About This Property

An immaculately presented three/four bedroom detached house set in 2.1 acres with an impressive outbuilding and stables.


Peace Cottage is an immaculately presented, attractive, large detached property believed to be dated back, in part, to the 19th Century. It is full of character, has well portioned rooms and stands within extensive grounds. There are cottage style flower beds, large areas of lawn, two paddocks and a superb garden room. The property in brief comprises an oak framed porch which leads through to the inviting entrance hall and stairs rising to the galleried landing and first floor. There is a spacious kitchen/diner with many unique features, custom-built matching wall and base units, a Rayburn, a selection of integrated appliances, a striking fireplace with log burner and bread oven. From the kitchen you either lead out into the large, very useful boot room, or up into the good sized utility room which has matching base units and a ceramic sink, and then a door to the downstairs W.C. Also to the ground floor are two beautifully presented rooms, a sitting room with original characterful beams and inglenook fireplace with log burner and bread oven and a home office/bedroom four which has open stone work on one wall, log burner and beams. To the first floor are three spacious double bedrooms. The master bedroom benefits from a built-in wardrobe and a modern en-suite shower room. The further two bedrooms have walk in wardrobes and are served by the very large family bathroom which comprises a free standing rolled top bath, walk-in shower, W.C. and sink. (The current owners have extended the family bathroom to take in an upstairs bedroom. This would be very easy to convert back, if required). The property benefits from double glazing and oil fired central heating.

Peace Cottage occupies a rural, elevated location which lies on the western outskirts of the village of Stoke St. Mary. Beautiful open countryside and woodland walks are close by. The property grounds stand adjacent to land owned by the Woodland Trust. The County Town of Taunton lies four miles away and has a comprehensive range of shopping, scholastic and leisure facilities, together with a number of noted public schools, namely King’s & Queen’s Colleges and Taunton School. Taunton also enjoys excellent communication links with a direct rail line to London Paddington and the M5 motorway facilitating communications to Bristol and the North and Exeter and the South, both hosting international airports.

The property is approached off a quiet country lane through iron electric gates. The driveway is laid to gravel and provides plenty of off road parking and turning at the front of the property. The main gardens lie to the front and side of the property where there is a large lawn area, a number of well established flowerbeds and a selection of raised vegetable beds. There is an impressive bespoke timber framed garden room/studio with vaulted ceiling and generously sized veranda. It is currently being used as an art studio and wonderful space for entertaining. This versatile place has the potential to be used as a home office, gym or even converted to an annexe (which would be subject to all necessary planning consents). Leading to more lawn planted with a variety of native trees, a good sized outbuilding, an area for free range chickens and also space for a wildflower meadow. At the end of the garden is a tranquil wildlife nature pond. There is a gently sloping paddock located behind the property which benefits from two stables and a water trough. The land in total stretches to 2.1 acres.
