This elegant Grade II listed residence occupies a peaceful rural setting in the picturesque and unspoilt hamlet of Ham, on the banks of the River Tone.

It is a short drive from the villages of Creech St Michael and North Curry, while Taunton is around five miles away to the west.

The double-fronted property, named Ham Wharf House, has been classically styled throughout and retains many of its original period features such as bay windows, open fireplaces and exposed beams.

Beyond the entrance hallway, there are three reception rooms, including the sitting room which features an inglenook fireplace, a bay window and arched double doors that lead to the rear patio. From the sitting room, there is a lobby that leads to the ground floor bedroom which has a vaulted beamed ceiling, French doors to the garden and an ensuite shower room.

The kitchen has a traditional look and is fitted with a range of shaker-style units, some integrated appliances and there is a handy central island with a breakfast bar. Also on this floor is a dining room with a double aspect and an open fireplace recess, a garden room with a vaulted ceiling and a conservatory that overlooks the front garden.

On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and a family bathroom. One of the bedrooms has an ensuite WC and washbasin on one side and an electric shower on the other.

Outside, the garden is beautifully presented with areas of lawn, deep-planted herbaceous borders, a pond and several specimen trees and shrubs. The property benefits from its charming riverside setting and enjoys views over a leat, where there is a pontoon giving access for a dinghy, and which leads on to the millstream and then the river.

The property comes with a gravelled driveway providing ample parking space and access to the single garage and a detached workshop.
