This handsome, detached farmhouse occupies a 2.67-acre plot on the edge of North Petherton, and it is within walking distance of the town and its lively community.

The substantial property, named Dancing Hill Farm, comes with a two-acre paddock and good equestrian facilities including four stables, a tack room, a feed store and an arena.

The main dwelling is a stone-built detached period farmhouse, offering well-balanced and comfortable accommodation. Inside, the cosy sitting room has a fireplace with a Clearview log burner, a stained-glass side window and double doors that open to a spacious conservatory with a slate floor and doors to the garden. The dining room also features a log burner and leads to the traditionally styled kitchen/breakfast room with wooden cupboards, contrasting dark work surfaces, a Rayburn, quarry-tiled flooring, a central island and several built-in appliances. At the back of the house, the large rear hall leads through to a study area.

On the first floor, a galleried landing leads to four double bedrooms and a family bathroom including a separate shower.

The principal bedroom benefits from a small ensuite bathroom and from having a dual aspect and far-reaching views of the countryside.

Outside, the attractive partly-walled rear gardens are laid to lawn with well-stocked herbaceous borders along with a patio and a water feature. This garden then leads to the heated swimming pool where there is also a sun patio, along with a plant room, a cloakroom and a shower. A further gate from the garden leads to the stable yard where there are four stables, a tack room and stores, with a floodlit arena beyond. The paddock immediately adjoins the arena.

On one side of the property, there is a large gravel driveway providing parking space for several vehicles and leading to a double garage.
