About the property:
A beautifully renovated detached stone built cottage tucked down a secret lane in West Horrington, with generously proportioned living spaces, three bedrooms and a contemporary bathroom. The property offers period features including flagstone floors, exposed beams, and wonderful nooks throughout. Gardens and terraces with stunning countryside views wrap around the house, offering secluded sunny spots to take in the views of Glastonbury Tor. The property benefits from off street parking for several vehicles with an oak framed carport.
About the inside:
Entering the property through the oak stable door you come straight into the large kitchen/dining room with beautifully restored flagstone floors, a large bay window with window seat overlooking the front courtyard, fireplace with wood burning stove, and wooden kitchen units with a belfast sink. A door leads into a useful store room. The flagstone floor extends into the 20ft sitting room which is a wonderful light space with exposed beams and french doors to the front. A stone fireplace houses a woodburning stove.
Wooden stairs from the sitting room lead up to the first floor where there are three good size bedrooms, all with windows to the front taking in far reaching countryside views, and the contemporary family bathroom with a roll top bath and separate shower.
About the outside:
Approached via a private footpath, the main gate opens into a private and sunny front courtyard with space for a table and chairs, perfect for al fresco dining. The path leads across the front of the cottage to the delightful side garden which features a stone built outbuilding, lawn, and another private, paved seating area. Steps lead up to the rear garden which stretches behind the whole property and enjoys a variety of mature trees and shrubs. A pergola covered seating area offers a quiet sunny spot. Stone walls surround the garden, and an elevated bench offers stunning views across the countryside. The property benefits from private off street parking nearby for multiple vehicles with additional under-cover oak framed car port.
