A Country Home in Somerset...

Ever thought of living in Somerset? 
A little place, tucked away in the beautiful English countryside?
A place to write, paint, cook, dream away the days?

Here you go...

The Realtors at Jackson-Stops & Staff refer to this home as an enchanting 
period house set within beautiful well stocked gardens enjoying far reaching 
country views. It seems that every house in England has a name, 
this one is called Four Gables. The house boasts eight bedrooms, four bathrooms, 
six reception areas and a separate two bed cottage.
I envisage many a weekend filled with family and friends in this lovely spot.

Well stocked mature south facing gardens, streams, pond, 
small copse, kitchen garden, glasshouse.. need I say more?

The home is within a mile and a half of the village 
of Nicholas St. Combe with its post office, village stores, public house,
Church and primary school. I nice distance for a bike ride. :)

The principal rooms are said to enjoy glorious views. 
The house has so many features that the mind boggles. 
You can read them here.

For keen gardeners, you should know that Four Gables is set
 in beautifully stocked and timbered gardens with springs and well. 
The gardens lead to the pond which is shaded by a magnificent oak and has 
weeping willow and two rustic bridges covered with wisteria.

The small copse has a number of conifers, silver birch and maple and 
has an under canopy of tree peonies and other flowering specimen trees.
The west facing kitchen garden sits near an aluminum framed glasshouse.

The land is manageable...0.45 hectares (1.12 acres).
Perfect size if you ask me.

I can't stop thinking about that view...it must be wonderful.

Do you have a perfect house in mind?
I am still thinking on mine, I call it 'The Someday House'.. here.
