A charming Grade II listed farmhouse property dating back we believe to the 1700's with the added benefit of a small detached stone built barn in the garden, offering potential for conversion to annexe accommodation or home office space (subject to any planning permission/consent required). The property has been subject to considerable modernisation and improvement by the present owners who have lived in the property since 2002 and there are surprisingly large rear gardens amounting to approximately 1/2 acre. This unique property is situated in a central level position within the popular village of Banwell and is conveniently situated just a short walk from the village Primary School and other amenities. In brief the versatile accommodation is arranged as follows: Entrance Hall, Study/Snug, Dining Room, Inner hallway with Cloakroom, Sitting Room, large Kitchen/Breakfast Room and Utility Room. On the first floor there is a Master Bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and En-Suite Shower Room, three further double Bedrooms, Bathroom and separate Shower Room. The property is approached via electrically operated double wooden gates which lead to the driveway and parking area for a number of vehicles and there are large gardens to the rear that form a particular feature of the property. This is without doubt, a truly interesting and individual property, still offering huge potential for further enhancement and in our opinion will only be fully appreciated on closer inspection. Viewing arrangements are by appointment only exclusively through Farrons Estate Agents:
The property is situated in a central and convenient position within the sought after village of Banwell, famous for its 'Castle on the hill'.

The popular Churchill Academy with Sixth Form Centre is within 3 miles which also benefits from a Sports Centre and Swimming Pool. For those with an equestrian interest there are many bridle paths and equestrian facilities in the area, for the keen walkers, many countryside routes to explore and for the golfer, a range of top courses to play.

The small front garden is enclosed by wrought iron railings and laid with slate chippings, stone pathways and planted borders. The driveway is accessed via electrically operated double wooden gates and provides plenty of off road parking for a number of vehicles. Located within the rear garden is a detached stone built barn under a pitched and tiled roof. This is in need of renovation and offers fabulous potential for conversion into a home office space/annexe or an Air B and B facility (subject to any necessary planning permission/consent required). The large enclosed rear garden amounts to approximately half an acre (to be confirmed) with hedge and stone wall boundaries. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with an extensive range of mature trees, shrubs and planted borders providing ample space for children to play and for those with a keen gardening interest, loads of potential for a vegetable garden. Immediately outside the rear of the property is a private brick paved courtyard garden with planted borders and rockery with outside lighting and natural stone wall surround. Conveniently, there is a useful right of way to the rear of the property from Littlefields Road providing access to the rear garden. In addition, there is a timber garden shed and greenhouse, a garden store with corrugated and tiled roof and an outside water supply.
Please be advised that due to the property being a listed building, an Energy Performance Certificate is not required on this property.
