About This Property

Offering the perfect blend of character reception rooms with a modern open plan high specification kitchen family space, and a truly amazing master bedroom suite, this 4 bedroom home sits with orchards to the rear, fields to the front and benefits from beautifully landscaped gardens.

Ghillies cottage originally dates back to the mid 1800s but has in more recent years undergone extensive improvement and tasteful extension to create a wonderful family house. The house is in Lower Wiltown on the fringe of Curry Rivel, a thriving large village set on an elevated ridge with the levels to the North, the County Town of Taunton to the West and the large Town of Yeovil to the East, so offering accessible village life. The popular small market towns of Langport and Ilminster are within easy reach and offer a fantastic range of day to day facilities. The cottage has a lovely living style with two feature reception rooms to the front, both with character stone sections, oak floors and fireplaces with newly fitted
