This striking Georgian residence occupies a quaint countryside position in the rural community of Stolford, around seven miles to the northwest of Bridgwater, and is very close to the coast and Steart Bay which is well known for its bird life.

The nearest amenities can be found in the pretty village of Stogursey, and Combwich is also nearby. The attractive property is set within 10.6 acres of land which includes stables, an all-weather flood-lit ménage, and various outbuildings.

This Grade II listed residence was once a farmhouse, believed to have been constructed in the late 18th century. The two-storey property was carefully restored in the late 20th century and retains much of its original character such as its double-fronted design, bay and sash windows, high ceilings and central door with a leaded fanlight.

Inside, the house is presented in excellent decorative order and exudes a timeless elegance. The modern additions to the property add a good level of comfort and blend well with its age and original style. Beyond the bright entrance hallway, there is a well-proportioned lounge with a dual aspect and a feature fireplace, while the sitting room is equally pleasant and also has a focal fireplace. The kitchen has a classic country look and is fitted with cream shaker-style units, contrasting quartz worksurfaces and several integrated appliances. A study, utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor.

A turning staircase leads to the first floor, where an impressive first-floor landing provides access to four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom benefits from having an ensuite shower room.

Outside, mature grounds exceeding 10 acres surround the main property. This large outdoor space features lawned gardens, a field laid to pasture, a menage, a mature orchard and a pond which is a haven for wildlife.

Several outbuildings sit within the grounds including a traditional stable block with six stables, a tack room and store, a triple garage and a summer room. There is a metal framed barn that has planning permission to convert it into a dwelling.
