Property SummaryA dream come true for someone wanting a pretty, fully renovated cottage in a peaceful rural location, but close to an active small town.
The Farmhouse is reached via a quiet lane with little traffic. A partially shared driveway leads to the foot of an ancient woodland where this very attractive cottage is located with fabulous views.
Unusually for a Grade II listed medieval property, this cottage has been re-thatched (using water reed which has a long life expectancy) and was totally renovated 6 years ago. The Farmhouse is the middle section of the original Nightingale Farmhouse and the whole property was rebuilt to a very high standard. Thus the property is full of character such as flagstones, beams, an inglenook fireplace with wood burner, window seats, together with the benefits of new oak floors and doors, double glazed windows, modern kitchen with electric Aga and a modern bathroom.
This property is perfect for easy living. The house is like new and the gardens both front and back are very easy to manage. On arriving at the property you will first see the double garage and parking which leads to a gate in to the south facing main garden which is mainly laid to lawn with apple and apricot trees and flower beds full of roses, lavender and honeysuckle. There is a large terraced area for al fresco dining. The woodland that the garden looks up to is Bere Wood which is part of the Somerset Wildlife Trust, so the area is a wildlife haven for deer, buzzards and cuckoos and there are otters in the local river. The garden at the back of the property faces onto mature trees and a small pond which are all part of the old farm.
Please note that in the photos the property looks L-shaped, the part to the right is the neighbour.
Bere Aller is a tiny ancient hamlet and the previous owners of Nightingale Farm now run a little cider farm close by which also serves as the local farm shop where you can buy eggs and cheese. Aller is a popular village in lovely open country with a pub, church and village hall. There is a local vineyard that offers tours just down the road.
The popular town of Langport is just a few miles away with its thriving cafes/restaurants, artisan bakery, butcher, award winning Langport Stores (http://www.thelangportstores.co.uk/) as well as a supermarket, pharmacy, vets and a number of other independent shops. There is excellent walking, riding and cycling in the surrounding open countryside and as well as Roman remains and the Battle of Langport was fought in 1645 during the Civil Wall and referenced in the Domesday Book. The icing on the cake are the lovely walks along Cocklemoor river where you can hire boats(https://www.langportboathire.co.uk/). In September there is the fabulous Langfest (ehttps://langport.life/council-news/langfest-2019-meeting/) that goes on all weekend.
In Addition there are several good golf courses nearby and a thriving tennis club at Somerton. The motorway is only about 10 miles away as is the A303.
There are excellent state and independent schools including Millfield, Sherborne, Hazelgrove, Leweston, Bruton, and Taunton School. Sixth Form colleges at both Richard Huish, Taunton and Strode College in Street.
