Full description

This attractively located, part stone built COUNTRY COTTAGE is a real rarity and has not been seen on the market for the last 30-years. A country property with a smattering of period features including fireplaces, stone elevations and an interesting architectural double buttress to the north external wall. There are floor level changes throughout the property adding interest. But what really captures the imagination is the external space; the views to the rear aspect are nothing short of beautiful.

The property benefits from a WOODEN STABLE BLOCK COMPRISING ACCOMMODATION FOR THREE HORSES, with hard standing to the front, tack room, extensive parking and manoeuvring space, horse box storage area to the rear and adjacent paddocks totalling approx 2 acres.

Located between the villages of Holcombe and Stoke St Michael, at the junction of two unclassified country lanes, Giddy Lane and Frog Lane, the stone-built Combe Cottage is believed to date back to 1685 but has also been subject to more recent extensions to improve the total size of living accommodation.

The extensive and extremely pretty gardens and fantastic aspect are a huge asset. There are currently four separate lawned garden areas which are divided by a combination of fencing, hedges and stone walls and each afford views of the bordering natural woodland, some of which may be available by negotiation, and the extensive rolling countryside providing a truly beautiful setting. There are several paved and gravel seating areas and a variety of sheds, summerhouses and greenhouses are included.

The accommodation itself is in two parts; the first of which is a 4-bed cottage including master bedroom with en-suite, family bathroom, 2 receptions, kitchen, utility, cloakroom/wc and entrance porch. Further accommodation is available in the annex. This has 1-bedroom, 2 receptions, an office space/sun room, kitchenette, shower room and boot lobby.

The overall living space has been apportioned to enable the current owners to operate the property as a B&B/guest house. It is possible that a new owner will want to explore some remodelling to maximise its use or make provision for a semi-independent family member.

We thoroughly recommend a viewing to appreciate all that is on offer.
