Mendip View Farm is a detached Somerset longhouse located on the outskirts of the village of Kingston Seymour, a North Somerset village, voted 'Best Kept Village' on several occasions.
Mendip View is a Grade II listed 17th Century farmhouse enhanced by a splendid Virginia Creeper growing along the front elevation. In the centre half of the original stone farmhouse there are three large reception rooms, a spacious oak kitchen with a traditional oil fired Aga cooker, a long office, five bedrooms and a family bathroom. To one end of the farmhouse are the original heavy horse stables and a large hayloft. In the past this quarter of the house has been granted planning permission to convert to a "Granny Annexe" with lounge, kitchen, double bedroom and bathroom. To the other quarter end of the house is a double garage and a large hayloft above that could be converted to a further double bedroom subject to planning consent.
From the front of the house are views across miles of open countryside to the Mendip Hills. There are two large walnut trees to the front lawns. To the rear of the house is an area of level lawn with a beech hedge boundary to the yard beyond.
The farm outbuildings have separate access from the land.
To the North-West of the farmhouse, near the duck pond, is a cider barn that has been granted planning permission for conversion to a holiday let and the work has been started to keep the permission valid. To the East are a range of stone barns, stables and a former dairy and Somerset County milking parlour. The stone barns could be converted to further holiday lets subject to planning consents. In the yard adjacent to the kitchen/ porch stable door is a workshop, store room and an outside toilet. To the rear of the garden is a straw pole barn with lean to (24.38m x 6.10m). In the concrete yards there is a wooden cow kennel building (27.43m x 6.10m) and a renovated block building with 40 modern cow cubicles, a metal framed cattle shed (18.29m x 7.62m), a covered yard barn (18.29m x 9.14m), a traditional stone shippon with tiled roof (18.29m x 8.83m), a wooden silage clamp and two 500 ton concrete silage clamps. The later could be roofed over and used for a number of potential other uses subject to planning consents.
To the rear of the farm buildings are a lagoon and productive orchards of cider apples, perry pears, plums, eating apples and pears and walnut trees.
A further 73 acres, or part thereof, is also available by separate negotiation. The land qualifies for Countryside Stewardship payment and Single Farm Payment.
