Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Mancroft House is a tastefully presented stone cottage which is understood to date back to the early part of the 19th century and in more recent times has been sympathetically extended and remodelled to provide spacious accommodation whilst retaining much of its original character and charm. The property boast three impressive reception rooms, each featuring fireplaces and of particular note is the large inglenook fireplace situated within the snug and the panelled walling featured in the entrance hallway. The previous owners added a large wooden double glazed conservatory that enjoys delightful views across the garden. The kitchen has been fitted with a wide range of bespoke units with granite work surfacing, integrated appliances and has the added benefit of a utility room which has been finished to the same high standard of specification. There is also a useful side lobby that leads out to the detached garage and a well designed downstairs shower room. All four bedrooms and the family bathroom are located on the first floor, each offering views over the rear garden.

Mancroft House sits in a pleasantly quiet location on the very outskirts of this scattered and much sought after village of Wambrook, on the eastern extremities of the Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, nestling on the Somerset/Devon Border and within 14 miles of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis. The village itself is a thriving close knit community with many similar period properties, a fine Parish Church and popular local pub, the Cotley Inn. The surrounding countryside is gloriously unspoilt with mostly mixed traditional farming, and footpaths and bridleways abound. The small country town of Chard (4 miles) and Ilminster (8 miles) cater for most daily needs and the County Town of Taunton is some 14 miles to the North with a wide range of retail, commercial and leisure opportunities. Other nearby towns include Axminster, Honiton and Bridport, some 9, 10 and 21 miles distant respectively. Both the M5 motorway and A303 trunk route are readily accessible, there are intercity rail services at Taunton (London Paddington) or Axminster (London Waterloo) and international airports at Bristol or Exeter.
