Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Stunning three/four bedroom detached, Grade II Listed period home set within quarter of acre of private and south facing gardens. Garage and driveway.

This unique Grade II Listed character home is believed to date back to the early Seventeenth Century and was purchased by our vendor 26 years ago, needing a full programme of restoration which were promptly attended to. The property is greatly enhanced throughout by an array of character features to include inglenook and open fireplaces with fitted log burning stoves, window seating, and original woodwork to include some impressive internal doors and exposed beams.

The property provides for both generous and versatile accommodation over the two floors, with the ground floor providing for a living room (with log burning stove), separate dining room (with inglenook fireplace), a snug/bedroom 4, contemporary fitted kitchen (with space for a Range style oven), separate utility, garden room (with French doors to the terrace), a classic white suite bathroom, and an additional WC.

To the first floor are three double bedrooms, a four piece family bathroom and an additional shower room. Staircases to the first floor can be found at each end of the property providing for the option of master bedroom suite to be utilized on one half should it so be desired.

The property is warmed by oil fired central heating and is beautifully presented throughout.

Combe Florey is widely regarded as one of the prettiest villages in the Taunton Vale District and lies in a tucked away location just off the Taunton to Minehead road. There are excellent local facilities as Bishops Lydeard including primary schooling, mini supermarket and health centre while a pub is within walking distance of the property (The Farmer Arms). The Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are within two miles where a wide array of both foot and bridal ways can be found. Taunton the county town is an easy drive some six miles to the south east where wide representation by most national retailers will be found together with excellent scholastic facilities. Taunton enjoys good communication links with the rest of the UK with fast rail link to London Paddington and M5 interchange.

This property sits perfectly within this most beautiful Hamlet of Combe Florey set back from its boundary to the roadside. To the side of the property is gravelled driveway providing off road parking for approximately three vehicles, ahead of the large garage, which measures approximately 7.38m x 5.27m and benefits from light, power and a pitched roof. A side gate provides access from the driveway into the rear garden.

The rear garden is most attractively landscaped with a large patio terrace immediately outside of the property and steps then rise to the large lawned area, greatly enhanced by an array of mature trees, shrubs and flower bed borders. Access from the garden can be gained into the garage via a personnel door. The gardens provide for an extremely high degree of privacy and enjoy a southerly aspect. In addition to this stunning landscaped garden, the vendors have in more recent years purchased an additional strip of land serving as an orchard with a number of apple trees, together with an area of kitchen garden (raised beds).
