The Fruit Garden is situated on the edge of the village of Burrowbridge, 10 miles east of the County Town of Taunton. The property itself backs on to the River Tone and is in the most stunning setting. Burrowbridge has a village pub, The King Alfred Inn. The larger village of Stoke St Gregory is approximately 3 miles away with a thriving community, a primary school, shop, post office, pub and church. Burrowbridge itself is well known in the area for its Landmark Burrow Mump, an ancient church on a distinctive hill and it lies 4 miles from the historic town of Langport, which provides a good range of day to day amenities. The County Town provides a comprehensive range of shopping, scholastic and recreational facilities and also enjoys excellent communication links with fast rail services to London Paddington and the M5 interchange at junction 25. Road communications are further enhanced by easy access to the A303.


The Fruit Garden is a charming period house situated in an enviable, private location accessed via a long private drive. The property is approached via the parking and turning area with a path leading to the covered porch and further to the entrance hall. The entrance hall has a tiled floor and is currently used as a study area. There is a room providing coat and boot space as well as access to the under-stair cupboard. From the hall, a door leads into the kitchen/dining room, a wonderful dual aspect room comprising two distinct areas of the kitchen and dining/sitting area. The kitchen area contains an extensive range of eye and low-level kitchen units and an inset Belfast sink with mixer tap. There is an oil-fired Rayburn and the kitchen is fitted with an electric cooker and hob and a dishwasher. Double doors lead from the kitchen area into the front garden and patio. The kitchen links to the dining area where there is ample space for family entertaining. From the kitchen a door leads into the utility room with a range of units, plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer and a door to outside. There is access to the cloakroom with a low-level W.C and wash basin. From the kitchen, double doors lead into the snug, which is a fine room with a window to the rear and recesses to either side of the chimney breast. From the main hall there is access to a large sitting room which is a wonderful triple aspect room and has a feature fireplace with inset wood burner on slate hearth. Exposed wood floors.

On the first floor the property has four large double bedrooms as well as a walkthrough bedroom currently used as a dressing room to the master bedroom. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room with shower cubicle, low level W.C and wash hand basin. Bedroom two has a fitted wardrobe with views to Burrow Mump. There is then a family bathroom with panelled bath, wash hand basin and low-level W.C. Bedroom three is a lovely and light dual aspect room with views to the front and side and bedroom four has fitted wardrobes and views to the rear.


From the village road, the private driveway leads to a gravelled parking and turning area which gives access to the barn. The barn/machinery store is fully enclosed with a large door leading to a storage and workshop area that is constructed of concrete block under box profile roof and immediately adjoining the building is a covered carport. There are three further storage buildings used as garaging, log stores and workshop and these have double doors that open onto the gardens. Immediately joining these is three former cattery buildings which are currently used to house chickens. A five-bar gate then opens up to a large paddock which is laid to lawn and is interspersed with mature trees. There is an area of raised beds and five apple trees. More formal gardens lie to the east of the house, with a wonderful weeping willow tree adjoining one of the boundaries. There are lovely areas for sitting out and enjoying the weather. Overall the gardens are an extremely attractive part of the property and help to create a wonderfully private and peaceful location.


From the lights in the centre of Burrowbridge turn right off the A361 into Stathe Road, turning right into Stanmoor Road after a short distance. After a short distance the driveway to The Fruit Garden can be seen on the right-hand side.
