Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A delightful period cottage with scope for enlargement (STP) occupying a central village location set in large gardens and ground in all about 3.5 acres.

This detached cottage has been in the same ownership since 1966, and comes to the market following the vendor's decision to downsize. Constructed of rendered elevations under a pitched tiled roof the property provides well-proportioned two bedroom living accommodation arranged over two floors.
In brief, it comprises an entrance hall, dual aspect living room with an open fire place and log burning stove, a dining hall, modern kitchen with oil fired Aga, modern shower room and rear porch.
On the first floor are two bedrooms with the master having ample built in storage.
Outside the property are large lawned gardens, an attached garage and 3.22 acres of productive pasture land.
The potential exists for the property to be extended (STP) and is ideally suited to those with equestrian, agricultural or other similar interests at heart.

The property is situated in the centre of the rural village of Moorland overlooking the church yard and open fields. The village itself is some 5 miles south east of the market town of Bridgwater and some 2.5 miles from the M5 motorway junction 24, thus facilitating communications north to Bristol and south to the county town of Taunton. There is a local inn, village hall, church and occasional bus service.

The property is approached over a shared private drive way through a set of wrought iron gates which leads down the side of the property. Here there is parking for several vehicles and gives access to the attached garage and the land.
The gardens lie to the side and front of the property and are predominantly lawned contained within boxed hedging.
Immediately adjoining the kitchen is a small patio area ideal for summer entertaining and al fresco dining.
A garden path leads down towards to what was formally a vegetable garden. Adjoining is a fruit orchard, greenhouse, potting shed and former pigsty's. From the orchard a gateway gives access to the pasture land which is contained within rhyne boundaries
To access the second field there is a right of way along the adjoining owners land marked by the green dashed line on the ID plan on these particulars. The potential exists to bridge the rhyne to create direct access.
