Property SummaryDating from the 1500s, Pomeroy Farm is a magnificent family home discreetly situated just a stone’s throw away from the fashionable town of Bruton in the heart of the Somerset countryside. Over recent years, the house has been tastefully embellished and extended to afford luxurious accommodation of just under 6000 sq ft over three floors. Built of traditional Hamstone and featuring many original features, this charming house is unusually beautiful and offers a wonderful opportunity to savour Somerset life at its best.
A gravel driveway is accessed via electronic gates and offers ample parking for several cars. An impressive double height entrance hall leads to an elegant kitchen / diner at the heart of the house. Exposed oak beams adorn the ceiling whilst attractive blue lias stone lies underfoot, warmed via an air source heat pump - this space is perfect for entertaining as well as functioning as a cosy family room with a woodburner nestling under an elegant stone fireplace. The kitchen itself is bathed in natural light and features handmade units, granite work surfaces, a belfast sink and integrated appliances. Double doors lead directly to a snug on one side and to a pretty terrace overlooking the garden on the other. Also off the hall and adjacent to the kitchen is a well-equipped utility room/pantry and a good sized boot room.
Three further reception rooms, a study, a dining room and a sitting room, offer comfortable and elegant living spaces, all well-proportioned and with wonderful views of the gardens and the surrounding countryside. Heritage flagstones sit alongside chic wooden floors and hint at a rich history going back almost five hundred years. The ground floor also features a therapy room, a laundry and a cloakroom before accessing a delightful one bed annexe, ideal for a nanny, or as further, self-contained accommodation that could potentially provide an additional revenue stream. It also has access to an enchanting and private walled courtyard with its own entrance.
Stairs from the hall lead to a landing and four, well-proportioned and spacious bedrooms, two with en suite bathrooms and a family bathroom. Another staircase leads to three further bedrooms on the second floor and a further family bathroom. The latter would lend itself to a sumptuous master bedroom suite with a dressing room that would occupy the whole floor. All the bedrooms are charming, some with wooden floors and fitted cupboards, some nestling amongst the eaves on the second floor. The bathrooms are all equipped with high end fixtures and fittings that include walk in power showers, heated towel rails and stand-alone bathtubs.
This beautiful house is situated entirely within its own land, and grounds that incorporate gardens mostly laid to lawn that sweep away from the main house, a fabulous terrace that overlooks them and a heated open air swimming pool, together with a pool house. Further afield is a tennis court, cricket nets and an impressive wooden pavilion ideal as an outdoor games room, office or studio. Equestrian facilities abound with a paddock, extensive stables and a riding school that offer every amenity for an equestrian lifestyle.
Further outbuildings and barns allow excellent storage facilities for all outdoor equipment necessary for maintaining the land and gardens. A canopy of mature trees lie along the boundary of the property and provide privacy and protection.
