Situation - Occupying a delightful private setting this property sits within Exmoor National Park and enjoys an elevated rural position between Dunster and Timberscombe. Set within 19 acres of predominantly pastureland, it enjoys sweeping far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside and has direct access onto bridleways providing miles of fantastic riding country. Dunster 1.5 miles away is a beautiful medieval village set within Exmoor National Park and boasts its own Castle and a Medieval Yarn Market.
The County Town of Taunton is approximately 23 miles away and the Cathedral City of Exeter lies approximately 40 miles south of the property. Both provide good recreational and retail facilities as well as access to the M5, fast rail links and flights from Exeter Airport.
The beautiful Exmoor countryside, the North Somerset coastline and the Quantock Hills are all within a short driving distance, providing fantastic opportunities for riding, walking and water sports.

Description - With stone elevations under a tiled roof, the house was predominantly re-built and sympathetically renovated in the late 1980s with a later extension in 2014. It benefits from double glazing and an Ecowarmth electric heating system. The single storey annexe is in a courtyard setting adjacent to the main house and is suitable for a variety of uses subject to the planning conditions. The excellent location with stables, barns and paddocks, make the property ideal for someone with an interest in equestrian pursuits. Alternatively it will appeal to those wishing for privacy yet in close proximity to the facilities of Dunster.
