THE PROPERTY

A MOST CHARMING TWO BEDROOM COTTAGE, HAVING RECENTLY UNDERGONE A FASTIDEOUS PROGRAM OF WORKS, WITH A PRETTY GARDEN SET IN THE SOUGHT AFTER VILLAGE OF HINTON ST GEORGE. Michaelmas Daisy Cottage, of pretty Ham Stone elevations under a tiled roof, is situated in the heart of this very desirable village on a quiet no through road. It's position in the street is unique in that it offers a very open outlook to the front with far reaching views, which in turn amplifies the light and space inside. Tastefully renovated throughout and finished in timeless neutral shades, the cottage has retained many period features, to include window seats and exposed wooden beams. The entrance hall, with its custom built bench, provides plenty of space to hang coats and store wellies before entering the main reception room with its impressive open fireplace. This space lends itself to daytime living, with ample room to both dine and relax in. There is a further reception room which could be used as a snug or for formal dining, and this also has a feature fireplace that could take a wood burning stove if desired. The fitted shaker style kitchen with solid wood worktops, utility room and bathroom lie to the rear of the cottage, with a door leading from the utility area out to a small but attractive paved terrace; a lovely spot for alfresco dining. On the first floor, there is a very generously sized dual aspect master bedroom, with a further smaller bedroom, both offering views across the village and to the countryside beyond. The cottage sits in a slightly elevated and set back position from the road, separated by a pathway and green. It boasts a very pretty landscaped rear garden in three tiers, with an attractive paved terrace leading out from the house, with steps up to a good sized lawn with a variety of mature shrubs and trees, with further steps leading to a raised terrace. This area offers the potential for a summer house or garden shed, and provides a great additional space for various uses. LOCATION Despite its old-world charm, this popular village of Hinton St. George has excellent facilities. 'Our Shop' is a community owned and run shop and Post Office with a wide range of stock, much of which is locally sourced. The 17th century Lord Poulett Arms is a superb pub with two lovely gardens. The village also boasts tea rooms, a farm shop and café, allotments, a taxi firm and a recently refurbished village hall which hosts a variety of community events. The fine market towns of Crewkerne and Ilminster are both within approximately 10 minute drive and have a good range of high street and independent shops, supermarkets including Waitrose and Tesco, cafes, restaurants and pubs and leisure facilities including a leisure centre and swimming pool in Crewkerne. The larger commercial town of Yeovil is just 11 miles away and boasts several large 'superstore' supermarkets, out of town retail parks, leisure facilities including theatre, cinema, bowling and leisure centre with swimming pools and a large hospital. Taunton, the county town of Somerset, together with the beautiful cathedral cities of Exeter and Wells lie a little further afield, offering a vibrant array of shopping and leisure pursuits, including fine dining, historic architecture and international sporting events.
