Bedrooms: 4
An enchanting period house, together with a two bedroom cottage, all beautifully presented and set within a tiny peaceful hamlet enjoying glorious views.

The aptly named Four Gables is a truly enchanting house in so many ways. The property is justifiably Grade II Listed with its intriguing facade and steeply pitched newly thatched roof. Built in the mid-19th Century as part of the Rev. Richard Chute Codrington's copyhold estate, it was sold by the church in 1912. In recent years it has been painstakingly restored by the present owners to create magical and characterful but modern home; including a beautiful kitchen by Spillers of Chard, which offers a central island, shaker cabinets and a 'state of the art' AGA range induction cooker. The ground floor reception space includes a pretty drawing room with a bay window of octagonal panes and a fireplace with Clear View woodburning stove. The dining room, which lies on the opposite side of the hall has a handsome carved marble fireplace, flagstone floors and window overlooking the gardens and beyond. Found off the kitchen are both a utility room and the garden room, with French door out onto the terrace. All first floor rooms enjoy views of the gardens through the newly fitted leaded windows. One striking guest room has a rare Sottini Calvari Rain Bath and separate cloakroom. The principal bedroom has a pretty original fireplace, an en suite shower room and adjacent dressing room. A Jack & Jill bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower is found between this and the third bedroom. A further staircase leads to the loft studio/bedroom with vaulted ceiling, exposed roof timbers and adjoining shower room. The setting of Four Gables is particularly special, facing due south, with beautiful, well stocked borders of shrubs and perennials and timbered gardens with streams, water garden, ponds, and a small copse with numerous specimen and flowering trees.

The Stables.

The ground floor incorporates the garage and round to the side a front door leads into a dining hall and well fitted kitchen. A staircase leads up to the first floor reception room and an inner landing leads to the newly fitted bathroom and two bedrooms.
