A beautiful and unique six bedroom country house with its own swimming lake has come up for sale in Somerset.
The wonderfully named Thornfalcon near Taunton is a stunning farmhouse which has been the subject of a major 10 year restoration programme by the current owners.
It is beautiful inside, with stunning country chic interiors and furniture like something out of Country Living magazine.
The result is a stunning old farmhouse with separate coach house and it is a very rare opportunity to buy a period house like this in the Somerset countryside.
The farmhouse sits on beautiful gardens with its own swimming lake which is absolutely stunning.
Great care has been taken to restore this old house to its former glory and to modernise it, traditional materials have been used throughout.
With great attention to detail and sensitivity throughout the work, the house now has immense charm, character and an atmosphere so rarely found.
The library has been well designed with floor to ceiling bookcases and fireplace with wood burning stove. A generous hall stretches across the rear of the house providing a study area has a log cupboard and a secondary staircase rising to the first floor.
There is also a cloakroom. The kitchen is fitted with Plain English cabinets and a large inglenook fireplace with four oven AGA. There is ample room for a large dining table. The dining room is found off the kitchen, has hand painted walls and panelling and a large Inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove.
The Coach House is across the drive from the main house and has kitchen, dining room, living area and large double bedroom and could be used or rented out as a separate living area.
Thornfalcon really has been beautifully and lovingly done it is a dream house for anyone wishing to escape to the countryside, and is on the market with Jackson-Stops in Taunton for £3m.
