Offered to the market for the first time since the 1880s is a superb and incredibly rare opportunity to purchase a large four-bedroom period farmhouse, complete with an integrated one-bedroom self-contained apartment, and an attached three-bedroom modern annexe, over 4600 sq ft of accommodation, set in wonderful established grounds with far reaching views.
Merryhill Farm provides a seldom available chance for buyers who are looking to purchase a forever home, with space to co-habit with other family members/dependent relatives, or indeed utilise the extensive accommodation to create an additional income. The property can also be used as one large eight-bedroom house as the additional dwellings have interlinking doors to the main property as well as their own private entrances.
Set in an outstanding rural position in Nempnett Thrubwell, with exceptional far-reaching views towards the Mendip Hills, Merryhill Farm shares a level private driveway with just a small clutch of other unique period homes that once all formed part of the original farm. Although the driveway has shared access with the neighbouring properties, the driveway and yard belong to Merryhill Farm. Occupying a privileged position to the south of the enclave, the Main Farmhouse is full of original character including an original inglenook fireplace, beams and exposed stone walls. With generous proportions throughout, there are three/four reception room, large kitchen/breakfast room with Small Bone kitchen units, spacious utility with four bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor. Accessed by a separate doorway is a self-contained one-bedroom apartment on the first floor of the farmhouse which could easily be integrated back into the main property if desired.
To the right of the farmhouse is a splendid annexe, which offers a further three bedrooms, two receptions rooms and its own private garden. Having been renovated in recent years the annexe offers a far more contemporary living space with modern features and refined fittings.
Outside, there is ample parking for a good number of cars, several outbuildings, garaging, hardstanding and a superb glass fronted showroom for a cherished vehicle.
To the rear of the house, enjoying a spectacular south facing aspect is the glorious lawned rear garden which features a large ornamental pond, beautiful Scandinavian summer house, and pristine level lawn. To the rear of the garden wrought iron railings separate the Farm from a large paddock of approximately 11 acres which is available by separate negotiations. The property itself sits in grounds of just over an acre, and enjoys breath taking views over the rolling hills of the surrounding countryside towards the Mendip Hills and North Somerset coast-line.
The hamlet of Nempnett Thrubwell lies in the heart of Chew Valley countryside near the village of Butcombe and within reach of both Blagdon and Winford. Both these villages have local facilities including shops, pubs and primary schooling. There is also access to the Chew Valley medical centre. Secondary schools can be found in Bristol, Winford, and The Chew Valley as well as independent schools in Wells, Winscombe and Bristol. Nempnett Thrubwell is readily accessible to, Wells, Bristol in the North and to the east, the Georgian city of Bath is a huge attraction. There is also good motorway and mainline railway access here and Bristol Airport with its low cost air schedule is also close by but away from the flight path.
Heading towards Redhill on the A38 Bridgwater Road from the direction of Bristol, once you have passed Bristol Airport continue across the roundabout and onto Redhill approximately half a mile down the road on the left-hand side you will see a turning onto Row of Ashes Lane, continue to the cross roads and proceed straight over onto Green Lane. Merry Hill Farm can be found a little way along the lane on the right-hand side.
