Mead Farm is a detached period stone farmhouse which has been well modernised in recent years and is beautifully presented by the owners. It has stone elevations with double glazed windows and oil fired central heating, enhanced by period features of flagged floors, beamed ceilings, Norfolk latch old pine ledge and brace doors and open fireplaces. It occupies a secluded position in a rural valley. There are two further properties in the same location.
Upper Littleton is an area located between Chew Magna and Winford, a small hamlet of period property on a south facing hillside. Winford offers local village facilities and primary school - serviced by a bus to the door! Chew Magna offers more comprehensive facilities: a comprehensive school, village shops, vet, bank etc..
Mead Farm is located down a long driveway leading from Littleton Lane. After the turning onto the private road to the Farm and two other properties, the lane turns into RUPP - ideal for horseriders and dog walkers. The private road leads on to the driveway in front of the three properties. Mead Farm is directly in front of you and has open views and outlook. The courtyard area to the front gives access to the double garage and a timber five bar gate leads around to the rear of the property onto the garden and land.
The gardens are very attractive, with a wide flagged terrace on the west side of the house, flanked by mature herbaceous borders and pond. A rose clad archway leads away from this area on to the large sweeping lawn. Gateways lead into the post and rail paddocks and a walk way takes you through the vegetable garden into the stable area. There are four stables and concrete yard area leading into the paddocks.
The accommodation is laid over two floors and is quite beautifully presented - it has the atmosphere of 'vintage chic' and despite the beamed ceilings and open fireplaces the ceiling heights are good. An open porch takes you into the spacious hall with flagged floor and old pine doors leading to the staircase, sitting room and snug/study. The sitting room also has a flagged floor, wide open fireplace with beam over, and large keystone to one side. The snug/study has a fireplace fitted with a woodburner. The bespoke farmhouse kitchen is fitted with quality units and granite work surfaces. There is a cream Aga, and high ceiling with exposed beams. This room is large enough to accommodate a table, sofa etc. French doors lead onto the front courtyard. Beside the kitchen is a family room with a more contemporary atmosphere and French doors onto the garden. To the rear of the house is a good size utilty/laundry room and cloakroom. The stairs lead from the hall to a half landing where there is plenty of storage, and a family bathroom with modern white suite with marble surround and rain head shower over. The stairs continue to the first floor, where a wide landing gives access to each of the double bedrooms, a bathroom and en suite. All the rooms take full advantage of the lovely rural views across the garden and land to open countryside.
