A beautiful 17th century Grade II listed former farmhouse which is situated in a gentle valley with stream frontage, an attached cottage, separate holiday let, range of outbuildings and 7.99 acres.
Lye Hole is a pretty hamlet hidden away along a quiet lane, about two miles east of Wrington village. Lye Hole Farm was purchased by the present owners in 1987 when the farmhouse and buildings were in a semi-derelict state of repair but only ceased to be a working farm in 2010. The house dates from the 17th century, with later additions. Over the years the property has been completely restored carefully retaining all features appropriate to the period.There are beam and cross beamed ceilings, flagstone floors, tongue and groove doors with iron latch furniture, original fireplaces, oak floors, and an oak staircase. More recently a bespoke kitchen by Tom Howley was fitted and a superb oak framed conservatory, opening to the west, was added to the kitchen. The interior has a warm and friendly atmosphere where the charm of the old house blends gently with contemporary living.The front door opens to a central entrance hall, with flagstone floor, with the drawing room and sitting room on either side. The drawing room is an attractive room with, cross beam ceiling, window seat and large open fireplace. Two timber steps lead up to the dining room with oak floor boards, beamed ceiling and a walk-in cellar off. The sitting room has a log burning stove fitted in an original fireplace and window seat.The superb bespoke breakfast kitchen was fitted in 2016 and includes an island with units and a breakfast bar. Integral appliances include a hob, oven, dishwasher, fridge and an oil Aga. The kitchen opens into an excellent oak framed conservatory with stone floor and two pairs of French windows, opening in to the west facing garden, under a glazed atrium. There is also a utility room and shower/cloakroom leading from the conservatory. A second entrance to the house is through the large former dairy or boot room with flagstone floor.The first floor is approached up a concealed turning staircase from the drawing room to a landing. The generous principal bedroom suite in the north-west wing, has a short flight of stairs leading down to the study. There are two bedrooms at the front of the house looking toward the stream with lovely views, two bedrooms at the rear of the house and a family bathroom all with views looking over the rear grounds and open countryside. On the second floor, there is a further bedroom and shower room each accessed by separate staircases.Lye Hole Farm is approached over a small bridge and stream on the northern boundary. The drive continues past the house to the east and leads to a lower and upper parking area behind the house. Adjoining the house is a single garage/barn.The Barn is accessed off the lower yard and is currently let as a holiday let. It has a lovely and light open plan living room, stone floor and vaulted ceiling with roof trusses. There is a log burning stove, kitchen area with integrated appliances, bathroom and a staircase leads to a gallery bedroom.Adjoining The Barn are three store rooms and boiler room. On the opposite side is a five bay open barn/carport with log store under a pantile roof. One bay is fitted with an electric charger. From this parking area central steps in a Parterre garden lead up to mixed apple orchard/paddock.The Long Room, converted from a barn, is accessed from the upper yard and has planning consent for use as a holiday let. Alternatively, it makes an ideal party room, potential cinema, or gym. As with The Barn, The Long Room has been finished to a high standard throughout. The open plan living room/bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with four roof trusses, three French doors opening to the south, log burning stove and a stone floor with under floor heating and shower room.
