An attractive period residence offering six bedroom living accommodation, a self-contained two bedroom annexe, garage and large well kept gardens.

This attractive period property appears to date back to around 1925 and is of red brick elevations with attractive yellow brick quoin detailing under a double pitched roof. The property enjoys tall ceiling heights and sash windows flooding the inside with natural light. The accommodation in brief comprises an entrance vestibule which in turn leads to an impressive entrance hall with original tiled flooring and stair case rising to the first floor. From here access can be gained to all principal reception rooms, namely a dual aspect sitting room with open fire containing a log burning stove, a living room which also benefits from a log burner together with a bay window enjoying views of the gardens. Adjacent is a dining room, currently used as a study and at the rear of the house is a modern well equipped kitchen/breakfast room. A cloakroom, pantry and utility room concludes the ground floor accommodation. Upstairs are six double bedrooms, a shower room and generous family bathroom. Due to the number of bedrooms it may well be possible to create more en-suites if required.

The Annexe

In addition to the main house is an attached annex comprising an entrance hall, kitchen and a living room with a bay window. Upstairs are two bedrooms and a family bathroom. The annex is perfect for additional income, Airbnb or dependant relative, alternatively it could be incorporated into the main house if required.

The property is situated in Curload, within the village of Stoke St Gregory, which is on the edge of the Somerset Levels—an area famous for its Withy beds and basket making and designated as an environmentally sensitive area. Close by is the village of North Curry and between them, North Curry and Stoke St Gregory provide a range of local facilities including post offices, primary schools, general stores, health centre and churches. A variety of pubs can be found in the area, serving excellent food including the renowned Firehouse at Curry Rivel and more locally, The King Alfred Inn. A more comprehensive range of amenities are available in the county town of Taunton about ten miles away including excellent state and independent schools, theatre, County Cricket Ground and railway station with frequent services to London Paddington. The M5 motorway is extremely accessible with Junction 25 only 7.5 miles from the property. There are numerous, all-year round attractions with the nearby Willows and Wetland Centre and a number of National Trust properties. Excellent walking can be enjoyed along the droves and the many footpaths in the area.

The property is approached off a country lane over a driveway which is owned by the property but is shared with the neighbour and then leads to a gateway where there is a private gravel drive, flanked on either side by lawned gardens with well-established hedgerow borders, interspersed with a number of mature trees, shrubs and bushes. The driveway leads to a car parking and turning area and gives access to a detached double garage with workshop (9.3m x 6.75m). A picket fence divides the side gardens where there is an area of gravel and lawn contained within 6ft panel fencing, home to a number of mature shrubs and bushes.
