A striking period property offering spacious five bedroom living accommodation in the centre of this much sought after village *** NO ONWARD CHAIN ***

This striking Georgian residence is believed to have been constructed in the 1800s of rendered stone elevations under a pitch slated roof and was formally a village shop where the original front still remains. As you would expect, a property of this stature is Grade ll listed and boasts many character features such as open fireplaces, large sash windows, high ceilings amongst others. In brief the accommodation comprises an entrance hall with principle reception room to either side, a set of steps lead down to a large sitting room with glazed reading area and a door off leads to a large kitchen/breakfast room enjoying a dual aspect with access to a rear porch and WC. In addition to the ground floor is a superb cellar, ideal for entertaining or as a child's playroom. One the first floor is a large landing where a family bathroom and bedrooms one and two can be found with bedroom two enjoying an en-suite. The second set of stairs leads to the front of the house which has previously been let out as a two bedroom apartment but at present hosts three further bedrooms, kitchen are and bathroom. Outside the property has off street parking to the side, a double garage and to the rear is a well maintained garden enjoying a great deal of privacy and views of the village and open countryside in the distance. The property is ideally suited to those with a dependant relative, family or possible B&B use.

The property is beautifully situated in the centre of the village of Stogumber occupying a slightly elevated situation with views over the village and open countryside beyond. The general locality is widely regarded, offering some of the most picturesque countryside within the County and the West Somerset coastline and Exmoor are readily to hand. The village itself provides a popular primary school, good village pub, post office and general stores whilst the County Town of Taunton is readily accessible some 14 miles away where a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities can be found including three noted public schools. The M5 may be joined at Taunton which also offers a fast rail link to London Paddington. Both Bristol and Exeter airports are also within easy striking distance. With Exmoor and the Quantock Hills within easy distance, this offers fantastic walking opportunities with a superb network of bridle ways and foot paths.

The front of the property adjoins a Public Highway and to the side is a shared private driveway of brick paving with a five bar timber gate. Parking for one vehicle is available to the side along with a detached double garage and the potential exists to expand this area subject to any necessary consents by encroaching into the garden. The primary gardens lie to the rear and enjoy a great deal of privacy and seclusion and will wrap around the property on two sides. Adjoining the living room is a large patio area ideal for alfresco dining and summer entertaining and enclosed within well manicured mature borders. The remainder of the garden is predominantly laid to lawn with a small terrace area with well established borders containing a number of mature trees shrubs and bushes.
