Chantry Farm is a five bedroom, three bathroom unlisted period property on a plot of about 0.6 acres that has been extended, with an additional three bedroom annexe known as Little Elm Cottage, parking and gardens in Chantry, 4.8 miles from Frome, and 2.0 miles from Mells.
“The house was originally built in 1870’s,” say the vendors, “and we added two bedrooms, a dining room, office and utility room in 2009 as well as converted the garage into a three bedroom annex. Downstairs the sitting room is south facing and has a wood burning stove. The dining room has an oak floor and double doors lead out to the conservatory and south facing garden. The kitchen is at the front of the house and utility room to the left. The office also has oak flooring, and there is a downstairs cloakroom.”
“Upstairs in the old part of the house are three bedrooms and a bathroom. We added two further bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and the other with views down the garden and an en-suite bathroom.”
“The annexe is a three bedroom cottage which has parking for three vehicles and a small, but very pretty garden. Our garden is mainly laid to lawn with a blue fir, weeping willow, acer, flowering cherry and conifer. There are three sheds in the garden, one for keeping the lawnmower in and two for storing wood. In addition, there is parking for two/three cars.”
Chantry is a small and very peaceful village. Nearby Mells, 2.0 miles away, has a post office and shop as well as a Café opened by Mary Berry, and the gastro pub, the Talbot.
