A striking detached family home with generous accommodation, gardens and grounds extending to approximately 4 acres and close to the popular Somerset towns of Frome and Bruton. (Approximately 2,547 sq ft / 236.6 sq m)
Highfield is an imposing detached Grade II listed family home situated on the fringes of the popular village of Upton Noble between Frome and Bruton. The accommodation is generous and full of character with attractive fireplaces, sash windows, flagstone floors and high ceilings. The drawing room offers excellent proportions, a large inglenook fireplace with a wood-burning stove and overlooks the front garden. The kitchen has been recently enlarged to create a superb and modern open-plan kitchen/dining room with French windows that open on to a south-west facing terrace; adjacent to the kitchen is a further reception room that could be used as a further sitting room, a games room or study.
The four bedrooms are all good sizes with the three principal bedrooms located on the first and second floors. The main bedroom has an attractive stone inglenook fireplace, beamed and vaulted ceiling with far-reaching views towards Bruton. The bathroom is located on the ground floor; however there is a cloakroom on the first floor that could be adapted to become a shower room and large landing on the second floor that again could be used for an additional bath/shower room subject to the necessary consents.
Outside, the gardens lie to front of the house and are pretty and private. Across the country lane to rear of the house there is plenty of parking and some former stables. There is a vegetable garden too and a large field which brings the total curtilage to approximately 4 acres.
The village of Upton Noble is a thriving community offering a village primary school, which is highly regarded and also a church. Frome is just over 8 miles away and offers a comprehensive range of shopping and recreational facilities, as does Bruton 3 miles distant. Nearby is also the attractive market town of Castle Cary with a main line station to Paddington, also stations at Bruton, Gillingham with a main line to London Waterloo, Westbury and Frome.
