Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
An intriguing country property which we understands dates in parts to the 11th Century and enjoys

good sized accommodation together with a number of outbuildings, a two storey barn together with

mature south facing gardens and a paddock, which in all extends to about 1.8 acres.

Tyrrells comes to the Market for the first time in over 33 years and offers buyers the opportunity of acquiring an impressive country property together with attractive gardens, grounds and outbuildings. The property we believe dates back in parts to the 11th Century and there is a mention of Tyrrells farm in the Domesday Book.

The property boasts an abundance of character and features throughout including two inglenook fire places, an array of exposed beams and timbers, flagstone flooring and a number of ornate recesses. The accommodation flows well and in its current form provides an entrance lobby, WC/utility, kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room, dining room and study. Whilst at the first floor level 4 bedrooms are found (the master benefitting from en-suite facilities, and the second 'guest' bedroom also with a walk in dressing area, together with a Jack and Jill style bathroom). There are a number of outbuildings/stores which currently provide brilliant storage but would also seem to offer the possibility (subject to any planning consents that may be needed) of conversions to enlarge the current living space and to create ancillary accommodation or a holiday let.

Outside the gardens for the property are a real feature enjoying a southerly aspect and have been well tended by the current owners. There are a number of sitting out areas, herbaceous borders, mature trees and shrubs and also a nature pond. There is direct access from the rear of the gardens to the adjoining land. The land also benefits from separate vehicular access. The property comes to the market with no onward chain and early viewings are advised by the sole agents.

Whitnell is a small hamlet just outside the villahe of Fiddington. Fiddington is a small and picturesque village close to the Quantock Hills, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and also to the North Somerset Coastline. The nearest facilities of note are in the nearby villages of Cannington and Nether Stowey where an excellent range of day to day facilities can be found. The commercial town of Bridgwater offers all needs together with two junctions of the M5 Motorway and also a mainline train station. The county town of Taunton is also within reach to the south.

The property is approached over a concrete driveway and there is off-road parking for a number of cars, with further parking available at the side of the property. Externally the property provides a number of store rooms, which would seem to have possibilities for conversion to further living space. There is a 2 storey barn which would seem to have the possibilities for conversion to ancillary accommodation or perhaps holiday letting, subject to any planning consent that might be needed.
