This detached country residence occupies a position in the small village of Over Stowey, just nine miles from Bridgwater, while the Quantock Hills and a plethora of countryside walks are on the doorstep.

The substantial four-bedroom house benefits from distant views over the surrounding countryside and towards the North Somerset coastline.

The house has been extended at various times during its history and now provides spacious accommodation along with many character features.

Inside, there is a well-proportioned drawing room with triple-aspect windows and an open fireplace and hearth. This leads to a spacious dining room with a full-depth splayed window and exposed stone walling. The kitchen/breakfast room has a traditional country look with wooden units, contrasting work surfaces and several integrated appliances. The ground floor is completed with a bright sitting/garden room with an exposed stone wall, a wood-burning stove and doors to the garden.

On the first floor, a galleried landing leads to the four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom benefits from a dual aspect, a built-in wardrobe and an ensuite shower room. The second bedroom also has an ensuite shower room.

Outside, and immediately adjacent to the house, is a good-sized patio with various mature shrubs and flower beds. Beyond this, there are large enclosed mature gardens laid mainly to lawn with a variety of mature trees, shrubs, a rockery and an ornamental pond. Within the grounds, there is a former stable block which has been converted to provide a space for a home office.

There is also ample parking space for several vehicles.

The property comes with the benefit of no chain.
