Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Originally built within this superb and beautifully elevated rural plot in the 1930s, the property enjoys much original character charm, as well as beautiful views to Durleigh Reservoir, the Quantocks and neighbouring countryside.

Superbly positioned on the edge of the Quantocks, but equally just under two miles from the town centre of Bridgwater, and being within the catchment area for the highly favoured local schooling, this impressive, detached family home lends itself perfectly to array of demands, whether it be for anyone in need of a generous annexe, the ability to have a separate holiday let, or to run your own business from home. The property has undergone professional extension both in the 1970s, and most recently (and most significantly) in 2007. Externally, the property benefits from generous gardens, a large paddock, substantial driveway parking and outbuildings. Whilst the property is incredibly easily accessible, it should be noted that the elevated position provides for distance and privacy from the road side.
