“The Newt in Somerset” is home to beautiful countryside walks set in the grounds of a Georgian country estate. Within the estate there are a Hotel & Spa, Farm shop, restaurants and house & garden shop. The nearest town is Castle Cary which was described by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner, the eminent architectural historian, as Somerset's prettiest town; set in beautiful unspoilt countryside. The town is characterised by period buildings constructed of the distinctive honey coloured stone for which the area is well known. It remains a delightful small market town with a number of traditional shops and boutiques. On the outskirts of Castle Cary is the railway station with its direct line to Paddington and the A303 road link is a couple of miles south.

Accommodation

Ridgeway Farm is believed to date back to the early 17th century in parts with later non-thatched additions in the 18th century. The property was partially re-thatched in 2021 and is presented immaculately throughout, having been meticulously maintained by the current owners. While the house is a prominent Grade II listed property with immense character, it also enjoys many modern conveniences including the air source heating system, oak-framed double glazing and solar panels, which all help to keep bills down giving you the best of both worlds.

At the front of the property a lavender pathway leads through the garden to the front door which enters a large porch with plenty of room for coats and boots. The porch adjoins the sitting room which is a lovely living space, full of period features. There are flagstones, exposed beams and stud work, and a large inglenook fireplace with inset wood burning stove. On the left-hand side of the sitting room there is another beautiful reception room, currently used as a music room. This room also has exposed ceiling beams and an outstanding, original open fireplace; its dual aspect, perfectly takes in the view of the front garden.

**

The kitchen sits at the rear of the property with doors connecting to the breakfast and dining rooms. Within the kitchen there is an excellent range of bespoke units with granite worktops, an island with hardwood surface and integrated appliances including an induction hob, double oven with grill, and dishwasher. Set between the full height units there is a fridge freezer which could be made available by further negotiation. Further character can be enjoyed here too with flagstones, exposed stonework and a full height vaulted ceiling. Off the kitchen there is a utility room with a cloakroom and side door leading to the kitchen garden. The breakfast room serves as an extension of the kitchen as it has an electric Aga which is set within a magnificent inglenook fireplace with bread oven. Set behind the alcove there is a large, walk-in pantry.

***

From the dining room two sets of double glass doors open to the conservatory allowing the light to pour in. Adjacent there is a study, which then leads into the charming garden room. The views of the fields and gardens are capitalised upon within the double-glazed conservatory which has a brickwork base. In addition there is a ceiling fan which means you can make the most of the room even during the warmest months and electric heaters quickly heat it in the colder months. The staircase rises from the sitting room to a light and airy first floor landing with an outlook over the front garden. The dual-aspect master bedroom suite is most impressive, having a large main room with a built-in storage cupboard and steps lead down to a substantial dressing room with built-in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room.

****

There are three further double bedrooms in the original part of the house, with the use of the family bathroom which has a bath with overhead shower, w/c, and twin basins. The two larger bedrooms enjoy built in storage. At the far end of the guest bedroom a door leads through to a short corridor connecting it to the fifth bedroom and third shower room. The fifth bedroom has an external staircase leading up to it and when paired with the en-suite, it could be used as a perfect holiday let or nanny annexe.

Outside

From Ridgeway Lane, a shared gravel driveway leads past the front garden and round to the double garage, carport and parking area. The front garden is partially walled and laid to lawn with a flourish of spring bulbs around the perimeter and the stone pathway flanked with lavender leading through. The gardens at the rear are expansive and perfectly arranged with an array of fruit trees and bulbs interspersing the lawn, a pond, thick mixed hedgerows, and stunning views of the fields to the rear. There is a gravelled area with productive vegetable beds, garden sheds and a greenhouse; making the most of the sunny westerly aspect. Accessed from the side of the house, there is a workshop providing useful extra storage.
