A rare opportunity in this location. A terraced character cottage with a large integral garage, as well as an attached, fully enclosed rear garden (measuring approximately one third of an acre), offered to the market with no onward chain.
This fascinating house is of unknown origins, although, appears to be several hundred years old and to have once been two cottages. Having been in the same family for approaching sixty years, the property would now benefit from a fairly comprehensive range of updating and improvement works, yet offers we believe, considerable scope for future enhancement and enlargement (subject to obtaining the statutory consents).
Two features stand out, making this, in our opinion, a particularly attractive property in this location. The first is that it has an integral garage (measuring over twenty six feet in length), when parking on this street is limited. The second is that the garden is directly attached and not subject to any rights of way from either of the neighbouring properties; the garden is also of very generous proportions, measuring approximately one third of an acre.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors, comprising: an entrance porch, sitting/dining room, with open fireplace and exposed beams. To either side of the fireplace are cupboards, where certainly in one, there are the remains of a former winding staircase to bedroom one. From the sitting room is a hallway, providing access to the kitchen, a pantry, store, rear garden and hobbies/garden room, with an additional store. Stairs rise from the kitchen to the first floor. The first floor features an initial landing, leading to the bathroom and main landing, which in turn provides access to three bedrooms, all of which are a good double size.
The garden comprises a large area of lawn leading to a small orchard. There are a wide variety of shrubs, flowering plants and trees, some of which are fruit bearing. There is also a garden store, as well as two greenhouses (both requiring attention). The garden is enclosed by hedging and fencing.
Nether Stowey lies on the northern slopes of the Quantock Hills, which is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. This attractive, thriving and historic village is believed to date back to Anglo-Saxon times and indeed, features a mount, where once stood an 11th century Motte and Bailey castle. In more recent times it was home to the poet, Samuel Coleridge, from 1797-1800. During this time he wrote some of his most famous work, including Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Kubla Khan. Today, his former home is owned by the National Trust and open to the public.
In addition, there are a wide range of day-to-day facilities, including: a primary school, church, library, vets, hall, three stores – including a post office, three public houses, hairdressers and butchers. The village lies approximately eight miles to the west of Bridgwater and ten miles to the north-west of Taunton. Both provide a wider range of amenities, as well as M5 motorway access and mainline rail links to the rest of the country.
Follow the A39 west from Bridgwater until reaching the village. Once off the main road and onto St Mary Street, proceed until passing two public houses and the Post Office and onto Lime Street. The property will be found on the right, identified by our For Sale sign.
