Full description


This fabulous country property is brimming with character and has space and versatility in abundance. Originally a stone built two bedroom cottage, Folley Cottage is now a spacious family residence in the much sought after village of Catcott.

The property has been cleverly updated over the years to take full advantage of the mostly south facing rear garden. The main reception room, snug, conservatory and the annexe accommodation all face south, benefiting from natural sunlight and the complete privacy that comes from overlooking the rear garden and paddock.

Not only is this a very private plot, but there are stunning views from all aspects, this being one of the main reasons the current vendors decided on this exact position which is slightly elevated from the rest of the village. From the front of the property there is a particularly pleasant view across to Cheddar and the Mendip Hills.

Further ground floor accommodation includes the entrance porch, entrance hall, large kitchen/diner with pantry, ground floor cloakroom, utility room with access to the garage and study.

To the first floor the galleried landing is a spacious and usable space, providing access to bedroom three and four. The lower level of this split level landing area then provides access to the bathroom and two further bedrooms. There is a large en suite to the main bedroom which is a light and airy room due to windows on the side and rear aspects as well as its vaulted ceiling.

The annexe accommodation consists of a large lounge/diner with kitchenette, spacious bedroom with built in wardrobes and a shower room. The lounge/diner and bedroom both have tri-fold doors to the south facing rear aspect and onto the separate patio area created especially for the annexe.

Outside there is a large area of parking laid to stone chippings that leads to the garage and then proceeds past the garage to the large area that sits to the side of the house. This additional area provides access to the stable yard, paddock and field that the current vendors have been renting for approximately 20 years. There is also access to the patio area to the annexe and main garden area.

Please note: There is the possibility of an equestrian facility being available within close proximity to the property, by means of separate negotiation.
The equestrian facility provides 4 outdoor wooden stables with feed room and 6 internal stables within a large steel framed barn. Within the larger barn there is room for hay/straw storage, a wash bay with electric shower and a built in secure tack room.

The arena is 20m x 40m and laid to a sand/rubber surface, laid to a bark surface is the round pen.

All of this sits within approximately 2.5 acres.
