Main Residence
Entering into a spacious Reception Hall at first floor level, doors open to Bedrooms1 and 2, a family bathroom, a staircase leads down to the ground floor accommodation and a further door opens to the:

Sitting/Dining Room: A light and airy room with wood burning stove set on a granite hearth within a white brick fireplace and large sliding patio doors to the Southern elevation leading onto an elevated timber sun terrace. A door from here leads to the:

Kitchen: An elegant and functional space fitted with bespoke 'Mark Wilkinson', units incorporating cupboards and drawers, wicker baskets and integrated appliances to include fridge, freezer and dishwasher. An electric 'touch', hob is set into the granite work surface with electric oven beneath and extractor fan over. Carved draining grooves run into the two inset sinks with mixer tap, set below the South facing window where the ever-changing moorland views will make washing up a thoroughly enjoyable experience. This dual aspect room benefits from good levels of natural light, a further door gives access to the side and the adjoining cottage.

From the Reception Hall:

The Master Bedroom is of generous size with a South facing window enjoying open Exmoor views, built-in wardrobes and a door to the:

En-Suite Shower Room: A striking marble tiled suite with glazed walk-in shower, wall mounted WC and wash basin.

Bedroom 2 is another generous double bedroom with window to the South. A door from here gives access into the adjoining:

Family Bathroom: With Jack and Jill doors to both Bedroom 2 and the Reception Hall, fitted with a corner shower cubicle and electric shower over, WC and wash basin, fitted with a range of built-in cupboards/storage.

From the Reception Hall, steps lead down to the lower ground floor hall with doors to the Snug/Bedroom 3, the Boiler Room, the Shower Room and the Wine Store. A further door opens to the rear garden.

The Snug/Bedroom 3 is a flexible space currently used as a winter sitting room and occasional bedroom, with a window to the Southerly elevation and a free standing log burning stove. This versatile room could also suit as a games room or an annexe/teenagers flat.

Located at the end of the hallway is the Shower Room, fitted with glazed cubicle, WC and wash basin.

The Boiler Room houses a free standing boiler which serves the domestic hot water and heating.

Adjacent to this is a unique Wine Store which is accessed with steps up and subject to restricted head height. The property has been built into the rock face and in this section the rock has been left exposed, creating the perfect year round temperature to store those special bottles.

The Cottage
Situated to the Western side of the main residence, this unique conversion of what we believe was a former barn, now provides stunning ancillary accommodation. Benefitting from modernisation in recent years, the property now offers light and airy accommodation throughout.

From the front door is a small hallway with door into the main accommodation and separate door giving access to a useful:

Utility Room, which has been fitted with a work surface and sink. Space and plumbing for a washing machine.

As you enter the main living accommodation, you are greeted with a beautiful open plan ground floor, sympathetically decorated throughout with exposed floor boards. The Kitchen has been fitted with cottage style base and cupboard units provided and installed by Minehead Kitchens. A 'U' shape layout provides ample work surface with 1 ½ bowl sink and inset 4 ring electric hob with oven below and concealed extractor over.

This is open to the Dining Area with large South facing windows enjoying views to Withypool Common. The stairs return to the first floor whilst a large opening leads through to the:

Sitting Room: With French doors leading out on to a private level garden area utilised by the cottage only, and additional South facing windows.

To the first floor there is a generous landing area with doors leading to the two bedrooms and bathroom.

Bedroom 1 is to the Eastern elevation with an attractive sloped ceiling, enjoying beautiful views through two double glazed velux windows.

Bedroom 2 is again a generous double with a matching sloped ceiling, velux window and further double glazed window to the Western elevation.

Situated between the two bedrooms is the well
fitted Bathroom with panelled bath and electric shower over, pedestal wash basin and WC. Again, a velux window provides ample natural light.

Outbuildings

Double Garage
Measuring 25' x 19'3, this generous sized garage houses an inspection pit, has power and light and also contains the oil tank which fuels the central heating and hot water.

Greenhouse
Running adjacent to the double garage, this large greenhouse is an excellent space for the green fingered amongst us.

Gardens and Grounds
The formal gardens have been professionally tiered in the past and now have an abundance of well-stocked mature planting. A gravelled pathway gives access immediately behind both properties, whilst a sloping pathway meanders down through the well-stocked beds to the lower fields.

The cottage has the benefit of a private level garden to the Western side, laid to lawn with raised beds and enclosed seating areas.

The main grounds are all to the South and West of the properties. Accessed via a sloping lawned path, the fields have been left to attract many forms of wildlife over the mixed ground and riverside environments; the land is topped approximately twice yearly.

Mown pathways lead to the banks of the River Barle, the property benefits from single bank fishing along the boundary. A resident Kingfisher has been spotted on many occasions.

The current owners have actively created and encouraged a peaceful environment for bees, butterflies, dragonflies and many other wild Exmoor residents.
From the Dulverton office of Webbers Fine & Country, proceed in a Northerly direction over the moor towards Exford along the B3223. After crossing the cattle grid beyond Winsford Hill, take the next left signposted to Withypool and go down the hill into the village. After passing the Royal Oak pub on your right, proceed for c.100 metres before bearing right onto Newlands Lane which takes you above the village post office. Proceed to the end of this lane and Hallmead will be the last property found on the left hand side.
