Property Description

This charming detached cottage, sits within 0.7 acres of delightful gardens and separate paddock. Surrounded by fields on three sides, and featuring a collection of versatile outbuildings, including a detached barn with a history of planning permission for holiday accommodation, this unique home offers a wonderful countryside lifestyle opportunity.
Located within the hamlet of Meare Green, just 1 mile from Stoke St Gregory and 1.5 miles to North Curry, this property enjoys the best of both worlds. Both villages offer a range of local amenities, from village halls and general stores to public houses, primary schools, and churches, all thriving within their vibrant communities.
Surrounded by picturesque countryside, the area boasts numerous lanes and footpaths, inviting you to explore excellent walking and cycling opportunities.
Despite its semi-rural setting, this property is far from isolated, conveniently situated approximately seven miles from Junction 25 of the M5, 4.5 miles from the A358 connecting to the A303 at Ilminster, and a mere 8 miles from Taunton.

SELLERS INSIGHT
We fell in love with the garden before we even looked inside, with its far-reaching countryside views and plenty of space for garden projects.
Over the years we have added numerous plants, shrubs and trees, and have had a lot of fun hosting large family get-togethers based around the old stable which we turned into a summer seating area.

From the kitchen windows you can look out over next door's pretty orchard which really adds to the countryside setting. There are always birds to look at and from time to time you can find yourself watching a deer quietly grazing whilst you are doing the washing up.

We are so glad we added a log burner to the sitting room and will definitely miss our cosy winters nights in front of the fire.


STEP INSIDE
Re built in around 1848 Leamoor has a charming character with well-planned manageable accommodation with views across the gardens to fields beyond from many rooms. The dining room with bay window overlooks the gardens and a cosy sitting room with wood burner is the ideal place to tuck yourself to relax.
The kitchen/breakfast room overlooks the rear aspect with views across an orchard. Just off this room is a small but useful office with separate door to the front A stable door from the kitchen leads to the spacious utility/boot room, a practical area designed for muddy boots, furry companions, and laundry needs. Tiled flooring throughout ensures easy maintenance, while ample storage cupboards cater to organisational needs.
Completing this ground floor is a convenient connecting shower room and toilet.
On the first floor the two main bedrooms are doubles and enjoy the views to the front across to open countryside. The third, single room overlooks the orchard as does the spacious bathroom with corner bath.

STEP OUTSIDE
Sitting in deceptively spacious grounds of 0.7 acre enjoying an open aspect bounded by fields to three sides. A concrete driveway leads past the barn and then the paddock, finishing in a parking/turning area in front of the double garage.
A former stable has been skillfully adapted to a summerhouse/studio and enjoys views across the paddock to farmland beyond, making this an ideal retreat.
The private established gardens enjoy a wealth of shrubs, trees and bushes along with two wildlife ponds ensuring an abundance of visiting wildlife.
A variety of additional useful outbuildings include, log stores, tool shed and poly tunnel, providing ample space for storage.
THE BARN
Planning permission was secured in August 2018 (Ref: 36/18/0006) for the conversion of a portion of the detached barn opposite the cottage into a delightful one-bedroom, two-story living space, intended for holiday let purposes. While this permission has since lapsed, the potential remains for the creation of ancillary accommodation, subject to obtaining renewed planning consent.
Cleverly designed, the approved plans allow for the conversion of a portion of the barn while retaining ample space for storage in the unconverted area. This flexibility offers the opportunity to tailor the property to suit various needs, whether it be as additional guest accommodation, a home office, or a creative studio space, all subject to the necessary approvals.

Utilities and Services:
Mains electricity, water and drainage. Oil central heating.
There are PV panels on the barn roof
