Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
A country bungalow well suited as a 2nd home quietly situated within the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and enjoying far reaching country views.

Apple Tree Lodge is a charming detached country bungalow that for many years has been part of the adjoining property (Castlecross) where the owners currently live. It has been let out by them for some years for holiday purposes but they have now decided that it is surplus to their needs. Interested parties should note that there is a Planning Restriction in place which requires the buyers to have another main residence elsewhere although this property may be occupied for up to 11 months of the year. Renovated and modernised by the sellers in recent years, Appletree Lodge offers very well presented two bedroom living accommodation with a spacious and well lit living room/kitchen/dining room and both bedrooms have en suite shower facilities. The property benefits from double glazing, oil central heating and a good standard of fittings throughout and is set within attractive gardens with good off road parking.

The property occupies a slightly elevated situation which takes full advantage of long raging views over the surrounding area. The property is set within the scattered hamlet of Blackwater set within the Blackdown Hills which are designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The views over the local area are of stock rearing countryside interspersed with wide belts of deciduous woodland and there is little or no passing traffic. There are a wide range of footpaths within easy reach that provide easy access into the surrounding attractive countryside. Taunton the County Town lies about 7 miles to the north where a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities will be found together with M5 interchange and fast rail link to London Paddington. The A303 which provides good access across southern England may be joined about 2 miles to the south.

A five bar entrance gate gives access to an adjoining road to a gravelled hard standing and turning area with parking available for several vehicles. The gardens lie almost entirely to the front side of the property which have been well tended providing lawned sections which include several fruit trees together with a soft fruit cage whilst at a slightly higher level by the bungalow itself are further garden areas that have been used for vegetable production in recent times.
