  • Bedrooms: 4
A fantastically situated bungalow enjoying complete privacy and seclusion with fabulous gardens and far reaching views.

As the name suggests the property has a number of natural springs creating streams and water features and a highly productive garden. The bungalow occupies a private tucked away position and is believed to date back to the 1950's, constructed of rendered brick elevations under a pitch tiled roof. The property has been well maintained but would now benefit from modernisation and possibly remodelling but has the potential to create a unique and exclusive village residence. The accommodation at present comprises an entrance porch, kitchen/breakfast room with an opening that flows through to a dining room , a separate living room with log burning stove which over looks the gardens, a study, WC and utility. The sleeping accommodation is arranged at the other end of the property and enjoys three bedrooms and a family bathroom. An exterior staircase leads to the first floor where there is a guest bedroom with en-suite.

Outside is ample parking and a single garage and workshop to the rear. At the front are fabulous landscaped gardens together with a number of garden sheds. The real selling point of this property is the position and outside space which can only be fully appreciated when viewed.

The property occupies a delightful tucked away location down a no through road close to the centre of this favoured village which lies 3 miles to the north of the county town of Taunton and lies at the foot of the Quantock Hills which are designated as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and where many lovely bridle and foot paths can be enjoyed. The village itself is regarded as one of the premier settlements in the Taunton Vale district and is dominated by an interesting mix of principally character properties. A popular pub, primary school and attractive parish Church are present whilst Taunton is an easy drive some 3 miles away where upon a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities can be found including three noted Public Schools. Taunton offers good communication links with the rest of the UK with fast rail service to London Paddington and M5 interchange (J25). International airports can be found at both Bristol and Exeter, both within an hour's drive.

The property is approached over a no through road via a five bar gate which leads to a car parking and turning area for several vehicles. Here access can be gained to the single garage with up and over door (3.4 x 5.4m), a timber garden shed/workshop is also present and a pathway leads to the side gardens. The previous owners, as you will see when viewing, were gardening fanatics and there are areas with water features, mature trees, lawn, shrubs, bushes and vegetable patch amongst others. There is a spring fed pond at the top which cascades down as a series of small waterfalls across the gardens creating a haven for wildlife, flora and fauna. A sun terrace adjoins the rear of the property—ideal for alfresco dining and summer entertaining along with a substantial potting shed and store shed. Both the property and garden are south facing.
