Property Description

Applegarth is a beautifully designed modern three/four bedroom detached home that has been created to meet the highest Eco credentials and has achieved A-rated EPC 97, ensuring that it not only makes it an incredibly energy efficient home it also qualifies for preferential mortgage deals with some lenders.
Applegarth is so much more than energy efficient, it is a stunning home that has been completed to the highest standards to create beautiful accessible living space that makes the most of the fantastic views across fields to the rear towards the Quantock Hills.
Situated in the village of North Curry on a generous plot of just under 0.3 acre and within walking distance of the village pub, shop and post office. Views to the cricket ground to the front and adjoining open fields to the rear make this a location hard to beat.

Originally the tired bungalow which stood on this site made nothing of the terrific view to the North & West over the field to the Manor and the gorgeous solitary giant Oak tree. Yet every day we now look out on that wonderful panorama. The peace and tranquillity of the location is broken only occasionally by church bells, or, in summer, the sound of cattle lowing. However, birdsong is always there in the background.
The house is a very comfortable, technical marvel, with low heating bills, and all the power, internet, TV and USB points required for the 21st century. Clean modern architectural lines are everywhere, rooms light and bright, providing a flexible living space. Designed for modern living but sadly too far away from family.
We will miss the space, the views, the comfort, the village, the amenities, everything and everyone.

In order to create a highly energy efficient home the owners followed the Passivhaus principles of very high levels of insulation to minimize running costs. Features include the triple glazed windows and doors; mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system ensures filtered fresh air that is warmed in the winter.
In addition to mains gas fired under floor heating with zone thermostats for each room, 11 solar PV panels provide up to 4.25KwH of electric with excess being sold back at 15ppKwH and energy efficient lighting throughout
Designed to be accessible to all, the ground floor living space has a beautiful open plan kitchen/sitting/dining room with French doors and windows taking in the stunning views to the rear. No expense has been spared with solid granite worktops, Mayflower kitchen units, Franke 4-in-1 boiling tap and extensive range of Bosch appliances.
The design incorporates an Atrium ceiling with additional Velux windows with remote controlled blinds and operating system. A utility and adjoining boot room add to the convenience with door directly to the rear garden from the boot room. A fourth bedroom/additional sitting room on the ground floor overlooks the village cricket fields and a large walk in wet room with fully tiled walls and underfloor heated anti-slip floors add to the concept of flexible living.
An oak and glass stair case leads to the landing. The large principal bedroom has been designed to capture the stunning views to the rear over open fields towards North Moor and the Quantock Hills. A second double bedroom overlooks the cricket ground whilst the third bedroom also looks over the front aspect and is currently used as a hobbies/craft room.
The generous and beautifully fitted bathroom has a double ended spa bath, large separate shower enclosure with rainfall head and anti-slip floor.

Applegarth has its own private driveway off Stoke Road as well as the benefit of a separate additional access. A large tarmac driveway provides ample room for parking with an additional area currently used for parking a motorhome with 16a electric point. The detached garage has automatic roller door and is equipped with multiple power points and lighting and door onto the rear garden.
There is level access to either side of the house onto the generous rear gardens with beautiful un-spoilt views across ancient farmland to the North Moor.
Over the last three years the gardens have been carefully landscaped, creating a variety of different areas to enjoy with large patio, secluded zen garden, variety of native trees and additional grassed area that the owners purchased from the landowner. There are multiple external power points, two taps and even an external dog shower attachment providing hot and cold water.

CAT6 internet is available in all habitable rooms plus generous power points throughout the property.
The owners would like to give vacant possession on or after 16th September – Please ask for more information if this is likely to cause problem.
Utilities and Services:
Mains gas central heating (underfloor and radiators)
