Property Description

Tenure: Freehold

A traditional Devon longhouse on the Somerset/Devon border with a useful range of outbuildings and set in 4.1 acres. EPC: Band F

Dating from the mid 18th Century this traditional Devon longhouse forms part of a smallholding on the Devon/Somerset border in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The property has passed through many generations having previously been part of a much larger estate, belonging to Sir Francis Drake, and a poultry farm in a previous life. Many of the original features such as the beams and inglenook fireplaces are on full display bringing a wealth of character. The current owners have made many improvements and modifications over the years including replacing and extending the roof to create impressive verandahs at both the front and rear of the property. Many other improvements have been made in recent times with replacement of the windows in 2018, a new boiler in 2018 with replacement radiators and a new LPG gas tank.
The accommodation briefly comprises of a kitchen, dining room, sitting room, drawing room and cloakroom to the ground floor with a master suite, 2 further bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.
The front of the property is accessed from the road through double gates and onto a large block paved driveway. There are several outbuildings which can be easily accessed from the drive including the Double Garage, Workshop, Log Store and further Store Rooms (Dimensions can be found on the plans). A further Stable and Tack Room can be found in the paddock.
The delightful formal gardens are at the rear of the property and beautifully landscaped with a mixture of patios, ornate stone boundary walling and well thought out planting whilst enjoying views over open countryside. There is also the benefit of a covered pergola with decked floor.
The total grounds extend to approximately 4.1 acres including the house, land and buildings. The land is predominanty paddock making it suitable for equestrian use or for a smallholder. There is also a generous vegetable garden and the current owners have a duck pond and poultry pens. The property must really be viewed to appreciate the stunning location and views from the top paddock and would suit somebody looking for the good life.

The property occupies an elevated position on the outskirts of the small village of Marsh on the Southern edge of the Blackdown Hills some 6 miles from Chard and about 10 miles South of Taunton. Local amenities including a thriving country inn/restaurant, primary schools in the neighbouring villages of Buckland St Mary and Stockland, and good shopping in both Chard and Ilminster. The County Town of Taunton offers a wide range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities, with a good choice of independent schools, access to the M5 motorway (J25) and an intercity rail link (London Paddington). Both Bristol and Exeter airports are readily accessible and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast is about 18 miles to the South at Lyme Regis.
