Alstone Hall is an attractive smallholding situated on the outskirts of the market town of Highbridge. The property comprises a detached 4 bedroom bungalow which requires modernisation throughout together with a range of agricultural buildings and timber stable blocks with land set in a whole of 4.58 acres (1.85 ha) or thereabouts, with further land available (by separate negotiation).

Alstone Hall formerly formed part of Alstone Court Farm in the 1930s. The farm was originally sold in 1978 and Alstone Hall and the surrounding land was retained. Around 1959 planning consent was granted in order to convert the property from a war-time radio station to a residential use. The late Arthur Duckett then lived there with his family for the remainder of his life. Arthur Duckett was a well-known local figure and in the 1960s he operated a haulage business with approximately 7 lorries and operated this business from the site up until the late 1960s. Throughout this period, Arthur used to keep cattle and sheep on the holding and predominantly used Alstone Hall as an agricultural holding.

Throughout the 1970s the farming enterprise continued and during the 1980s Arthur commenced a contracting business with plant and machinery hire, together with operating large Russian lorries from the site. This use began to reduce towards the end of the 1980s and in 1992 Arthur established Alstone Wildlife Park and opened the premises to the public. Arthur continued to operate the Wildlife Park right through until his death in 2010. The scale of the Wildlife Park reduced and a small scale animal feeds business together with some liveries from the stables was operated up until approximately 2015.

Due to a change in the family's circumstances the property is now being offered for sale to the market and offers prospective purchasers a rare opportunity to acquire a property in need of modernisation together with land and buildings which have been previously used for a commercial and agricultural use.
