New Church Farm House is a former farmhouse constructed in the 18th century of stone elevations under a tiled mansard roof. Originally a dairy farm it belonged to the Longleat Estate until it was sold in 1947. The versatile accommodation is laid out over three floors and has been upgraded to provide comfortable living whilst retaining many of the period features and character that you would expect from a property of its age. These include exposed beams and a large inglenook fireplace with bread oven in the sitting room.

The principal reception rooms all look out over the beautiful gardens, and being south facing, are extremely light. The heart of the home is a wonderful kitchen/breakfast room with a good range of cupboards, an electric four oven Aga and a large central island. The breakfast area has overhead skylights making it very light. A step leads down to a snug area with a wood burner and French doors to a terrace.

On the first floor is a very pretty master bedroom with a good range of fitted wardrobes and large ensuite bathroom. There are two further bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room, and a separate family bathroom. On the second floor are two further bedrooms and second family bathroom.

New Church Farm is located in the quiet hamlet of East Woodlands overlooking a picturesque rolling rural landscape and backing onto the Longleat Estate. There is a village hall, church and pub all nearby. The thriving market town of Frome is close by which has an active arts scene with a wide variety of entertainment venues including a cinema and two theatres. The town also has an excellent range of independent shops, a monthly artisan market, and the annual Frome Festival in July. It has good road and rail access to Bath, Bristol and London, and was voted number 7 in the Sunday Times 2014 'Top 30 Places To Live'.

Bruton has further amenities with a good range of restaurants including the excellent At The Chapel, a wide range of independent retailers and the new highly regarded art gallery; Hauser and Wirth. The cathedral city of Bath is 16 miles to the north and offers a comprehensive range of cultural, leisure and business amenities. Westbury has a mainline railway station with direct trains to London Paddington (90 minutes).

Communications by road are excellent with the A303 providing a link to the M3, M25 and London, or the West Country.

New Church Farm is ideally located for fishing, shooting and riding, with the possibility of obtaining a permit to hack on the Longleat Estate. Also within easy reach are racecourses at Bath, Wincanton and Salisbury. The renowned Babington House Private Members Club, the country branch of Soho House, is just 11 miles away and offers many recreational facilities.

There is a wide range of highly regarded schools in the locality including Warminster School, King's School Bruton, All Hallows Preparatory School, Downside School, and further afield Sherborne, St Mary's Shaftesbury, Millfield School and Wells Cathedral School. Bath schools include Monkton Combe, Prior Park College, King Edwards, The Royal High and Kingswood Schools.

A gravel drive leads to the side of the house where there is ample parking for several cars and a turning circle. A very pretty hedged garden, mostly laid to lawn with mature flower beds and a weeping pear tree is situated to the front elevation. Growing against the front of the house are climbing roses, a wisteria and passion flower. To the side of the house are the old cow stalls which offer the opportunity for development subject to the necessary planning permission. To the rear of the house are beautiful gardens with well stocked flower beds, a flowering cherry and a terrace. Situated at the end of the garden is a large wildlife pond and an established vegetable garden. Beyond the garden is a paddock with stables, which includes two loose boxes, a tack room and a further small barn. Behind the house there is also a hard surface area with open buildings formerly the piggery.
