Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A beautiful Grade II listed three bedroom detached cottage situated within a picturesque hamlet with gardens and land circa 7 acres.

Tolleys House is a charming detached period cottage understood to date back to the 15th Century and built of stone rendered elevations under a deep thatch roof. It is Grade II Listed as being of architectural and historic importance. The accommodation is well proportioned with many of the rooms enjoying a dual aspect. Character features, typical of its age and type, include 2 inglenook fireplaces (one with former bread oven), window seats, exposed beams and stonework.

A thatched storm porch with wooden front door opens straight into an impressive dining room which is dominated by a large inglenook fireplace and many exposed beams and uprights. A staircase leads to the first floor accommodation while doors lead off in three different aspects. The main sitting room is tastefully decorated is particularly light and airy, and offers a pleasant room to relax whilst in front of an open fireplace. A further staircase provides access to the first floor. At the opposite end of the cottage is a dual aspect snug which adjoins the kitchen and dining room. The kitchen is well fitted with a good range of units and features an oil fired Rayburn as well as space for an electric oven and flagstone flooring. The practical boiler room provides a good storage space as well as housing an oil fired boiler and plumbing for a washing machine. A rear lobby leads out onto the courtyard and a downstairs cloakroom is situated off of the dining room.

Both staircases lead up to a first floor landing which is split level in nature. The two main double bedrooms are of a very impressive size while the third bedroom offers a respectable guest bedroom. The bathroom is fitted with a traditional white suite and has a separate WC. The beam work to the first floor is of particular note and really adds to the overall character of the cottage.

The property is situated in the small hamlet of Lydmarsh, approached off the A30 via a small lane leading to the property and which terminates as a no through road, therefore there is no passing traffic other than the neighbours. The area consists of delightful open countryside, some three miles east of the Somerset town of Chard and about a mile from Cricket St Thomas leisure centre. This offers recreational amenities including footpaths and bridleways in addition to the quiet country lanes in the general area which are ideal for walking or riding. Nearby towns include Chard, Crewkerne and Axminster, the latter being on a mainline rail route to London Waterloo.
