Situation - The hamlet of Chipley is between the villages of Langford Budville and Milverton in a beautiful part of Somerset with rolling countryside. Whilst the setting is rural, the area is by no means isolated and benefits from easy access to communication links and surrounding districts. Both Langford Budville and Milverton maintain thriving communities and include churches, primary schools, public houses and village shop.
Wellington is within 3 miles and offers supermarkets, health centre and a range of independent shops, whilst the county town of Taunton offers a greater range of shops, amenities and sixth form colleges. There is an excellent range of schools in Wiveliscombe, Wellington and Taunton, both in the Independent and State sectors.
The M5 is easily accessible at J26 (Wellington) and J25 (Taunton), providing great links to Cornwall to the south and Bristol and London to the north and east. There are regular rail services to London Paddington from Taunton and Tiverton Parkway, and Bristol and Exeter International Airports provide a number of domestic and international flights.
Description - Formerly part of the Chipley Park estate, it is understood the Grade II Listed house was built in the early 17th century and subsequently during the late 19th century a barn to the north-east was connected and converted into further accommodation. The property was purchased by the current family in 1964 and although many improvements have been made during this time, there is still plenty of possibility for a new owner to continue to make the property their own or divide into ancillary accommodation for extended family, subject to the necessary consents. The house looks out onto its surrounding gardens, including a number of outbuildings and a meadow and woodland on the opposite side of the road, in all extending to 1.4 acres.
Accommodation - The house offers the perfect space for family living and entertaining with its impressive L shaped passageway connecting the reception rooms and living space. There are many period features, including mullioned windows, exposed ashlar walls, moulded wooden doorways and exposed chamfered beams.
The remarkable medieval porch and intrinsic front door lead to the passageway, which includes areas of exposed flagstones and brick floors.
The reception rooms are all particularly light and enjoy separate aspects. The drawing room and sitting room have large exposed stone inglenook fireplaces and heavy bressumer beams over, with an open fire in the drawing room and a large wood burning stove in the sitting room.
There is a large country kitchen with an AGA, extensive range of units, exposed flagstone floor and compartment ceiling. The service rooms include a former dairy which makes a fantastic utility room and a separate cloakroom. There are three separate staircases, however, one is currently not in use.
On the first floor there are 6 bedrooms. Bedroom 3 is accessed through bedroom 4 and benefits from an en-suite bathroom and a dressing room. The family bathroom has recently been renewed and benefits from a separate bath and separate double shower.
Gardens And Grounds - The property is approached from the road with a tarmac drive and gravelled parking area beside the house. Beyond the parking area, to the south west, is a stone retaining wall with steps leading to an area of garden, which is mainly laid to lawn with a beech hedge boundary.
Along the boundary of the front garden is a low stone wall and a young beech hedge with stone pillars and wrought iron pedestrian gate. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a large tulip tree.
Separate from the house, on the opposite side of the road, is a large area of amenity land bounded by a stream.
There are a number of outbuildings, including two stores adjoining the house, garage and store with cobbled floor, fully insulated timber shed and stone barn with fireplace.
