About the Property
Stoney Bridge Farm is a delightful country property dating back to the late 18th century and located within in a rural setting and close to the quintessential English village of Wedmore. Sitting comfortably within its mature gardens and land, the property enjoys wonderful views across countryside to the Mendip Hills. This former farmhouse has good living space, a detached and converted stone barn, outbuildings, gardens and land.
Although presented in good order, the property would benefit from some modernisation and updating, with further potential from the outbuildings, subject to the necessary permissions and consents.
The property sits in approximately three acres of land with two paddocks to the front of the house, whilst the mature gardens wrap around the house and outbuildings.
About the Inside
Like many country properties, the most used doorway is into the kitchen, here there are fitted units with plenty of space for a breakfast table. The inner hall has a staircase and doors off to the dining room and a glazed porch that opens further into the utility/cloakroom. The elegant dining room has ceiling beams and two windows that overlook the terrace at the rear of the house. From the dining room, a door leads to the dual aspect sitting room that has a fireplace. Sliding doors open to the pool room with a heated swimming pool. This room is triple aspect with a polycarbonate roof, raised plant borders and a recently fitted pool pump and filters. A further door from the sitting room leads to the hall and 'official 'front door. On the left of this hall is the study/office and a door from here leads to a further reception room that is currently being used as a bedroom with a bathroom.
On the first floor are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
About the Outside
The property is approached over a long driveway bounded by post and rail fencing and with the paddocks either side. A gate opens onto the large parking and turning area with the detached garage set back to the side of the house.
The detached stone built studio/annexe is on the north west of the house and the ground floor has a large room with kitchenette off and a shower room and a studio/bedroom with exposed ‘A-frame’ on the first floor.
The garage is of good size and adjoins a large stone built livestock barn that has a flagstone and cobbled floor and a clay tiled roof.
The mature gardens wrap around the property and are beautifully planted with some wonderful shrubs and trees including horse chestnut, oak, walnut, maple, silver birch and malus (crab apple) to name a few. Off the pool house is a large sheltered, paved terrace and to the east of the studio/annexe is an established kitchen garden with vegetable beds and fruit trees.
The paddock and land lay to the front and north east of the house. The paddock is around 0.6 acres and has an orchard and a field shelter that has mains water. The field is around 1.5 acres of pasture with a field shelter.
