A beautifully presented detached 'Old Folly' with attractive gardens & carport. Spacious accommodation and situated in a desirable location. No onward chain.

A beautiful detached former 'Old Folly' which we believe, in part, dates back to the 16th & 17th Century with evidence of 1500's Tudor mouldings. There is also evidence of an internal staircase in the Tower and local stories of a Vicar sitting on a platform under the glass lantern roof preparing his sermons 'under the stars'. This glass lantern was removed in the 1940's when buildings were being listed. The Tower of the 'Old Folly' lines up with the 14th Century Church Tower within the village and offers views of the Mendips, Parrett Estuary and Quantocks.

This delightful and fairly unique property has undergone extensive renovation in recent years. During renovations, timberwork was revealed dating a major renovation in the 1800's. The living accommodation was built in the early 1900's and now offers all the modern day comforts you would expect, presented to a very high standard, whilst retaining the charm and character of the property's history.

The property is entered through an attractive hardwood door, covered by an Architect designed porch sat on a slate terrace. The hallway gives access to the ground floor rooms, staircase rises to the upper floors and there is a useful understairs cupboard and airing cupboard. The flooring throughout the ground level is predominantly Oak parquet, with oak flooring in the sitting room and quarry tiles in the utility. The L-shaped sitting/dining room is a particular feature of the property with triple aspect and newly fitted multi-fuel burner. An opening gives access to the well-fitted kitchen with attractive units and wood block work surfaces, along with integral 'Smeg' fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is also a tiled alcove with Range style cooker. From the kitchen there is a useful utility area with stable rear door. Also on the ground floor is a bathroom with Victorian style suite and attractive tiling.

The staircase rises to the upper floor with split level landing and picture window to front aspect. Bedroom 3/2nd sitting room is a lovely light and airy room with French doors opening to the front aspect. Steps lead up to the master bedroom with dressing area and wet room. The second bedroom has 2 porthole windows and a vaulted ceiling with eight cherub faces.

Externally the property is finished to a very high standard with attractive render and striking blue paintwork. To the rear of the property you will find a useful cellar and a large timber shed/dog kennel which could lend itself to a number of uses. The garden here is laid to Astro turf. The remainder of the garden has been landscaped and has areas of lawn to the front and side, raised flower beds with an abundance of matures shrubs and plants. There is an extensive patio area with a timber summer house, currently housing a hot tub which is available by separate negotiation. The property is enclosed by attractive fencing with trellis and steps lead down to a double carport.

This truly is an exceptional property with spacious accommodation and situated in a desirable location. An early viewing is strongly recommended in order to fully appreciate the style and quality throughout.

The property is situated on the edge of the village of Cannington. The village benefits from numerous facilities including shops, church, healthcare centre and public houses. Further afield is the town of Bridgwater which is approximately 3 miles distant with multiple shopping and scholastic facilities along with access to the M5 motorway at junction 23 and 24. The county town of Taunton can be found to the South West facilitating a wider range of retail outlets, also a direct line rail link to London Paddington.
