A beautiful detached three bedroom cottage occupying a slightly elevated position with far reaching views, prime for renovation and enlargement (STP) No onward chain.

This delightful period cottage has been occupied by the same family for four generations and was the first property the Duchy of Cornwall ever sold. The current vendors great grandfather was a stone mason for The Duchy and tenant for many years before acquiring the property in the 1960s. Constructed of blue lias stone elevations under a pitched tiled roof the accommodation currently provides three bedrooms, bathroom, two reception rooms, kitchen, utility and conservatory. The property is set within good sized gardens and enjoys far reaching views of the surrounding countryside. The property is now in need of complete renovation to

bring it up to todays standards and offers scope for enlargement if you so required subject to any necessary planning consents.

The property lies on the edge of this much sought after village of Curry Mallet lying about 8 miles from the County Town of Taunton where a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities can be found. The village itself affords a pub, shop, post office, village hall, parish church and primary school. Much of the surrounding area is owned by The Duchy of Cornwall and there are a host of local footpaths that provide easy access into this attractive part of Somerset. The village is very peaceful with little or no through traffic but easy accessibility is afforded to the A378 Taunton to Langport Road as well as the A358 Taunton to Ilminster Road which in turn leads to the A303 and M5 which provides good access across southern England. The property enjoys a south facing aspect and the gardens back onto Duchy owned open farmland.

The property adjoins a quiet country lane with little passing traffic where there is an attractive blue lias stone wall with sand stone capping and a pedestrian gate which leads to the front door. The front gardens are predominantly lawned and to the side is vehicular access over a hardened driveway which leads to a garden shed. The primary gardens lie to the west of the house which are lawned with mature well established herbaceous borders and fruit trees and to the south far reaching views can be enjoyed over open countryside.

Agents Note

1. The yard next door has outline planning consent for the creation of three dwellings.

2. The front wall of the property has suffered some movement due to a blocked drain which has been rectified. There is also some bowing of this wall but a schedule of works is available to show how this can be rectified if required.

3. It is believed that the current drainage crosses the yard next door and connects to the sewer in the main road. It may therefore be necessary for a new connection to be made direct from the garden to the main sewer.
