A conveniently situated Georgian farmhouse, Listed Grade II, with two bedroom annexe cottage and beautifully stocked gardens and grounds.

This particularly handsome south facing Georgian farmhouse is certainly worthy of its Grade II listing and has been well-maintained and improved over the years by the present owner. The well-proportioned and elegant accommodation is immaculately decorated and is an extremely comfortable country home. Good reception space includes a pretty drawing room with sash windows, shutters and handsome marble fireplace, a morning room which is presently used as a study, a formal dining room with sash windows, shutters and a wood burning stove and an off-set china pantry. A wide opening from the dining room leads into a well-fitted kitchen which has an electric Aga. The four bedrooms are all of good size and there is a well-fitted family bathroom and an en-suite shower room. The annex cottage provides an excellent letting property, as it has been for many years and is currently let with Classic Cottages with a four star rating.

The cottage has a reception hall, doors leading into an en-suite double bedroom, a large open reception room with wood burning stove and provides a spacious sitting area, space for a dining table and an off-set well-fitted kitchen with all appliances. French doors lead out to the front of the cottage and from the reception room a door leads through to the second en-suite bedroom.

Grange Farm occupies a secluded and peaceful setting, surrounded by traditional farmland and yet is within a few minutes' drive of excellent communications and amenities. Wembdon itself has a post office and shop, a country pub, 'The Cottage Inn', a church, a garage and MOT centre, a pre-school, primary school and modern village hall with sports fields. A secondary school and sports complex with swimming pool and gym are situated just beyond the village of Chilton Trinity, just over a mile from Grange Farm. Other notable amenities include Trinity Waters providing course fishing. There are also many circular walks over surrounding farmland and, of course, the Quantock Hills are within easy reach providing walking and riding countryside. Communications are excellent with the M5 Motorway Junctions 23 & 24 providing fast and easy access to Bristol with Cribbs Causeway with a John Lewis store at Junction 17 and London via the M4. Taunton also has M5 Motorway Junction 25 and mainline railway station providing fast trains to London Paddington scheduled to arrive within an hour and forty-five minutes.

A pillared entrance with white painted drive gate leads into Grange Farm – the drive opens up to provide ample gravel parking. The orchard has a hen run, vegetable area, a selection of fruit trees, including apples, walnuts, medlar and quince. A gate leads through to the field with small wildlife pond. The formal garden to the front of the property is beautifully stocked with a variety of fruit trees, herbaceous borders and fruit cages and has a summer house, greenhouse and stone garden shed. Trees in the garden include medlar, quince, plum, several pears, cooking apple, greengage and crab-apple. A patio to the front of the property is south facing. A lovely old garden wall with door leads out to the less formal cottage garden with a detached granary barn and stable, a cart shed providing excellent storage and a lily pond.
