About This Property

A beautifully presented detached period cottage set in gardens and grounds of approximately 2.2 Acres and enjoying seclusion without isolation. EPC: Band F

This charming detached period cottage is substantially built with stone and rendered elevations set beneath a tiled roof, is beautifully presented throughout and has the added benefit of not being a Listed property. The accommodation is comfortable and conveniently laid out with a South facing aspect across its own garden and grounds creating a light and airy atmosphere with a wealth of character. The front porch opens into a split level hallway with stairs to the first floor, cloakroom and access to the main reception rooms. The double aspect sitting room boasts a magnificent stone fireplace with inset multifuel stove and then leads into a delightful oak framed garden room with two sets of double opening doors to the garden and steps up to a cosy study. The dining room also enjoys direct access to the garden and the well fitted kitchen benefits from a walk in pantry/utility room which also houses the oil fired boiler. There are three generous bedrooms to the first floor, all overlooking the garden and a modern shower room. Double glazing is fitted throughout and solar panels supplement the hot water. Cottages like this are incredibly hard to find and the sale of Islebrook represents an opportunity not to be missed.
The property occupies a peaceful and slightly elevated position approached from the village lane through double gates that lead to a gravelled driveway/parking area, beyond which is a superb double garage/workshop, block and timber clad, with a large loft area over. The gardens and grounds form a perfect setting for this charming cottage with a mix of formal and informal areas, together with a well fenced parcel of amenity land, through the middle of which runs the former mill leat with crystal clear water, small trout and other aquatic life. The stream also attracts kingfishers, waterfowl and possibly a passing otter. There are sweeping lawns, mature shrubs and trees, well stocked herbaceous borders and two bridges that cross the mill leat and lead through a wild garden with woodland paths disturbed only by the sound of the birds. A paved terrace runs along the front of the cottage and adjacent to the garage is a South facing greenhouse with a peach tree and a useful implement shed. The whole area is believed to extend to an estimated 2.2 Acres.

The property is quietly tucked away in this favoured residential hamlet midway between Chard and the popular village of Combe St Nicholas, surrounded by glorious unspoilt countryside. Chard caters for most everyday needs with major supermarkets, smaller retailers, banks, medical services etc and local amenities include general store, post office, primary school and pub. The County Town of Taunton is some 12 miles to the North and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast about 15 miles to the South at Lyme Regis.
