This superb period cottage has been extended, modernised and improved in recent years by the current owner and now provides a well proportioned detached cottage with beautifully presented accommodation, with well manicured gardens and backing onto open fields. The accommodation in brief comprises a kitchen/dining room with kitchen area with built-in cupboards and worktops, slot-in Range cooker with hood over and an integral dishwasher, separate utility room with sink and worktop and plumbing for washing machine, sitting room running along the rear of the house with open “Jetmaster” fire and French windows opening onto the rear garden, rear hall with hardwood stable door to the garden and a cloakroom with low level WC and wash hand basin. On the first floor are three bedrooms and a beautifully fitted family bathroom with separate bath and shower, WC and wash hand basin. The accommodation is warmed by gas fired central heating.


To the side of the property is a garage measuring 16'7 x 9'7 with single up and over door, power and light connected and a wall mounted gas boiler. A gravelled driveway to the side provides off road parking with a pathway leading around to the side and rear access. To the immediate rear of the house is an attractively paved area running the width of the house providing excellent seating and entertaining space with a retaining stone wall leading up to a mainly lawned remainder with well tended flower and shrub borders and an attractive pergola covered path. A further area of garden to the side of the cottage provides enclosed kitchen garden space, as well as a detached greenhouse and garden shed. The rear garden enjoys views, as does the rear of the house, over the adjoining fields beyond the property.


The property is situated on the village edge whilst retaining excellent access to amenities within a short distance. The village provides an unusually wide range of services including a range of shops, post office, Tesco Express, pharmacy, restaurant and hotel, together with a public house, primary school and church. The M5 J24 lies approximately two miles distant and the county town of Taunton approximately seven miles.

The nearby Quantock Hills provide a large area of open space designated “an area of outstanding natural beauty” and runs all the way to the West Somerset coastline with a vast array of interconnecting foot and bridle paths providing excellent walking, riding and mountain biking country.
