A delightful period end of terrace cottage offering three bedroom living accommodation, garaging, off street parking and direct access to the Bridgwater and Taunton canal. NO ONWARD CHAIN

This delightful end of terrace cottage is believed to date back to the 19th century and has since been extended to provide spacious three bedroom living accommodation. Constructed of rendered stone elevations under a pitched tiled roof, the accommodation in brief comprises an entrance hall, a living room with log burning stove, dining room and a well equipped kitchen with oil fired rayburn. On the first floor are three bedrooms and modern family bathroom with bath and separate shower unit. Outside gardens lie to the side where there is a detached single garage, off street parking and dog kennels. The property is ideally suited to a young family or those with outdoor interests with direct walking out on the Taunton to Bridgwater Canal.

The property occupies a rural location on the outskirts of the small hamlet known as Outwood. The nearby village of East Lyng and North Curry are situated about 2 miles to the east and south east respectively, both affording thriving communities with the latter also providing a public house, general store, post office, café and health care centre. The County Town of Taunton offers an extensive range of commercial and retail amenities, benefitting from those of an important regional centre, with representations for most national stores and a wide range of leisure and sporting facilities. Excellent educational opportunities are available from both State and Private establishments, including three noted independent schools of Taunton including Kings and Queens Colleges. Access to the M5 motorway is available at Taunton (junction 25), as well as a main line rail link including a fast rail service to London Paddington. International airports are available at both Bristol and Exeter. The property is well positioned for access to the surrounding districts with the environmentally renowned Somerset levels to the east, whilst to the north and south lie the Quantock & Blackdown Hills, both designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offering an abundance of foot and bridle paths.

The property is approached off a quiet country lane where there is street parking for two vehicles immediately in front of the house and a small flower bed. A timber panelled fence contains the primary gardens where there is a garden path and small patio. The gardens are predominantly lawned with herbaceous borders and a number of mature trees, shrubs and bushes. To the side of the garage is a small wildlife pond and steps lead up to the Taunton to Bridgwater Canal. The garage is accessed via a separate gated entrance drive which provides off street parking for two/three vehicles and where a block built kennel and log store can be found.
