Full description

Tenure: Freehold

As the name suggests this character cottage was once home to the local Blacksmith. Extended on numerous occasions the property now provides comfortable family accommodation over its two floors providing fine views to Tone Vale across its stable block, double garage and c. 1.25 acre paddock. Set at the foot of the Blackdown Hills, an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' the hamlet of Blackmoor is found in a semi rural location yet with the convenience of easy access to the M5 at junction 26, the A38 and the nearby town of Wellington approx. 3 miles distant.

ACCOMMODATION: Accessed off a country lane with the front facing in an easterly direction the ENTRANCE PORCH provides ample room for coats and boots with a door leading to the CLOAKROOM. The ENTRANCE HALL offers stairs rising to the first floor and doors into the principle reception rooms consisting of the large SITTING ROOM providing a focal Jetmaster open fireplace set upon a slate hearth and wooden surround. This light and airy room offers a dual aspect through the large bow window to the front and sliding patio doors to the rear. The DINING ROOM is one of the oldest areas of the property, something which is evident with exposed beams and the low ledge and plank door on entering the room. Generously proportioned there is ample space for table and chairs whilst a window provides an aspect to the front. The KITCHEN is located to the rear of the property and forms part of the latter day extension and also accommodates a useful UTILITY ROOM as well as plentiful storage. The KITCHEN itself is fitted with a range of cream front units with contrasting dark granite effect work surfaces. This incorporates space for oven with extractor hood over, integrated dishwasher, one and half bowl single drainer stainless steel sink, breakfast bar and floor mounted Grant oil fired boiler whilst the utility room provides space and plumbing for washing machine and tumble drier. Just off the kitchen and currently used as a downstairs bedroom is a generously proportioned room that offers alternative uses as STUDY/BEDROOM 4, play room or dining room as it is located adjacent to the kitchen.

FIRST FLOOR: As stated previously the property exudes a wealth of charm and character with a quaint window found to the right hand side of the stair well along with further features associated with a property of this age. All THREE BEDROOMS are double in size offering varying views of the surrounding countryside. The BATHROOM offers a white three piece suite to include shower over the panelled bath, wash hand basin and low level W.C.

OUTSIDE: The property is laid out in three distinct areas - the house, the yard/stables and the land. The house itself sits to the southern edge of its plot with pedestrian path running its perimeter. To the rear is an area of garden providing a high level of privacy, laid to lawn with raised flower bed stretching along its western boundary. The outbuildings, land and further garden are found to the other side of the stream and dividing bridle path. With direct access off the road the main yard area has a THREE BERTH STABLE BLOCK and DOUBLE GARAGE to one corner as well as offering ample space on the concrete driveway all with water and power supply. A secure WORKSHOP/TACK ROOM is located opposite the stable block. On approaching the land there is an additional area of garden ideal for sitting out whilst a wide field gate provides access to the PADDOCK with water supply, wooden fence boundary to the east and natural hedge line to the west and enjoying superb views of Tone Vale and surrounding countryside.
From our office in South Street turn right along High Street and proceed in the Taunton direction out of the town. At the roundabout take the M5 turning and just before entering the motorway take the turning left to West Buckland. Upon entering the village turn right and continue along passing the school and then the Motorway. Continue for approx 1 mile and The Forge can be found side on to the road on the right hand side.
