Full description

Watermill Cottage enjoys a delightful and peaceful setting in the wooded vale of Hawkcombe alongside the river in one of the most popular villages within the Exmoor National Park and within a short walk of the local shops and amenities.

The property was carefully restored and converted around ten years ago to provide a stylish and comfortable home which cleverly combines modern day comforts with a period facade. Attached on one side to the original watermill which has also been converted, the Cottage has pleasing stone elevations under a tiled roof, small pane timber windows, is equipped with oil fired central heating and is being sold inclusive of fitted carpeting.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors and in brief comprises; entrance hall off which is a ground floor part tiled bathroom and fitted with a three piece white suite with shower over bath and tiled flooring, two double bedrooms one of which has an en-suite shower room. A staircase from the hall leads to the First Floor open plan lounge/dining room enjoying pleasant woodland views fitted with wood burner and having a door leading out onto a patio at the rear. Also on the first floor there is a third bedroom and kitchen fitted with a range of base and wall units with roll edged working surfaces, one and a half bowl stainless steel sink unit with mixer tap, integrated electric hob and oven, extractor hood, plumbing for dishwasher and washing machine.

Attached to the property is a large garage and workshop which did have planning permission for a one bedroomed apartment which has now lapsed.

An undoubted feature of this unique cottage are the established gardens which fall alongside the picturesque river setting. There is a gravelled and timber decked path leading from the front of the property part shared with the Water Mill giving access to the private gardens. The path leads through sloping well stocked shrub gardens to a paved terrace seating area alongside the river with views towards nearby woodland. Also behind the property accessed off of the lounge is a secluded paved patio which adjoins open woodland at the rear with a pathway leading around the rear of the property and down the side to the garage.

Porlock is one of the most popular Exmoor villages given its excellent thriving community together with local shops including chemist, supermarket and butchers together with a Church and village hall, primary school, three inns and restaurants. The clubs include bowls, cricket and tennis with golf at Minehead. The quaint harbour and hamlet of Porlock Weir is within approximately two miles, Minehead is approximately six miles and it is approximately twenty six miles from the county town of Taunton which has mainline rail connections and access to the motorway network. For those who enjoy exploring the countryside there are superb walks literally on the doorstep and the Exmoor, Quantock and Brendon Hills and the coast are all close at hand.

The property is currently run as a holiday let and the majority of the contents are available subject to separate negotiations.
