The stone-built farmhouse with mullion windows dates from at least the 17th century and has not been on the market since the 1850s, when it belonged to the local manor. It has been occupied by the same family since 1905.
A long drive leads to a five-barred gate, opening into a farmyard surrounded by the main house and annexe/cottage on one side, with an L-Shaped range of traditional stone-built farm buildings and open-fronted large modern barn completing the square. A gateway leads into a second farmyard and large open-fronted agricultural barn with access to the fields behind the house. The hallway runs the width of the house, to the garden door and porch. The reception rooms lead off either side of the hall. To the left after the Old Dairy with its flagstones is the parlour, which faces south over the garden. Turning right off the hall, a step down takes one into the dual aspect living room, with flagstone floor and a fireplace containing a woodburning stove. A large mullion window overlooks the garden and lets in plenty of light while a door in the panelling conceals the staircase to the first floor. The modern kitchen/diner opens off the living room. The diner overlooks the garden, and the kitchen provides fitted wall and base units with pull-out storage and a granite worktop.
On the first floor five good sized bedrooms are accessed off a spacious double landing. The main bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and there is also a family bathroom.
Attached on the west side of the house is a one-bedroom annexe/cottage with accommodation across two floors and its own garden area and parking.
The level south-facing gardens of the main house sweep around two sides and lead out onto the paddocks which surround the property, with lovely rural views in all directions.
This is a very private property, with huge potential to develop a smallholding/agricultural business or convert farm buildings to residential or other business use, subject to the necessary planning consents.

Tennis Corner Farm sits in a wonderful rural position in the hamlet of Standerwick off the A36 south of Bath, which is twenty-five minutes away. Local pubs and the award-winning Whiterow Farm Shop offer first-class produce as well as restaurants and children’s play areas, with Mole Valley Farmers and the Standerwick Centre minutes away. The nearby village of Beckington has a GP surgery and pharmacy, cafe, sports clubs, local events, village school and Springmead private day nursery and prep school.
The historic market town of Frome is a short drive away and offers a good choice of shopping outlets, a leisure centre, cafés, pubs, schools, theatre, cinema and events venues. Private schools are located in Warminster, Cranmore, Beckington, Wells, Bruton, Bath, Glastonbury and Street.
Fast trains leave Westbury for London Paddington and Warminster for London Waterloo. With the A36 only a few minutes from the farm, road links are excellent. Salisbury, Bath and Bristol are within commuting distance and the A303, M3, M4 & M5 are all easily accessible. Golf, riding, fishing, tennis, shooting and beautiful open countryside are all on the doorstep and Babington House (country house hotel and private members' club) is at nearby Mells.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
