Description

Whitstone Hill Farm is a fine example of a detached period farmhouse offering in excess of 3,900 sq ft of spacious and versatile accommodation arranged over three floors. The principal rooms benefit from uninterrupted and unrivalled views of the surrounding Somerset countryside and there are period features on offer in the form of sash windows, exposed beams and fireplaces.

The ground floor has a welcoming entrance hall, sitting room with fireplace, dining room with wood burner, snug with direct access to outside courtyard rear garden and a kitchen breakfast room complete with Aga. There is an office, utility room and enclosed porch. On the first floor are four bedrooms, two en suite shower rooms and a family bathroom. Additionally, there is a family room with large picture windows and amazing views as well as stairs leading up to a games room with feature vaulted ceiling. On the second floor is a further bedroom as well as three further loft/store rooms (these offer further potential)

Outside there is access to a part completed annexe wing measuring approx 1,000 sq ft adjoining the house arranged over three floors. This is open plan and offers further potential to create further living space. This has retrospective planning with a proposed layout. As a farmhouse the property still retains a reasonable amount of land, which amounts to approximately 23 acres (more farmland may be available by separate negotiation). This is predominantly divided between a large field, paddocks, orchard of apples, plum and pear trees and gardens with an outdoor toilet.

The property is approached off a no-through country lane that forms into pathway status to the east of the rear yard gated entrance. The front drive access leads to a large parking area with access to a single garage. The gardens extend to the front of the house and comprise of lawns, flower beds, raised vegetable beds and a well stocked fruit cage. There is an enclosed large pond and a copse. The views to the front are simply breathtaking and enjoy a complete approx 40 mile panoramic view of the neighbouring Somerset countryside and spans from the Bristol channel and even South Glamorgan in the west with Cranborne Chase in the east.

To the side and back of the house are two large barns. The first is divided into three sections and ideal for storage or hobbies. The second is to the rear and is in need of rebuilding, but offers a large footprint and further possibilities (subject to permissions).
