This impressive period residence occupies a secluded plot, in excess of a third of an acre, in the picturesque village of Poldon, on the outskirts of Cossington and just four miles away from Bridgwater.

The property, named Grange Cottage, has been subject to extensive enhancements and renovations in recent years with highly desirable results. Inside, this superbly appointed house has been cleverly adapted to provide an excellent flow between rooms and has lovely fine finishes such as solid oak banisters, cottage-style doors and skirtings.

On the ground floor, the cosy sitting room has fitted shutters around the windows, an attractive fireplace and an archway that leads to a bright garden room with two sets of double doors that open to the large south-facing patio.

The contemporary kitchen/diner has a lovely open layout with an informal dining area. The kitchen is beautifully presented with cream units, granite worksurfaces and several integrated appliances. A formal dining room and study complete this level.

On the first floor, a spacious galleried landing leads to three large double bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom with a bath and separate rainforest shower. From the landing, stairs lead to the principal bedroom with high ceilings, a large dressing room, and a luxury ensuite bathroom.
