An unusual and versatile partly period, spacious house with modern additions, with the benefit of well organised pasture, stabling and storage comprising more than two acres in all. The property is situated on the edge of the village of Tatworth amongst other residences and within a mile of the local primary school and just a little further to the village shop/post office. We understand that the original house dates from the mid 1800`s with alterations having been made through the years to provide the two storey accommodation that now exists. The majority of the rooms are on the ground floor with two staircases to separate first floor rooms. The first floor comprises a master bedroom with lovely far reaching views, with a large walk-in wardrobe/dressing room and en-suite shower room. The second (separate) first floor area is a large loft room/occasional bedroom with slightly restricted headroom but there is potential for further improvement (subject to permissions). At ground level there are a further two double bedrooms and a shower room, a study, a large dining hall with small conservatory off, spacious farmhouse style kitchen with Rayburn and a lounge with multi-fuel stove. Outside is where the property becomes most exciting with a large gated yard offering extensive parking, double car port, former stables, which are now used as workshop and storage, behind which is a barn with roof height sufficient to provide covered storage for a motor home or farm vehicles and a gate to the side which gives vehicular access to the fields. The pasture land slopes gently away from the house and is well fenced all around with post and rail fencing. Half way down is a large hard standing where there are three further timber stables and hay store. Around the perimeter of the fields a path leads right the way around for ease of access and leads finally to a lower wooded area with a small stream as the far boundary. There is also a good sized garden near the house, which overlooks the paddocks as well as a small enclosed front garden with side entrance. This is a delightful parcel of land most of which is quite private and the whole of which has a lovely outlook.

An arch in the hedge with a pedestrian gate gives access to the property from this side. Further along is a large metal gate providing vehicular access to the yard, stables and parking. The garden immediately adjoins the house, where there is a patio and a good sized area of level garden interspersed with some very pretty specimen trees, amongst them, Magnolia, Copper Beech, Mulberry, a few exotic plants and flowering shrubs. There is a timber gazebo overlooking the paddocks.
To one side is a curving path and a flower bed leading to a picket fence and gate into a small secluded area beside the utility room, which provides ideal space for a washing line. This leads on to the side access to the house.

PADDOCKS AND LAND
The paddocks are gently sloping, well draining and enclosed by post and rail fencing. A small private footpath leads all around the outside of the paddocks providing pedestrian access to each field and to the woodlands below. There are gates into the fields at various points and vehicular access is available to all of the land and the lower hard standing and stables, where there is ample parking space for a horse box. Beyond the hard standing is a pretty grassy section with a Weeping Willow and a small pond. A gate from here, leads down through the woodlands where there is a small stream at the lower level, which denotes the far boundary of the property.
LOWER STANDING WITH STABLES
Beyond the first paddock, there is a good sized level area of hard standing, where there is ample parking space for a horse box. Part of this has been post and rail fenced and within the fenced area are two stables and a hay store with measurements as below. This hard standing was formerly a tennis court and makes a good turn out area (or possible menage).
