A delightful manor farmhouse with extensive outbuildings and spectacular views, all set within a highly sought after village close to Bath.
Manor House Farm is a delightful Grade II Listed farmhouse with extensive outbuildings and spectacular views all set within a highly sought after village. Formerly a cider farm, the property provides wonderfully versatile accommodation comprising a six bedroom farmhouse, stables, hayloft, cider barn and stores set within about 6.7 acres.
Approached from the village road, immediately noticeable is the original farmyard with parking for numerous cars. To the front of the house are magnificent stone gate piers and an attractive dwarf wall surrounding the farmyard, which have been Grade II Listed for their architectural importance. The house itself is entered via a welcoming central porch way with the drawing room and dining room flanking either side, both with excellent proportions, stone mullion windows and large inglenook fireplaces. At the end of the hallway is the main staircase and a study to the left hand side with pretty views of the garden. Situated at the rear of the house is a quintessential farmhouse kitchen, complete with flagstone floors, beautiful wooden cabinetry and central oil-fired aga. The kitchen is the centrepiece of the house, with wonderful charm and original features, and from here are a further array of useful rooms, including a large utility room with adjacent WC, a playroom and a further reception/tv room.
Upstairs are five bedrooms and two bathrooms, arranged over two floors. Four of the bedrooms are a significant size, with a further nursery/study located in the centre at the front of the house. The principal bedroom is positioned to the front of the house with a feature fireplace and lovely village views.
The garden and grounds are what sets this property apart. The plot extends to approximately 6.7 acres with a wonderful variety to what is on offer. To the west of the house is a well manicured lawn with beautiful stocked formal borders and a lavender walk which leads to the orchard on the lower field and a sunny stone terrace from which to take in the spectacular far-reaching views. The versatility and range of buildings on the property is highly impressive, with the outbuildings a tantalising proposition for conversion in to auxiliary accommodation, garages or stables, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
