Having been in the ownership of the Vendor’s family for almost 50 years the sale of Hisbeers Farm represents a rare opportunity to acquire an adaptable residential holding occupying a delightful and yet readily accessible position within an extremely sought-after part of rural South Somerset. The farmhouse is now in need of complete refurbishment having been unoccupied for nearly 2 years and affords great potential to create an attractive family home, overlooking an appealing range of traditional farm buildings whilst also enjoying fine views over the surrounding countryside. The residential appeal of the property is further enhanced by the second dwelling, known as Barnsclose, a well-presented detached chalet bungalow (subject to an AOC). The remaining farm buildings are a combination of modern and traditional construction currently utilised for agricultural purposes yet adaptable to a variety of alternative uses, subject to obtaining any necessary planning consent. The adjoining land is currently sown to pasture and considered well suited to agricultural, equestrian or other amenity uses.
Hisbeers Farm extends in total to about 113.03 Acres and is offered for sale as a whole or in up to two lots as detailed in these sale particulars.
Hisbeers Farm occupies an enviable position at the end of a 450 meter private driveway, surrounded by its own land. The property lies on the eastern edge of the Blackdown Hills, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and widely regarded as some of the most attractive countryside in the county. Enjoying an elevated position, the property enjoys fine country views over the Taunton Vale and beyond.
The property is situated approximately 2.5 miles to the north east of Buckland St Mary and 2 miles to the west of Broadway. Buckland St Mary provides amenities to include a primary school and parish church whilst the larger communities of Broadway and Horton provide a primary school, general store, post office, public house and church along with a Doctors surgery. Ilminster is about 5 miles away from the property, providing further amenities for day to day needs whilst the county town of Taunton affords an excellent range of commercial, educational and recreational facilities befitting an important regional and administrative centre, including three noted public schools and lies approximately 8.5 miles to the north.
