This charming farmhouse originally dates back to the 1800's and has been carefully renovated to create the most wonderful, sleek family home, which maintains the quintessential character features associated with a property of it's ilk; exposed stone walls, imposing inglenook fireplaces, exposed beams, flagstone floors and such like. The property is initially approached via a gated driveway which provides ample parking, leading to the double garage and associated grounds for the property, which benefit from excellent views over surrounding woodland and toward Alfreds Tower. The pleasing aesthetic nature of the property externally is continued internally with immaculately presented accommodation throughout. Border Farm is idyllic for all equestrian enthusiasts and those looking for the "escape to the country" lifestyle.

The property is initially approached via a five bar gate which provides access to the large off road parking area and in turn the garage and workshop. There is a vegetable patch and a greenhouse to the side of the driveway. To the rear of the driveway there is a further five bar gate which provides direct access to the paddock without any need to intrude on the more formal garden area. A side gate from the driveway leads to the footpath with a natural stone surround providing access to the rear of the property. Adjacent to the natural stone wall is a slightly elevated patio area, which is ideal for alfresco dining and hosting alike, this in turn leads on to a large lawned area with various fruit trees which backs on to the paddock.
The paddock itself benefits from exceptional views towards Stourhead gardens and particularly Alfreds tower and offers well draining pasture land with mature hedging. Within the paddock there is the added benefit of two stables with a lean to for useful storage all positioned on hard standing. It has mains water and an additional access point directly from the main road. Further riding is available throughout the neighbouring woodland through a riders permit which comes at a cost of around £25 per year. All of this creates a wonderful property for all equestrian enthusiasts.
