Situation - Box Cottage occupies an attractive rural location, on a no through lane, between the villages of Bishops Lydeard and Cotford St Luke, with views north towards the Quantock Hills. It is a particularly attractive area, surrounded by open farmland, close to the West Somerset Steam Railway line. The nearby village of Bishops Lydeard provides excellent amenities to include a primary school, shop, garage, public house and church. The village stands to the foot of the Quantock Hills, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Taunton, the County Town of Somerset is approximately 5 miles away and provides a more comprehensive range of shopping facilities, schooling in both the state and private sectors and has excellent transport links, with a mainline railway station and a junction onto the M5 motorway.

Description - Box Cottage has been recently constructed and comes with an insurance backed 10 year guarantee. It is built to an individual architect design, with rendered elevations under a pitched slated roof, with uPVC double glazing, gas fired central heating throughout and downstairs underfloor heating. The house is currently fitted with bathrooms and en-suite shower rooms, but a kitchen has not yet been fitted, giving the prospective purchaser the opportunity to choose a kitchen of their choice. The initial designs provide a self-contained one bedroom annexe, but the house could easily be arranged to provide more reception space if required.

Accommodation - The accommodation includes an oak front door, which leads to an entrance hallway with an oak turning staircase to the first floor and double doors opening through to an open plan kitchen, living and dining area. The sitting area has dual aspect windows, with an open fireplace recess and bi-folding doors opening out onto the patio. The kitchen is of a good size with windows overlooking the rear garden and access to the downstairs cloakroom and separate utility room, which in turn has a door to the outside and a further door to the garage. From the sitting room, a door leads through to the study/office with a window overlooking the rear garden and also access to the annexe. The annexe has a living room with double doors to the rear garden and a further pedestrian door to the side. There is a shower room with a hand basin and WC, and a further double bedroom/further reception room. On the first floor there are four good sized bedrooms, two with en-suite shower rooms, and a family bathroom, which includes a shower, bath, wash basin and WC.

Outside - Externally, there is an off road parking and turning area, which in turn leads to the attached double garage, where there is electric, light and power, a built in shower room with wash basin and WC, and a door to the rear garden. At the side of the house is a further parking area, which provides access to the rear garden and leads to an open area of land, which is enclosed by natural hedgerow boundaries. There is planning permission for a substantial implement store at the bottom of the garden, which has separate access from the village road. The rear garden includes a deep paved patio area, which leads to an area of garden currently laid to lawn, with wooden fencing panels running the length of one side and a natural hedge boundary on the other, backing onto open fields.

Services - Mains water, private drainage, gas central heating (separate supply to annexe), downstairs underfloor heating.

Directions - From Taunton, turn right at the Cross Keys Roundabout and head towards Bishops Lydeard. After approximately 3 miles, turn left at the next roundabout signposted to Cotford St Luke. At the traffic lights take the right hand turning into Tithill Lane and continue along the lane for approximately 1/2 a mile, where there are a group of cottages, and Box Cottage can be found on the left hand side, identified by a Stags for sale board.
