  • Bedrooms: 4
This 4 bedroom detached Somerset Longhouse (believed to be built early 19th century) occupies a large plot with attached paddock, yard and numerous outbuildings (in all approx 2.5 acres) and is used currently as a small holding (mainly poultry) as well a a substantial family home.

This characterful, detached residence was believed to have been built in the early 19th century and offers well presented, spacious accommodation comprising: entrance porch, entrance hall, sitting room, living room (with inglenook fireplace & wood burning stove), separate dining area, 'L' shaped kitchen/diner, utility room, ground floor shower room, conservatory, study/office, with 4 bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. Further benefits include oil fired central heating, upvc double glazed windows, character features (doors, beams etc), and all fitted carpets are set to remain. Externally the property occupies a large mature plot of approximately 1 acre (incorporating a range of outbuildings, yard & formal gardens) with an attached paddock of approximately 1.5 acres (in all 2.5 acres approximately).


There is B1 & B8 use on an outbuilding in the yard. The current owners use the attached paddock as a small holding with approximately 200 chickens providing on average 55 dozen eggs a week. A spacious family home in good general condition throughout, we would advise an early internal viewing to fully appreciate the considerable benefits of this ideal live/work opportunity.

The property is situated on a country lane between the villages of West & East Huntspill within easy reach of both junctions 22 & 23 of the M5 giving excellent commuting links to Bristol, Taunton etc. The nearby town of Highbridge is a few miles distant with a mainline railway station, major bus routes and an Asda superstore. The coastal town of Burnham on Sea is a further 1.5 miles distant giving a bustling High Street of shops, banks, restaurants, coffee shops etc together with its sea front & Esplanade. The major Somerset town of Bridgwater is also within easy reach of the property (approximately 5 miles distant). Bristol Airport is approximately 24 miles distant.

The property occupies a large mature plot with a pedestrian access from the road and main access via a 5 bar gate from a lane which gives access onto the private driveway leading into the yard and buildings. The formal gardens are principally lawn with some flower borders, vegetable areas, greenhouse, fruit trees. To the rear of the property is a good size lawned area again with some fruit trees, gravelled pathway, exterior lighting, access to the side leading through to the yard.
