Full Description

Detached country property situated off a leafy lane in the much favoured and unspoilt village of Luccombe, within the Vale of Porlock, in Exmoor National Park. Occupying a pleasant position this well proportioned, spacious, home, is currently a fantastic family home but would equally lend itself to someone looking for a place in the country. Wells Wood Leap abuts the lane and enjoys privacy with lovely views across fields. The Architect carefully designed the house to include many features from the local National Trust period cottages. It has a traditional country house feel without all the problems associated with a period property. An internal inspection is a must to fully appreciate what the property has to offer.

Luccombe is a pretty idyllic village with many period cottages owned by the National Trust. Nestling at the foot of Dunkery Beacon, the highest point in Somerset, Luccombe is well placed to enjoy the moor and the sea, with bridle paths, and footpaths through woods and moor. The village is conveniently located just two miles from Porlock with its shops and school and four miles from the town of Minehead. Situated within the Porlock Vale and a few miles from the sea, it avoids the wintery weather associated with the higher areas of Exmoor. Only 28 miles from the County town of Taunton with mainline rail and motorway. Exmoor provides many opportunities to partake in a number of country pursuits including shooting, fishing, riding, cycling and walking. The present owners enjoy the lovely walks and have a pony in rented fields and stable nearby. The House has all the usual services available like internet for work or shopping with supermarket delivery, broadband, mains sewage and water.
