A beautiful former Toll House which is full of charm and character. Sympathetically renovated and enjoying fantastic views of open countryside. Desirable village location.

Tollgate House is believed to date back to the 1600's and this delightful former Toll House has been beautifully renovated and restored by the current owners, in the last 3 years, whilst still retaining the wealth of charm and character of the original era.

The property is situated on the top of Wembdon Hill, on the edge of this desirable village and offering fantastic views of the neighbouring countryside.

An extensive programme of works were carried out in 2017 and these include; new gas central heating system, re-wire plus sockets with USB ports, new roof plus felt and batten, damp proof course, re-plastered, replacement Upvc windows and solid hardwood doors, engineered oak flooring, oak staircase and internal doors, 'Howdens' kitchen and four piece bathroom suite.

The accommodation is arranged over 2 floors and briefly comprises; entrance door opens into the hallway with useful cloakroom, oak staircase rises to the first floor with storage cupboard under. The lounge/dining room is a beautiful light and airy room with engineered oak flooring and opening through to the fantastic 'Howdens' fitted kitchen with wood block work tops, built-in dishwasher and space for a Range style cooker (available by separate negotiation). The kitchen benefits from views out to the rear garden and open outlook beyond. A utility room can also be found on the ground floor and offers further units and space for appliances.

The property is approached over a tarmacadam driveway through an attractive timber gate with stone walling to either side. The driveway provides parking for several vehicles. On the edge of the driveway is a working Victorian lampost which is a particular feature. An attractive patio extends across the back of the house and is an ideal spot for alfresco dining and summer entertaining. A low wall separates the lawned area with sleeper and flower beds. There is a timber cabin which would provide an ideal hobbies room or home studio, along with a timber shed, with electric cables available to be connected. The gardens enjoy a great deal of privacy and seclusion and offer fantastic far reaching views of open countryside. A side gate leads to the side of the property which is laid to gravel, for ease of maintenance and all enclosed by stone walling.
