This substantial farmhouse occupies a secluded semi-rural position on a plot of three acres, just one and a half miles away from Chard.

In addition to the main four-bedroom house, there are mature gardens and grounds, a two-bedroom annexe and two further cottages which currently produce an excellent income stream.

The main farmhouse dates back to mid-Victorian times, and in more recent years it has been the subject of a comprehensive refurbishment with pleasing results.

Inside, there are two principal reception rooms and a well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room that opens into a bespoke conservatory with views across the surrounding countryside. On the first floor, there are four double bedrooms, all with ensuite facilities.

The annexe has an open-plan kitchen/living room, and two double bedrooms both with wet rooms and is connected to the main house but is self-contained with independent access. This accommodation is ideally suited as a holiday let or for occupation by a dependent relative.

The two-bedroom cottage, named the Cowshed, is a recently converted single-storey property presented to a high standard. Inside, the kitchen/living room is light and airy, and both the bedrooms are doubles with smart ensuite shower rooms. The second cottage has three bedrooms and is named the Apple Press. It, too, is beautifully presented with a stunning open-plan living room with a vaulted ceiling, French doors to the terrace, a fitted kitchen, three double bedrooms, one with ensuite facilities and a family bathroom.

Outside, the gardens and grounds are mainly east and south-facing with large lawns, mature shrubs and trees, well-stocked herbaceous borders and a mass of spring bulbs. The well-fenced paddock extends to just over two acres providing an excellent ecosystem for a variety of wildlife and birds.

There is a wide gravelled courtyard which provides ample parking space for several vehicles and gives access to a useful games room and workshop.
