April Cottage was constructed in the mid 1960's under the guidance of a local architect, who subsequently lived in the property for some 30 years. The architects influence is clearly highlighted by the spacious, practical accommodation and the natural flow of the house. Occupying grounds of around a third of an acre with well stocked and mature gardens; April Cottage benefits from beautiful views to the front encapsulating both Somerset and Dorset aspects. The property is approached via a quiet country lane on the south side of Curry Rivel; this enhances the rural and private feel of the property, although the village amenities are still within reasonable distance. The spacious accommodation is light and airy, consisting of 3/4 bedrooms and 2/3 reception rooms (depending on how you wish to utilize the ground floor rooms). There are also 3 bathrooms (2 of which being en-suite), a downstairs W.C and the potential for a further en-suite if required. April Cottage also benefits from ample off road parking, an attached garage, full double glazing and has a modern oil fired boiler.
April Cottage is situated along the prestigious Furlong Lane on the outskirts of Curry Rivel. The village offers a good range of village amenities with General Store, Post Office, Public House, Petrol Station and Sandpits Heating Centre incorporating popular tea rooms and a modern gastro pub to the rear.
