Farmhouse for sale overlooking Glastonbury Festival site

A PERIOD farmhouse just outside Pilton overlooking the Glastonbury Festival site is for sale.

The large 23 acre house including gardens, orchards and paddocks has stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

Located in the hamlet of Cannards Grove, near Shepton Mallet, it is on the market with Savills for £1.75million.

The main rooms of the property, spread over three floors, have sash windows, exposed beams and fireplaces.

The ground floor comprises an entrance hall, a living room with fireplace, a dining room with wood burning stove, cozy with direct access to the rear garden from the exterior courtyard and a full kitchen breakfast room with Aga. There is an office, a laundry room and an enclosed porch.

On the first floor are four bedrooms, two en-suite shower rooms and a family bathroom. Additionally, there is a family room with floor to ceiling windows and stunning views as well as stairs to a game room with a vaulted ceiling.

On the second floor is another bedroom as well as three other lofts/stores, which offer additional potential.

Outside there is access to a partly completed annex wing adjoining the house, arranged on three floors. It is an open plan and offers further potential to create additional living space.

Front access leads to ample parking with access to a single garage. The gardens extend to the front of the house and include lawns, flower beds, raised vegetable beds and a well stocked fruit cage. There is a large enclosed pond and a grove.

The views forward are simply breathtaking enjoying a full 40 mile panoramic view of the neighboring Somerset countryside and stretching from the Bristol Channel and even South Glamorgan to the west with Cranborne Chase east.

To the side and rear of the house are two large barns. The first is divided into three sections and ideal for storage or leisure. The second is at the rear and needs to be rebuilt, but offers a large footprint and other possibilities (subject to clearances).
