On the First Floor Bedroom 1 has generous adjoining En-Suite Dressing Room with a range of built in wardrobes, Bedroom 2 features a flexible En-Suite Bathroom, whilst the Family Bathroom serves Bedrooms 1, 3 and 4. Further to this, the Annexe accommodation can be accessed either internally from the kitchen or externally from the driveway and features accommodation in need of renovation, with 2 Bedrooms, Bathroom, Lounge/Dining Room and Kitchen, currently used as workshop and storage.


A stone pillared entrance is accessed to a gravelled driveway, which passes through the garden and to the side of the cottage providing an open turning and parking area with surrounding flower and shrub beds and leading to a paved patio seating and entertaining area with lean-to greenhouse, Double Garage measuring 18'7 x 15'3 with up and over door, power and light connected. The majority of the gardens lie to the south west side of the house and form wide sweeping lawns interspersed with mature trees and shrubs, continuing for some distance towards the conclusion of the garden, forming a small copse area. The gardens provide a beautiful open space with open vistas, whilst maintaining a good degree of privacy and adjoining fields along one side. The veranda feature attached to the garden side of the house offers an ideal spot to sit, relax or entertain guests whilst having a view down the garden.


The property is superbly located within the hamlet of Huntworth, just under 0.5 mile from the M5, Junction 24 for Bridgwater. The town of Bridgwater lies approximately 2 miles with a wide range of amenities. Just down the road is the Bridgwater and Taunton canal connecting the two towns through beautiful rural countryside with towpath providing walking and cycling access, whilst the nearby Quantock Hills provide stunning open countryside with a network of interconnecting foot and bridle paths leading all the way to the West Somerset coastline.

We would heartily recommend an early inspection of this beautiful, characterful and accessible home.
