The property is set within it’s own land, down a long private driveway within rural surroundings, some two miles from the market town of Bridgwater. An adjacent lane sets the property back from the Minehead Road which gives quick and easy access to the surrounding district. Local facilities and schooling are available in the town of Bridgwater and Cannington College and Brymore Agricultural School are within two miles. The M5 motorway Junctions 23 and 24 are approximately three miles away, facilitating communications north to Bristol and south to the County Town of Taunton and the remainder of the West Country. At Junction 24 there is also Sedgemoor Auction Centre being the largest one day livestock market in Europe.

Here an attractive stone wall divides the gardens which lie adjacent to the house and where a south facing decking area can be found, ideal for alfresco dining and summer entertaining. The front gardens are predominantly lawned with a number of mature shrubs and bushes and to the rear are again lawned gardens contained within a post and rail fence.
