This stunning Grade II listed thatched cottage occupies a position on the outskirts of the popular village of Carhampton, just over four miles away from Minehead.

It is believed that the four-bedroom property, named Court Cottage, has origins dating back to the 15th or early 16th century. The dwelling retains a significant proportion of its early fabric, including a plank and muntin screen in the living room and a partially smoke-blackened roof structure. Whilst retaining many of the original features, the house also offers many modern comforts.

On the ground floor, the living room has a dual aspect, a beamed ceiling, wood flooring, plank and a muntin screened wall and fireplace housing a wood-burning stove. There is a good-sized office, a breakfast room and a dining room with a feature fireplace. The kitchen has a modern contemporary look with a range of pale-coloured shaker-style units, white worksurfaces and several integrated appliances.

On the split first floor, there are four bedrooms, a family shower room and a beautifully appointed family bathroom.

Outside, the property sits within a plot backing onto open farmland. The front garden features a lawn, a variety of shrubs and a pleasant patio area. There is another secluded lawn garden incorporating mature fruit and ornamental trees.

At the front, the private driveway provides parking space for up to five vehicles and leads to a double garage.
