THIS charming, detached cottage in the rural hamlet of Rowberrow is perhaps a far cry from the literary creation of Discworld, created by author Terry Pratchett.

But it is exactly that - the author's very own Somerset Discworld - his former home.

The cottage sits in a generous plot of almost 1/3rd of an acre with glorious well-tended gardens and is on the market for £765,000.

The property is entered into the hallway, with a sitting room an inglenook fireplace complete with bread oven and now housing a bottled gas fired 'woodburner style' fire. This room then leads through to a second sitting room with a gas fire and with access to the garden.

Going back through the hallway, you come to the newer part of the cottage, where you will find a spacious dining room, perfect for entertaining and family dining and a well fitted kitchen/breakfast room with a range of cream units, built-in oven and hob, dishwasher and space for fridge.

A lovely conservatory provides a tranquil extra sitting room. There is also a downstairs cloakroom with WC.

To the first floor, there are 4/5 bedrooms, with the master having glorious views to the garden and an ensuite bathroom. There is a dressing room off. There are also two shower rooms to this floor.

There is off street parking to the front and a garage, which also has a utility area.
