About this property

  • Standerwick Farm is an attractive stone built detached home set in gardens and grounds of about 6.95 acres, offering in excess of 3,000 sq ft of accommodation arranged over three floors.

    The entrance porch opens up into a family sitting room, which is very much the heart of the home and features an impressive fireplace. Leading off from the sitting room is a cosy snug, complete with bespoke cabinetry and shelving.

    The traditional kitchen/dining room comprises a range of base, drawer and wall units complete with wooden work surfaces, an island unit and an Aga. There is a practical tiled floor, secondary staircase and ample space for a family dining table. Accessed from the kitchen is a practical utility/boot room, which leads on to a downstairs bathroom.

    Also off the kitchen is a most impressive orangery, which is bathed in natural light due to its lantern roof light, doors and windows. This more recent addition provides an ideal entertaining space, taking full advantage of the views to the rear across the gardens and paddocks.

    To the first floor are four bedrooms and a bathroom, all enjoying far-reaching views across the gardens and grounds. To the second floor is the principal bedroom complete with an en suite shower room.

    This fine period home offers versatile living over three floors, packed with features including exposed beams, fireplaces, wooden doors and some stone mullion windows. Its private setting and spacious grounds makes it an ideal family home, well positioned for Bath, Frome and some of the well-performing local independent schools.

    Standerwick Farmhouse enjoys extensive gardens and paddocks that amount to about 6.95 acres. The property is approached via a long driveway, which in the first part is shared but leads down and opens up to the home. The gardens are laid predominantly to lawn with a number of specimen trees and far-reaching views to the rear across the surrounding countryside.

    There is a spacious driveway and parking area to the front of the home, which in turn leads to a detached double garage with up and over doors. There is a private terrace to the side and rear with a private setting and open outlook. The gardens are pet-friendly and ideal for curious children to get amongst and explore.

This is a wonderful family home, with plenty of space for children to run around and explore. The period features blend beautifully with more modern additions such as the stunning orangery, which is a superb extension to the original accommodation.
