DESCRIPTION 'Waterfront Farm' as a whole comprises three separate principal buildings, set within six acres of stunning Somerset countryside. The majestic Mendip Hills provides a stunning backdrop and the property also boast a serene 400 metre stretch of riverbank with fishing rights on the River Axe.
The complex itself includes a large & recently refurbished detached family residence with log cabin/office, known as 'Waterfront Farm', which is nearing completion, as well as two gorgeous individual character properties, known as 'River Cottage' and 'Meadowside Lodge'.
The principal residence, Waterfront Farm is an exceptional contemporary family home that takes full advantage of its beautiful waterside position. Boasting uninterrupted views from many of the stylish rooms this large family home features 4 double bedrooms, all of which feature en-suite bathrooms plus there is a stylish family bathroom. The Master bedroom is quite magnificent with a glorious balcony from which to purvey the wonderful countryside and towering Crook Peak with the River Axe meandering past. The dual aspect living room with its under floor heating and floor to ceiling windows quite literally brings the outside in, whilst the sleek modern kitchen/diner is perfect for entertaining guests as they marvel at the properties unique position. Beyond the kitchen a lovely conservatory provides a tranquil and quiet space to read a book and relax. Waterfront Farm is a sleek, modern, masterpiece designed to take full advantage of its glorious setting, and its position within the escarpment affords superb and unexpected privacy.
The Lodge provides yet another source of potential income. This well built timber cabin could easily be utilised as a separate dwelling or rental for those with a sense of adventure. With its double glazed windows and cool bed deck this uber trendy abode could provide the perfect contrast for the City dweller looking for a back to nature rustic experience, far more glamping than camping! Alternatively, the Lodge could also be utilised as a home/business office for anyone looking to fulfil the potential of offering Yurt or Shepherd's Hut accommodation on the adjoining land.
The attractive Primrose painted River Cottage offers charm in abundance from the moment you enter through the Green Oak Porch that is flanked by a lovely covered veranda. Internally the stunning interior has been sympathetically designed to complement the wonderful surroundings, there is charming snug with an attractive brick fireplace with Oak mantle which is inset with a cast iron wood burner, perfect for warming your tired feet after a long country walk, a lovely open pine staircase rises to the first floor and the two characterful bedrooms which both feature private en-suite bathrooms.
The homely kitchen/diner features traditional farmhouse style units with plenty of space for a good sized dining table and the is further enhanced by a beautiful stone floor which adds further richness and character. Beyond the kitchen is a useful utility and wet room. By far the crowning glory of the property is the magnificent Oak framed Living/Garden room which lies to the rear of the kitchen and basks in superb natural light from its floor to ceiling windows. The dramatic vaulted ceiling displays the superb craftsmanship of the Oak frame and cool stone floor and French doors literally flow the accommodation out to the beautiful private garden. When the Living/Garden room was constructed thoughtful planning was implemented to allow an easy conversion of the rear of the room to a third double bedroom, with access to an en-suite bathroom at very minimum cost and disruption. There is also under floor heating throughout the ground floor. Outside, 'Waterfront Farm' revels in its secluded riverside position.
A generous rear garden is in the main laid to lawn and is enclosed by a charming post and rail fence with both mature trees and recently planted infant specimens. Adjacent to the garden is a level paddock of approximately 0.6 acre, ideal for keeping a pony or perhaps even a picturesque camping/glamping site for those looking for extra revenue.
Meadowside Lodge adjoins River Cottage and indeed could form one larger premise's if desired. Although attached, the property still retains a good degree of privacy and seclusion and is wonderfully individual in its appeal. On the ground floor the well presented accommodation currently comprises a welcoming open plan Living/kitchen/diner with a modern contemporary kitchen area with breakfast bar and fitted oven, dishwasher/fridge etc and a smart polished tiled floor. The living area flows directly into a useful additional conservatory which enjoys a south and west aspect and outlook over the private garden.
A double bedroom is situated to the rear of the living room and sits alongside fitted/dressing area which provides access to a useful utility space and walk in wet room. Above the ground floor, currently with separate access to the rear of Meadowside Lodge, is a large open plan studio room which could easily be adapted and brought into the main building to provide and extra two bedrooms and bathroom and large utility room with WC (ground floor). To the front of the property lies a pretty enclosed courtyard with a covered veranda, and to the side a pretty lawned garden enjoy a wonderfully sunny aspect and is a super position to enjoy an evening G & T. There is a spacious gravelled driveway area with parking for several vehicles.
