  • Bedrooms: 3
A delightful rural cottage occupying an elevated position with far reaching views, now in need of some updating. Set within generous gardens and grounds of about an acre.

This fantastic rural cottage is of stone elevations under a pitch tiled roof and dates back some 400 years. The accommodation, which has recently undergone some refurbishment, comprises two reception rooms, a kitchen and utility on the ground floor. Upstairs are three bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Planning consent is in existence for a single storey extension, which could readily be amended to suit, subject to the necessary consents.

The cottage is set within large terraced gardens which contain a well lit, 35 square metre, insulated workshop designated for business use.

Maundown is a hamlet located approximately 1.8 miles from the rural centre of Wiveliscombe in the foothills of The Brendons. Wiveliscombe offers a good range of facilities such as a primary and secondary academy schooling, convenience stores and a health centre while retaining the character of a vibrant village. The county town of Taunton is about 12 miles away where a wider range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities will be found, along with the M5 Junction 25 and the mainline (2 hour) rail link to London Paddington. Exeter and Bristol airports are each about an hour's drive. The surrounding district is one of traditional stock rearing and many attractive bridleways and footpaths are easily accessed. Exmoor is a 15 minute drive away, offering sporting pursuits, surfing, a wider variety of hiking possibilities and of course its untamed, ponied landscape so well loved across the west country.

The property is traversed by a hardened track which meanders past the cottage and workshop to arrive at the extensive top terrace. There is planning consent here for a 90 metre squared workshop for business use. The gardens comprise about an acre, are predominately lawned and contain 24 fruit trees which yielf a variety of apples, plums and pears. A sun terrace, to the south west of the house, affords far reaching views of open countryside along two picturesque valleys. The terraces provide a blank canvas for a gardener whilst still presenting a spacious, rural feel to the gardens as they are.
