A charming semi-detached stone cottage situated in the heart of the Quantock Hills. Attractive gardens, yard/drive with stables and workshop. Additional paddock c. 1.23 acres. Total plot c. 1.48 acres.

Aley Cottage is a beautiful stone family home which in part, dates back to the 16th century, we believe. The property is nestled in a stunning location within the Quantock Hills, the first area of England to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In addition to the family sized and flexible living accommodation that the property offers, there is an attractive enclosed garden with multiple seating areas, pond and vegetable bed. a yard/drive area has the advantage of stables, garden store and workshop and there is a further enclosed garden area for chickens and small animals. The property is further enhanced by a separate c. 1.23 acre field which is just a short walk across a no through lane and accessed across a neighbouring field, with automatic water troughs connected to the mains, hardstanding area, two stables and two field shelters. The property lends itself either to equestrian living, with miles of stunning bridle paths and footpaths from the doorstep/hamlet, or a small holding, or both.

The property has been updated and modified by the current owner and the internal accommodation is very well-presented and briefly comprises; Ground floor, entrance lobby, family room which consists of kitchen/dining/living room with log burner, separate snug, utility and ground floor bathroom. The snug, utility and family room all benefit from underfloor heating. On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. There is a second floor which offers accessible storage space with plumbing and electrics, should someone wish to convert to additional bedroom/living space, subject to any necessary consents.

Aley cottage is a charming home in an exceptional location and must be viewed.

The property stands within the Quantock Hills, an area designated as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty. These hills provide opportunities for walking, riding and other rural pursuits.
