About This Property

An attractive 1950’s house which has been extended over time and now provides five bedroom living accommodation, detached log cabin, mature gardens and views of open countryside. No onward chain

This sizeable village property was constructed in the 1950’s and has since been extended to provide a five bedroom family home. The house although well maintained could now do with some modernisation but it has the potential to create a superb village residence. The accommodation in brief comprises an entrance porch which leads to a hallway with stairs rising to the first floor. To the side is a dual aspect living room with open Minster fireplace and opposite is a dining room which backs onto a kitchen and adjoining large utility room with breakfast area, any or all of which could be knocked through to create a large open plan kitchen/diner. Also on this floor is a shower room and access to a 6m long integral garage. Upstairs are five substantial bedrooms and a modern family bathroom, together with a large walkthrough study area. The large bedroom at the rear of the house gives access to the first floor balcony providing beautiful views of the local countryside.

Highfields occupies a central village location, lying at the foot of the gently rolling Blackdown Hills in an area recognised for its high scenic and conservation value. The village itself hosts a popular village pub, church and village hall with the villages of Blagdon Hill, Trull and Corfe close by. Taunton the County Town of Somerset lies a short distance to the north and has an extensive range of recreational, educational and scholastic facilities befitting those of a major regional centre, including the noted public schools of Taunton, King’s and Queen’s Colleges and Wellington within easy reach. Taunton is exceptionally well placed for communication links by both road and rail. The M5 interchange, Junction 25 and the A303 trunk road provides excellent links to the southeast, Wales and the north, whilst the mainline rail link station provides direct access to Bristol, Birmingham and London, Paddington. The cities of Bristol and Exeter are also within an hour’s drive, both hosting international airports.

The property is approached over a large tarmacadam drive which provides ample parking for several cars, turning area and access to the integral garage. The gardens here are mainly lawned and are contained within evergreen hedging and timber panel fencing. A sun terrace adjoins the rear and a dwarf brick wall leads to a further expanse of lawn with herbaceous borders, wildlife pond and garden shed. Also set within the rear gardens is a timber log cabin currently used as a games room and home office but could suit any number of alternative uses.
