About This Property

GREAT POTENTIAL PORLOCK CENTRE

THE OLD ROSE & CROWN COMPRISES A FIVE BEDROOM SEMI DETACHED COTTAGE OF IMMENSE CHARACTER ALONG WITH AN EXTENSIVE RANGE OF OUTBUILDINGS WITH POTENTIAL FOR FURTHER RESIDENTIAL/COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT, SUBJECT OF COURSE TO PLANNING CONSENT, SITUATED IN THE CENTRE OF THE MUCH FAVOURED VILLAGE OF PORLOCK OVERLOOKING ST DUBRICIUS CHURCH.

The Grade II Listed cottage boasts a wealth of character features including exposed beams, deep sills and window seats and is understood to be of mainly stone and cob construction under a part thatched and part slate roof, with part electric night storage heating, with the accommodation in need of some modernisation/updating. As previously mentioned the property occupies a prominent position in the centre of the village of Porlock with direct access to all local amenities, and is understood to have been in the occupation of the same family since the 18th Century.

Porlock is a charming village which lies between Exmoor and the sea, sheltered by picturesque hills and within the Exmoor National Park. The village has an excellent range of everyday shopping facilities with the quaint hamlet and harbour of Porlock Weir approximately two miles away. West Somerset’s premier coastal resort, Minehead has a more comprehensive range of facilities and is approximately six miles, and the County town of Taunton which has mainline rail connections and access to the motorway network is approximately twenty six miles. For those who enjoy exploring the countryside, the Exmoor National Park, Brendon and Quantock Hills and many other renowned beauty spots of the areas are all close at hand.
