About This Property

Welcome to this remarkable 5 bedroom detached country idyll, occupying a plot approaching 2 acres, with superb living accommodation, parking, detached timber lodge and providing complete privacy, surrounded by open countryside.

We are honoured to bring to market this sensational, unique and breath-taking 5 bedroom detached country home, set in almost 2 acres of mature and beautiful grounds. In brief the property comprises a dining room, utility, WC, sitting room, study and kitchen/dining room to the ground floor with five bedrooms (one ensuite) and a family bathroom to the first floor. This majestic home has been improved significantly by the current owners to provide charming and characterful accommodation with everything one could want from modern-day living. The expansive, triple aspect kitchen/dining room is the perfect space for family gatherings and entertaining with French Doors giving access to the garden. The dining room is currently utilised as a snug, a romantic and intimate spot to enjoy through the colder months, particularly given its inglenook fireplace and wood-burner. The sitting room is bright and airy with exposed oak flooring, wood-burner and a further set of French Doors leading outside. There is a designated study which will appeal to those who need to work from home and a utility room and WC make up the more functional elements of the ground floor. To the first floor all the bedrooms are well-proportioned with four benefitting from built in wardrobes and the master having the luxury of its own ensuite and wonderful views over the gardens. In addition to the main residence is a large, detached, timber lodge which has been designed as a home office and is therefore set-up and ready to go should someone want to continue its use in this way. That said, such is the foot-print, it would be ideal as ancillary accommodation or a holiday let, subject to the necessary consents. Round Oak Cottage will prove a highly attractive proposition to families and those looking for romantic and idyllic rural living. Quite simply, a must-see.

Isle Abbotts is a small village situated some 5 miles north of Ilminster, set in the heart of rural Somerset, surrounded by open countryside with access to all local towns with their shopping facilities and amenities. The former market town of Ilminster lies approximately 5 miles distance and enjoys a good range of shopping facilities together with schooling at primary and intermediate levels and churches of various denominations. The county town of Taunton lies approximately 12 miles to the west and enjoys a more comprehensive range of retail, leisure and scholastic facilities to include three native public schools, Somerset County Cricket Club and The Brewhouse Theatre. Taunton is well connected with a direct line rail link to London Paddington, motorway access at junction 25 of the M5 motorway and international airports at both Bristol and Exeter.

The property is approached via a private driveway giving access to off-road parking, garage, lodge and main residence. Occupying a generous plot of almost 2 acres, the grounds are utterly sublime. The outside space has been perfectly crafted and compartmentalised to maximise the surroundings. Directly to the rear of the property is an area of gravel and raised decking, offering a romantic spot for alfresco dining and entertaining and complemented by a plethora of potted plants and colourful flora. Beyond this is a covered patio area with hot-tub to boot and a manicured area of lawn with central pagoda – an enviable and secluded setting to while away the summer days. The remainder of the grounds meander seamlessly into mature gardens, open orchard and wild-life garden as well as a designated duck pond! As gardens go, this is as close to paradise as you are likely to get - offering complete privacy and an amazing haven for child’s play and keen horticulturalists.
