Property description

Tenure: Freehold

An outstanding 5/6 bedroom detached country house occupying a magnificent elevated location on the Southern edge of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and enjoying superb long range views. EPC: Band E

Hillside is a substantial detached property with 19th Century origins that has been extended and updated in recent times to create a superb family home with versatile accommodation. Built with rendered elevations set beneath a slate roof, the house benefits from oil fired central heating, together with a lovely open fireplace in the sitting room with inset log burner, and modern double glazing. The layout is particularly flexible with a potential self contained annexe on the ground floor, as shown on the accompanying floor plan, that could suit a dependent relative or provide a small income stream.
Approached through a front entrance porch, a wide hallway, with cloakroom off, gives access to a lovely double aspect sitting room with double doors opening into the dining room and garden room beyond, all with stunning country views. The recently refurbished kitchen/breakfast room is equipped with quality appliances including a Neff induction hob and oil fired Aga and a separate utility room opens to the garden. The remainder of the ground floor provides a double bedroom, shower room and small sitting room. Superb long range views are enjoyed from all five first floor bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities and there is a generous family bathroom.

The property is approached from the village road through imposing entrance pillars that lead to a wide driveway/parking area together with a substantial double garage with twin up and over doors. To the rear is a very useful implement store with doors at either end.

The gardens are meticulously maintained with sweeping lawns, herbaceous borders, mature shrubs and trees. On the West side is paved and gravelled terrace with ornamental pond and the boundaries are a mix of stone walling, feather edge fencing and natural banks, all providing a high degree of privacy.

An exceptional family home in a private but accessible location surrounded by glorious open countryside.

Hillside occupies a stunning elevated location on the Southern extremity of The Blackdown Hills and enjoys far reaching views over traditional and unspoilt countryside. Designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and located on the border of Somerset and Devon, this tranquil landscape is rich in wildlife and heritage with many small farms and winding country lanes. The property is within ½ mile of Buckland St Mary village where amenities include primary school, Church and community hall and the neighbouring villages of Combe St Nicholas and Bishopswood both offer a range of local facilities.
The small market towns of Chard and Ilminster are both about 6 miles distant catering for most daily needs whilst the County Town of Taunton is just 10 miles to the North with excellent retail, commercial and educational opportunities, including a wide choice of schools in both the state and independent sectors. An intercity rail link provides a good service to London Paddington and there is easy access to both the M5 motorway and A303 together with excellent regional airports at Exeter and Bristol. The World Heritage Jurassic Coast is just 18 miles to the South at Lyme Regis with its renowned Cobb Harbour, interesting architecture and a host of leisure activities.
