Bathway Farm is a charming and traditional Somerset Longhouse dating back to the 18th century and sitting in a most enviable and picturesque plot of circa 9 acres. The property is beautifully presented throughout and blends character and modern comfort superbly to create a unique and wonderful family home. In brief the main residence comprises an entrance hall, study, utility room, WC, large kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, drawing room, sitting room and conservatory to the ground floor, whilst to the first floor are 4 bedrooms all with ensuite facilities. The property is as appealing inside as out with all the rooms providing exceptional living space for all the family. Typically, the kitchen is the heart of the home, a cool escape in the heat of summer and a warm and welcoming retreat in the winter months with the luxury of an Esse stove and central island in the form of a large butchers block. For those looking to entertain friends and family in style and set in the most appealing of locations, then look no further - exposed brick-work and wooden beams as well as parquet flooring and an inglenook fireplace provide plenty of character. Natural light and views greet you at every turn whilst the large conservatory, with double doors opening out to the expansive gardens can be used all year round. For anyone looking to entertain more formally, the dining room and drawing room add to the pomp of this exceptional home. All the bedrooms are of a good size and all have ensuite facilities (some including cast-iron, roll-top baths), ideal for those looking to host or perhaps for a an opportunity to create a Bed and Breakfast should one desire. All in all this really is a remarkable home, rarely available on today's market and providing not only the most inviting and immaculate accommodation but a truly traditional and beautiful family home.

The annexe

Situated opposite the main residence The Ox House is a quite breath-taking addition. Designed by the current owners and built to a top spec, the accommodation comprises a large sitting room, open plan kitchen diner and WC to the ground floor and to the first floor (accessed by a spiral staircase) there is a large double bedroom with ensuite (including separate bath and shower) and double doors leading to an elevated decking area with spectacular views over the local countryside. Fitted with its own wood burner, space saving radiators and all mod-cons it could be utilised as an annexe, extra accommodation or holiday let.

The sought after village of Chewton Mendip lies in a convenient position north of Wells and therefore very commutable to both Bristol and Bath. The village has a primary school with an enviable reputation as well as a good community spirit. Further facilities include a pre-school, village shop, village hall, church and public house. The village is situated within the Mendip Hills, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Wells is a short drive to the south where there are excellent secondary educational establishments, namely Wells Cathedral School and The Blue School.

The property is approached by a private, tree-lined, gravel driveway leading to the main courtyard with a central water fountain. The main garden to the property lies to the front and left and is a wonderful combination of level lawn, mature flora and fauna and a small duck pond. It makes for an ideal escape for children as well as offering any keen gardeners a blank canvass to landscape and design as they choose. Equally the secluded and generous gardens offer the perfect grounds for entertaining and alfresco dining. The central courtyard and water fountain provide a traditional and grand focal point with access to the stabling, main residence and the detached Annexe. There is also a triple car port and workshop.

Equestrian Facilities and land

The site, should one wish, is ideally set up as an equestrian centre with 10 stable units, tack room and large barn as well as a sand based menage arena. In total the plot is circa 9 acres of pastoral land and gardens. The acreage lies mainly to the rear of the property with water supplies and excellent access. Whether it be an equestrian investment or generous small-holding, Bathway Farm offers endless possibilities in a picturesque village close to the Cathedral City of Wells and must be seen.
