Property Description

This exceptional four-bedroom detached home presents a rare blend of residential comfort and work-life potential (subject to consents). Tucked away behind double gates, it features a substantial two-story outbuilding, a purpose-built double garage and office, and extensive parking.
The private, level gardens set in 0.6 acres offer views of both the Blackdown and Quantock Hills. With its first-time market appearance in nearly 27 years, this property offers so much and is ready to embrace its next chapter.

On our first visit to The Firs we fell in love with the house and the surrounding views.
We love the privacy, security and freedom it gives us, once home we can forget the rest of the world.
We have happily lived here for 27 years & we have had the best times with our family & friends who never want to leave once they are here!
The house is surrounded by field & hills & we have a wonderful small village 5 minutes away.

Dating back to the 1920s, The Firs has evolved over a century to offer adaptable living spaces tailored to the needs of multi-generational buyers. The heart of the home features a spacious open-plan dining room with an archway leading to the main sitting room. Designed with two sets of French doors opening onto the rear gardens and an oak-framed veranda, it maximises the stunning southerly aspect and views of the Blackdown Hills. Adding warmth and ambiance, a wood burner ensures the space remains inviting even on colder days and an air conditioning unit to ensure that it stays comfortable on the hotter days.
An additional living room can be used as family/games room with hand-built bar area providing a great opportunity for entertaining. A well fitted kitchen breakfast room has views to the front across to the Quantock Hills with range of modern units and space for breakfast table. A large double bedroom on the ground floor has generous dressing area with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. There is also a large well fitted bathroom on the ground floor.
The first floor living space provides three additional bedrooms, one being a generous double with air conditioning unit, there is another double and single bedroom (with restricted height) along with family shower room. Most rooms on the first floor have access to eaves/storage space and a Velux window.

Remote controlled double gates open onto the private enclosed grounds of around 0.68 acre of carefully landscaped gardens designed to ensure maximum enjoyment during summer months. There is a substantial parking and turning area with central water feature and patio/terraced areas. Views to the front look towards the Quantock Hills. To the side and rear of the property and designed to make the most of the southerly aspect can be found an oak framed veranda and adjacent is an outdoor kitchen/bar area and greenhouse. A well maintained and manageable swimming pool has a beautiful water feature and is heated and filtered by a unit in a shed tucked away to the rear.
Additional log store, stores and workshops provide ample storage.

The presence of two distinct outbuildings opens up a range of possibilities. The Coach House, a substantial two-story structure, has a history of being used as a cattery and later a food preparation area. While no consents have been secured for change of use, the potential for diverse applications is substantial. Currently outfitted with a range of kitchen units, complemented by additional amenities such as a store room, shower room, utility, and toilet, it offers a versatile space. Upstairs, a generous studio room provides potential for creative pursuits or additional accommodation (subject to any necessary consents).
Adjacent stands the purpose-built double garage, accompanied by an adjoining office/workshop. Complete with a roller door, power, and lighting, this space caters perfectly to the needs of motor enthusiasts or those seeking a dedicated workspace. Whether tinkering with vehicles or pursuing other interests this well-equipped facility offers boundless opportunities to fulfil your passions.
