The accommodation which is arranged over two floors is incredibly spacious and briefly comprises a porch which leads to a cross passage hallway, living room with open fireplace containing a log burning stove which in turn give access to a sitting room, again with open fireplace. To the other end of the property is a fantastic kitchen/dining room which has been recently renovated and is a real focus point of the property. Enjoying a dual aspect there is a large inglenook with oil fired AGA complete with former bread oven and a second inglenook houses an electric AGA. To the rear is a range of farmhouse style kitchen units with Belfast sink and integral dishwasher. A door off leads to a rear hall and large utility with downstairs shower room. Also on this floor is a boot room which runs ¾ of the length of the house. On the first floor are four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The bathroom is in need of renovation and currently provides a WC and hand wash basin but has the space for a bath and separate shower.
Gardens lie to the front and side, to the rear is a substantial two storey stone barn with alternative use potential (STP), a courtyard with further outbuildings and 12 acre of pasture land. Due to the nature of this property it makes it ideally suited to those with agricultural/equestrian or other similar interests at heart.
The property is situated just outside the small hamlet of Wick, close to the North Somerset coastline and although very private it is by no means isolated with good road access close by. A short distance to the South West is the village of Stogursey, where there is a good number of local amenities including village shops and a primary school. A more comprehensive range of facilities can be found in both Taunton and Bridgwater which lie South and South East with Taunton being renowned for its public schools. Motorway access can be gained at junctions 23 & 24 of the M5 motorway, whilst Taunton benefits from a direct line rail link to London Paddington. The Quantock Hills are within a short drive which are designated as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and where many footpaths and bridle ways for country walks and hacking out can be found. The equestrian enthusiast as well would be catered for with Stockland Lovell cross country course and Quantock Vale Hunt Kennels, both just a few minutes away. Local riding can be enjoyed on the quiet country lanes and tracks with an enhanced local bridle way network planned and with easy access to the foreshore. Pontispool Equestrian Centre is located at Taunton and the Quantock Pony and Riding clubs are very active, running competitions throughout the season.
The property is approached off the Council highway over a gravelled driveway flagged on either side by lawned gardens. The driveway continues to the side of the property which provides parking for several cars. The formal gardens lie to the front and are contained within attractive stone walling and mature herbaceous borders. Here the gardens are predominantly lawned interspersed from the number of mature shrubs, trees and bushes. Immediately adjoining the house is a partly finished timber decking area designed for a hot tub and a side gate gives access to one of the fields. Abutting the Eastern elevation is a single storey barn (3.6m ext x 13.4m ext) of traditional construction under a pitched tiled roof currently used for log storage, coal store and a dog kennel but could be used for a number of alternative uses subject to planning, namely an annexe, games room, gym or home office. To the north is a two storey stone barn (20m ext x 6.2m ext plus leanto 4.35m x 20m) currently used to house livestock but again has a number of alternative uses subject to planning. A small courtyard containing an L-shaped timber framed open fronted livestock barn (4.5m x12.6m plus 4.5m x6.8m) is also present contained within timber post and rail fencing. Here access to the land can be gained which is predominantly level and comprises two enclosures and have separate road access to the adjoining highway. In total the property extends to approximately 12.07 acres as shaded pink on the attached identification plan.
Approximately 2 acres of the northern most field is owned by a third party and is currently let to the current owners. We have been informed that this arrangement would continue with the new owners.
