Four Gables is a highly impressive detached country house set in a most attractive small quiet hamlet within easy reach of village facilities in Combe St Nicholas and popular small town of Ilminster.
The house is believed to date from the 19th Century and is understood to have been run as a school belonging to the Church until 1911. Built principally of solid wall construction under a thatched roof with its unique gabled elevations. The house will require some refurbishment and improvement.
On the ground floor there are 3 reception rooms, kitchen with AGA and utility room. On the first floor there are 4 bedrooms with 2 ancillary rooms together with a bathroom and shower room, also an attic room with bathroom adjoining.
Outside the house is approached from the village road with a circular driveway and former stables converted to a 2 bedroom cottage which provides a delightful annexe or alternatively an opportunity to create an income via long
