About the Property
A superbly presented stone built cottage within the quiet village of Huish Episcopi. Believed to date back over 200 years, the property has been extended by previous owners and now presents itself as a four-bedroom property of deceptively substantial proportions.
About the Inside
There is a useful porch to the front which leads into the bright and airy sitting room which has a beautiful, exposed stone-built wall and chimney breast with space for an inset gas fireplace. This room has been fitted with attractive wood effect flooring that extends into the second reception room. This area is currently being used as a home office, but provides potential to be used as a dining room or play room. This reception benefits from dual aspect and is flooded with natural light and has direct access to the garden at the rear and features another original fireplace with space for inset gas fireplace. Adjoining, is a further reception room providing the perfect place for a snug or ground floor bedroom.
As you continue to the rear of the property, there is a hallway which provides useful access into the property from the front, and doors to both a utility room and ground floor shower room.
There is fantastic sized kitchen which has been fitted with a mix of wall and base units, finished in a soft white and is complimented by natural wood/wood effect TBC worktops. In addition, there is also a useful pantry. The kitchen can comfortably accommodate a set of table and chairs, and further potential for a kitchen island if required. Double doors lead into the conservatory which is currently used as a dining area and has doors into the garden whilst flooding the room with plenty of natural light.
Upstairs there are four generously proportioned bedrooms and a family bathroom that services all bedrooms. The principal bedroom and bedroom two are located in the original part of the cottage and benefit from beautiful features such as original, restored wood flooring and an original fireplace. The principal bedroom also has the additional benefit of an ensuite toilet. Bedroom three is generous in proportions, with space for a double bed alongside a multitude of freestanding furniture and enjoys views overlooking the expansive garden at the rear. Bedroom four is a smaller double/generous single and enjoys the same views across the garden.
About the Outside
Outside the property there is a single garage and ample off-road parking for multiple vehicles.
The garden at the rear has been split into multiple zones and offers a patio area adjoining the property, the ideal area for alfresco dining, bordered by raised flowerbeds. Steps ascend to a deceptively large enclosed area laid to lawn with a summerhouse style 'home pub' at end.
