A handsome, Grade II listed Georgian village house, with part walled gardens of about 1 acre and an excellent range of outbuildings, including a self-contained cottage, home office and gym, occupying a convenient location in this popular Quantock Hills village

The property

This handsome and particularly spacious Georgian village house, occupies an elevated setting within large and beautifully maintained gardens and is offered with an excellent range of outbuildings providing ancillary accommodation, ideal for the multi-generational family or for those wishing to work from home. Listed Grade II as being of historic and architectural interest, it is one of the finest houses in the village and is believed to date from the mid-sixteenth century with later additions including the impressive Georgian facade. In more recent years the property has been sympathetically improved and now provides a very comfortable and well appointed family home.

The accommodation

The accommodation is beautifully presented and includes a particularly spacious drawing room of wonderful Georgian proportions and with a large bay window providing views over the garden and the village to open countryside beyond. A period fireplace with wood burning stove is flanked by book cases. The sitting room reflects the origins of this centuries' old property with an impressive inglenook fireplace with inset herringbone fireback and wood burning stove.  Shuttered sash windows flood this room with a good deal of light.  The Dining room/study is another well proportioned room with an attractive double aspect, fireplace with wood burning stove and built in book case/shelving.  The kitchen/breakfast room also enjoys a pleasant triple aspect and French doors open to the rear courtyard.  There are numerous hand painted cupboards with granite work tops and appliances include a Rangemaster stove, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.  Also on the ground floor can be found a guest cloakroom with an excellent range of built in cupboards, a utility room with plumbing for washing machine and a former creamery with original brick floor, ideal for conversion to a boot room and with access to a wine cellar with original wine bins.

First floor

The principal bedroom with period fireplace enjoys a wonderful double aspect and glorious views over the village and to the Bristol Channel.

The gardens have been equally well maintained and provide a wonderful setting for the house.  The main lawn is part bounded by mature shrubs and box hedging. An oak pergola with climbing plants leads to a lower garden with swimming pool and mature trees.  A further area of garden includes shrub borders and lawn.  A gated driveway provides parking and gives access to an excellent range of outbuildings situated to the rear of the house.
