A beautifully presented period farmhouse boasting a wealth of character features together with numerous renewable energy sources, garaging, stables and pastureland. In all about 2.15 acres.

This stunning property was once part of a larger working farm and has since been occupied as a private dwelling. The current owners have been in residence since 1991 and the property comes to the market following their decision to downsize. Constructed of colour wash stone elevations under a double pitched roof the accommodation is conveniently laid out over two floors and briefly comprises a storm porch, rear hall/utility with a number of fitted base units and separate wc. An opening leads through to a modern kitchen/breakfast room with a number of integral Neff appliances and a generous number of base and wall units. Off the kitchen is a conservatory with heat reflecting glass keeping it cool in the summer and enjoying views of the gardens. A study can be found to the side. A door from the kitchen gives access to a fabulous living room with open fireplace and exposed timber beams, adjacent is the main entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor and an opening leads through to a spacious dining room. Also on this floor is a wet room and studio. Upstairs are four double bedrooms with a master enjoying a dressing room and en suite together with a well equipped family bathroom.

Outside are beautifully manicured front and rear gardens, ample parking and a number of outbuildings to include a workshop, garage and stables. In addition to the gardens is a small paddock ideal for keeping a horse or other domestic livestock. To fully appreciate the true splendour and quality finish of this superb rural property a viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated amongst rural surrounding on the edge of the hamlet of Fordgate which lies some 5 miles south of the market town of Bridgwater. Local facilities include a church, Inn and village hall in the adjacent village of Moorland. The M5 motorway junction 24 is within 3 miles thus facilitating communications north of Bristol and south to the county town of Taunton. Local facilities are also available at the small town of North Petherton and Bridgwater, both within 2 miles. There are several noted public schools in Taunton along with a mainline rail link to London Paddington and international airports can be found at both Bristol and Exeter, both within one hours drive.

The property is approached off a country lane via an electric sliding gate which leads to a large gravelled parking and turning area adjacent to the house. Here there is access to a detached double garage (5.8m x 8.66m max) with up and over roller shutter door and power connected. Adjacent is a workshop (3m x 6.6m max) with window and patio doors to the front gardens. The gardens to the front are beautifully manicured with areas of lawn interspersed with a number of mature shrubs, trees and bushes together with a glass house and patio ideal for Al Fresco dining and summer entertaining.
