Kenn Street Kenn, Clevedon Guide Price £850,000

A charming late Georgian period farmhouse enjoying a quiet setting, hidden away from passers-by in the most sought after part of this attractive North Somerset village. The extensive and very well appointed accommodation includes 5 reception rooms, a superb bespoke kitchen with Aga and bi fold doors to the terrace and gardens, a cinema - games room, gym space, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a range of outbuildings and gardens and paddock totalling about an acre with far reaching views.

The house is thought to have been built around 1820 to supersede the original older farmhouse that still stands to the east. Many 'new' farmhouses or significant additions to existing houses were built in the area around this time due to the increasing prosperity in farming as a consequence of improved farming practices.

In 1892 the farm was sold and we gather that was when the Naish’s, a prominent local farming family acquired the property. In 1924 Victor Naish propagated a small orchard behind Stonehouse Farm with a wide variety of Apple trees to make his Cider which was highly regarded in the immediate area and also used to part pay the farm workers (from the study window).

That orchard still exists beyond the paddock that is included with this house and 95 years later, Ganley and Naish, Craft Cider makers are continuing Victor's legacy by recreating his original Cider named Morning Dew “a perfectly balanced, medium Cider of bittersweet and sharp apples picked from the same orchard behind Stonehouse Farm”.

Today the farmhouse combines the attraction of a warm south facing position overlooking orchards and pasture land on the edge of the village with the advantage of not being isolated or remote. Kenn is a mere 2 miles from the coastal town of Clevedon and 14 miles west of Bristol. A mainline railway station that offers direct services to Bristol, Bath and London - Paddington is less than 2½ miles away in the neighbouring village of Yatton. Junction 20 of the M5 is just over 2 miles away allowing easy access to the county’s motorway network.

This very special property is spacious and well planned with endless accommodation that flows beautifully. The house is enriched with many attractive period features and we are sure that all who view will be delighted.

A likely original panelled front door opens to a through passage hall and leads off to two very fine original primary reception rooms with both enjoying a double aspect.

A study at the front of the house was once where the farm workers were paid while, adjoining the dining room the kitchen is a fabulous blend of modern and traditional with an original period fitted kitchen dresser complemented by a bespoke range of cabinets including a central island that incorporates an integrated dishwasher and a deep Belfast sink. Another classic element of the kitchen is the 4 oven Aga. The light airy feel of the kitchen is remarkable and the feeling of space is further enhanced by the family room to which there is open access. The family room is flooded by natural light with four large Velux style windows and double aspect oak bi-fold doors that open to the terraces and garden.

Following on from the family room there is a rear hall, a cloakroom – shower room and an ample utility room.

A 20’ x 12’ playroom ( or guest room) with high vaulted ceiling and access to the gardens completes the ground floor accommodation of the main house with the Cinema – Gym together with the further outbuildings just a few paces across the drive to the side.

The first floor accommodation arranged off the light bright landing includes a shower room next to the principal bedroom and a very spacious family bathroom.

The bedrooms are everything that might be expected given the superb nature of the property with 4 double rooms each having a period fireplace and the prncipal bedroom has a range of built in wardrobes that match the style of the house.

The property is approached through the pillared gateway to the farm off Kenn Street which opens to the former farm yard that creates a forecourt shared with the immediate neighbouring properties.

The drive continues to the west of the house with a gravelled parking and turning area that can accommodate several cars next to the Cinema – Gym, a deep three bay car port and a further useful outbuilding in which there is a Cider Press that may date from or before the first recorded cider making ventures in 1924.

A veranda extends across the south elevation of the house and shelters a flag stone terrace that is flanked by lavender beds. The terrace continues to the west where the bi-fold doors open from the family room.

The terrace in turn leads to the lawn and a series of easy steps also lead down from the playroom to the lawn that is framed by established planting with an arch to a level grassed area with a variety of fruit trees planted away to one side.

Double gates allow access beyond to a level paddock, a substantial timber cabin – studio is arranged to one side and a five bar gate opens to the drive area allowing access for mowing.
