The Causeway, Highbridge, Somerset, TA9


4 Bedroom House Sold

Sensitively combining the charm, beauty, and period features of an 18th century country property with contemporary comfort and style, Orchard Cottage is a stunning, warm and inviting home set in over 1.2 acres of landscaped formal and vegetable gardens, with a ‘lakeside’ guest suite, double garage, wine cellar, summerhouse, sheds and greenhouse.
Orchard Cottage has a grade II listing and retains many period features throughout the house, including beams, shutters, and an inglenook fireplace, and is tastefully decorated in neutral Farrow and Ball colours. The hub of the home is the extensive open plan kitchen, dining and living space, which brings this period home into the 21st century providing for modern family living. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke Howdens Tewkesbury in-frame wall and base units with a central island. Integrated appliances include two Liebherr pull-out larder fridges, AEG comfort lift dishwasher, a Frankie boiling water tap, NEFF combination microwave oven, and warming drawer. The Rangemaster Nexus SE is offered by separate negotiation. There is ample space for a large dining table and other furniture in the adjoining living area where, in summer months, the French doors can be thrown open to the garden or, on colder days, the multi fuel stove can be lit to create a warm and toasty heart to this lovely home. Both of the reception rooms, either side of the entrance hall, have stoves, beams, and shutters. A Clearview multi fuel stove is housed in a fabulous inglenook fireplace with exposed stonework and oak lintel in one sitting room, and a Villager log burner in the other. To the rear of the house there is a library with tall fitted bookshelves and rolling library ladder; a useful boot room with plenty of storage and a door to the rear of the property; a shower room with WC; and a laundry room. Three of the four double bedrooms are upstairs, each with its own style and charm, with beamed and vaulted ceilings. The master bedroom has a feature wall of exposed stonework; beautifully fitted wardrobes; clever sets of drawers recessed back into the eaves; and a stunning contemporary ensuite shower room. The other two bedrooms share a bespoke family bathroom. The property is warmed by oil central heating and is on mains drainage.
‘Dragonfly’ is a fabulous one-bedroom independent guest suite, looking out away from the house across the pond and gardens. It has one main living/sleeping area and an ensuite shower room. It is as tastefully decorated and immaculately finished as the rest of the property and offers year-round income potential as a holiday let.

Hidden away behind lush hedgerows is this extraordinary property. The only hint of the attention to detail given to every aspect of this immaculately finished home, inside and out, is when pulling up at the entrance gate with its electronic entry system. The shingle driveway leads to the house in one direction and to a parking area in the other and offers parking for multiple vehicles. The house is situated in the centre of its plot, with stunning level formal and kitchen gardens to the front, mainly laid to lawn with mature borders, trees and shrubs, with the kitchen garden sectioned off, and with a garden shed. A shingle patio area across the front of the house provides plenty of space for entertaining and relaxing. To the other side of the house is the double garage, wine cellar, and annexe. ‘Dragonfly’ is the fabulous one-bedroom guest suite which enjoys a large, decked area overlooking a tranquil pond. Anyone with green fingers will be delighted to find the large Swallow Cygnet greenhouse tucked away in a landscaped rose garden with paved walkways to the side of Dragonfly. This garden is level, laid to lawn and extends to its far boundary. A second entrance provides vehicular access to the land.
