This charming three-bedroom cottage sits in a prime position on the fringes of the pretty village of Horton, just five miles north of Chard and over two miles west of Ilminster.

The period property was completely renovated and extended in 2016 with desirable results that show a sympathetic blend of characterful original features with modern contemporary fixtures.

Inside, the house is superbly appointed and presents several fine features. The cosy sitting room is a charming space with an oak window seat, an inglenook fireplace with an electric wood burner, and it has two built-in cupboards and underfloor heating.

The open-plan kitchen/dining room is a highlight of the property and certainly has the wow factor. This light-filled space features a stunning kitchen with cream soft-touch units, contrasting work surfaces, several integrated appliances and a handy breakfast bar. The whole room is fitted with lovely, engineered oak flooring and underfloor heating. Bi-fold doors open out to the spacious patio and garden, extending the space and bringing ‘the outside in’.

On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms and a stylish family bathroom with fully tiled walls and Karndean flooring. The principal and guest bedrooms each benefit from ensuite shower rooms.

Outside, the rear garden has been landscaped with low maintenance in mind and is mainly laid to lawn bordered by a mixture of hedges and fences. Several mature trees and shrubs add points of interest, and a spacious patio adjoins the house which is a wonderful spot for entertaining or al fresco dining. The garden benefits from far-reaching views of the countryside.

At the front, the driveway is large enough to accommodate several parked vehicles and leads to a detached garage.
