A substantial period farmhouse, Listed Grade II, set within unspoilt countryside yet close to good communications. The Chantry has immense character and charm and is believed to date back to 1316 and was part of a larger estate owned by the Halswell and Paulet families until the 1800s. The Chantry appears detached, however there are two converted barns attached to the rear which have little impact; they can barely be seen and have separate access. This beautifully presented house includes a charming drawing room, with cross beamed ceiling and a formal open fireplace with period mantelpiece and arched alcoves to either side. The dining room found on the opposite side of the hall has a beamed ceiling, blue Lias stone inglenook fireplace and door passing through to the kitchen / breakfast room, where an AGA provides a central point to the kitchen. There is a further sitting room that doubles up as a study with inglenook fireplace, wood burning stove and a beamed ceiling. A traditional old fashioned dairy / pantry provides excellent storage and there is a cloakroom on the lower mezzanine landing. In addition there is excellent storage space throughout the house, in particular an under stairs store room and numerous attics on the second floor providing ample scope for conversion subject to the necessary consents. The bedrooms are all generous size doubles, the principal bedroom being particularly charming with a plastered panel set above the fireplace with the date 1655 leading into a spacious characterful bathroom. The Chantry occupies a peaceful setting along a quiet country lane with charming rural views on the lower slopes of the Quantock Hills, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Endless walking and riding is found on the Quantocks where outstanding views are enjoyed from the heather topped beacons. Good communications are at hand with the M5 motorway at Junction 24 providing fast and easy access to Taunton, Exeter and Bristol and a train service from Taunton offers a fast train service to arrive at London Paddington within an hour and forty five minutes. Bridgwater has good day to day amenities, supermarkets including an M & S food store and sports facilities.
