A pretty semi detached cottage occupying a rural position with large private gardens and scope for enlargement.**NO ONWARD CHAIN**

This pretty period cottage is of stone elevations under a pitched pan tiled roof with attractive dormer windows. On the ground floor are two reception rooms, a kitchen and downstairs shower room and on the first are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. A second set of stairs gives access to two attic rooms which have previously been used as bedrooms and have scope to be incorporated into the living accommodation subject to the necessary consents. There is also plenty of scope on the ground floor to extend again subject to the necessary consents. Outside are large lawned gardens, ample parking and a range of useful outbuildings. Far reaching views can also be enjoyed of the surrounding countryside.

It is the vendors intention to impose an overage clause upon the sale whereby if residential planning consent is granted on the garden then 20% of the gross development value will revert to the vendor. This will reduce to 10% after 15 years and expire after 20 years.

The property is situated about 2 miles to the south of the county town of Taunton occupying an attractive situation with good views to both front and rear over adjoining farmland. The town centre is readily accessible and buses pass close by. Primary schooling is available in the village of Thurlbear within about a mile of the property. The surroundings afford some of the most attractive countryside within the Taunton Vale District and there are numerous local footpaths including the well know Herepath trail that provide easy access.

The property is approached off of the public highway over a concrete driveway which is fenced part of the way with timber post and rails. A set of timber gates lead through to a parking and turning area to the side of the property where there is a range of single storey timber framed buildings along with a semi detached stone built utility with a range of fitted units, plumbing and electrics. The outbuildings were formerly used as workshop and contain a gardeners loo and lean to log store to the rear. The outbuildings are adequate for the current use but provide a footprint should you want to replace them with a carport or garage at a later date. The gardens lie to the front and side where at the front is a low maintenance gravelled garden contained within picket fencing. The remainder of the gardens are predominantly lawned and contained within timber panelled fencing and ever green hedging. To the rear is a glass house, former vegetable patch and timber summer house. There is also a small fish pond with gravel surround enjoying views of open countryside and the Blackdown Hills in the distance.
