The Old Smithy: The Old Smithy is an individual and interesting 18th Century Hamstone Cottage. Formerly part of a farm, the dairy buildings now form the main house the original black smiths has been retained as a workshop. Needless to say it has enjoyed considerable extension and upgrading! Set in a quarter of an acre of fully enclosed, well stocked and private gardens, this family cottage has a host of character features and lies in a quiet residential area on the southern outskirts of the Market Town of Crewkerne.
The local Hamstone used in the area is a beautiful, rich gold colour and incredibly thickly laid in construction making it cool in summer and snug in winter. The cottage is mainly laid to carpet and enjoys double glazing and gas fired central heating throughout.
The Old Smithy is a family home, providing very spacious, comfortable, family accommodation.
The Garden: The Garden is very private and mainly laid to lawn covering about 1 quarter of an acre to include main garden (ideal for football and cricket!) a children’s garden and a BBQ area (adult dining & sunbathing!). A combination of ground based electric and solar shrub and boarder lighting creates a Mediterranean feel on summer evenings – combined with a gas BBQ, chimera fire and a bit of background heat from the patio heater makes al fresco dining an option for even the freshest of summer evenings.
The BBQ area is a fantastic sun trap, together with the comfortable garden furniture and peaceful surroundings, ensures relaxation for all!
The garden has two small Ponds, mature boarders, apple trees and a variety of evergreen and perennial shrubs which makes this a wonderfully private and spacious area to enjoy outdoor living.
Additional Accommodation: The Folly was originally a garage (situated at the bottom of the drive on the edge of the garden) now converted into a self contained double room with en-suite facilities, double bed, large dressing table, two comfortable chairs, cupboard and drawers. Also with the added luxury of a wall mounted TV with SKY feed from main House. There is a concertinaed door to walk-in wardrobe with hanging space and drawers.
