The property is situated close to the Somerset/Devon border in a particularly attractive part of the Blackdown Hills, which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Hemyock, which is about a mile to the north, offers a range of shops and services including school, medical centre, church, post office and traditional pub. The market town of Wellington is also within easy reach, as is the county town of Taunton, both of which offer a wide range of shopping, social and scholastic facilities.
The Farmhouse -
Constructed in 1909 of attractive local stone elevations under a Welsh slate roof, the farmhouse offers accommodation comprising front door leading to the ENTRANCE HALL with original Edwardian tiled floor and feature staircase to the first floor. This in turn provides access to the SITTING ROOM and DINING ROOM, both of which have attractive open fireplaces and a bay window to the east, with the Dining Room having a twin aspect. Adjoining the rear garden is the KITCHEN and BREAKFAST ROOM which has the benefit of a Staffordshire brick floor and a range of fitted units. Adjoining the Kitchen is the rear ENTRANCE LOBBY with WC and storage cupboard off. On the first floor there are THREE BEDROOMS, two of which are double and have the benefit of original open fireplaces (with one having a dual aspect); and one of which is a good sized single bedroom, together with a FAMILY BATHROOM with WC, wash hand basin and bath. The farmhouse has the benefit of central heating throughout.
The Old Piggery -
Positioned to the rear of the farmhouse and constructed of local stone under a slate roof, the Old Piggery has been converted to provide ancillary accommodation to the farmhouse. Comprising three interconnecting rooms with central heating and tiled floors throughout, the light and airy accommodation comprises a UTILITY/POTENTIAL KITCHEN area leading through to an OPEN PLAN LIVING/DINING ROOM with a further BEDROOM at the southern end. Having originally been designed as a veterinary surgery, the Old Piggery would be equally well suited to provide an office suite.
Gardens and Paddocks -
Outside, the farmhouse benefits from attractive and spacious lawned and landscaped gardens which surround it together with a most attractive walled outdoor eating area and ample parking (which includes separate parking for the Old Piggery).
Additional workshop and storage space is provided by the Nissen hut which is positioned to the south of the farmhouse, whilst to the north there is a shelter for storing logs. Together with the adjoining hay meadows, the gardens provide a haven for a wide range of wildlife.
In addition to the spacious gardens, adjoining the farmhouse is a paddock and further hay meadow, of 0.36 of an acre and 1.94 acres respectively; both would be ideal to service a range of equestrian or livestock uses.
