Property Details

Exceptional detached period property set in 3.6 acres of of land with substantial detached workshop/potential annex, garage and outbuildings. Situated in an idyllic rural location between Exmoor and the Quantocks. Viewing essential!

Bosleys Cottage has been extended and improved by the current owners to create a comfortable and stylish family home whilst retaining many original character features. Planning was previously granted for a further extension to increase the size of the kitchen and create a boot room. The accommodation benefits from partial double glazing and oil fired central heating and comprises, on the ground floor – porch, kitchen/breakfast room, utility, inner hall, dining room and a large sitting room with woodburner. The first floor offers a spacious master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and dressing room and 2 further double bedrooms serviced by a family bathroom.

Externally a timber five bar gate gives access to the drive which provides ample off road parking and turning space and in turn leads to the detached garage. The beautifully landscaped gardens surround the house providing areas of lawn, patios and a covered, open fronted linhay perfect for alfresco dining. The whole area has been carefully planted with a wide variety of shrubs, trees and bedding plants, giving year round colour and interest. Beyond the formal garden lies a wonderful kitchen garden complete with raised beds, a fruit cage and a polytunnel. To the East of the house lies a further productive area housing 2 polytunnels and a greenhouse, currently used by the vendors for their cut flower business. Within this area also lies the workshop, complete with double glazing, power, water and a woodburner. We feel this has potential for a wide variety of uses, such as an annex, subject to planning. The rest of the land lies mainly to the South of the house and consists of a paddock, further flower growing area and an orchard. Within the grounds there is a field shelter and various other timber sheds/outbuildings. We believe the whole plot extends to 3.61 acres.

Agents note – there is a footpath running through the paddock and Eastern side of the plot. This was moved by the current owners so as not to run through the garden.

The property is situated in a rural and secluded location between Exmoor and The Quantocks. Lydeard St Lawrence (1.5 miles) has a church, primary school, village hall, cricket ground whilst Stogumber (3.5 miles) offers a village shop, pub, church, primary school and village hall. Williton (5.5 miles) has a wider range of shops, pubs & restaurants, transport links and schooling.

    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.”
