Positioned in an incredibly private location with far reaching views
A superb 5 bedroom principal house sitting in the middle of its land, with no public rights of way and spectacular far-reaching views. Triple garage block, 2 bedroom cottage, studio, timber-framed stable barn. Large lake and extensive undulating pasture land. About 81 acres. EPC rating B.
Wellwood Farm is situated in a tranquil and secluded position within the middle of its own land in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The long private drive creates a magnificent and lasting first impression of the property, with astonishing views over the lake and rolling countryside beyond.
Wellwood Farm is a new 5 bedroom house, but it is believed that there has been a farm on the site for over a thousand years, and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. Light, open-plan living with modern conveniences make this a superb family home.
Meticulous attention to detail and bespoke design features are notable throughout the main house and local building materials have been used where possible. Sherborne stone floors feature throughout the ground floor, with under-floor heating in in every room.
A 2 bedroom cottage is carefully positioned to enjoy the views without intruding on the main house. It has a private area of garden to the rear.
A large, double height studio is attached to the cottage and would make a superb home office or party room.
The timber-framed stable barn lies to the east of the property, with tack room and 3 loose boxes. 3 further boxes could easily be added. The barn is surrounded by useful areas of hardstanding. Addional planning opportunites exist to enhance the equestrian facilities.
Sitting in the middle of about 81 acres, with no public rights of access, Wellwood Farm provides an enviable level of privacy. Further land is also available.
