Delightful cottage twixt two lovely villages…..
North Curry is generally held as one of the most respected villages in the Taunton area. With its charming array of picture postcard cottages surrounding the village green, perched just above the magnificent Somerset levels and with a thriving community spirit, it’s not surprising property in this vicinity commands a princely premium. A couple of miles up the road lies the neighbouring village of Stoke St Gregory, equally close to the wonderland of the levels together with that all too rare these days, community bond.
In between the two settlements and almost tying the two together, is the hamlet of Meare Green. Taking a drive, or long, leisurely stroll along the route is sure to prove a head turning experience for any connoisseur of property. No two places are the same and some are remarkably different. Were it that the land were barren and a planning application were submitted for the construction of the present collection of property which has evolved over countless years, it would surely be turned down flat whilst perhaps even sympathetically smiled at, by the already mega fussy town planning committee.
There are a myriad of individual cottages, farmhouses, stone houses, brick houses, cob houses, wagon houses, barns, barn conversions, bungalows, shacks, modern detached houses, modern semi detached houses, modern bungalows and older bungalows, There are large plots, small plots, beautifully tended gardens, ramshackle gardens, gardens full of farm implements, orchards, allotments, paddocks and pastures. Having provided that multifarious list, you’d think the area would present itself as an eyesore. It doesn’t. These properties and places blend harmoniously together, providing a unique and most interesting scene.
This overview leads us to announce the introduction to our portfolio of one such unique homestead, in Meare Green, almost equidistant of the two village centres. Fairview (full details on this site shortly) is a semi-detached, double fronted, red brick cottage built in the Edwardian era around 1910. A warm and welcoming home for the present owners for more than 30 years, it now seeks new custodians. It’s surprisingly spacious and oozes charm with many authentic features and compact, pretty gardens, adjoining open fields to the rear.
Although it has an inseparable neighbour, similar in appearance, Fairview offers a valuable bonus in the form of a separate enclosed garden area with no end of useful potential to be exploited. All in all, this a splendid opportunity to enjoy life out in this fascinating patch of the county. These places don’t come up for sale too often, when they do, they don’t hang about for long.
