Most attractive four bedroom detached cottage set in land extending to approximately seven acres, with stabling and triple garage. Extensively extended and refurbished in recent years to provide a superb family home.  Beautifully updated and modernised by the current vendor, this property really needs to be viewed to be fully appreciated.  With spacious, bright rooms, oak flooring, a superb kitchen with walk-in pantry, both reception rooms have a fireplace with woodburner and a separate dining room which comfortably sits 12-16 people and opens into the garden.  The master bedroom has both an en-suite bathroom and separate shower room together with a walk-in closet.  Externally the property really would suit those with equine interests having four stables and delightful land extending to some seven acres with views out towards Exmoor.  The gardens which surround the house are laid to lawn and easy to maintain.  The property is approached via a five bar gate along a gravelled driveway to an extensive parking/turning area and triple garage.
