Lovely Views towards Dunster Castle and Conygar Tower
No Onward Chain
This lovely detached house is a railway enthusiasts dream home, being the former Station Masters house at Dunster. This unique, spacious three-bedroom property sits adjacent to Dunster Station on the West Somerset Railway and enjoys lovely views towards both Dunster Castle and Conygar Tower, with distant views towards the coast. This beautifully presented property was built c.1882 and has recently been refurbished with many of its original features being bought back to life. The well-proportioned accommodation briefly comprises: Entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, utility room, shower room and rear porch to the ground floor. To the first floor are three bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate cloakroom. The property is set within a generous plot with large gardens, off road parking, garden sheds and a large workshop.

Within half a mile of the property is the medieval village of Dunster which offers a host of restaurants, tea rooms and boutique shops as well as a doctor's surgery, post office, news agent and an excellent first school. Easily accessible from the property is Dunster beach and within two and a half miles is the coastal resort of Minehead, known as the gateway to Exmoor, which offers an extensive range of shops, middle and upper schools, a recently opened hospital and three supermarkets. The county town of Taunton is some 20 miles distant and boasts a further range of shops, independent and state schools and good access links to the M5, A303 and a mainline rail link to London Paddington in approximately 2 hours.
