About This Property

Nestled in beautiful rolling South Somerset countryside with a lovely open aspect, sits this fine 17th Century Grade II listed Stone Farmhouse. Rich in character and history with beautifully manicured gardens and paddocks, extending to 3.118 acres and with a fantastic stone barn offering huge potential.

Having once been leased to Lord Hinton who ‘reserved to himself the parlour and chamber above‘ Hill Farm House is rich in history and retains much of its original 17th Century charm and character features. Arguably one of the finest farmhouses in the area it has been part of the Lane Brothers Farm for many years under the Brown Family’s occupation. The property sits in a peaceful, tucked away position and is only just over 4 miles from the popular market town of Ilminster and just under 7 miles from Crewkerne with its mainline station to London Waterloo.
The farmhouse offers a traditional living style with three main reception rooms set to the front of the house, all with eye catching fireplaces and large south facing windows, allowing the light to flood in throughout the day. There is a traditional cross passage hallway which leads to a rear hall area and a ground floor cloakroom, along with a glazed rear lean to and the large boiler/utility room. Set to the rear of the house is a wonderful open kitchen family space with a large fireplace and charming gently sloping flagstone floor, believed to have been the room in which the farm used to make cheese. Steps lead down into the main kitchen area with a range of units and an electric AGA. At the rear of the kitchen is a summer garden room with fireplace, two sets of glazed doors providing access and views to the beautiful gardens.
On the first floor an impressive main landing gives access to three double bedrooms, each with their own character features. The principal room benefits from a traditional en-suite with freestanding bath. There is also a main bathroom with freestanding bath and large shower. At the rear wing of the house and accessed both by a connecting door from the dressing room and a separate staircase from the kitchen is a further good size double bedroom and bathroom, both of which have Muntin panelling. The dressing room also has a door through to the principal bedroom. The farmhouse sits in beautifully manicured and part walled gardens, which have been created by our vendors during their 9 year occupation and would be equally suited to retirement or raising a family able to enjoy all that they now offer. There is a separate vegetable garden, orchard area and paddocks to the North and East of the gardens. A further paddock sits to the south of the recently re-laid drive with a small copse adjoining the large parking area.
To the West of the farm is a large detached barn currently used as storage space, with an adjoining lean to that has been converted to kennels with an enclosed run leading onto the garden. This barn has previously had planning permission to convert into a gym/store /playroom under permission 10/01060/ful (now expired). The barn appears to offer huge potential subject to consents to create ancillary accommodation to the main house.

Dinnington is situated equidistant from Ilminster and Crewkerne in an area of unspoilt Somerset countryside, surrounded by open farmland and woodland. The village has a small Parish Church and Public House (The Docks). In the nearby village of Hinton St George there is a primary school and village stores. Nearby towns are all within easy reach Ilminster 4 miles, Crewkerne 4 miles, Yeovil 12 miles, Taunton 16 miles.

The property is approached off a recently re-laid drive which sweeps around to the farmhouse between its paddocks and gardens. This opens up into a large parking area, with a copse adjoining set opposite the House. There is an attractive frontage with low level hedging and a gate through to the front of the house. To the West there is a further parking area set adjoining the end of the stone barn
The barn is split with a canopy area, wood store and cobbled flooring, kennels with fenced outside run. 2 large ground floor areas, with one open first floor area with a fantastic range of original timbers. The barn has been fully re-roofed by our current vendors in 2011. The barn appears to offer huge potential for conversion having once already had planning permission for additional space to the house.
The gardens are a huge feature of the property and have been fully planted and remodelled during our vendors 9 years. They have been beautifully designed with stocked colourful beds and a huge variety of interesting perennials. There is a delightful chippings area with lavender walk down through the top end of the garden. An attractive sheltered courtyard area sits between the kitchen and barn sections of the house. The garden is walled to two sides with natural stone and red brick walling, with a planted run of Lime trees bordering the drive.
Bordering the gardens to the East and North is a fantastic block of land currently split into a range of smaller stock proof sections suitable for sheep.
There is a further paddock set to the south of the drive and a drove borders the land to the East.
Agents Note—there is a footpath, although very rarely used, that enters the drive and splits either down the drove or following the drive across the front of the house and into the neighbours land, clearly signed on site.
The house gardens and land extend in all to 3.118 acres.
