Situation - The Old Dairy occupies a delightful situation close to the centre of the small picturesque village of Churchinford. Churchinford is within the beautiful Blackdown Hills, which are designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and has a thriving community centred upon the community village shop/Post Office, village hall, Doctors surgery, cafe, public house and schools. Churchinford is between the larger centres of Taunton, Wellington and Honiton, which all have extensive shopping facilities and amenities. Taunton, the County Town, has excellent schools in both the state and independent sectors, the County Cricket Ground, a theatre and convenient transport links, with a mainline railway station and the M5 motorway junction. The M5 motorway can also be joined at Wellington and the A303 is also easily accessible. For those with walking and riding interests The Old Dairy is in a superb location to be able to take advantage of the miles of footpaths and bridleways, which run through the beautiful surrounding countryside.

Description - The Old Dairy is a substantial detached former barn, which has been skilfully and sympathetically converted to create a particularly spacious and well-proportioned family home, built primarily of flint elevations under a pitched tiled roof. The property has an attractive appearance, with the accommodation arranged over two floors and a wonderful blend of character, exposed timber work and beautiful rural views. The Old Dairy is believed to have been part of Ford Farm and the dairy store, where the daily collections of milk churns took place, still stands within the grounds of the property and is another wonderful feature.

Accommodation - To the front of The Old Dairy is a covered lean to entrance with a partially glazed front door, which opens into the generous entrance hall. The entrance hall has a wooden floor, stairs rising to the first floor landing, a couple of steps leading up to the downstairs WC, with a tiled floor and wash hand basin, and there is also a door from the hall into the sitting room. The sitting room is a sizeable room with a dual aspect to the front and rear, and a delightful fireplace with a stone surround, mantel, hearth and an inset gas fire. To the rear of the property is the garden room, which has two exposed flint walls, a wealth of glazing and two external doors, which open onto the rear garden. There is also a service hatch, which goes through to the kitchen and allows plenty of light from the rear of the property to flow through. The kitchen is another spacious room with a floor to ceiling window to the front and a well-stocked kitchen comprising a range of fitted wall and base units with granite worktops, and integrated appliances to include an electric four ring hob (there is a gas supply nearby should a buyer wish to change), inset sink, integrated dishwasher and housing for an integrated fridge freezer. The kitchen has plenty of space for a dining table and access to both the larder and utility room. The tiled floor continues from the kitchen into the utility room, where there is space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, further wall and base units, an airing cupboard housing the hot water cylinder, external door into the rear garden and a door into the back of the double garage. The garage has two sets of double doors to the front, power and lighting, door to the rear garden and boiler room off it to one side. Also on the ground floor is a further reception room, which is currently used as a downstairs bedroom but would also make an excellent study, and enjoys a dual aspect and eaves storage.

On the first floor, the landing runs along the rear elevation and provides access to the four upstairs bedrooms and family bathroom. The master bedroom is situated at the far end of the landing and enjoys an outlook towards the village through a large window and three Veluxs. The bedroom is enhanced by some wonderful en-suite facilities comprising a double ended roll top claw foot bath with mixer tap and shower attachment over, large walk-in shower cubicle, WC, wash hand basin, heated towel rail, travertine wall and base tiles and a laundry shoot from the en-suite, which drops down into the utility room below. Bedrooms two to four also enjoy a similar outlook to the front and are all of a good size. The family bathroom is fitted with a modern suite comprising a bath with mixer tap and shower attachment over, WC, pedestal wash hand basin and tiled floor.

Outside - The Old Dairy is approached off of a quiet village lane through a wooden five bar gate onto a tarmac drive, with brick edges, that sweeps around to the parking and turning area, which also provides access to the garages. The driveway dissects the front garden, which is split into two sections, both of which are predominately laid to lawn and enclosed by a combination of stone and rendered walling. By the footpath to the front door there is an outbuilding, known as the dairy store, which as previously mentioned, used to house the milk churns before collection and provides excellent outside storage. The LPG gas tank is hidden in the corner of the front garden behind some wood panelled fencing and there is also some external lighting and delightful trees, which include a fig, plum, cherry and eucalyptus. There is access around the side of the property to the rear garden, which is again predominately laid to lawn and split into two tiers. Under the rear elevation of the property there is also a patio area and access back onto the road should it be required.

Services - Mains water, electricity and drainage (there is a pump which links the property to the mains, which is maintained by Wessex Water), LPG gas fired central heating.

Directions - From the centre of Taunton, proceed along Corporation Street and over two mini roundabouts before turning left at the next T junction into the middle lane signposted to Trull. Follow this road passing through the villages of Trull, Staplehay and Blagdon Hill, and continue up a steep hill into The Blackdown Hills. Continue for approximately 3 miles until reaching the village of Churchinford, before turning left and then right onto Moor Lane, where the property can be found shortly on the left hand side.
