Rectory Farmhouse is a fine Georgian house set in approx 4.5 acres of land and gardens on the edge of the popular village of Charlton Musgrove in Somerset. The current owners have sympathetically restored this beautiful house to its former glory and it now offers extensive and luxurious accommodation over three floors.
The house is approached via an attractive gravel driveway that sweeps up to a pillared porchway and the front door. The reception hall is delightful and defined by some magnificent original flagstones underfoot. Stairs lead down to a sizeable and dry vaulted cellar once used to store cider and cheese. Off the hall are the sitting room and the dining room, both beautifully proportioned and decorated with understated elegance. The sitting room features a magnificent recessed fireplace and original beams in the ceiling; both rooms are bathed in natural light that pours in through some stunning sash windows overlooking the gardens at the front of the house. The main hall gives way to a rear hall that leads to a utility room and to the kitchen at the heart of the house. Fitted units and integrated appliances marry with wooden worktops and an aga to give this room a comfortable and homely atmosphere prevalent throughout the house. Double doors lead directly to a pretty paved terrace outside.
Stairs from the reception hall lead to a master bedroom suite, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor. All three of these comfortable rooms enjoy oak beams in the ceilings and stunning views of the gardens and the rolling countryside beyond. The bathrooms are well equipped with high end fixtures and fittings. A further staircase climbs to the “attic rooms” and a third bathroom. Again beautifully presented, these bedrooms are charming and characterised by wooden doors, beams and shelves set in the eaves of the house - they offer the ideal teenage get away space!
Just as the house has been restored, so too have its gardens and grounds. Well manicured lawns sweep away to a boundary of majestic mature trees that shelter the property and lend it total privacy. Beyond is a meadow that is currently grazed by sheep, an area of woodland and an orchard. There is also a vegetable garden in raised beds and some potting sheds for storage. The views towards the Stourhead estate and King Alfred’s Tower are stunning! Closer to the house, elegant boxed hedging further shields the terrace whilst two sculpted Yew trees attend the front door. The smart gravel drive extends beyond the front of the house and round to the rear where there is ample parking for several cars.
Charlton Musgrove is a popular village in the heart of Somerset and surrounded by rolling countryside, much of which has been designated an area of outstanding natural beauty. The house sits in a perfect position on the edge of the village.
