Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This former Rectory is believed to date back to the sixteenth century and was extensively elaborated in the late nineteenth and mid twentieth century. Enjoying a long and varied history, once being a small family run hotel, the property now offers surprisingly spacious and elegantly proportioned rooms, including particularly good reception space with a formal drawing room and a dining room at the front of the house. The bedrooms are all of a good size, each with their own character, and offer an ideal opportunity to run a Bed & Breakfast business. It is the gardens that are so special, being beautifully stocked and timbered, and in the main facing due south enjoying the glorious, far reaching views towards Luccombe and Exmoor National Park.

A private drive leads into Crossacres and opens up to provide Ample Parking, and leads to the substantial and attractively designed Double Garage building, which includes parking for two vehicles and a useful recessed Workshop / Garden Store. Also incorporated within this building is a Log Store and a Gazebo with a terrace looking out onto the garden. A lawned garden is found to the front of the house and on a lower level there is a well shaded terrace. The main lawned gardens are surrounded by a variety of beautiful, well-established trees including oak, mulberry, silver birch, acer, a tulip tree, maple and magnolia with an under canopy of azaleas and rhododendrons. To the rear of the property there is a Small Orchard area with a variety of both eating and cooking apples and pears and plums and an aluminium framed Greenhouse. There is also a Coal Shed and another Store housing the boiler.

Services: Mains water, electricity and drainage. Oil fired central heating.

Tax Band: G
On the A39 travelling from Minehead towards Porlock, after about 3 miles look out for a sign on the right to Selworthy, continue up the hill towards the village and just before the village church, turn right where you will see the sign into Crossacres. Proceed up and park beside the garage.
