Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
A beautifully presented period cottage occupying a private village location with large well manicured gardens, clear span barn with alternative use potential (STP), ample parking and detached studio. In all about 0.7 acres. No onward chain.

This charming cottage is believed to date back to the 16th century in parts and boasts a wealth of character features. Constructed of rendered stone elevations under a pitched thatched roof the accommodation has been significantly improved over the years to create a fabulous village residence. In brief the accommodation comprises an entrance hall which leads to a fabulous kitchen/breakfast room with traditional solid wood units, island and a stunning inglenook fireplace containing a Heritage Range cooker. A door off the kitchen gives access to a walk-in larder and two openings have been created to flow into an oak framed garden room which is currently used as a dining area. Patio doors open out to a glazed oak veranda ideal for alfresco dining and summer entertaining. Also on the ground floor are two spacious reception rooms, both with open fireplaces, a conservatory, music room, utility and study which could also be used as a fourth bedroom if required. On the first floor are three double bedrooms with one bathroom and one large shower room both with modern suites.

The property is situated in the small hamlet of Curload which sits between the highly desirable villages of North Curry and Stoke St. Gregory. Stoke St. Gregory offers two local pubs, primary school, church and convenience stores whilst North Curry (2 miles) includes similar facilities including a modern health care centre and coffee shop. Access to Taunton is very easy via nearby roads where a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities will be found including three noted public schools. Taunton is a thriving market town and enjoys excellent communication links to the rest of the UK with mainline rail service to London Paddington and M5 interchange (J25) which lies about 7 miles away. Airport facilities can be found at both Exeter and Bristol, each within a 40 minute drive.

The property is approached over a gravelled driveway with a central turning circle, flanked on either side by well established herbaceous borders. The driveway continues past the house where there is parking for several vehicles and a detached clear span barn (13.6m x 9.19m) currently used as a car port, workshop and utility but could easily be converted to an annexe, home office, games room or other similar uses subject to the necessary consents. The primary gardens lie to the front and enjoy a south easterly aspect and are predominantly lawned with well manicured floral borders and a number of sun terraces, perfect for summer entertaining and alfresco dining. In the corner of the garden is a stone built studio with heating and double glazing with separate sun terrace which could also be used as a home office or guest accommodation if required. An evergreen hedge separates a further garden area complete with greenhouse, fruit cage, raised vegetable garden and tractor shed. In all the garden extends to 0.7 acres and can only be fully appreciated when viewed.
