Old Prospect Farm is a stunning and beautifully positioned period house which has been the long term family home of the current owners. They have enhanced the house over the years including the partial re-thatching you will see. The house is a true ‘village house’ located on one of Mells ancient roads and within reach of its many facilities. It offers a superb amount of land for a village house with approximately 13 acres available in total. This not only gives great versatility to the house, but also protects the view to the rear of the property, with the view to the front over the mature trees abutting the river Mells. A central music room creates a wonderful reception room with ancient flag stone flooring, exposed beams and cast iron radiators. Adjacent is a central sitting room with the most glorious and impressive Bath stone fireplace, wood panelling and ceiling beams adding to the charm. The second reception has a more contemporary feel creating a smart contrast. Adding to a modern feel in this period home is the smart kitchen with sleek units under marble and granite worktops, a central island and a three oven electric Aga. Polished granite stone flooring flows into the dining area which benefits from double doors opening to the side terrace. The spacious first floor landing can be used as a further reception space or study and has all bedrooms leading off. The more recent wing houses a bedroom, shower room and dressing room. The family bathroom has a free standing claw foot bath plus a walk in shower, another contrast with new and old. The three further bedrooms are all well-proportioned doubles with pleasant aspects.
Converted from an old barn, the annexe is currently run as a successful letting business. It is positioned on the other side of the drive and enjoys its own courtyard and parking away from the house.
