About the Property.

Upper Weare Farm is a Grade II listed farmhouse offering well-presented and spacious accommodation spread over two floors. A single storey annexe has been set up for a dependant relative, whilst the characterful two storey barn conversion is a successful one bedroom holiday let. A large and pretty garden backs onto 4 acres of paddocks with stables and storage barn. Stunning views across to the Mendip Hills can be enjoyed from a thoughtfully placed bench in the top paddock. The property also benefits from a Triple garage and plenty of parking.

About the Inside.

The front door welcomes you into a spacious entrance hall with access to the annexe to the right and stairs to the first floor. To the left is a dining room with a large inglenook fireplace housing a woodburning stove. This leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room with a classic cream country kitchen with Aga, Belfast sink and granite worktops. A walk-in pantry provides plenty of storage, and the kitchen window enjoys views over the garden to the paddocks beyond. Adjoining the kitchen is a cosy sitting room with a large inglenook fireplace and bread oven. Beyond the kitchen is a spacious utility/rear entrance hall with a cloakroom, and door to the side. The main living room is a light and generous space with an open fireplace and a glazed door straight onto the rear terrace.

Upstairs there are five well proportioned bedrooms. The principal bedroom features exposed beams, built-in wardrobes and a large en-suite bathroom with a jacuzzi bath and separate shower cubicle. The family bathroom has a lovely freestanding clawfoot bath, separate shower and airing cupboard.

About the Annexe.

The annexe has a door from the main farmhouse, and also its own private entrance at the side. The annexe includes a modern spacious kitchen, oak floored sitting room with feature stone fireplace, large bedroom and a practical wetroom making the property ideal for a dependant relative.

About the Barn Conversion.

With plenty of character and exposed stone walls, the barn has a simple open plan living room/kitchen on the ground floor, entrance hall with cloakroom, and a first floor bedroom and shower room in the eaves. A little reading nook on the landing is filled with natural light.

About the Outside.

The front of Upper Wear Farm has a low stone wall with a low maintenance front garden and a paved path to the front door. To the left hand side, an electric gate opens to a generous parking area and the triple garage and stone storage barn. An arched timber door set in a high stone wall reveals a large and prettily landscaped south facing rear garden laid mainly to lawn with a paved terrace running across the back of the house which takes in views of the garden and the paddocks beyond. A timber pergola, heaving with figs and wisteria, provides a sheltered and secluded place to sit, and hides a quirky stone built seating area and a gardeners room.

A private track alongside the barn conversion leads to the stable yard with timber stables and barn with power, light and water. The land is divided into three fenced paddocks and bordered by mature trees and hedgerows. Also within the curtilage of the property is further gravelled parking for up to 4 cars.
