Description
KEY FEATURES: Picturesque period family farmhouse 5300 sq. ft. of accommodation 2 bed self contained annex 9 acres of land, additional land available by separate negotiation Numerous stone outbuildings 2 bed cottage available by separate negotiation Stunning views No Chain Dating from the 19c, Manor Farm is a picturesque family farmhouse discreetly situated in Alhampton in the heart of the Somerset countryside. Built of blue lias stone, this pretty family home features a 2-bed self-contained flat, a comprehensive range of stables, barns, and outbuildings, and 9 acres of prime agricultural land. It is ideally suited as an equestrian centre complete with a manege but also offers the opportunity for a wide variety of country pursuits. Further land is available by separate negotiation. A generous driveway is accessed via gates from a no through road and offers ample parking for several cars along with a double garage. A formal front door opens beneath a pretty porchway that lies on the East side of the house, but in day-to-day use, doors open directly to a fabulous open plan living space that incorporates a fitted kitchen and lies at the heart of the house. Natural light pours through an array of skylights whilst beautiful oak beams and a magnificent stone fireplace lend the room real character. Off the living / dining area is a study and access to a rear hall. The kitchen itself is furnished with bespoke units and recessed lighting that illuminates fine granite worktops. Off the kitchen is a spacious, walk in pantry. An inner hall runs the length of the house and opens to four receptions rooms and a ground floor bedroom with a cloak room. Each room is elegantly furnished; the dining room has fully glazed doors that open to the garden, aged oak beams grace the ceilings of the sitting room and the snug, and the fourth reception room is warmed by a glorious open fire. Stairs from the hall run to a first-floor landing, five double bedrooms (one with an en-suite bathroom) and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom enjoys scenic views of the gardens whilst the others look out towards an impressive array of traditional barns and outbuildings. Both bathrooms are well equipped with traditional sanitary ware and fixtures and fittings. Adjacent to the main house and accessible from the rear hall is a generous boot room, the estate office and a tack room and store. Manor Farm has been a well loved family home for many years and would gain from some modernising/updating in areas. The Annex A flight of stairs leads from the boot room to the first-floor annex that encompasses two bedrooms, a sitting room, and a kitchen/ living room with a bathroom. It is self-contained and can be accessed independently of the main house via the boot room. Outside This beautiful house is situated entirely within its own land and the pretty gardens to the East extend to approximately ¼ of an acre. A delightful, seasoned stone terrace adjacent to the house gives way to well-manicured lawns that sweep away to the near boundary. The gardens are totally enclosed and offer a haven of peace and tranquillity. The landscape is enriched by a variety of mature trees, and a pair of sculptured yew bushes frame the entrance to a delightful stone outhouse. The yard to the West is overlooked by a multitude of roses that light up the façade of the house. Further afield lies a second yard and a wide variety of stables and outbuildings along with a manege. Whilst these facilities are ideal for a wide range of equestrian activities, there is significant scope for redevelopment given the relevant planning permission.
