Property Details

NO ONWARD CHAIN – MOTIVATED SELLER! Thought to have been built in 1837 and for sale for the first time in 120 years, Laburnum Cottage offers 3 bedrooms, characterful living accommodation, large garden, garage, parking and a detached 325 sq ft workshop – situated in the picturesque hamlet of Woolston, nestled between the Quantock villages of Bicknoller and Sampford Brett and overlooking the West Somerset Steam Railway.

Whilst the property is semi detached, the ground floor adjoining space is the entrance passage to Manor Farm, the first floor adjoining is to the landing of the stairs of Manor Farm. Thus there is little to no adjoining accommodation between the properties.
The property has been incredibly well maintained with recent improvements including a new roof, locally made oak double glazed windows and matching doors, newly painted fascia boards and additional loft insulation. Minor cosmetic upgrades are required but the cottage offers a fantastic opportunity for a new buyer to make it their own. The accommodation comprises, on the ground floor – entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen/dining room, pantry, utility room and bathroom. On the first floor there are 3 bedrooms, one with an ensuite WC.

Externally there is an attractive courtyard immediately to the rear of the property which is turn leads to the main garden which has been landscaped with areas of lawn, vegetable plots, patios and a large range of mature shrubs and trees. The large established vegetable plots make it ideal for those wanting to lead a more self-sufficient lifestyle but equally the garden could be laid to lawn to create a level, easy to maintain garden. The property benefits from side access via a right of way. There is also a covered seating area ideal for alfresco dining and a greenhouse.

Within the garden there is a large workshop with light and power. The workshop extends to approx. 325 sq. ft. and has potential for a wide range of uses such as studio, office, annex or hobby room (subject to planning).

Opposite the house lies a single garage and 1 off road parking space. Off street parking is available directly outside the house and it is an unspoken rule within the Hamlet that no one else uses this space. This would also be an ideal space for a hook up for an electric car charging point.

The property is situated in an idyllic location within the hamlet of Woolston, between the villages of Sampford Brett and Bicknoller. The Hamlet has been wired up for fibre broadband via Airband which should be connected in the first quarter of 2024. The larger rural village of Williton is just 2 miles and offers day to day amenities such as a Co-Op, Spar, Post Office, doctors surgery, vets, takeaways, cafe’s and a small industrial estate offering a range of businesses and services. Taunton, the county town, has a wide range of shopping and schooling facilities and fast road and rail links to Exeter, Bristol and London.

    Happy Customers...

    • “I highly recommend Red Deer Country Estate Agents. I found them to be very professional yet approachable. I would like to thank Zoe in particular for her help and her patience in what turned out to be a longer than expected purchase of my lovely cottage.”

       Diane Bertolatti

    • “Red Deer Country has been excellent; especially Zoe who produced a lovely brochure of the property gave helpful advice and went over and above what was expected to help secure the sale. I would highly recommend this estate agent for their professional, efficient yet friendly approach – the whole team was always helpful. Red Deer are also very competitively priced.”

       Julia Johnstone

    • “When we decided to let our flat, Red Deer were not only knowledgeable but also extremly helpful and flexible. It was their flexibility and willingness to help us in the way we wanted to be helped, that made the whole experience effective and relaxing. With the formalities all dealt with professionally, it gave us and the tenant a firm foundation to build a trusting relationship.”

       Duncan McCanlis

    • “We were very impressed by Red Deer Estate Agents in Williton. Zoe, a Managing Director, made us feel that she was on top of the situation at every turn. Other staff were also really helpful. I can thoroughly recommend this agent who dealt with both our sale and purchase in a very professional manner.”

       Robin Nuttall

    • “Ups and Downs initially, probably the best locally compared to Willkie, GTH, F&S, Webbers. Zoe went above and beyond to help issues with the purchase benefiting both vendor/myself to successfully complete where there were issues with certificates and indemnity insurances wouldn’t work due to renovation. Great experience.”

       Chris S

    • “I engaged with Red Deer to sell my property in April of this year, they were fantastic in advising me how to prepare the property for sale, arranging viewings and setting the price. We completed by the 30th June, Ray and Zoe were on hand throughout to assist and also communicate with the buyer, I was very happy with the service I received and would recommend their service to anyone looking to sell their property.”

       Adrian Fawden

    • “This company has without doubt saved my sanity. Our property was placed on the market at a very reasonable price for a quick sale with another agents March 2020. Red Deer came along in September asked if they could help and sold it by today, but did get 2 other buyers between then and now, who messed them about somewhat and today we completed 3rd time lucky. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they were all very efficient, especially Zoe, who had most of the dealings with us, but also the other staff who leaped into the breach whilst Zoe was on holiday this week. Great company, can’t think of anything “bad” to say at all.”

       Patricia Ward

    • “Excellent customer service, go out of their way to show around prospective buyers.”

       Helen Rollason

    • “Very very impressed with this company. After trying to sell our property with another agent for 7 months decided to try Red Deer without any expectations. They were excellent. Came out. Gave us a detailed assessment of our property made some suggestions and then sold it within 3 weeks.”
