The place:
Butleigh Wootton: hamlet (stone cottages) in unspoilt countryside on the Somerset Levels, 1½ miles from Butleigh (pub, PO/shop, church). Glastonbury (small town, famous tor), 3 miles; Street (shopping, outdoor swimming pool), 2; Wells (cathedral city), 10; Wookey Hole Caves, 11; the north Somerset coast, 20; Bath (historic city), about 30. Several Nat. Trust houses/gardens nearby. Excellent walking, cycling, golf and horse riding on the Somerset Levels.

The property:


... Wootton House is a fine country house on the edge of Butleigh Wootton, overlooked by the monument of Admiral Sir Samuel Hood high on Polden Ridge. The house has evolved since its construction in the 18th cent. for the Hood family. It sits on a 1,000 acre estate comprising gardens, woods, lake, parkland and working farms. Large mature garden (all yours) with croquet lawn, hard tennis court, climbing frames, slides and swings.

The house is comfortable, elegant, delightful - if a little frayed around the edges - with modern facilities. Downstairs: large front hall (wood floors, oak panelling) and equally large back hall (Steinway grand piano and upright piano) with French windows to paved terrace and the garden (table/chairs). Off the front hall, with views across parkland to the monument, step down to drawing room (open fire) with original silk wallpaper and French windows to the front garden, and a sitting room (marble open fireplace, fine paintings, TV/DVD, PlayStation 2).

At the back, overlooking the garden, large formal dining room (long oak dining table, enormous Jacobean-style ornamental fireplace); large kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, terrazzo flooring, 4-door Aga plus electric cooker/induction hob, farmhouse table/chairs, TV, door to garden) and pantry (washing machine, tumble drier, larder fridge, sink). Partially adjoining the kitchen, but completely private from the house, is a tenant-occupied cottage. From the back hall, passage to French windows to the rear garden, a downstairs bathroom (suite) and step up to the Abbot’s Room (an enormous games room with table tennis, children's snooker table, darts, TV, Hammond organ).

Upstairs: oak stairs from the front hall up to a landing (original William Morris wallpaper, library area with window seats), off which are eight bedrooms:  

double with en suite bathroom (suite)

double with hand-carved mahogany four-poster (5’) with beautiful drapes

double with four-poster (6’)
