An exceptional detached house in a wonderful and peaceful location, yet easily accessible to local facilities. EPC Band E.


Longfield is a magnificent modern property built to exacting standards in a wonderfully private and mature setting. The property was constructed approximately 10 years ago and was architecturally designed by the current owners. The combination of modern property in a mature, private setting with easy access to the first area of natural beauty yet readily accessible to facilities make Longfield a unique proposition.

The Quantock Hills have been designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty and provide excellent walking and riding opportunities. Coombe is near to the highly favoured village of West Monkton with its Village Inn, Church and nearby farm shops. The small town of North Petherton offers a good range of day to day amenities as well as access to the M5 motorway interchange.
