Spring Head Farm is a detached period farmhouse, arguably located in one of the most attractive settings in North Somerset. It has white rendered stone elevations under a tiled roof, with attractive windows and doors. The family house is located up a long drive with its traditional outbuildings, paddocks, walled garden and orchard. The property is quite charming with 4/5 bedroom accommodation and although modernised, it has not compromised the period features and charm of the location.
Upper Langford is located between Blagdon and Churchill, with easy access to the A38, making it ideal for the commuter to Bristol, the M5 and the airport. There is a pub at nearby Burrington and Rickford and village shops and schools in Churchill and Blagdon. It nestles under the lea of the wooded slopes of the Mendip Hills in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
There are several entrance doors into the house; the front entrance leads into a central hall with herringbone hardwood floor, which in turn leads to the sitting room, dining room and kitchen breakfast room. The sitting room has a large stone fireplace with heavy beam over and window seats overlooking the garden to the front and rear. The separate dining room is charming with a door to the rear terrace and period fireplace fitted with a woodburner. The kitchen is a light airy space with cream painted units, inglenook fireplace inset with 'Stanley' range style heating and cooking unit, and bay windows overlooking the walled garden. A side entrance through a very attractive walled courtyard leads to the rear entrance into a sizeable boot room, utility and kitchen.
The original staircase rises to the first floor where there are four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Each room has a delightful aspect over the garden and land. A second staircase leads to the 'attic' bedroom which is a super playroom, 5th bedroom or office.
Spring Head Farm has a long drive approach through timber gates, this is shared with one other property (currently only used occasionally). The drive leads up past the outbuildings - there are three detached buildings, each stone and tile with attractive joinery and hayloft doors, and two smaller buildings. One is two storey, the other a stable, and the other used as a cart and tractor garage.
There is convenient and plentiful parking beside the outbuildings.
At the top of the drive a gate in an old stone wall leads into the walled garden and to the front entrance. The flagged courtyard, with potting shed and small outbuilding beside, leads to the rear entrance and boot room.
The gardens are gorgeous - there is a formal walled garden to the front with high stone walls and an abundance of herbaceous planting, a Wisteria clad arch leads through a gateway in the wall into the orchard. The orchard has a number of fruit trees. The gardens sweep around the east side of the house to the side and rear, with access to a footpath into the coombe. There is an expanse of lawn bordering the post and rail fencing dividing the garden and paddocks area to the rear (south) and west of the house. There are five bar gates from the outbuildings leading into the paddocks - beside which is a chicken coup and children's play area.
