EQUESTRIAN - Brookland Farm started life as a humble period cottage and has had a number of sympathetic extensions over the years, which have created the substantial family house you see today. The current owners have undertaken an extensive program of modernisation during their tenure which also included the building of a spectacular fitness studio and office. The flow and proportions have been well maintained and are perfect for family use. The property itself stands beautifully within its 11 acres and has first class equestrian facilities with good ride out. Further equestrian facilities such as Badgworth arena are available in the nearby area.
The house has generous formal rooms including the substantial and surprisingly light drawing room which is a double aspect room with a wonderful inglenook fireplace taking centre stage. Akin with modern trends there is a generous kitchen/breakfast room complete with island breakfast bar, AGA and summer cooking. A further essential item is the large utility/boot room with independent garden access, secondary kitchen facilities and ample space for boots, coats etc. For formal entertaining the dining room has a wonderful view through the conservatory and on to the pond and grounds beyond.
Rising to the first floor, all bedrooms enjoy a pleasant outlook over the private grounds or indeed the surrounding countryside. Recently updated bathrooms help complement the modern feel. The attached fitness studio is entered via the drawing room and whilst currently used for holding Pilates classes the room has a number of other potential uses including gymnasium or large home workspace. The mezzanine area has an exceptionally large window with pleasant views over the private tennis court.

Brookland Farm is located on the cusp of the charming and largely period village of Stone Allerton. This is one of the more sought after villages in the area which include Stone Allerton, Chapel Allerton and Wedmore. Much loved due to the rural feel yet close proximity to a number of excellent schools including Sidcot School, Millfield School and Wells Cathedral School as well as a number of well regarded primary schools and state secondary schools also in the area. The nearby village of Wedmore offers a full range of boutique shops, cafes and pubs. Wells Cathedral City has a further extensive array. The M5 motorway network can be accessed at Junction 22 leading south to Exeter or north to Bristol.
The property is entered via electrically operated gates onto a generous and lit driveway with ample parking. The driveway splits into two and is of a sufficient size for larger vehicles such as horse boxes with further facilities for out of sight storage.
The stable building is split into two sections with 11 boxes in total, turn out yard and independent access to the paddocks. There is also a winter shelter within the grounds. The tennis court is in excellent condition and is much loved by the current family.
Surrounding the house are a number of mature and well planted herbaceous borders as well as a small pond providing a focal point to the rear patio. The remainder of the land is stock proofed and is suitable for both large and small animals with a mixture of hedging and fencing. There are various water butts and there is excellent access between the fields making rotational grazing possible.
