A beautifully presented detached country bungalow set in delightful gardens, with a double garage and a unique seating area within a cottage ruin in the grounds.
Roseneath is an attractive detached bungalow which is located in a wonderful country position gaining splendid views to the front, and backing onto woodland to the rear. It is believed to date back to the 1980's and is of traditional construction with brick elevations under a tiled roof, and was extended in the 2000's with the addition of the fabulous living room to the front.
The accommodation has been the subject of considerable improvement in more recent years and is found in very good order, with great care and attention having been given to the fittings and overall finish. It benefits from two beautiful reception rooms, one of which has an oak floor and Clearview multi-fuel fire, as well as a large picture window taking advantage of the views.
The property is approached from the small lane over a tarmacadam driveway which provides parking for several vehicles, adjacent to which is a detached double garage which has two recently fitted doors.
Undoubtedly one of the main features of Roseneath is its wonderful garden which surrounds the property. To the rear is a decked terrace and an area of lawn which is bordered by shrub beds and this backs onto woodland. The majority of the ground lies to the front and comprises an area of lawn which is interspersed with colourful shrub beds and is surrounded by mature trees and hedging.
There is a lower level of garden and a fabulous gravelled seating area which has been created within 'Rainbow Cottage', a detached former cottage which now consists of three stone walls with a fireplace to one end, covered seating area and log stores to the other.
Roseneath is situated in a delightful country position in the tiny hamlet of Biscombe, which in turn lies midway between the villages of Churchinford and Hemyock. It sits amongst some of the county's most attractive rolling countryside within the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are some picturesque walks close at hand over the myriad of footpaths that scatter the area.
Hemyock offers a good range of amenities including school, medical centre, church, post office and traditional pub and there is also a community run farm shop with post office in Chuchinford. The larger town of Wellington is about 6 miles away which offers supermarkets (including a Waitrose) and a range of independent shops. The County Town of Taunton, some 9 miles away, has an excellent shopping centre, great range of restaurants, banks, schools, M5 access and express rail link to London Paddington.
