Tenure: Freehold

Attractive 4 bedroom country bungalow with outstanding views, a stable block and grounds extending to 4.278 Acres. South facing aspect and set in the heart of the Blackdown Hills. EPC: Band E

Westfield is thought to be about 50 years old, brick built beneath a tiled roof, and in recent times has been substantially extended and upgraded to provide versatile and flexible accommodation with the benefit of uPVC double glazing and oil fired central heating. Further plans are in place to create a first floor loft extension which would enjoy stunning views. Currently the accommodation offers a lovely South facing sitting room, superb kitchen with dining area off, cloakroom and laundry room, together with four bedrooms and a bathroom. The property is set in mature gardens with ample parking and a single garage, also with consent to enlarge. For anyone with equestrian interests (or other livestock) there is a very tidy stable block and two neat post and railed paddocks. The whole is believed to extend to an estimated 4.278 Acres.

Westfield is situated on the outskirts of the popular village of Bishopswood which lies close to the Somerset/Devon border. The village itself, offers an excellent pub/restaurant (The Candlelight Inn). Primary schooling is available nearby at Buckland St Mary whilst local traders will also call. The main centre is Taunton which lies about 6 miles to the north where a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities will be found including several noted public schools, an M5 interchange and fast rail link to London Paddington. Bishopswood lies within the folds of the Blackdown Hills which are designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty and where a host of both foot and bridle paths are available. Other local towns at Honiton and Chard are also readily accessible together with the south coast, Sidmouth and Lyme Regis. The property occupies an attractive and peaceful situation above the village and one that is readily accessible both from the A303/A30 to the south and also to Taunton to the north.

There is a wide tarmac driveway and parking area together with a small single Garage (currently only used for storage) with planning consent to extend. The gardens are well established with extensive lawned areas, a variety of shrubs and trees, Spring flowers, vegetable beds and a small copse with stream running through and a mass of bluebells. The land runs behind the bungalow and is well maintained and divided into two neat post and railed paddocks, accessed from an unmade lane at the rear. A 5 bar gate leads into a post and railed yard with timber Stable Block set on concrete pad with Loose Box 11'8 x 11'5 with electric light, Hay Store 15'1 x 11'10 with double doors and Feed Room 11'9 x 6' with light and power. The whole area is thought to extend to an estimated 4.278 Acres.
