It has a most attractive Georgian façade adorned by mature Wisteria.Langford Place is listed Grade II and dates from 1826. It is the principal and entire southernelevation of the property.

The accommodation is of classical Georgian proportions and the rooms flow well and are arranged around a central reception hall and central landing. The drawing is a particularly elegant room with working period fireplace and bay window looking out to the garden, and giving access to the pond garden.The present owners purchased the property in 2012 and have since carried out a number of improvements including redecoration, refurbishing all windows, installing a bespoke kitchen by Neptune which includes a built in five ring range cooker and two drawer dishwasher as well as refitting the bathrooms and shower room to an excellent specification.The bedrooms on the first floor all have a lovely outlook. Three look across to the MendipHills and the fourth looks towards the centre of the village.The cellar is of excellent ceiling height. The attic floor is converted into a study and interconnects with a boarded room ideal for use as a playroom, cinema or bedroom 5.OutbuildingA pretty outbuilding comprises a single garage and an excellent studio or home office on the first floor, with parking in front.OutsideThe initial approach to Langford Place is over a tree lined drive, shared with another property, and branches off onto its own gravel drive passing the front of the house to a generous parking area leading to the garage/studio block.The gardens are a delight, enclosed, private and well established. They have been planned for colour and interest. Mature trees include Yew, Oak, Cherry and Acacia. A large expanse of level lawn lies in front of the house with deep shaped herbaceous and lavender borders. With the use of ornamental tall and low box hedging “compartments” have been created.A mature dense Beech hedge conceals a compost area with timber implement and log stores and a green house. To the east, outside the drawing room, is a pretty “secret” and mainly walled enclosedgarden with square pond with water feature, and stone surround. There are flagstones, gravel areas and borders planted with a variety of shrubs and climbing plants.
