Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A large semi-detached country house with good family living accommodation with the benefit of large gardens, stable block, all with the benefit of stunning rural views.
A further paddock of just under 6 acres is available to buyers by seperate negotiation if they so wish.

Appletree cottage probably dates back about 250 years and is built of rendered and colour washed elevations under clay roman tiled roofs. The property would appear to have been extended in the recent years and has been modernised and updated to now provide excellent and spacious four bedroomed family living accommodation featuring a delightful kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke shaker style kitchen with granite work surfaces and wonderful far reaching views over open countryside. There is also a particularly good sized main reception room, and adjoining family room as well as an excellent dining hall. The property stands within large gardens which have been professionally landscaped to form some lovely sitting out areas and have benefits of a good range of stables in the lower area with separate vehicular access.
There is also the option to acquire a nearby field just under 6 acres which is ideal for those who wish to keep horses or ponies.

The property offers a stunning slightly elevated situation on the outskirts of the hamlet of Knapp, one mile from the highly favoured village of North Curry which provides a good range of local amenities including primary school, modern health centre, village stores and post office, excellent parish church and good recreational facilities. The county town of Taunton is readily accessible only some 6 miles away and the M5 can be joined at junction 25 about 4 miles distant. The house and gardens enjoy a superb outlook over surrounding countryside particularly to the North and East with the Mendip hills and Glastonbury Tor clearly visible in the distance. The situation is very peaceful yet would certainly not be considered remote.

The property is approached via a pair of hardwood electrically operated gate which leads to a large paved hard standing and turning area with an adjoining double garage with an electrically operated roller shutter door, light and power provided and with utility room for plumbing for washing machine. The front gardens are well enclosed within established hedged boundaries and provide a raised lawned area with well stocked boarders. The rear gardens have been professionally designed with generous areas of paved terrace which incorporate a small ornamental pond and again have well stocked herbaceous boarders. An attractive flight of steps leads to a lower garden area which is dedicated to lawn at present and is an ideal children's play area. At this lower level (where separate vehicular access is afforded) is a separate stable block providing 3 stables with good overhang and concrete fore court with a timber garden shed close by.

A short distance from the house is a separate paddock extending to just under 6 acres which is ideal for horses or ponies - This land is being sold seperately
