Occupying an outstanding position on the lower slopes of North Hill closeby St Michaels Church and enjoying stunning views over the town towards Hopcott, Periton and Grabbist and along the coast towards The Quantocks - a spacious Grade II Listed five bedroom detached cottage of immense character and charm standing in large well tended gardens along with four garages, parking and outbuildings.

The property is assumed to have 16th Century origins with more recent additions in the 18th and 19th Century and boasts a wealth of character features including exposed beams and deep sills. It is commonly regarded as one of the towns 'landmark properties', the cottage has featured in numerous local publications over the years with its varied and deep history and the well stocked south facing gardens have also featured highly in local horticultural competitions. The property has been in the same family ownership since 1912 and is of mainly stone construction with some brick under a mainly slate and part tiled roof. It benefits from part gas fired central heating and part night storage heating and the spacious and unique accommodation is arranged on two floors.

The town centre, sea front and all local amenities are within a relatively short walking distance of the property and of course, the open moorland of North Hill itself is closeby. Many of the renouned attractions of West Somerset, The Exmoor National Park and the rugged North Devon coastline are also within easy motoring distance. Minehead provides good shopping facilities, has First, Middle and Upper schools and has a regular local bus service throughout the year. The West Somerset Steam Railway serves all stations to Bishops Lydeard and there are regular buses serving the County Town of Taunton some 25 miles away which has excellent shopping, leisure and entertainment facilities. Taunton also has direct access to the M5 motorway and is served by a mainline railway station.

Stone Built Store Room/Workshop: 8.26m x 3.65m with electric light and power
Garden Store
Fuel/Bin Store
