Full description

A beautifully presented detached bungalow set within gardens and grounds of approaching 1.5 acres in a charming and peaceful rural situation.

Bracken Cottage dates we understand from around 1948 but has been extended on two further occasions over the years, most particularly within the last 4 years when substantial improvements and modernisation were also undertaken. Built of rendered elevations under slated roofs, the property affords spacious and well lit living accommodation featuring several excellent reception areas, a large and refitted kitchen/breakfast room together with 4/5 bedrooms according to buyers wishes - 2 of the bedrooms have en suite facilities. The standards of decor and appointments throughout is of the highest of standards and cannot be fully appreciated without internal inspection. Undoubtedly one of the main attributes are the lovely grounds within Bracken Cottage sits and which extend to about 1.5 acres. These have been arranged with ease of maintenance in mind and afford various zones of informal garden together with a kitchen garden beyond. There are several useful outbuildings providing garaging, tool storage and green housing which very much compliment the entire package.
It is extremely unusual for such a high calibre bungalow to become available within the district and Bracken Cottage can be recommended for inspection to the most discerning of buyers.

The property is situated in the quiet back water of Crowcombe Heathfield which lies between the villages of Crowcombe, Lydeard St. Lawrence and West Bagborough and in an area that is widely regarded as affording some of the most attractive countryside in the vicinity. Approached from a delightful 'beach avenue' the property enjoys a private situation and although there are a scattering of other properties within the immediate vicinity, none encroaches upon privacy that is enjoyed. There are local facilities in the fore mentioned villages whilst the rural centre of Bishops Lydeard is about 4 miles away where amenities include a mini supermarket and health centre. Taunton, the County Town, is an easy drive about 10 miles away where a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities will be found together with M5 junction and fast rail link to London Paddington. The Quantock Hills which are designated as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are within 1 mile where a multitude of foot and bridle paths can be enjoyed.

The property is approached via a large private driveway from the public road via two double five bar gates, the driveway is laid to chippings and comes out into a very large turning area where there is parking for a large number of vehicles as well as leading to the attached double garage which has light and power and a double electric up and over door. The front garden has a number of large trees and flowering shrubs set in raised beds with rock frontage. There is access via both sides of the house to the rear garden but to the left of the property in particular there is a further area of garden where several sheds are found, the first of which is used as a tool store currently, the second being used as a large timber log store which benefits from light and power as well as a large work unit. The gardens in general are a particular feature of this property and are completely south facing and boast a large number of mature trees as well as many flowering beds with an array of plants and shrubs with large sections of lawn between and immediately adjoining the rear of the property and running the entire length of the property is a large sitting out area laid to chippings, there is also a further patio space offering another sitting out area. Further up the garden is a sectioned off area currently being used as a very productive vegetable garden as well as housing several compost areas and also leads via a pedestrian five bar gate through to an extra section of amenity ground. The garden also boasts a large Robinsons aluminium greenhouse with a brick base as well as further storage sheds and an oil tank.
