About This Property

A stunning Grade II Listed farmhouse recently renovated, together with a useful range of outbuildings, beautiful gardens and paddock. In all about 3.97 acres.

This attractive period farmhouse has been sympathetically renovated to a beautiful standard throughout and is well worthy of its Grade II Listed status. The property enjoys underfloor heating, additional insulation and photovoltaic cells on the roof making it more economical to run. The accommodation in brief comprises an entrance porch which in turn leads to an impressive entrance hall with exposed beams, inglenook fireplace and exposed timber floorboards. A door off leads to a garden room and home office and to the side is a W.C. and utility. A hallway connects a second study/snug, as well as a beautiful drawing room with ceiling rose, inglenook fireplace and window seat. A dining room adjoins with pantry off and the kitchen enjoys a modern range of fitted units with granite work surfaces, together with breakfast bar and a number of integral appliances, as well as an Aga. Three staircases lead to the first floor where there are four double bedrooms, two of which enjoy en-suites and 2 family bathrooms.

he property is situated in the hamlet of Chapel Leigh which is a quiet west Somerset hamlet. This part of Somerset is unknown to many with its gently rolling countryside and no major roads nearby; accordingly it is very much unspoilt and includes some of the most beautiful countryside in Somerset. The property is only 8 miles away from Taunton, the County Town of Somerset, which provides an excellent range of amenities and 3 noted public schools, namely King’s and Queen’s Colleges and Taunton School. The nearby village of Bishops Lydeard includes a range of shops, parish church, doctors surgery, library, post office, garage and primary school. The Quantock Hills which are designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, together with the Brendon Hills and Exmoor National Park are close by and provide miles of footpaths and bridleways. The cities of Exeter and Bristol are all within an hours drive both hosting international airports.

The property is approached off a quiet country lane over a gravelled driveway which leads to a car parking and turning area for several vehicles. Here there is a traditional range of outbuildings which has been converted to a studio, open fronted storage, hobbies room and carports. The outbuildings can suit any number of alternative uses such as a gym/workshop or other. The main gardens lie to the rear where there is a stunning courtyard garden with a number of well established flowerbeds, interspersed with paved walkways and pergola. Adjoining the end of the house is a covered outside dining and seating area, perfect for alfresco dining and summer entertaining. Also within the gardens is a vegetable patch, fruit cage, two greenhouses and area of lawn. The gardens could easily be grassed out to make them lower maintenance but to fully enjoy the splendour of this stunning country residence, a viewing is highly recommended.

Located on the other side of the lane is a paddock which is gently sloping and contained within natural hedgerow boundaries, perfect for equestrian, agricultural or other amenity uses. In total the property extends to 3.97 acres of which 3.5 acres is the paddock.
