Dating from the 1600s, and immaculately restored by the present owner, this handsome former farmhouse combines both historical beauty and comfort. Set behind wrought iron gates with fleur de lys finials, this property conveys a huge sense of pride in its massive Hamstone fireplaces (a honey coloured material for which the area is famous), its mullioned windows and wooden and flagstone floors.

Outside, there is a sizeable amount of land, comprising – among others – Yew topiary, a boxwood knot garden, flagstone terraces and a mixed orchard of 48 fruit trees. There is also a Coach House which is suitable for further accommodation, and excellent educational facilities in the area including Sherborne, Kings Taunton and Millfield.

On all the above, Jackson-Stops & Staff put a price tag of £995,000.
