasts a wealth of character features and is well worthy of it's Grade II Listed status. The current owners have sympathetically renovated the property to an excellent standard and the accommodation now offers, an entrance hall which leads to a generous boot room with flagstone flooring and range of modern fitted units, a door off leads to a dining room with plank and muntin wall and engineered oak flooring. An opening leads through to a spacious shaker style kitchen with range of fitted base units, containing a Belfast sink and a number of integral appliances, together with exposed timber beams, island unit and inglenook fireplace. Adjacent to the kitchen is a living room, again with inglenook fireplace, enjoying views over the gardens. Also off the entrance hall is a downstairs bathroom and triple aspect study which could also be used as a downstairs bedroom completing the downstairs accommodation.

Two flights of stairs leads to the first floor where there are four double bedrooms and two bathrooms. To the east of the property is an adjoining unconverted stone barn which (STP) could easily be incorporated to the main house providing an additional reception room, gym or other possible uses.

Harts Farm is situated on the outskirts of the small village of Huish Champflower and enjoys a superb southerly outlook over adjoining unspoilt countryside. The property enjoys complete privacy and seclusion nestling within its own grounds. The town of Wiveliscombe (3.5 miles) provides an excellent range of day to day facilities, including primary and secondary schooling whilst the county town of Taunton is approximately 14 miles away where a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities will be found, including three noted public schools, Sixth Form College and major hospital. Taunton enjoys excellent communication links with the rest of the UK with M5 interchange (junction 25) and rail link to London Paddington.

The property is set back from the public highway and is accessed via a private drive which meanders through it's own land and leads to a car parking and turning area to the side of the house. Here is a modern clear span covered yard (18.4m x 18m) and set below the farmhouse is a traditional stable block (7.15m x 10.6) comprising four stables and a tack room. To the rear is an adjoining former piggery (5.7m x 11.43m) ideal for housing poultry or other small livestock.
