A beautifully presented semi-detached period cottage together with a detached annexe, stables and 2.46 acres of pastureland.

This beautiful cottage is believed to date back some 250 years or so and is of Blue Lias stone elevations under a pitched tiled roof. The property has been tastefully renovated during the current vendors ownership to provide an excellent sized family home. The accommodation comprises a principal reception room with inglenook fireplace, adjoining modern kitchen/dining room, a utility room, garden room, WC and a downstairs bedroom/study. On the first floor are four bedrooms with the master enjoying an en-suite and modern family bathroom. Within the garden is a detached stone built annexe ideal for accommodating an elderly relative or to provide additional income complete with its own private garden area. In addition to the living accommodation is a substantial barn containing stables and 2.6 acres of pastureland, ideal for those with equestrian, agricultural or other amenity interests at heart. The real selling point of this property is its position with fabulous far reaching views towards the vale of Taunton.

The house is virtually south facing occupying a slightly elevated position above the village of Stoke St Gregory, the centre of the village lies about half a mile away. Some excellent views are afforded particularly from the field over the surrounding area and beyond to the Quantock and Blackdown Hills in the distance. The village itself has a good village hall, primary school and excellent public house. The rural centre of North Curry lies about 2 miles away where similar facilities also include a health centre. The county town of Taunton is about 8 miles away to the south west where a wide range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities can be found including access to the M5 motorway (J25). International airports can be found at both Bristol and Exeter.

The property is approached off Dark Lane through a set of timber gates to a large gravelled parking and turning area. To the side are the front gardens which are predominantly lawned and contained within attractive stone walling with herbaceous borders. To the left is a Blue Lias stone built single storey annexe with its own private gardens to the side. The primary gardens lie to the rear of the main house and are slightly elevated with an attractive Blue Lias stone retaining wall. Within are largely lawned gardens with herbaceous borders and a sizeable timber summerhouse enjoying a southerly aspect.
