An attractive period cottage offering four/five bedroom living accommodation, large well maintained gardens, garage and off street parking.

This attractive period property is believed to date back to 1826, has since between extended and is of red brick elevations under a pitch tiled roof. The current vendors have invested in new windows, cavity wall insulation and an air source heat pump heating system making the property more economical to run which is unusual for a property of this era. The accommodation in brief comprises a cross passage hallway, a dining room with former inglenook fireplace and stairs rising to the first floor, a study which leads through to a living room with log burning stove and doors lead out to a conservatory which enjoys views of the gardens. An opening flows into a fabulous breakfast/kitchen room with a range of fitted base units with quartz work tops and a number of integral appliances and a small utility and downstairs shower room are also present. On the first floor are four bedrooms and family bathroom with the master enjoying a dual aspect and walk in dressing room. The guest bedroom has an en-suite and the spacious landing could create an additional bedroom if required.

The property is situated in Curload, within the village of Stoke St Gregory, which is on the edge of the Somerset Levels—an area famous for its Withy beds and basket making and designated as an environmentally sensitive area. Close by is the village of North Curry and between them, North Curry and Stoke St Gregory provide a range of local facilities including post offices, primary schools, general stores, health centre and churches. A variety of pubs can be found in the area, serving excellent food including the renowned Firehouse at Curry Rivel and more locally, The King Alfred Inn. A more comprehensive range of amenities are available in the county town of Taunton about ten miles away including excellent state and independent schools, theatre, County Cricket Ground and railway station with frequent services to London Paddington. The M5 motorway is extremely accessible with Junction 25 only 7.5 miles from the property.

There are numerous, all-year round attractions with the nearby Willows and Wetland Centre and a number of National Trust properties. Excellent walking can be enjoyed along the droves and the many footpaths in the area.

The property is set back from the public highway and has two off street parking bays which gives access to a garage and car port where a useful workshop and store room can also be found. Pedestrian access can be gained from the adjoining lane over a flagstone path, flanked on either side by mature flowerbeds and areas of lawn contained within natural hedgerow boundaries. The main gardens enjoy a westerly aspect and are predominately lawned with well established borders containing a number of flowers, plants, shrubs and bushes. To the rear of the property a productive soft fruit area can be found and a sun terrace adjoins the house, ideal for alfresco dining and summer entertaining. An orchard lies beyond containing a number of mature fruit trees and raised vegetable beds. Vehicular access can also be gained here from the adjoining lane which could give scope for additional parking if required. The gardens are a real selling point to this property which can only be fully appreciated when viewed.
