This is a most interesting property, comprising an attractive farmhouse, with a range of barns and outbuildings, all requiring renovation, enjoying a rural but not isolated situation, with gardens and ground amounting to almost eight acres. EPC F.
Shride Farm comprises an attractive residential small holding (not listed), situated on the outskirts of the village of Othery, which lies roughly equidistant from the own of, Street, to the east and Somerset’s county town, Taunton, to the west. Othery has a primary school, village hall and a church.
The property is accessed from the main road by a long and initially shared driveway, leading passed two orchards (one to either side of the drive) and into either a driveway adjacent to the house, or passed and into a yard, in turn leading to the paddock.
The house itself, although requiring modernisation and improvement, provides accommodation of good proportions arranged over two floors. The ground floor features two main reception rooms, a farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room with an Aga, a utility room with a cloakroom and bathroom off. There is also a conservatory and central hallway. On the first floor, a landing provides access to five double bedrooms.
Outside are six barns, five of which are attached to the house via a large boot/utility room, itself accessed internally from the kitchen, or externally from doors to either side. There is a working hand pump within this room, although the water is not thought to be drinkable. One of the barns, attached to the house’s east elevation has a first floor.
The paddock lies to the east of the property and is laid to pasture.
We believe Shride Farm offers considerable scope for improvement and for the potential for a number of future uses – subject to obtaining any required permissions. Properties like these are becoming increasingly rare, so would encourage an early appointment to view.
