Occupying an elevated setting above the village Castle Hill House, Listed Grade II, is undoubtedly one of the most important properties in this Quantock Hills village being of great historic importance. This beautiful old house is believed to date back to the mid-sixteenth century with later additions including the Georgian façade of mellow brickwork with symmetrical small pane windows and has in recent years been sympathetically yet meticulously restored and modernised. The front door leads into a welcoming hall with ceiling cornice and French oak floor and has doors leading into a particularly well fitted kitchen with a generous range of hand painted cupboards topped with granite work surfaces and includes excellent appliances including a Rangemaster six ring gas hob cooker with ovens below, fitted dishwasher and fridge / freezer. The breakfast area has French doors out onto a decking area. The spacious sitting room, with handsome fireplace has a massive beam over and a wood burning stove and well preserved herringbone brick fireback. The staircase hall exhibits the beautiful turning staircase and an inner lobby to the library / snug, with an excellent range of built in cupboards and bookcases, a period fireplace with wood burning stove and double aspect. An inner lobby has cupboards and a door leading into the cloakroom with fitted WC, wooden seat and wash hand basin. A laundry provides excellent utility space with Belfast sink, built in cupboards, with housing for the hot water cylinder and steps down to the original creamery with brick floor, door to the outside and a door through to the wine store with original wine bins. The mezzanine landing has a door into the beautifully proportioned drawing room with period fireplace with wood burning stove, low level cupboards, bookcases and a large bay window with beautiful far reaching views, original ceiling frieze and dado rail.
