This opens out to a living room to the right with log burning stove and on the other side is a dining area with an inglenook fireplace. A door off leads to a spacious living/kitchen/breakfast room with farmhouse style kitchen with an oil fired Rayburn and terracotta tiled flooring. A rear hall, pantry and W.C. completes the ground floor accommodation. Upstairs are four bedrooms with a master enjoying an en-suite, together with a family bathroom.

The Annexe

The accommodation currently provides a dining room, galley kitchen and generous living room, together with a downstairs shower room. Upstairs is a double bedroom with space to create a study area if required. The annexe is ideally suited to accommodate a dependant relative or could easily be used as a home office, gym, workshop or hobbies room.

Mayfield House is situated in the centre of the highly sought after village of West Bagborough which is on the south facing slopes of the famous Quantock Hills, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is direct access to the hills for those with walking and riding interests and the North Somerset coastline and the Brendon Hills are also easily accessible. The village of West Bagborough is within a conservation area and has local facilities which include a popular Inn called the Rising Sun, an ancient Church and a cricket club with a further selection of everyday amenities in the nearby villages of Crowcombe, Stogumber and Bishops Lydeard The County Town of Taunton is approximately 9 miles to the South East and offers an extensive range of shopping and leisure facilities which also include Taunton racecourse and Somerset County cricket club. Taunton is also well known for its excellent schools in both the state and private school sectors and has good communication links through its motorway junction onto the M5 and mainline railway station which has frequent services to London, Paddington and the rest of the country.

The property is approached off the public highway via a pedestrian gate with a path which leads along the front of the house. The gardens here are slightly elevated and are predominantly lawned with a number of well established flowerbeds, shrubs and bushes. In addition is a gravelled sun terrace ideal for alfresco dining and summer entertaining,

At present a timber fence divides the annexe but this could easily be removed to create additional parking and enlarge the garden area if so required.
