A delightful character cottage set within unspoilt West Somerset countryside with good sized gardens and a studio.

Higher Cottage has over the years been cleverly and sympathetically extended yet retains a great deal of character including beams, inglenook fireplace and flagstone floor. A good sized entrance hall leads into the property and has doors into the sitting room which has a large inglenook style fireplace with wood burning stove and exposed beams and ceiling timbers. There is a study found off the sitting room which also has a door leading into a good sized dining room. The kitchen has an Aga with French doors out to the garden and a further door into the boot room / utility and a cloakroom. The bedrooms are all of good size, the principal bedroom having an en-suite shower room. In addition to the main house, the oak framed studio provides additional living accommodation.

Higher Cottage is found off a quiet country lane and has hard standing providing off-road parking which gives access to a detached double garage with a lean to cart shed and open fronted shelter. A gate leads into the stable building which has two lose boxes (12 x 12), tack room having lighting and electric sockets and automatic water feeder. The gardens at Higher Cottage wrap around the property with large areas of lawn and well-stocked shrub beds and of particular note is the terrace found to the front of the cottage, enjoying all available sunshine and provides excellent alfresco entertaining space. There is also a kitchen garden.

An attractive contemporary designed oak framed studio provides a good sized living area with the windows overlooking the gardens, a wood burning stove, high ceilings and staircase up to mezzanine area. There is also a shower room with shower, low level WC and a wash basin.
