This impressive, detached residence occupies an elevated position in the sought-after village of Goathurst, close to Taunton and Bridgwater, and surrounded by stunning countryside on the edge of the Quantock Hills.

The individual, three-bedroom dwelling, named Stoneygate, has a strong kerb appeal thanks to its attractive render and Siberian Larch cladding, and comes with the advantage of having a self-contained annexe.

Inside, the house is finished to a high standard throughout and benefits from an excellent energy rating. The entrance hallway makes a strong first impression with its sense of space and attractive glass panel staircase and leads to a welcoming and spacious sitting/dining room. The kitchen is a particular feature of the property with its range of contemporary units, integrated appliances and large island with a porcelain work surface. French doors open out from the kitchen onto a large black limestone patio.

On the first floor, a spacious landing with a vaulted ceiling leads to three double bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom. The principal bedroom has fitted wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom, while the second bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe.

The house has an adjoining self-contained annexe with an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, a double bedroom and a modern shower room.

Outside, the large garden is landscaped with a lawn, an attractive fish pond and well-stocked borders filled with an abundance of mature shrubs and plants. A pergola is positioned over part of the patio area, providing interest and shade. At the back of the garden, a door provides access to the garage with a room above, which the current owner has turned into a gym. This space could lend itself to multiple uses such as a studio, home office or games room, and there is scope to convert it into additional accommodation, subject to any planning consents.

At the front, a tarmac driveway provides ample parking space for several vehicles and leads to the garage.

The property comes with no onward chain.
