Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
A detached two bedroom bungalow with scope for enlargement (STP) together with garage and approximately 4 acres of pasture land now in need of modernisation.

This well situated bungalow is believed to date back to the 1940s and is of red brick elevations under a pitch tiled roof. The accommodation, which is now in need of complete modernisation, comprises an entrance hall, two good sized bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, utility and family bathroom. The potential exists to extend the property, subject to the necessary consents, to make a superb family home. In addition to the house are lawned gardens, a detached double garage and approximately four acres of level pasture land. The property is ideally suited to those with agricultural, equestrian or other amenity interests at heart.

The property occupies a delightful and readily accessible rural position set back from the Taunton to East Lyng road on the outskirts of the small hamlet of West Lyng. The Taunton to Bridgwater canal adjoins the land and provides excellent dog walking. The nearby villages of East Lyng and North Curry are situated about 2 miles to the east and south east respectively, both affording popular public houses and thriving local communities, with the latter also providing a general store, post office and health centre. As the county town Taunton offers an extensive range of commercial and recreational amenities, befitting those of an important regional and administrative centre, with representation by most national stores and a wide range of leisure and sporting facilities. Excellent educational opportunities are available from both state and private establishments. Access to the M5 motorway is available at Taunton (J25), as well as main line rail connections, including a fast rail service to London (Paddington). International airports are available at both Bristol and Exeter. The property is well positioned for access to the surrounding districts with the environmentally renowned Somerset Levels to the east, whilst to the north and south lie the Quantock and Blackdown Hills respectively, both now designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offering an abundance of foot and bridle paths.

The property is approached off the public highway via a timber five bar gate which leads to the rear where there is a detached double garage and a car parking and turning area for several vehicles. The gardens surround the bungalow and are predominately lawned, interspersed with a number of mature trees. Adjacent to the gardens are two enclosures of level pasture land with separate road access, perfect for grazing livestock or other amenity uses.
