A COTTAGE styled property is on sale for £575,000 in Somerset. The cottage was built circa 1880 and has been loved and cared for by the current owners since 1984.

The entrance is through the front porch, with a door into the kitchen/breakfast room. The farmhouse style kitchen breakfast room is located in the centre of the house, and is finished with a range of base and wall mounted cupboards with tiled splash backs and worktops over, with inset sink, space for a cooker with hood above, washing machine, fridge freezer, tiled floor and door leading to the dining room.

From here, doors open to the conservatory, which offers a lovely outlook over the surrounding gardens.

The living room is situated on the far left hand side of the ground floor, and has lovely features including two windows to dual aspects, providing wonderful views over the adjacent countryside behind the cottage, a beautiful feature fireplace with a wood burning stove and exposed timber beams.

A door opens to the sitting room, which has its own feature fireplace. From the living room, stairs rise to the first floor and there is another external door to the front.

The current owners have described their time here as having “lived their dream”! They particularly love “the beautiful character features of this cottage.

It is like stepping back in time but with the conveniences of modern living” which has made the lifestyle of country living really enjoyable.

They are particularly proud of “the work we did to the grounds of the house over the past 40 years. Its been a lot of work but very much worth it”. They have also really enjoyed the balance of a rural lifestyle whilst being able to get back to Taunton in around 10 minutes by car.

Outside, the house is approached through a private gateway, down a long sweeping driveway, which open into a large gravelled turning and parking area with space for numerous vehicles and a large triple garage.
