A beautiful farmhouse, Listed Grade II, well restored and occupying a tranquil setting within a highly convenient location on the rural fringes of Portishead.

Moor Farm, Sheepway in parts dates back to the 16th century with additions added in the 1800's. Traditionally arranged over two floors, rendered elevations under a slate tiled roof with coped raised verges and cornice; ashlar stacks with arms, date and crested tops. Built in a 17th century revival style with three bays; end buttresses with off-sets; casement crittall windows with moulded stone mullions and surrounds. Originally a tenant farm, part of the Ashton Court Estate, it is one of the most historically important farmhouses locally.

Found beyond a gated entrance the house occupies a southerly aspect enjoying lovely outlooks over the gardens and the countryside beyond. The program of works has been carried out by the present owners with great attention to detail and provides an extremely comfortable character home with a pleasing blend of period details and modern refinement.

The original front door leads into a vestibule then into a well-proportioned reception room that resides on the front elevation of the property. The open-plan family room and dining room has an abundance of natural light streams through the period stone mullion windows complete with window seats, picture rails, exposed wood flooring, beautiful wood burning stove and an open-grate fireplace on the opposite side of the room. In addition, sitting room and study reside on the western corner of the residence offering two further spacious reception rooms.

The heart of this remarkable home is the kitchen/breakfast room, thoughtfully redesigned by the current owner to maximize natural light with a vaulted ceiling and space that accommodates an informal dining area with garden views. The kitchen itself is divided into two parts by the island unit providing ample space for food preparation and storage beneath. A range cooker is recessed within the chimney breast which takes centre stage. Adjacent to the kitchen, discreetly tucked away, you'll find a spacious utility room with a comprehensive range of shaker style units, listed Aga, walk-in pantry, plenty of space for washers and dryers. A beautiful parqueted floored hallway provides access to the cloakroom, principle reception rooms and a turned staircase that rises up to the light-filled first floor landing.

The first floor has a central, galleried landing that mirrors the hall below, with the stairwell well-lit by natural light. Arranged around two sides of the landing are five double bedrooms (2 en-suites), and a five-piece family bathroom serving the other bedrooms.

Outside, the house is approached via electric gates over a shared but owned driveway (with two other barn conversion properties to the rear of the property) that sweeps around to the rear of the property to a substantial gravelled parking area and multi-car garage/barn. A beautiful westerly facing walled kitchen garden resides along the rear elevation of the property complete with patio seating areas and paths that separate a variety of cut flower beds providing yet another private place to relax whilst entertaining family and friends. The property also has various outbuildings, including two stables and a wood store.

The meticulously maintained gardens to the front complement the house, with mature trees and borders ensuring privacy. There are ample spaces for outdoor entertaining, children's play areas, and vast expanse of lawn enjoying the southerly aspect.

Barn Conversion & Multi Car Garage

Located to the rear of the property is an attractive grade II listed barn that has been sympathetically restored to provide multi-car garaging and additional living/storage space above. This accommodation lends itself to either business premises, a holiday let or to cater for a dependant relative.


Moor Farm is perfectly located on the fringes of the thriving coastal town of Portishead which offers many facilities with everything from Waitrose to Costa Coffee. Sheepway is also a popular country area for walks, one of which is located just outside the property's boundaries. It offers excellent access to the M5 motorway network junction 19. Sheepway still provides ease of access for the family purchaser to nearby schools and shopping facilities, for the city professional looking to be out of town, the ease of access to the motorway and Central Bristol will be a big plus.
