Description

A handsome and extensive Grade II listed village house.

A handsome and extensive Grade II listed village house requiring improvement, with approx. 0.5 acre of orchard with barn/garage.

Property
Dating from the early seventeenth century, Manor Farm House is an intriguing, historic property of impressive dimensions. The house has been let out for many years and is now in need of general updating and improvement, but, together with the orchard and outbuilding it provides plenty of scope for a good village home with tremendous character.

Comprising stone elevations under a slate roof, the accommodation is set over three floors and all the rooms are generously proportioned, with good ceiling heights. The drawing room has an impressive open stone fireplace and a heavily beamed ceiling, while the kitchen and dining room are set adjacent to one another, creating potential for an excellent family space. To the rear is a nineteenth century addition, forming a long gallery and cloakroom which front a small yard at the back.

On the first floor, a split-level landing leads to two large bedrooms at the front, a bathroom and a room over the porch. The rear section has another double bedroom and bathroom, while on the second floor there are two large loft bedrooms, a bathroom and generous attic storage.

Period detail abounds; much of the ground floor is set with flagstones and the hall wall is timbered, while the majority of the windows are mullioned and there are exposed beams in all the rooms.

Outside
The garden faces west and is to the front of the property, with a lawn flanking a central path to the porch and mature trees and shrubs to the edge. At the rear of the house, a yard provides access to the gallery and kitchen beyond. The property will own a section of drive with a deep planted bed where there is scope to create parking spaces, and over which the neighbouring property enjoys a right of way. On the other side of the drive and beyond a high laurel hedge there is a pleasant apple orchard, at the northern end of which sits a spacious traditional building which can be utilised as a garage or for storage.

Situation
Manor Farm House is located in a tucked away position in the attractive village of Misterton, surrounded by period stone properties and beautiful countryside. Situated well off the through-road, it forms part of a private group of three properties, served by a well-maintained drive. The village has a thriving community, with a village primary school, church, two inns and a popular tennis club. Close by is also the mainline station (London Waterloo), making this a most convenient place to live.

The bustling south Somerset market town of Crewkerne is only two miles away and offers a range of shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants and supermarkets, with a gym and swimming pool facilities also in the town centre and primary, middle and secondary schools. The A303 is within easy striking distance just to the north, providing communications both to London and the south west, as well as the A37 heading north. Yeovil provides a more comprehensive centre for leisure and shopping, while Sherborne offers a further cultural experience. There are a number of private schools in the area, both Preparatory and Senior, including Sherborne boys and girls, Sherborne Prep, North Perrott and Hazlegrove.

Set amidst attractive undulating countryside close to the Dorset border, Misterton is an excellent base from which to explore the many miles of local footpaths and bridleways and there are a variety of rural pursuits available including walking, riding and cycling. The Jurassic coast is not far away, offering natural observations and watersports of varying descriptions, while nearby villages and market towns provide further shopping and dining establishments. This really is a lovely part of the world in which to live.
