DESCRIPTION The Cobblers is a charming period village house built of stone with a thatched roof and a one bedroom annex. Believed to date back to the 17th century, the house was originally the village cobblers house and shop and has period features and charm throughout. The property is ideally located for easy access to Queen Camel's shops and facilities. Although situated in a conservation area the house is not Listed. The thatch was completely replaced in 2008 with reed which has a life span far longer than the traditional wheat. This much-loved family home has been lived in by the current owners for 20 years and offers flexible accommodation for all the family. A side door leads from the parking area to a boot room with access to the annex and steps down to the entrance hallway with doors off to the kitchen/dining room and sitting room. The kitchen/dining room is a good sized room situated at the front of the house with lots of natural light, there is a beautiful inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and plenty of space for an armchair or sofa making this a nice family room. The farmhouse style kitchen has a good range of free standing units and plenty of space for a kitchen table. A large formal sitting/dining room stretches across the front of the house with a fireplace at either end with a woodburning stove. This double aspect rooms looks out to the front and the rear garden. In addition, on the ground floor there is a downstairs w.c and a utility room. The annex can be accessed from the house but also has the benefit of its own outside door which gives it excellent Airbnb potential. The annex consists of a bedroom, sitting room, shower room, utility and patio area. Upstairs The Cobblers has four bedrooms, two double bedrooms one with a large storage area which could make a great teenagers den or an en-suite bathroom. The master bedroom has build in wardrobes, there is a single bedroom and family bathroom with shower over the bath. On the landing there is access to the attic space for storage.
