A most impressive and beautifully appointed two bedroom conversion in an idyllic rural, yet accessible location in this historic country estate. THE PROPERTY Situated on the edge of this historic and medieval country estate, number 14 The Cottage is a most impressive and beautifully appointed conversion in an idyllic rural yet accessible location. On first entering the property there is a real sense of charm, space and light, with a large hallway with pretty stone flooring. To one side of the hall is a fantastic and surprisingly large sitting room which is perfectly proportioned and boasts fantastic countryside views. To the other side is a truly fabulous open plan kitchen and dining area, which is quite simply 'as good as it gets.' This also boasts magnificent stone flooring, with a large number of wall and base units and an Aga (cream.) There is plenty of room for a dining/kitchen table and even a separate sitting area with direct access to the courtyard, ideal for al fresco dining. On the first floor are two very large bedrooms with high ceilings, one with an en suite bathroom and one with an en suite shower room. Between the two bedrooms is a large, light landing. The property forms part of a sympathetic conversion of this 13th century former country estate located in an elevated position with far reaching views over undulating countryside of Somerset and Dorset. The delightful private courtyard is a wonderful and peaceful sun trap and very manageable. The property, in common with the other properties at Henley Manor, has the right to use the all-weather tennis court. To the rear of the property is an allocated car parking space as well as visitors' parking. All in all, this is a wonderful primary or secondary home in an idyllic yet very convenient location. LOCATION Henley Manor originally formed part of manorial land retained for private use by the Kings of Wessex and following the Norman Conquest the Manor came into the possession of William the Conqueror. Since then it was mainly in the ownership of four families - Montagu, Wyke, Henley and Poulet. The Manor was owned by the Poulet family for 200 years until it was purchased by ICI in 1945 and became functional office space. In 1999 the Manor, the farmhouse and all the surrounding farm buildings were bought and converted to a high standard for 21st. century living. Each dwelling is a privately owned freehold residence, subject to covenants which ensure an agreeable peaceful environment. Situated on Somerset/Dorset border, with views across to Dorset's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Henley Manor Estate is situated in the small hamlet of Henley near the village of Misterton, which has amenities including a primary school, pubs, a sports and social club. The village has good road links, with the A303 less than 20-minute drive and just over half an hour to the M5. Crewkerne's mainline railway station with a regular service to London (Waterloo) is just 1.4 miles away. The fine market town of Crewkerne is just 1.5 miles and has a good range of high street and independent shops, supermarkets including Waitrose, cafes, restaurants and pubs and leisure facilities including a leisure centre and swimming pool. 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. Under 15 miles away is the stunning Jurassic coastline with many pretty coastal villages and towns, including the elegant resort of Lyme Regis with its attractive Cobb harbour and beaches.
