An attractive period cottage offering generous characterful living accommodation, private lawned gardens and allocated parking now in need of updating. No onward chain

This delightful period cottage is believed to date back to the 17th century and is of rendered stone elevations under a pitched tile roof. At present the accommodation provides 2 well-proportioned bedrooms on the first floor, one of them with an en-suite. There is also a family bathroom. Also on this floor is an unconverted store room which (STP) could create a good sized third bedroom. On the ground floor is a welcoming dining room with inglenook fireplace containing a log burning stove, an opening leads to a living room which enjoys a dual aspect and open fireplace and to the rear is a conservatory enjoying views of the rear gardens. Adjoining the conservatory is a small study and from the dining room a hallway leads to a WC and through to the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is well equipped and enjoys a Range Master cooker. A door off leads to a large utility/boot room. The gardens to the property lie to the rear and enjoy a great deal of privacy and seclusion and include areas of lawn, patio, well established boarders, chicken run and driveway providing parking for several vehicles. Beyond the garden fence is a further parking area with permission for a detached double garage adding further to the property's appeal. The real selling point of this property is the outside space which can only be fully appreciated when viewed.

Stonecroft is situated in Lime Street which is a small street leading off from the centre of the village of Stogursey. The village is dominated by a fine Church and has a number of facilities including primary school, local shops, Inn's and lies within a mile or two of the coast line and the Bristol Channel. To the South West are the Quantock Hills designated an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. These hills offer opportunities for walking, riding and other rural pursuits.

Multiple shopping and scholastic facilities are available in the town of Bridgwater (9 miles) and the County Town of Taunton can be reached over the hills. Access to the M5 motorway can be gained at Bridgwater J23 or J24, or J25 at Taunton.

The property is approached directly on Lime Street and has a further vehicular access to the rear. Immediately adjoining the house is a crazy paved patio contained within attractive blue lyes stone walling, complete with hot tub. A set of sleeper steps leads up to a gravelled garden area contained within well-established herbaceous boarders. A further set of steps leads up to a predominately lawned garden, also with a number of mature herbaceous boarders. To the rear of the garden is parking for several vehicles and a small timber garden shed and chicken run. (Please note the large timber shed is not included in the sale of the freehold). At the far end of the gardens is a set of timber gates which lead out to the rear onto the Council maintained highway and where further parking is available. Here there is also planning in place which is still valid for the erection of a detached double garage. The gardens are a particular selling point to the property and are deceptively large and can only be fully appreciated when viewed.
