THE PROPERTY

Whatley Farm is a traditional Somerset farmhouse set in an idyllic rural position close to the popular village of Winsham. The farmhouse has been in the same ownership for 50 years and therefore is in need of renovation. The property is currently arranged as a house with an integral annex but would make a fantastic four/five bedroom, three bathroom, three reception room home.

 

The property enjoys many character features including an inglenook fireplace with large log burner, flagstone floors, a family kitchen with Aga and bread oven, conveniently positioned to lead out onto the garden. The first floor bedrooms still retain their attractive fireplaces.

 

In addition to the main house there is Bamboo Cottage which is an attached converted barn with sitting room, kitchen, utility room and mezzanine bedroom.

 

The property sits in a large plot with formal south facing gardens and an orchard to the rear and boasts a double garage with ample parking.

 

OUTSIDE

The property is approached from the rear via a sweeping driveway which leads into a parking turning area with space for a number of vehicles. The detached double garage with light and power connected and from here a picket fence and gate lead to the adjacent farmhouse. A pedestrian gate from the parking area leads to the front of the farm house where there is a mature cottage garden which is south facing and enjoys some delightful views. Pathway leads from the garden to the front door of the farmhouse. Natural well situated by the kitchen door.

 

To the rear of the farmhouse and Bamboo Cottage is a mature orchard finished with a high hedge.
