Lime Kiln Cottage probably dates back around 250 years and is of rendered and colour washed elevations set under clay Roman tiled roofs. The property has been the subject of considerable modernisation and improvement by the current owners within the past few years and now affords very well appointed and presented family living accommodation with good quality fixtures and fittings throughout as well as tasteful decor. The accommodation is light and spacious and features in particular a well appointed large family kitchen/breakfast room which forms an excellent 'hub' to the house. This room is well appointed with a handmade Neptune kitchen and directly feeds into a veranda and the gardens beyond. The main reception room is equally of an excellent size and once more has direct access to the gardens. Four bedrooms (each of a double size) are provided on the first floor, two of which have en suite shower facilities and an excellent family bathroom is also present. The property is set within mature and well tended good sized gardens that form a charming setting. Lime Kiln Cottage represents

one of the best of its type to have come to the market with the Agents in recent months and is thoroughly recommended to the most discerning of Buyers.

The property lies approximately 4 miles to the south of the County Town of Taunton and approximately 1 mile from the favoured village of Stoke St Mary. It is surrounded largely with open farmland interspersed with small woods and copses - there are no near neighbours. Local facilities include primary schooling at Thurlbear (1 mile) and various local pubs whilst Taunton is readily accessible where a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities will be found including a main line rail link to London Paddington and M5 interchange (junction 25). There are a wide variety of local footpaths which provide easy access into the surrounding and attractive countryside.

The property is approached via a pair of timber gates which lead to a large paviour hard standing and turning area with parking for several vehicles. Gardens surround the property which are largely laid to informal areas of lawn that incorporate a number of well planted mature herbaceous borders together with an ornamental pond and stream feature. The gardens are well enclosed within established primarily hedged boundaries and incorporate several sitting out areas and a veranda immediately adjoins the rear of the property. A side access lane gives access to a small rear yard area where a timber garden shed is present. The gardens have been well tended and form a delightful setting. Also present is a large garage/barn measuring 5.7m x 4.8m.
