North Street, Drayton


A charming attached, deceptively spacious 4 bedroom and well maintained property. Originally two cottages with parts dating back to 1750’s, converted into a single cottage in the 1970’s, then further updated in the 1990’s. To the rear of Box Cottage a small pleasant manageable garden mainly laid to lawn with flower borders, paved seating area outside the drawing room and a stone walkway leads to the back door. There is a double garage and parking for at least two cars.

The accommodation comprises entrance hall, beamed sitting room with inglenook fireplace, dining room, modern kitchen/breakfast room, study and utility room on the ground floor, with 4 bedrooms, one ensuite bathroom, shower room and separate WC on the first floor. Outside is a gravelled driveway with ample parking and detached double garage.

Box Cottage is situated in the centre of Drayton, a favoured conservation village between Curry Rivel and Langport. Drayton benefits from an active village community including a monthly farmers’ market in the village hall. St Catherine’s Church which dates back to the 15th Century and The Drayton Arms, a bustling pub, is soon to reopen having undergone refurbishment.

Nearby, Langport has a good selection of shops, a supermarket, bank, post office and doctors’ surgery, Huish Episcopi boasts a successful Academy and sixth form with sports facilities open to the public. Taunton, 11 miles away, offers three very good independent junior and senior schools and also within easy reach are the prep and senior schools at Wellington. Only an hour and a half from the coast. Rail links to London from Taunton and Yeovil.
