A beautifully presented period property offering four bedroom living accommodation, detached garage, studio and gardens (additional land and stables available if required).


This charming village property dates back to the mid 17th century and is probably one of the oldest properties in Woolavington. Since then the current owners have sympathetically extended the property to create a spacious 4 bedroom house, whilst retaining many character features
The accommodation is arranged over two floors and briefly comprises a porch which leads to a cross-passage hall way, with doors off to all principle reception rooms, a living room with large ingle-nook fire place, dining room again with ingle-nook (currently disused) and an open plan kitchen/breakfast room with well equipped kitchen enjoying views of the rear gardens. Also on this floor is a spacious reception hall with a cloakroom and triple aspect sitting room with ingle nook fire place with French doors to outside.
On the first floor are four double bedrooms with master enjoying a dressing area and en-suite bathroom. A well-equipped family bathroom services the remaining bedrooms.
Outside the property are gardens to the front and rear, a hot tub, detached garage with studio and stable blocks. Additional land and stables available if required.

Tossells Cottage is situated within the older part of the village of Woolavington facing South overlooking a small area of green. The village of Woolavington has the benefit of two local shops, inn, primary school, church and lies approximately 2 miles or so from access to the M5 motorway, Junction 23. This provides access to Bristol, to the North, Taunton and Exeter the South and also the main centres of the country, including London. The high speed train service operated from Taunton to London Paddington, and to the North and South are international airport's with Bristol and Exeter.
The village of Woolavington lies on the slopes of the Polden Hills, which is a range of hills running more or less East West. To the West within about 5 miles is the town of Brigwater, whilst to the East are the towns of Street and Glastonbury. These towns provide multiple shopping and scholastic facilities, and Millfield public school is at Street, also within the town of Street is the popular shopping facility of Clark's Village. In addition, King's college, Queen's college and Taunton school are found at Taunton.

The property occupies a private location set back from the village road and is accessed via a tarmacadum drive that leads to a gravelled car parking area to the side of the property. Gardens to the front are predominantly lawned and contained within attractive stone walling with well manicured herbaceous borders, a gravelled path leads to a pedestrian gate and to the front door. To the rear of the property is a detached single garage (2.9m x 5.09m) with power and lighting, attached is a timber pergola with creeper plants and to the rear is what is currently being used as a Music Room (8m x 3m) completed with plumbing for a kitchen/bathroom area. This building could be used for a number of alternative uses, namely a granny annexe/office/play room/ games room or gym etc. Immediately adjoining the rear of the house is a gravelled patio area ideal for alfresco dining, summer entertaining along with a hot tub. Adjacent is a lawned garden with well established herbaceous borders and small log shed. Further back within the grounds is a vegetable garden with raised beds and gravelled borders along with a small summer house and greenhouse. At the very bottom is a purpose built log cabin with seating area which folds out to provide sleeping accommodation and central BBQ complete with flue, power & lighting. The gardens are a particular feature to the property and enjoy a great deal of privacy and seclusion which can only be fully appreciated when viewed.
