This large cottage formed the village shop in the early 1900s and later became the Post Office along with keepers' accommodation and as such is part of the history of the popular village of Spaxton. The village itself sits on the edge of the Quantock Hills, just outside the designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with Hawkridge reservoir nearby.
The property has been lovingly restored and is presented excellently throughout and the entire cottage is about to be re-roofed by the current vendors.
Wonderful in so many ways, this freehold cottage certainly contributes towards the distinctive signature of Spaxton. This charming cottage is a ‘one of a kind’ boasting an abundance of character and unique features.
Cobb Cottage offers flexible accommodation, benefiting from a second staircase providing direct access to the first floor from outside, offering potential for an annexe or multi-generational living.
At the front of the cottage is a driveway, comfortable for two cars, as well as a separate driveway for one car with garage behind.

Also looking to the front of the property is a dining room with multi-fuel stove and convenient study.
The former shop has been converted into an attractive living room with large window, replicating the original frontage, high quality wooden flooring, large fireplace with multi-fuel stove and wooden feature wall.

On the first floor a long hallway runs the length of the property with all first floor rooms leading from it. A staircase rises from a secondary ground floor entrance providing the opportunity to separate the first floor into two sections to create secondary accommodation.
The main bedroom is an attractive double bedroom with beamed vaulted ceilings with inbuilt wooden wardrobes. Four further double bedrooms provide plenty of space and versatility to be used as family and guest bedrooms as well as additional purposes such as a gym or further office.
Two well-appointed bathrooms add practicality for a larger household. Both benefitting from a shower over bath, one of which is a large corner bath with vaulted beamed ceiling.
Outside, to the rear of the property is a garden largely laid to lawn, bordered by a small selection of shrubs and attractive stone walling with a wooden summerhouse and patio area to the rear of the garden.
The property is located on the outskirts of the popular village of Spaxton which itself benefits from a strong sense of community with church, primary school, award winning community shop and cricket club. The village is close to the Quantock Hills and Hawkridge reservoir providing plenty of opportunity for walking, riding and cycling.
