About This Property

A substantial detached Georgian Listed farmhouse together with a separate detached farm cottage. Ideal multi generational arrangement or excellent income generation. In all approx. 7 acres.

A rare and excellent opportunity to purchase a Grade II listed Georgian farmhouse that has an adjacent field extending to approximately 6.16 acres together with a separate detached three bedroom cottage that forms part of the original farmstead and is ideal for either ancillary accommodation or short/long term letting purposes.

Hainbury Farm has been the subject of a farm tenancy for several generations; the current tenancy ceases in March 2023.

Hainbury Farm provides an excellent opportunity for a purchaser to stamp their own identity on this highly appealing property with a programme of improvements envisaged.

Both floorplans within the brochure show the extent of the internal accommodation for each dwelling and there are further photographs available online.

The farm house is a classic Georgian dwelling with a most appealing double-fronted façade, high ceiling heights throughout, a beautiful arched cellar and also a substantial attic that has ample scope for conversion into further accommodation (subject to necessary planning consents).

Directly to the rear of the house and adjoined by a glazed porch is a rectangular outbuilding which offers excellent conversion opportunities, perhaps into a home office or ancillary accommodation/games room/hobbies area (again, subject to both planning permission and Listed Building consent).

Hainbury Cottage, accessed from the same driveway, comprises a modest detached house believed to have been built in the 1960’s and which has been sub-let on a long term basis with the current residential tenancy due to end in the Spring.

The property is offered in good decoration order throughout and has had recent improvements, including the installation of new double-glazed windows throughout.

The property has its own enclosed walled garden which has been pleasantly landscaped and provides a real sun trap. The garden has a combination of lawn and patio, and features mature planting.

The parking arrangement for the cottage is such that there is space for two vehicles immediately beside the front boundary.

Hainbury Farm is to be found on the north eastern edge of Ilchester, itself a well served local village that benefits from excellent communication links via the A303. The village of Ilchester offers a local range of services to include a convenience store/petrol station, hotel, public houses, Italian restaurant amongst others. The larger commercial town of Yeovil is approximately a 10 minute drive to the south, whilst the historic abbey town of Sherborne is also a short drive away. There are excellent schools in the area, both state and private with numerous village primary schools within striking distance. In the private sector the well-regarded prep school, Hazlegrove, is a few minutes drive along the A303. Sherborne has prep and senior schools for both boys and girls together with Leweston just south of the town.

Hainbury Farmhouse and Cottage are approached from the village road via a shared driveway with the cottage being the first port of call. Beyond this dwelling a five bar gate opens to the farmhouse where there is a circular drive with a central lawned area.

The main garden is to be found on the western side of the house. It is mostly laid to lawn with numerous specimen trees, a host of mature beds which are well stocked and the whole is enclosed within high walling. Beside the garden is a driveway leading to a double width carport.

From the main house’s garden a Gothic style timber door opens to the rear giving direct access into the field. Measuring approximately 6.16 acres, the field benefits from a gate access off the driveway and is considering suitable for keeping livestock or indeed for equestrian purposes. There may be the possibility, subject to necessary consents, to create a new vehicular access into the field via the Fosse Way.
