A superb Grade II Listed farmhouse situated in a wonderful rural location with far reaching views, outbuildings and approximately 1.5 acres. The property has four reception rooms, a charming farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room and five bedrooms.

Situation

Park Farm is situated in a lovely position between the towns of Somerton, Langport and close to the popular village of Pitney with its award winning pub and well supported local village events. The surrounding countryside is delightfully unspoilt with much used footpaths and bridleways. The historic market towns of Langport, Street, Glastonbury, Taunton and Wells offer a wide range of amenities, including many local country pubs. The M5 motorway and A303 provide excellent road links and the railway stations at nearby Castle Cary and Taunton supply fast train services to London Paddington. There is a wide choice of independent and state schools, including Millfield and the local Huish Episcopi Sixth Form Academy, which has rapidly achieved an outstanding reputation.

Description

Park Farm lies in an idyllic rural location well off the beaten track between the small historic towns of Somerton and Langport. The house is approached from a quiet country lane with a long driveway leading to the house, which stands in an elevated position with uninterrupted views over the surrounding countryside. The Grade ll listed house has a most attractive facade with blue lias stone elevations under a pitched tiled roof. It retains much of its original character and charm with many period features including original flagstone floors, beamed ceilings, inglenooks, and exposed pine, elm and oak timber work. More contemporary improvements include oil fired central heating, a 4 door electric Aga complemented with a conventional cooker, four wood burning stoves and professionally fitted bathrooms and kitchen.

Accommodation

The accommodation includes a cross passage hallway with an attractive staircase leading to the first floor. The drawing room has a stone fireplace now fitted with a log burner and is equally suited as a morning room, being dual aspect with easterly views. Both the dining room and the sitting room have exposed beams, blue lias flagstones and inglenook fireplaces both recently fitted with log burners. The sitting room has doors onto the kitchen and is connected by a door through to the kitchen and playroom/TV room/snug, from which glazed double doors lead out into the garden. The study too has an inglenook fireplace adapted for a log burner and has been lightly partitioned to provide a walk-in store; the study is currently used as an additional bedroom. The kitchen/breakfast room is a superb Neptune kitchen with an extensive range of free-standing cabinets, a four door Aga (electric powered), a conventional modern cooker and a delightful breakfast area overlooking the garden and woods beyond. Leading off from the kitchen is a generous boot/utility room incorporating a downstairs WC.

The first floor comprises four double bedrooms, two ensuite bathrooms and a family shower room. Two of the bedrooms are served by the family shower room, whilst the guest bedroom is en-suite. The master bedroom is a very spacious room linked to a large, heavily beamed vaulted en-suite bathroom with a claw-foot Victorian style bath and a walk in glass shower area; beyond lies a generous dressing room with a comprehensive range of bespoke fitted wardrobes, shelving and cupboards.

From the landing, there is access to an enormous fully boarded storage area, extending the length of the house. From the first floor landing, an oak staircase leads through a door to the second floor and the fifth bedroom. This is vaulted with ancient beams and is flanked by two large fully boarded attic rooms with potential for further accommodation, subject to planning.

Outside

The sweeping tree lined drive leads over a cattle grid, to a large parking area and the house. The property is surrounded by mature gardens and lawns of approximately 1 acre with an adjoining paddock of 0.5 acres with a small pony shelter and bounded by post and rail fencing. The croquet lawn is almost full size and a generous kitchen garden lies behind a delightful single story stone and tiled barn, currently used as a studio/party room with a separate shower and WC with views to the south and west. The well sheltered paved terrace on the south side of the house is tucked away, just outside the kitchen and has lovely views of the paddock and woodland too.

All the outbuildings are fitted with power and light and comprise two stone barns, currently used as potting sheds, workshop and store. There is a garden WC and large double garage which has potential for conversion to an annexe, subject to planning permission.

Services

Private Water & Drainage. Oil Fired Central Heating.
