Full description

REDUCED FOR QUICK SALE! IDEAL HOLIDAY HOME / HOLIDAY LET. Spacious character cottage offering 3 reception rooms, kitchen, utility, cloakroom, 3 double bedrooms and stylish bathroom. Set in the heart of Porlock - twice named best village in Somerset! The back courtyard leads onto Sparkhayes Lane, from where it is just a few minutes easy walk to the wonderful Porlock Marshes, a Mecca for South West Coast PathWalkers, Ramblers, Bird Watchers, Fishermen, Nature Lovers and Dog Walkers alike.

The property has been renovated to the highest standard whilst retaining all its original character and charm and has a handmade oak staircase, modern hardwood and original flagstone flooring, internal stained glass windows and attractive hand made timer and stained glass doors throughout.

Benefitting from central heating and double glazing the accommodation comprises, in brief, entrance hall, living room with woodburner, large dining room, newly fitted kitchen, utility, cloakroom and a fantastic sun room/conservatory with French doors into the courtyard. On the first floor the sense of space and quality finish continues to offer 3 double bedrooms, stylish modern bathroom and a small roof terrace with views over the rooftops and to Bossington Hill.

The current owner rents a parking space just a short distance from the house and we have been advised that this should be available to any potential purchaser. There is also a garage, currently used for storage but which would be used for additional parking if required.

Externally there is a private area in shared courtyard style garden with rear access and a private roof terrace with views of Bossington Hill. Just a short walk from the house there are some allotments available to rent at just £20 per year.

Agents note: Due to the nature of the low maintenance garden and it's convenient village location, the property offers considerable potential as a holiday let. 

The property is situated right at the heart of Porlock which has twice been named best village in Somerset with the judges saying 'the range of facilities for young and old would be impressive in a settlement many times bigger - but in a village with 1,188 people on the electoral role it was "remarkable".
There is good range of local shops, restaurants, galleries and a large range of pubs which are patronised year round by locals and visitors alike. The village is a highly attractive and thriving coastal centre set on the edge of Exmoor and adjacent to large areas managed by the National Trust.  The area is ideal for walkers and those who enjoy country pursuits with many walks directly accessible from the village.  Nearby is the quaint and much photographed Porlock Weir Harbour.  The coastal resort of Minehead 6 miles to the East provides a wide range of facilities and the county town of Taunton provides access to the motorway and fast trains to London (from 1 hour 40 minutes)
