About Property Manager
Built as a farmhouse in 1926, High House was attached to a much older building, an 18th century dairy, which remained in use until the 1960s, when it was refashioned as a garage to house an increasing number of motor cars. In the 1980s new owners wanted more space for their growing family and the garage was incorporated into the house providing a children's sitting-room, pantry, larder and laundry, with hayloft above and extra bedrooms. Lisa and Fred, who arrived in 2015, were keen to recapture the essence of the barn it once was, revealing ham stone pillars and old elm beams that lay beneath late 20th century modernity, adding windows and doors and a few 21st century comforts. Today the old pantry forms the kitchen of The Dairy, the laundry became a downstairs bedroom, whilst a staircase leads up to the old loft, now the master bedroom. Although farmland and outbuildings were sold for redevelopment many years ago, and today the owners have full-time jobs, a hint of rural lifestyle lingers; sheep graze the field and hens roam freely in the garden. At dawn the cockerel might be just too far away to wake you.
Easy to find, Tintinhull is just off the A303, the route to Devon and Cornwall. Here, you and your family and friends can find peace and tranquillity, while being a short distance from some of Dorset and Somerset’s pretty market towns.
A little further afield lie the attractions of Bath and Bristol, mysterious Stonehenge, the West Somerset Steam Railway and coastline to the north and south. The area also benefits from good train and coach links to London.
