The first floor comprises of four double bedrooms (one en suite) and a family bathroom. There is a large floored attic with light and electric sockets. The home is quite simply magnificent. It is the perfect blend of character and style and has been lovingly maintained by the current owners over the years. Its attractive exterior is met with a welcoming light and spacious interior, providing a wonderful and flexible home, especially for families. There are an abundance of attractive features, including exposed beams, flagstone flooring, open fireplaces and beautiful original doors to name but a few! Downstairs works tremendously well for modern day living with three reception rooms alongside the kitchen/breakfast room and a useful study area for those that need to work from home. All the bedrooms are of good proportions and with grounds surrounding the property to all sides, there are lovely views at every turn. The perfect family home for those wanting character and comfort.

The Wagon Barn

The Wagon Barn has full unfettered residential planning permission including the development of a second ground floor bedroom/reception room. The property benefits from underfloor heating provided by ground source system. In brief, the property comprises of a vaulted sitting room, kitchen, large double bedroom ensuite bathroom/wet room, porch and store/boiler room to the ground floor. With a first floor double bedroom and ensuite wc. Completed in 2019, this wooden-clad modern dwelling, is the perfect compliment to the farm house. It has been designed to take in the outstanding views of the grounds and countryside beyond. For those wanting additional income through a holiday let/rental or simply an ancillary accommodation, one would be hard pushed to find somewhere better.

The Barns

The stone built single storey barn (ref. outbuilding 1) adjacent to the house, has full unfettered planning permission for the development of a one or two bedroom annex to the house. The remaining barn (ref. outbuilding 2), has unfettered residential planning for the development of a standalone two storey three bedroom house.

* It should also be noted that The Farmhouse, Wagon Barn and The Barns could also be sold off separately should one wish.

Southwood is a small hamlet just a short drive from Castle Cary which benefits from excellent road and rail communications with Bristol, Bath and Wells to the north and the A303 to the south. The town also benefits from a main line train station with direct service to London Paddington. The town itself contains many attractive period buildings and good selection of shops and boutiques. Southwood Farm is a 10 minute drive to Bruton, having access to both state and private schooling.

The grounds extend to over 2 acres and surround both properties and barns to all sides. The outside space has a large front garden laid to lawn, flowerbeds trees and shrubs. Large south facing courtyard at the back of the house, with ample room for entertaining on a large scale. To the side of the front garden there is an orchard with cooking apple, dessert apple, pear, damson and plum trees. At the rear of the property to the North, there is a copse and a vegetable growing area with a green house. One of the most exciting parts to Southwood Farm is the land it occupies. Generous in its size and flexible in its use, it has outstanding and uninterrupted views over the beautiful Somerset countryside. It is a stunning venue to entertain friends and family throughout the seasons and has even laid host to a wedding. Must be viewed to fully appreciate.
