Call and speak to Forest Marble 24/7 to come and view this stunningly positioned cottage found in a prominent elevated position in the Somerset village of Wanstrow. Boasting two large bedrooms and two reception rooms the house brims with character features including exposed timber beams, original stonework and a spectacular inglenook fireplace which houses a substantial multi fuel burner. Modern kitchen and bathroom compliment the period feel, however outside is where the real charm of this property can be found. The large garden is absolutely perfect for anyone who enjoys spending time outdoors. Whether that be growing your own veg, cultivating shrubs and plants, or enjoying alfresco dining and entertaining friends the tranquil and beautiful countryside surroundings certainly will leave a lasting impression. All this is set on a deceptively large plot with private driveway and parking. There is also real potential to extend here which would allow for substantially increased living space, subject to relevant planning and permissions.

Living Room

From the porch we walk through the wooden door into the characterful living area where we can see the wooden beams, deep windows and open fire place. The room has a cosy feel and is the perfect place to sit in front of the fire on cold winter evenings.

Dining Room

14' 8'' x 14' 11'' (max) (4.47m x 4.54m)

The second reception room again boasts stacks of character, with exposed beams and period style. The real eye catcher here is the stunning inglenook fireplace which contains a large multi fuel burner as well as the original bread oven.


12' 2'' x 9' 3'' (max) (3.71m x 2.82m)

A modern fitted kitchen with a country cottage feel. Solid wood work surfaces over fitted base units, one and a half bowl enamel sink and drainer and bespoke splash backs, complimented by stone floor tiling. Fitted appliances include an electric induction hob with cooker hood over and integrated electric double oven. we also have integrated dishwasher as well as space for white goods such as washing machine and tumble dryer. The views over the garden are a delight and can be enjoyed while you prepare your evening meals. Access to the outside space can also be gained through the single door to the rear.


A recently modernised family bathroom with travetine natural stone tiling to walls and floors. The suite consists of a P-shape bath with shower over, wash hand basin with vanity unit and low level WC. The bathroom also benefits from a chrome heated towel rail.

First Floor Landing

With stairs climbing from the ground floor the landing is flooded with light from the large window to the front aspect which allows stunning panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. From here we have access to two double bedrooms and loft space.

Bedroom One

15' 4'' x 10' 7'' (4.67m x 3.22m)

This is a big dual aspect bedroom, with a newly fitted Velux window to the rear and far reaching views of the surrounding countryside from the front. Although very much in keeping with the cottage feel of the property the room is comfortably big enough for double bed and large furniture, in fact the current owners have expressed the potential here to separate into two bedrooms. Testament to the scale of this room.

Bedroom Two

11' 10'' (max) x 12' 0'' (3.60m x 3.65m)

Another well proportioned double room, with green views over the rear lawn. This bedroom has been recently re-carpeted.


Externally the property sits on a substantial sized plot. A private driveway leads from the lane below to a parking area for multiple vehicles accessed from one end of the garden. The garden itself commands an elevated position and as such benefits from stunning vistas that can be enjoyed as you sit and watch the sun set over a barbecue or whilst watering your plants and tending your greens. Already in place we have a number of outside storage spaces including a greenhouse, a metal storage shed and wooden shed. With outside space to three sides there is huge scope for keen gardeners or people who just want to enjoy the peace and tranquillity that this home has in abundance away from the rest of the world.
