Located on the Dorset/ Somerset border, amongst open farmland, but by no means isolated, Camel Farm is a 17th Century farmhouse, recently refurbished to a high standard with 5 bedrooms. The entrance opens into a large hallway with cloakroom leading into a spacious kitchen with an Aga range, separate electric hob and oven, window seat and dining area. Off the kitchen is a cosy living room with open fire and plasma television. There is also a separate family room with Wii and PS3 with an adjoining large study with iMac and cloakroom. Central to the house is a huge conservatory with sofa, oak dining table to seat 12 - 16 and double doors out to the garden. A boot room with adjoining laundry gives additional access to the garden. On the first floor there is a master bedroom, bath and shower en suite, walk in wardrobe and plasma television. The remaining four bedrooms consist of; a guest room en suite with single bed and pull- out to make a twin room; exposed rafters and doors with access to the garden via stone steps; two large double rooms and one single room with a shared family bathroom and separate cloakroom. The house is set within large maintained gardens and surrounding fields of approximately 10 acres. Oil fired central heating and WiFi throughout.
