FULL DESCRIPTION As you drive West from Bridgwater along the A39 towards Minehead you are surrounded by beautiful countryside and you will find the adjoining villages of Nether Stowey and Over Stowey which are nestled on the slopes of the Quantocks in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Castle Hill begins off Castle Street in the heart of Nether Stowey and continues on into Over Stowey. Castle Meadow is situated on the brow of the hill being one of the first properties in Over Stowey.

Believed to date back to the 1940's it was built as two houses but has always been used as one dwelling.

This substantial detached home is being sold for the first time in over 40 years and presents a unique opportunity for someone to remodel and renovate to their own design.

Castle Meadow is situated on a generous size plot with superb South facing panoramic views to the rear.

The flexible accommodation itself briefly comprises two entrance hallways, three reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room, WC, utility room with WC, store room and sun lounge to the ground floor. Upstairs there are five bedrooms, bathroom, box room and study and all the rooms to the rear aspect enjoy fantastic views. Overall the property is just over 200 square metres and could be extended further subject to the necessary permissions and consents.

Outside there is multiple off road parking on own carriage driveway to the front leading to the single garage with workshop and storage.

The South facing rear garden retains a good degree of privacy and enjoys those wonderful views.

The village of Nether Stowey benefits from a number of amenities including a primary school, church, public houses, medical centre and a range of shops and cafés. Castle Meadow is approximately 9 miles away from the emerging town of Bridgwater situated in the heart of the borough of Sedgemoor and within 11 miles of Taunton and 38 miles of Bristol. The town of Bridgwater is famed for its annual carnival and is a thriving place with many new jobs being created in recent years.
