Tenure: Freehold

An excellent character detached village house providing family living accommodation with many original features set within good sized gardens that include a substantial detached annexe.
Taunton 6 miles


Although Corner Cottage is not listed, its origins go back we understand to the 16th Century and there are certainly many of its original features retained in particular with fine inglenook fireplaces in both reception rooms as well as exposed wall and ceiling timbers in many areas. The house affords three good sized reception rooms together with a large conservatory/garden room that directly adjoins the kitchen. Three bedrooms are afforded at first floor level, the master bedroom having en suite facilities whilst a fourth bedroom is also present on the ground floor - a separate shower room is provided close by. Corner Cottage is set within established and attractive good sized gardens that enjoy some good privacy within which is a substantial detached L shaped annexe which for many years was used for leisure purposes but equally would be very well suited for a dependant relative or other hobby or leisure needs. The property is well presented and benefits from replacement windows to the majority of openings and oil fired central heating.

The property is situated on the outskirts of the village of Curry Mallet in a peaceful location and enjoys the benefit of some rural views from the gardens. The village offers a pub, post office and primary school whilst the County Town of Taunton is an easy drive some 6 miles away where a wide range of shopping, recreational and leisure facilities will be found with representation by most national retailers together with main line rail link to London/Paddington and M5 interchange. The property is also well placed for relatively easy access to the A303 to the South which provides good access across southern England. The village and the general area are well regarded in the locality and can be recommended to any prospective buyer.

The property is approached via a five bar entrance gate which leads to a generous gravelled driveway with parking for several vehicles. Partly walled gardens adjoin, the main gardens being sectioned off with well established laurel hedging. A further section of garden adjoins to the front which is largely dedicated at present to a chicken run with associated buildings and wired compound. The principal gardens lie to the rear of the house and form a delightful setting providing generous lawns, well established herbaceous borders, attractive rose arbour and wild life pond with lily pads and established borders. The gardens enjoy a good degree of privacy as well as some attractive rural outlooks. At the far end of the gardens is an excellent detached annexe building used in previous times as an indoor swimming pool and snooker room (the former can be re-instated without major difficulty if desired) but now converted to provide an excellent ½ bedroom annexe providing an excellent main bedroom adjoining second reception room with the principal area dedicated as a large main living room with kitchen area of together with separate shower room and toilet. The annexe enjoys the benefit of a separate heating system. This building offers a wide range of opportunities for use as a home office, for a dependant relative or for leisure purposes (subject to any planning consents that may be required).
In all the grounds extend to approximately ------- acres.
