  • Bedrooms: 3
A very well presented character three bedroom semi-detached cottage set within large and attractive gardens in a delightful position within the Quantock Hills.

The property probably dates back to mid Victorian times and is of attractive stone elevations with brick detailing under slated roofs. The property has been the subject of considerable modernization and improvement in recent years and is offered in good decorative order throughout benefitting from modern fixtures and fittings, double glazing and oil fired central heating. The accommodation offers a particularly good sized principle Reception Room which in turn leads through to a two part Kitchen well fitted with a good range of pine units and in turn through to a Dining/Breakfast room. A separate utility room is an added bonus. Three Bedrooms are arranged on two upper floors together with a re-fitted good sized bathroom. The cottage is set within particularly good sized gardens which have been landscaped to provide all year round interest and a double garage is afforded at the far end together with off road parking. This is an attractive opportunity and is a particularly well situated character Cottage.

Poachers Cottage lies within the Southern folds of the Quantock Hills about 2 miles from the village of Monkton Heathfield and some 5 miles from the County Town of Taunton. The Quantock Hills are designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty where a host of foot and bridle paths are available. There are a number of Primary Schools in easy striking distance of the Cottage and Heathfield Secondary School is only a couple of miles away. There are several nearby pubs at West Monkton and Monkton Heathfield whilst Taunton provides a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities including a main line city rail link to London and M5 interchange. Although Poachers Cottage enjoys a tucked away location, it is not in any way remote as there are a scattering of other properties within immediate area and both Taunton and arterial roads are within 10 to 15 minutes.

Poachers Cottage is situated in generous gardens, which are approached to the front onto a block paved driveway providing off road parking. To the side of the property is a pedestrian access gate and oil storage tank. To the rear the gardens have been beautifully cultivated and landscaped to create an interesting garden with lawned areas and a network of paths giving access to all areas. There is a private terrace that adjoins the dining room, providing a delightful outside

dining/sitting area. A pathway through the garden leads to herbaceous beds, fish pond, and wisteria covered pergola and kitchen garden. The garden incorporates a summer house and two timber sheds. At the far end of the garden is a detached timber Double Garage measuring 18' x 18' with twin double doors, power and light, security light and courtesy door with off road parking to the front.
