This attractive period cottage has well presented and versatile accommodation with scope to extend (subject to the necessary consents). The accommodation in brief comprises a pretty entrance porch with a front door leading to a generous hall with open tread staircase rising to the first floor. From here access the lounge/dining room with open fire and views across the garden. Beyond this is a study with outlook to the rear, a modern fitted kitchen with integral Neff appliances including a double oven, hob with extractor fan over, fitted microwave above double oven, and washer/dryer. Beyond the kitchen is a dining room/sun room, perfect for breakfast or morning coffee and also housing the oil fired boiler as well as having a range of neatly fitted storage. The bathroom is also located on the ground floor and was refitted at the same time as the kitchen and consists of a modern white suite with low level WC, wash hand basin set into surrounding vanity unit, panelled bath and separate shower. On the first floor are three bedrooms, two with fitted cupboards and all with views of the garden, across the road to the countryside beyond.


The property is accessed via a five bar gate onto a tarmac drive and parking area. A timber garage/workshop lies to the side of the driveway and measures 21'7 x 15'5 and has power and light connected. The gardens surround the property on three sides and offer a wide range of lawned areas, flower and shrub beds, mature shrubs and trees, ornamental pond as well as raised beds within a fenced kitchen garden area.

A mature beech hedge along the southern boundary offers great shelter for the “winged” visitors that clearly find the gardens a haven. There is an outside tap and PIR security lighting to the driveway, rear entrance and front porch.


The property is situated within a private countryside setting set back from the road with open views. It is within the heart of the Blackdown Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty with excellent access to footpaths, bridleways and country lanes within the area. Local facilities are available in the nearby village of Churchinford, approximately 2.5 miles, including a well run community village shop and post office and doctors surgery as well as a public house. Even closer to hand is the Holman Clavel Inn within Culmhead itself and certainly within walking distance. The excellent road links within the area provide good access to Taunton approximately 5 miles, Wellington approximately 6 miles, as well as Ilminster and Chard, the A303 and M5 junctions at both Wellington and Taunton.

This charming property therefore offers the unusual combination of an unspoilt country environment together with excellent access to both town and road networks and we encourage an early inspection.
