Quintessential Grade II Listed detached period cottage of immense character with gardens and paddock of about three quarters of an acre in this unspoilt hamlet.

Southview Cottage is undoubtedly the quintessential 'chocolate box' property with whitewashed stone elevations under a partly thatched roof.

Believed to date from the mid 17th Century, Southview Cottage boasts many character features expected of a property of this nature including exposed ceiling beams, large inglenook fireplace, winding stairs and a plank and muntin screen.

Whilst Listed Grade II by virtue of its age and character there are modern day refinements including oil fired heating, shaker-style kitchen and modern bathroom fittings. The spacious ground floor accommodation also offers potential to create a self -contained annexe.

Outside there are extensive gardens to the rear with split-level terraces, lawned sections with summerhouse and adjoining grass paddock with various trees. In all the property extends to about three quarters of an acre.

Southview Cottage fronts a little used country lane just off the centre of the tranquil, Conservation Area hamlet of Knole which boasts numerous picturesque period houses and cottages set amongst beautiful countryside.

The nearby village of Long Sutton (1.5 miles) has a variety of amenities including post office/store, primary school, Devonshire Arms Hotel, Lime Kiln inn and 18 hole golf course. Long Sutton also has an attractive village green overlooked by the ancient parish church and also a village hall with adjoining sports field and tennis courts.

The larger centres of Somerton (3.5 miles), Martock (4.5 miles) and Langport (5 miles) are readily accessible and offer good shopping, educational and recreational facilities.

The administrative town of Yeovil is within 10 miles and the County Town of Taunton with its excellent road and rail links is about half an hour's drive.

The A303 (linking with the M3) is within a 10 minute drive.

The property is approached through a 5-bar timber gate over a brick paved driveway leading to a spacious parking area flanked with raised flower borders.

The pretty front garden comprises area of lawn with flower borders, well with thatched canopy and wrought-iron pedestrian gate and path leading to the front door.

Adjacent to the rear of the cottage there is extensive spilt-level terracing with ornamental pond, flower beds and stone retaining walls.

To one side there is a further enclosed area laid to gravel and side pedestrian door. From the terracing, steps lead up to lawned areas with second fish pond and the octagonal shaped Summerhouse. Further steps lead up to the grass Paddock with various trees and hedged boundaries. In all the property extends to about 3/4 acre.
