Property Description

Tenure: Freehold

A fascinating 5 bedroom Grade II Listed former farmhouse steeped in history with some wonderful character features, a separate coach house, large partly walled garden and swimming pool.


With origins going back some 500 years this interesting period home has been much altered over time and would now benefit from some updating to bring it into the 21st Century. Constructed with massive stone walls, partly rendered, and set beneath a mainly thatched roof, Long Haddon is listed as a late medieval open hall house, and offers masses of space oozing with character features and a flexible layout. A fine cross passage hallway gives access to four very comfortable reception rooms including a music room with heavily timbered ceiling that in turn leads to a very cosy sitting room with massive hamstone fireplace. To the other side of the hallway is the snug with muntin screen, deep brick inglenook with inset ovens and glazed double doors to the dining room, a double aspect room again with heavily timbered ceiling. The kitchen and breakfast area enjoy a westerly aspect with access to the garden and the ground floor is completed by a laundry room, wet room and general store room. To the first floor are five generous bedrooms and a family bathroom. Gas fired central heating is installed and there is a gas fired Aga in the kitchen. This is a much loved family home that has been in the same ownership for over 30 years and now affords buyers the opportunity to acquire a piece of history they can update to their own taste and living requirements.
From the village road double gates give access into a wide gravelled courtyard and parking area. The property aslo enjoys a right of way over a driveway belonging to the neighbouring property, effectively creating 'in/out' access. Garaging is currently provided in The Coach House, a substantial outbuilding of stone and rendered construction (in need of re-roofing) which would easily convert to ancillary accommodation, subject to any planning requirements. The gardens lie mainly to the rear of the house, sheltered and partly walled, with extensive lawned areas, established shrubs and trees and an enclosed swimming pool. There is a small enclosed front garden and a side lawn. The whole area is believed to extend to an estimated 0.5 Acre.

Long Haddon is conveniently located on the very edge of Tatworth in the old part of this popular residential village on the Somerset/Devon border and close to Dorset. Tatworth provides good local amenities that include a small supermarket/post office, pub, social club and well regarded primary school, whilst Chard itself lies just 2 miles to the North. Chard offers a choice of major supermarkets, smaller retailers, good educational and leisure facilities and the traditional market town of Axminster is just 8 miles to the South with intercity rail link (Exeter, London Waterloo). The World Heritage Jurassic Coast is a further 6 miles away at Lyme Regis with a range of boutique shops and the famous Cobb Harbour. The surrounding countryside is mainly traditional mixed farmland, undulating and gloriously unspoilt with footpaths, bridleways and quiet lanes. The County town of Taunton is some 16 miles away with access to the M5 motorway and Bristol International Airport is easily accessible.
