There are oak doors throughout, part oak flooring and the property is fully double glazed. The property sits within 1.35 acres of tiered land on the slopes of the Blackdown Hills.

A wide sweeping drive is approached through double wooden gates and leads to a parking and turning area and single garage. There is a stone outbuilding measuring 30' x 15' with a cobbled floor and this would be suitable for a number of uses. The property sits within 1.35 acres of land and is laid to lawn with sitting out areas to enjoy the views.

Agents Notes

The property previously had planning permission for a two storey extension to provide a larger living room with master bedroom en-suite and dressing room over. This has since lapsed, however, could be renewed following discussions with the local authority.


From Taunton head to Ilminster and take the 3rd exit towards Honiton and proceed on the A30 for approximately 3.5 miles. Turn left into Raisey Lane and after half a mile, bear right and the property will be found on the right hand side.
