This enchanting 2 bedroom home can be found tucked away among winding lanes and cob cottages in a tranquil setting above Minehead old town on the famous historic Church Steps (St Michael’s Church), a short walk to Exmoor National Park and the South West Coast path. It has wonderful views over the roof tops to the rolling countryside.
This cosy semi-detached cottage has recently been beautifully refurbished by the current owners who have created a delightful interior retaining many original features, exposed beams and original slate flooring, finished off with stylish colours and quality fittings.
On entering the cottage you are greeted by an attractive homely beamed kitchen/livingroom with fitted units, a butler’s sink finished off with slate worktops and flooring. The exposed beams have been whitened to give a light and airy feel. At the other end of this room is a gas fired Rayburn that is the heart of the cottage which does the central heating and the hot water. Leading from the kitchen there is a small utility room and cloakroom.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms with wonderful views over the roof tops and a large bathroom.
Outside there is a large well maintained very pretty garden surrounded by soft hedging and stone walling. It is well stocked with herbaceous plants and fruit trees. Immediately outside the cottage there is a large sun terrace and a large garden room that could serve as additional sleeping accommodation or artist studio, games room or office.
If you are looking for the typical English picturesque cottage you will find it here. Not only is it a very pretty and beautifully presented, it is in an ideal location, by the coast and only a stones’ throw away from stunning Exmoor National Park. The West Somerset Steam Railway is based in Minehead and offers 20 miles of heritage railways through stunning scenery. Only just a few miles away lies the beautiful town of Dunster with its famous castle individual shops and the delightful Porlock, both of which have some great traditional pubs
