Manor Farm is a substantial farmhouse, with five bedrooms and flexible accommodation. The property was built in two parts, with the older section constructed in the early part of the 16th
century; whilst the newer part is Georgian, thought to be built in the 1810s or 20s. The property is set in a peaceful rural location just outside the small Somerset village of Theale, close to Wells and within easy reach of the Mendip Hills and the Somerset coast.
The accommodation could benefit from some modernisation and features attractive period detailing throughout including sash windows, exposed beams, original fireplaces, attractive
wood panelling and parquet flooring. The impressive 31ft sitting room has a double-height vaulted ceiling, with a spiral staircase leading to a mezzanine level, and a triple aspect with French
doors leading to the gardens. There is a welcoming drawing room with an open fireplace, a formal dining room and a study with an original stone inglenook fireplace. The kitchen/breakfast room has plenty of storage space and integrated
Upstairs there are five double bedrooms, three of which, including the master, have en suite shower rooms. There is also a family bathroom with a separate shower unit, while the ground floor has an additional shower room.
The Holiday Accomodation
Manor Farm has holiday accommodation in the form a converted barn that provides four double bedrooms, all of which are en suite, and an open-plan sitting area and kitchen. The holiday accommodation is well-presented, in a more contemporary style to the main farmhouse, and has been let very successfully, providing a substantial income (further details available from thevendor’s agent).
Adjacent to the holiday accommodation is a two storey barn that has planning permission to be converted into additional accommodation, providing further potential for income. Planning Ref. 50/14/00008.
