Full description

An attractive character detached cottage occupying a stunning location on the edge of a favoured village with outstanding southerly views over the Vale of Taunton Deane.
West Monkton 0.5 miles, Taunton 4 miles

Boome Cottage probably dates back to the late 18th Century and apparently was originally a pair of farm workers cottages which have been completely remodelled and made into one property in more recent times. The property has been in the same ownership for over 30 years and in that time has been substantially improved and also extended to provide a particularly good sized family kitchen/breakfast room as well as an adjoining sun room. The property is well presented throughout and retains several of the original character features. Two good sized reception rooms are present on the ground floor approached from a central hall way with shower and toilet adjoining whilst three bedrooms are afforded at first floor level, the master bedroom having a particularly good sized en suite bathroom with large shower in addition. The property benefits from modern double glazing as well as gas fired central heating. Boome Cottage is set within particularly well tended and attractive gardens that include good off road parking as well as a double garage and there are several sitting out areas to take full advantage of the superb views that the property enjoys. Please note that there is no onward chain with this sale.

The property is situated on the eastern outskirts of the highly favoured village of West Monkton which lies within the foot hills of the Quantock range of hills which are designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty and where many beautiful walks may be enjoyed. The village offers a popular pub/restaurant as well as an attractive parish church and local schooling both primary and secondary is available at Monkton Heathfield. The county town of Taunton is about 4 miles away where a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities will be found and where a main line rail link to London and M5 interchange are also available. Boome Cottage occupies a slightly elevated situation on the outskirts of the village and enjoys beautiful southerly aspects over adjoining open farm land with the Blackdown Hills in the far distance and far reaching views over the whole of the Taunton Vale. The situation is extremely special.

The property is approached over a tarmacadam entrance drive with parking for several vehicles, this area is enclosed with dwarf stone walling with flower beds adjoining together with an array of flowering trees and shrubs. A double garage adjoins. The gardens lie generally to the immediate front of the Cottage which is south facing and has a slightly elevated level to adjoining farm land. The gardens have been particularly well maintained including generous areas of lawn with well stocked flower and shrub borders adjoining together with a patio area and a lower small fruit tree section. The gardens are contained within well enclosed partly walled boundaries and have the benefit of far reaching views over the Vale of Taunton Deane to the Blackdown Hills in the distance. They form a well tended and delightful setting for this character property.
