Full description

A character detached former coach house offering extremely well presented accommodation and occupying an attractive edge of village situation with outstanding southerly views.

The Old Coach House would appear to date originally from the mid Victorian era and was originally, as the name implies, the coach house to a former rectory. The property was converted in the early 1980's at which time it was also sympathetically extended and is built of attractive local Blue Lias stone elevations under tiled roofs. The present owners have been in occupation some 10 years and during that time have maintained the property to the highest of standards. It is offered in excellent decorative order throughout and with the benefit of good quality UPVC double glazing and oil fired central heating. The focal point of the house is undoubtedly the principal reception area which is extremely spacious and attractive from which access leads off to the kitchen and breakfast areas, the main bedroom being arranged at first floor level with en-suite facilities and with direct access to a lovely balcony overlooking the gardens and with superb far reaching views to the south. The property stands within well tended attractive gardens with the benefit of good onsite parking and a double garage with workshop or home office.

The Old Coach House is an excellent example of property of its type and is highly recommended to the most discerning of buyers.

The Old Coach House is available with no onward chain and early posession can be given if desired.

The Old Coach house is situated on the outskirts of the village of Fivehead which lies some 5 miles from the market town of Langport where a good range of day to day facilities is at hand including a Tesco supermarket, and some 9 miles from the county town of Taunton where a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities will be found. The local village has an attractive shop where milk, bread and newspapers can be obtained together with a fine parish church. Primary schooling is also available locally. The surrounding area is one of unchanging farmland and there are numerous local footpaths that provide easy access into this attractive West Country area. The M5 may be joined at Taunton (junction 25) about 7 miles distant whilst the A303 is not far away to the south either.
