Cossington House is a beautiful and imposing Georgian country house in the village of Cossington, one of the very well served, popular Polden villages between Street and Bridgwater.
The property offers spacious accommodation with three reception rooms, a country style kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, large utility, six bedrooms, two bathrooms and an en-suite shower room, and an impressive hallway with a sweeping Adam style staircase. Furthermore, there are vast cellars with vaulted ceilings beneath the property and a paddock of around an acre.
This Grade II listed property, sitting in grounds totalling approximately 1.5 acres, is set back from the road running through the village, accessed down a private, gravelled driveway with wide turning sweep to the front. From the front of the property, there are views over the garden, paddock, and countryside beyond.
It is from the front that this gorgeous home looks its most impressive with its classical and symmetrical front elevation having a central doorway into the vestibule and in turn, the impressive entrance hall. The impressive staircase dominates the large entrance hall and sweeps up to the first floor where you will find the large landing area measuring over 11m wide. As you climb the stairs, you will pass a beautiful arched window overlooking the pretty courtyard and potager garden.
The property retains many original Georgian architectural features throughout, with high ceilings, open fireplaces in all reception rooms and unusual curved doors to the main bedrooms. There is a good level of storage with large walk-in cupboards on both floors.
The cellar provides further storage areas and could be used for a variety of purposes, including parties or a home gym. It has double doors from the garden, a window for light and ventilation and power sockets. The oil-fired boiler which controls the heating and hot water together with a mains pressure cylinder and immersion heater are housed in one of the six cellar rooms.
To the front is a large area of lawn that is south facing and provides access to the paddock beyond. The front garden is very well maintained and well stocked with a variety of attractive plants and trees.
Further storage can be found in the stone-built garage measuring 6.55m x 4.18m, which has power, lighting, a tap on the inside and outside and an upper level.
As mentioned, Cossington is one of several 'Polden Villages' that are very well served. Within these villages you will find 2 food stores, a garden machinery repair shop, a post office, gym, coffee shop, pubs, a veterinary surgery, doctor's surgeries and primary schools, the closest being Catcott Primary School.
There are some well-regarded secondary schools in the area including the co-educational and independent Millfield School. Bridgwater and Taunton College is also a short distance away.
