A beautifully presented Somerset Longhouse of immense character and charm with cottage annex set in delightful gardens. This truly delightful period cottage has in recent years been refurbished to a very high standard and now offers a highly appealing characterful home with all modern conveniences. Worthy of its Grade II Listing the property exhibits many period features including the flagstone hall, pretty leaded light windows many of which have been replaced, beamed ceilings and well preserved inglenook fireplaces. The property offers particularly good reception space with a charming sitting room with inglenook fireplace and a door that leads into a study. The kitchen has been particularly well designed and fitted by John Lewis of Hungerford and includes granite topped cabinets with attractive tiled surrounds and good quality appliances and from which there is access to the David Salisbury designed and created Garden Room which stretches across the rear of the house. The principal bedroom has huge character and enjoys lovely open views. A guest bedroom and two further bedrooms are all served by a beautifully fitted bathroom and a shower room with Fired Earth furniture. In addition to the main house there is a thatched barn which provides intriguing one bedroom accommodation with a lovely sitting room that doubles up as a second bedroom, kitchen area and well fitted shower room. This would be ideal for AirBnB or having friends to stay. Rapps Cottage fronts onto a tiny lane which is found just off the road giving easy access to the A358 and in turn onto the A303 at Ilminster. The property is close to the charming country town of Ilminster that offers a broad range of high quality local shops. Taunton, the county town of Somerset, is a little further away and has excellent shopping with good schools, both in the independent and state sectors, and recreational opportunities including a Race Course and the Somerset County Cricket Ground.
