A delightful period property offering spacious four bedroom living accommodation with generous gardens and grounds on the edge of this much sought after village. No onward chain

This charming property is believed to date back from 400 years or so and is of local stone elevations under a pitched tiled roof. The property, although well maintained, would now benefit from some updating but has the potential to create a fabulous family home. The accommodation is conveniently arranged over two floors and briefly comprises an entrance hall, with stairs rising to the first floor, a large living room with an open fireplace and French doors out to a conservatory which enjoy views of the gardens. Also off the hall is a snug/study, cloakroom and a separate dining room. The kitchen spans the full width of the house and has a range of fitted base units with rolled top work surfaces and a larder in the corner. A door off leads to a front conservatory, currently used as a boot room, concluding the downstairs accommodation.

Upstairs are four double bedrooms with master en-suite and a family bathroom.

Outside is ample parking to the rear, a double garage, stone barn with alternative use potential and large well manicured gardens enjoying westerly views over open countryside. In all the property extends to approximately 0.7 of an acre.

The property is situated at the centre of the highly favoured village of Thurloxton, which lies at the foot of the Quantock range of Hills, which are designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is regarded as one of the premier settlements within the Taunton Vale District and the Quantock Hills affording numerous opportunities for country pursuits, with a wide array of both foot and bridle paths. Taunton is readily accessible by the nearby A38 where a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities can be found. The M5 motorway can be joined at Junction 24 North Petherton or Junction 25 at Taunton. International airports can be found at both Exeter and Bristol, both within approximately a one hour drive.

The property is approached off a quiet country lane, over a gravel driveway which leads to a car parking and turning area to the rear of the house. Here access can be gained to the attached double garage (5.6m x 5.9m) and stone barn (4m x 6m) which could suit a number of alternative uses, subject to the necessary consents. Adjoining the parking area is a mature copse, home to a variety of different species of native trees, creating a haven for wildlife. The primary gardens lie to the South and are predominantly lawned, with a sun terrace to the rear of the barn ideal for alfresco dining and summer entertaining contained within well established borders. A timber built studio can also be found enjoying far reaching views and a line of beds divide a lower garden which is again lawned and interspersed with a number of mature trees, shrubs and bushes.

The gardens enjoy a great deal of privacy and seclusion and are a real selling point of the property which can only be fully appreciated when viewed.
