    About this property

    • Fairhaven was originally built in the 1930's but has been updated and renovated by the current owners and now offers predominantly lateral accommodation perfect for modern family living. From the spacious entrance hall is the light and airy sitting room complete with inset wood burner leading through to the conservatory, both benefit from access to the spacious terrace where you can relax and enjoy the picturesque country setting. The well designed kitchen/dining room provides all you need for family catering and entertaining. There is a study/bedroom 4 as well as a practical utility room. The home enjoys three bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room and a separate shower room for the others. From the kitchen a spiral staircase provides access to the principal bedroom with en suite bathroom and fabulous views across the open countryside.

      Gardens and Grounds

      Fairhaven is situated on the edge of Frome surrounded by open countryside. Approached through double electric gates onto a spacious private driveway there is access to a quality car barn (34'4”x 26'4”). This enjoys twin roller doors as well as a pedestrian door and is set up to house and operate a private car collection. The low maintenance front and rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn. A wooden clad lodge could provide an office, gym or treatment room as it has electricity and water. There are two stables, with a tack room and store room attached. A garden store and log store complete the outbuildings. The rear garden is private and enclosed where there is access to the paddock as well as the raised deck area. The spacious deck leads off the home and is enclosed by glass balustrade. The decking also enjoys a sunken hot tub and is ideal for entertaining as well as enjoying the idyllic country views. The two paddocks wrap around the gardens to the side and rear and are enclosed by quality post and rail fencing. These offer ideal pony paddocks as well as afford a level of protection of the view.
