THE AGENTS SAYS...
A characterful and spacious family home with great potential and a range of opportunities for the next buyer. Generously proportioned rooms offer plenty of space for entertaining but retain a welcoming and cosy feel for quieter times. The huge rear garden is wonderfully private, with towering poplars and other mature trees blurring the boundary with the surrounding landscape. The one bedroom annexe is a great size and offers accommodation for extended family or an excellent holiday let subject to necessary consents. The barn in the garden offers the same potential if converted, or perhaps this could be an offce or workshop space. Finally, if motors are your passion then look no further as there is not one but two double garages (!) and plentiful off-road parking.
Protected by a stone and tile porch, the front door opens into the expansive open plan dining room/entrance hall. To the left is the adjoining sitting room, which has window seats to enjoy the triple aspect and a handsome inglenook fireplace with gas/wood burning stove. Glazed double doors from the dining room open to the kitchen, which also interconnects with the dining room via the conservatory. The kitchen is a fantastic size with plentiful storage, worktop space, huge range cooker and room for an informal dining table next to the window seat. Off the kitchen is a large utility room and separate WC. Beyond the utility is the internal access to the annexe.
On the first floor, there are four double bedrooms, the family bathroom and a built-in storage cupboard on the landing. The double aspect principal bedroom, with ensuite shower room and built-in wardrobe, overlooks the front and rear of the property. Bedroom 2 is a wonderfully large and light room with plentiful built-in storage and a sink. Bedroom 3 is a good-sized double and also benefits from a wall of storage space. Bedroom 4 is a smaller double room. The spacious family bathroom has a luxurious freestanding roll top bath and separate shower.
The self-contained one bedroom annexe has external access from the patio and also an internal door from the utility room, both of which lead into the generous kitchen/dining room. Behind this is the bright and characterful, double aspect sitting room with views out over the garden. Stairs rise from the kitchen/dining room up to a wonderfully light double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a generous separate dressing room (this could accommodate 1-2 single beds if required for additional accommodation).
GARDEN AND GROUNDS
At the front of the property is a large gravel parking area and two double garages, with four up and over doors, windows at the rear and double doors out to the garden. A stone wall separates the driveway from the garden and a wide paved path leads through to the rear. Behind the house is a very large patio area which has access from the conservatory and the annexe. At the side of the patio is a spacious stone barn which has great potential for conversion to suit a range of purposes e.g. guest accommodation, workshop, office etc. Beyond the patio, the wonderful lawned garden extends to 1.17 acres. To the left (looking from the patio) statuesque poplar trees flank a large flower border and a rose covered pergola. The garden leads down to the River Cam, this is reached by way of a wooden footbridge across a cutting and onto 'the island which forms part of Middle Farmhouse.
Middle Farmhouse sits in the centre of the quiet Somerset village of West Camel, which has a public house, church & village hall, with the hall being the centre for many village activities. Further local amenities, including a post of?ce/shop, primary school and excellent health centre, can be found in the village of Queen Camel just 1 mile away. West Camel sits to the north of the historic Abbey Town of Sherborne and the regional centre of Yeovil, and is equidistant from both. These towns provide a comprehensive range of shops, leisure and business amenities, as well as mainline railway stations with regular services to London Waterloo and Paddington, Bristol and the south coast. The A303 can be joined directly from the village approx half a mile from the property giving access to London, the South West and the motorway network. Excellent schooling within the area can be found at Millfield, Hazelgrove, Sherborne and Bruton.
Entering West Camel from the A303, proceed into the centre of the village and just after The Walnut Tree pub turn right into Fore Street. Middle Farmhouse will be found on the left hand side after about 200 yds.
