Full Details
An historic period Somerset farmhouse believed to date back to 1510, situated in a quiet village location. The original period features are retained with flagstone floors, mullion windows, fireplaces and exposed beams all blending with the fixtures you expect for modern day living making Manor Farm a very well appointed family home with flexible, light living space. In a courtyard setting the detached three bedroom barn conversion offers additional living space for extended family or holiday letting. The old cow byre attached to the farmhouse could provide additional living space and did have consent for inclusion into the main house. With mature gardens, orchard and paddock the farmhouse is one of the principal houses in the village and backs onto open fields with the Mendip Hills on the doorstep.

The Barn On the opposite side of the central courtyard area is a three bedroom single storey barn conversion with a large sitting room/kitchen with exposed beams and wooden flooring. There are three bedrooms, a family bathroom with separate shower and a cloakroom. The barn benefits from its own private parking area and a garden. The Cow Byre Attached to the farmhouse the former cow byre provides a garage and had planning consent to incorporate the barn into additional living space providing a large family kitchen/breakfast room and a playroom overlooking the gardens and paddock. Outside In a courtyard setting the house overlooks a formal lawn with a mature walnut tree as the focal point, bay trees flank the attractive stone door surround with the 1698 date stone above and a laurel hedge borders the village lane. There is ample parking and a garage to the front of the house. The remainder of the gardens lie to the rear of the house and cow byre, they are enclosed to one side by stone walls and border the paddock to the rear. There is an orchard in the corner of the garden well stocked with apple, plum and greengages sheltered by a beech hedge. The paddock is in permanent pasture and borders the neighbouring farmland to the rear.
