Set within the heart of peaceful Somerset countryside, this simply stunning family home provides flexible and well-proportioned living spaces, laced with character and charm, which when joined with the 3.55 acre grounds, including orchards, stables and a paddock, offer huge amenity and lifestyle appeal. Grade II listed.

Chandlers Cottage offers a wonderful family home set in gardens and grounds extending to 3.55 acres. The cottage is a 16th Century Grade II listed Somerset Hall House, dating from the late medieval period c1505, with an abundance of original features still present. The modern extension was added in the 1990's, which transformed the living style the property could offer, as it could also provide an area for an annexe or alternatively Airbnb option, but used as is, offers excellent flexible family living spaces. The central cross passage hall provides a highly welcoming space, with the principle reception room sitting off to the left and featuring an eye catching inglenook fireplace with Clearview stove and a gentle range of exposed stone and beam over.

A smart oak staircase leads up to the first floor and further exposed timbers provide a more tucked away 'snug style space'. The family kitchen sits off the entrance hall to the right and offers that open social kitchen, now preferred by so many, with ample space for dining and a large central island. The kitchen features a timeless fitted range of solid wood units, woodblock work surfaces, pantry cupboards, Belfast sink and cream electric Aga. Set alongside the kitchen is a useful utility room, along with cloakroom.

The ground floor is completed with a contemporary sitting room which with the use of traditional materials, seamlessly blends with the main house and with the addition of the bi-folding doors, gives a wonderful second reception room. Set over this section is a bedroom complete with its own bathroom. The main first floor area is centred around a large 'L' shaped landing. The master bedroom suite is a simply stunning room with exposed A frame cruck beams, exposed stone walling to one end and a beautifully finished ensuite. There are two further generous double bedrooms to the far end of the landing, each with fitted storage and set alongside the main family bathroom, again finished to a high standard.

Chandlers Cottage lies in an attractive rural position on the northern edge of the charming village of Edington between the Quantock and Mendip Hills. Situated a short distance from the A39, the property enjoys excellent communication links with easy access to the M5 (J23) providing access to Exeter and the West Country as well as Bristol, the Midlands and the North. The market town of Bridgwater lies just 8 miles to the west with the Roman City of Bath to the north east. Edington village offers a good range of amenities including a post office, store, surgery and active village hall with more comprehensive shopping, sporting, cultural and education facilities found in Bridgwater and Glastonbury. There are plentiful walking, cycling and riding opportunities directly from the property into the surrounding countryside. The village features one of a string of Holy Wells which follow a line to Glastonbury.

Approached Off Chandlers Lane with a drive to the east of the house, leading around to an ample parking and turning area. The formal gardens sit to the rear of the house being part walled and form a lovely private area for entertaining and alfresco dining. The borders set within this garden area offer well stocked seasonal planting. A covered walkway with oak plinths leads around the side of the house, including bi-folding doors, which adjoin one of the newer sections of the property, forming an attractive framework to the space. French doors also lead out from the original section as well, which complete with a utility access, joins this area to the house. A stone built store sits in the corner of the garden.

Off the main drive is a separate gated access to the stables and yard area which offer huge appeal for those with equestrian interests, several pleasant circular rides are on offer locally. The stables have mains water, power and a concrete gated yard. There is also a tractor shed and hay store. The land then heads straight down and away from the property and is quiet and full of wildlife. The orchard has a number of varieties of apple trees and a pear tree and produces a huge amount of fruit. It is also home to many rabbits and deer are also often seen in the early morning.

The lower field offers an attractive peaceful meadow providing a good mix of biodiversity for wildlife and practicality for keeping horses or other animals. It is level and remains useable throughout the winter. It does not flood, being higher than surrounding land and is surrounded by drainage ditches.

The grounds in all extend to 3.55 acres.
