Bedrooms: 4
A striking period property occupying a private secluded location, together with a detached cottage, carport, games room and stables. In all about 15 acres.

This attractive farmhouse occupies a private commanding position overlooking its own land and is of Blackdown flint elevations under a pitched tiled roof. The house has been well maintained over the years but would now benefit from some modernisation to bring it up to todays standards. The accommodation is of generous proportions and has a wealth of character features, briefly comprising an entrance hall where to the left is a rear hall with stairs rising to the first floor and a door leads through to a large dual aspect drawing room with inglenook fireplace. A door off leads to a sun room which in turn leads to a study to the rear. On the other side of the house are two sizeable reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room, utility and W.C. Adjoining the side is a fabulous glazed garden room enjoying views over the valley and a door out leads to a sun terrace, perfect for alfresco dining and summer entertaining. Upstairs are four double bedrooms with master en-suite and a generous family bathroom.


To the east of the farmhouse is a detached stone built cottage, perfect for accommodating an elderly relative, guests or additional income. It comprises a kitchen/breakfast room, shower room and a large living room on the ground floor and upstairs is a hall with two double bedrooms.


In addition to the living accommodation is a stable block containing three boxes, along with a triple garage with up and over doors and a sizable games room over, complete with kitchen and shower room. There are also two large detached barns currently used for storage but have alternative use potential, subject to the necessary planning consents.


The land surrounds to the property and is divided into a number of enclosures comprising gently sloping pasture and pockets of mature woodland. Set below the house is a small spring fed pond with pontoon further adding to the amenity appeal. The land is perfect for agricultural, equestrian or other amenity uses and in total extends to approximately 15 acres.

The property occupies a delightful rural position lying within the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a predominantly agricultural landscape primarily comprising pasture and arable land interspersed with an abundance of woodland. Despite its attractive and secluded position the property still enjoys easy access to the surrounding districts and main routes of communication.

There are thriving local communities in the nearby villages of Churchinford and Hemyock, both centres offering a post office, primary school, public house and doctor's surgery, with a sports centre also available at the latter. Wellington offers a good range of everyday shopping, banking and educational services including primary and secondary schooling and the renowned Wellington School. The Somerset County town of Taunton affords an excellent range of commercial, educational and recreational facilities, including three noted public schools.

There are good road and rail communications with access to the M5 motorway available at Wellington (J26), Taunton (J25) and Tiverton (J27). Mainline rail links to London Paddington are also available at Taunton and Tiverton Parkway. Access to the A30/A303 at Honiton provides an easy link to London and the South East with international airports at Exeter and Bristol.

The property is approached off a quiet country lane over a tarmacadam drive which leads to a car parking and turning area next to the house. The drive continues on to service the cottage and outbuildings and the adjoining land. The gardens to the front are predominantly lawned with mature shrub borders, all of which are contained within well established hedgerows. The main gardens lie to the rear and are a real selling point of the property, comprising areas of lawn interspersed with a number of mature specimen shrubs, trees and bushes which can only be fully appreciated when viewed.
