A superbly situated and beautiful 5 bedroom detached farmhouse with huge scope for further improvements and very close to the popular Millfield School. In brief the property comprises an entrance hall, dining area, kitchen, garden room, WC, sitting room and further reception room to the ground floor whilst to the first floor are 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The internal layout of the property is ripe for re-design and the exciting aspect of this, is that the home lends itself to it perfectly. The well-proportioned rooms work well for family living and the whole property offers a light and airy aspect, particularly the far-reaching views over the local Somerset countryside which are spectacular. There are a wealth of period features adding to the character, including inglenook fireplaces, flagstone flooring and stone-mullioned windows to name but a few and this farm-house will be of huge interest for those wanting to put their own stamp and design on a property in a location that is one of the most sought-after in the area. It should be noted the vendors are extremely sad to have to sell the property but a change in circumstance is the only reason for the sale.
