An attractive period farmhouse, together with two substantial period barns with alternative use potential (STP) all set within grounds of just over an acre at the end of a no through road. No onward chain.

This unusual offering comprises a period stone built farmhouse which is not listed, along with two substantial barns which could suit a number of alternative uses, such as an annexe, holiday let, workshop, gym, games room or other, subject to the necessary planning consents. The property is set at the end of a no through road which is shared with just two other properties enjoying a great deal of privacy and seclusion.

The house itself boasts a wealth of character as you would expect from a property dating back to the 17th Century. The accommodation includes a dining hall with stairs to the first floor and inglenook fireplace, a door leads through to a generous living room, again with inglenook and a study adjoins to the rear with sliding door to outside and a second staircase to the first floor. The kitchen is adjacent to the dining hall which has an oil fired Aga and feature bread oven. The old dairy is now a utility and W.C. which completes the ground floor. Upstairs is a generous master bedroom with the space to create an en-suite. Bedroom two is currently a walkthrough but space allows creation of a separate passageway. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Quarts Farm occupies an enviable location at the end of a no through road within the small hamlet of Briscoe which lies on the lower slopes of the Blackdown Hills, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Wellington is within 2.5 miles of the property where an excellent selection of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities can be found together with easy access to the M5 motorway. The County Town of Taunton is within 9 miles where an even greater selection of facilities can be found, together with a mainline rail link to London (Paddington), Bristol, Birmingham, Plymouth and Edinburgh.

The property is approached over an un-adopted road shared with just 3 other users and leads to a concrete yard providing ample parking and access to the barns. A stone wall separates a courtyard with central flowerbed and a set of steps lead up to a raised garden with well-established borders and ornamental pond. Further uphill is a large kitchen garden with greenhouse, an expanse of lawn, a fruit orchard and stream valley.


In addition to the house are two, two storey barns. The larger of the two (17m x 4.6m) is of red brick, Blackdown flint and cob elevations under a pitched tiled roof and could suit numerous alterative uses, subject to planning. The second barn is slightly smaller (11.6m x 3.6) and is of attractive Blackdown flint with pretty arch openings, again with alternative use potential. This barn has a rear lean-to ground floor extension (3.0m) wide over full length with a garage door at the lane end.
