The Old Vicarage
The Old Vicarage is a characterful former Vicarage built from Lyme Bay flint and retains a wealth of character features including bath stone fireplaces, cornicing and tiled floors. The current owners have updated the property over the last few years to create a spacious family home.

Approached from the gravelled driveway and parking area you are led through a grand pillared archway and into the porch and entrance hall with tiled floors and stairs further along leading to the first floor. To the right of the hall is the drawing room with an open fireplace with wood surround, wooden floors and a large bay window overlooking the gardens and the study with an original fireplace with a bath stone surround. Straight ahead is the spacious drawing room, again with a bath stone fireplace surround and a wood burner, double doors to a paved seating area and double doors to the conservatory. The conservatory was added by the current owners and has tiled floors keeping it cool in the summer months and double glazing and underfloor heating for the winter months. Double doors lead out to the gardens.

To the left of the entrance hall is the kitchen/breakfast room featuring stone tiles, fitted wooden units, a Belling range and gas hob and a breakfast island. Doors lead to the courtyard and a utility room with a sink, plumbing for a washing machine and an original well. A door also leads to the courtyard from the utility room. Also to the left of the entrance hall is a downstairs WC and a connecting door to the annexe. The annexe can be accessed separately from the courtyard and is self-contained with a kitchen and wet room.

The stairs lead to a half landing with a large original window overlooking the gardens and leads up to the landing. To the right is the master bedroom with ample storage, built by the current owner, a balcony with stunning views over the gardens and paddock and an ensuite bathroom with a separate shower cubicle. There are four further bedrooms, one with an ensuite bathroom with a roll top bath, one of them single and a family bathroom.

The Coach House
The Coach House was a former barn converted by the current owners into a three bedroom cottage. It can be used for visiting family, friends or as potential additional income from a holiday let or as a rental property.
From the main entrance you are led into a hall with dual aspect stairs leading to the first floor. To the right is a sitting room with an adjoining garden room providing access to the garden and to the left is the kitchen/dining room with a downstairs WC also off the hall. The first floor has three bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room and a family bathroom.

The Old Vicarage is situated in the village of Tatworth, on the Somerset, Devon and Dorset borders with Chard nearby, a very active town with superb shopping facilities, a museum and various activities for adults and children. Axminster is 5 miles away and the town also provides a wide range of amenities including primary schools.

The delightful coastal town of Lyme Regis is within 10 miles and provides a good range of educational, recreational and shopping facilities, including banks, Post Office, library, health centre, hotels, inns, restaurants, museums, art galleries, cinema and theatre.

Taunton approximately 18 miles away is the county town and offers a wider range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities for boys and girls of all ages, including Taunton School, Kings College, Queen's College and King's Hall. The town enjoys excellent communication links with the rest of the UK with fast rail service to London Paddington with many journey times of fewer than 2 hours, together with the M5 interchange (junction 25). Both Exeter and Bristol airports are within a one hour drive.

The Old Vicarage sits within its own stunning south facing gardens and various outbuildings. A courtyard providing access to the annexe is found outside the kitchen and has a wood store, the original Victorian washroom, used for storage and a gardener's toilet.

A large lawned area slopes down from the terraced seating areas at the rear of the house leading to the many different areas of the gardens. Established trees including genko, oak, beech and pine surround the property boundaries offering seclusion and under which lies a carpet of bluebells. A children's play area and a summerhouse with a stone BBQ/pizza oven can also be found in the shade of the trees.

A flat area of garden to the rear of the courtyard has a productive vegetable patch, a greenhouse and gardeners shed for garden machinery storage. Along the drive, past the coach house is a further parking area, a double garage/workshop with an office and concrete floors and the entrance to the paddock of approximately 2 acres.
