About This Property

An attractive and beautifully presented detached country residence occupying an accessible semi-rural position, together with a detached cottage, games room/office, pasture and stables affording considerable lifestyle, amenity and equestrian appeal. EPC = F

Cuttifords Door Farm represents a most attractive and unspoilt residential holding occupying a delightful position within a highly regarded part of South Somerset. The property has been in the current vendor’s ownership since 1987 and has been completely refurbished and extended. The property is centered upon a spacious detached traditional flint stone farmhouse which is understood to date from circa 1850 and affords beautifully presented family accommodation. The house is full of character and exhibits a wealth of traditional features and the sale thereby affords the opportunity to acquire a character country residence in a most appealing rural setting.

The adjacent cottage, known as Swifts Barn, adds to the residential appeal of the property and is well suited to provide either further family accommodation or an additional income source. Furthermore, the office will offer appeal to those seeking to work from home whilst the games room provides a wonderful hospitality area.

The excellent combination of stables and traditional pasture create a wonderfully diverse habitat and provide an excellent setting to the house. The diversity of the land means that the property may be well suited to those prospective purchasers with equestrian, smallholding, conservation or other amenity interests.

In addition the extensive workshop area, offered with commercial saw bench and equipment, provides the opportunity, subject to the necessary planning consents, to continue a commercial activity under new ownership.

Cuttifords Door Farm extends in total to about 6.47 Acres (2.62 Ha) and is offered for sale as a whole.
