THE PROPERTY

A fabulous Grade II Listed period family house tucked away in the heart of this popular village with delightful mature gardens, three bay garage, annexe and planning permission for extension. Tucked away in the heart of this popular village and approached via a shared driveway, first glimpses of Garden House are most impressive with its very pretty Ham stone elevations under a clay tiled roof. Justifiably Grade II Listed of architectural and historical importance, the property dates back to the 18th Century. Following a meticulous program of works in 2010, and more recently by the present owners, the property is now presented to the highest possible specifications and is a perfect juxtaposition of old and new with many period features remaining including carved stone mullion windows, stone flagged flooring, original fireplaces, window seats and exposed beams. There are also however many modern additions which make this the perfect family home. On first entering the property there is a real sense of charm and space. One of the most impressive rooms in the house is the absolutely fantastic and newly updated bespoke family kitchen with an open plan sitting room to one side and dining room to the other. The kitchen is quite simply as good as it gets and forms a fantastic hub of the house with a large central island incorporating a breakfast bar complete with Miele induction hob with integrated extraction, with walnut, oak and copper finished units, complete with Miele appliances throughout. There is also direct access to the rear and front garden. Adjacent to the kitchen is a large dining room with very pretty exposed beams and flagstone flooring and even a woodburning stove. In addition there is a cloakroom, a utility room and a snug room. The principal bedrooms are situated on the first floor with a fantastic master bedroom with a woodburning stove, with solid wood flooring and galleried mezzanine bathroom above. The guest room is also worth a special mention with another galleried mezzanine bathroom and there are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The loft has also been very cleverly converted to provide additional living/usable space and provides excellent storage. Planning permission has been granted to convert the outbuilding giving great flexibility for any purchaser. GARDENS, GROUNDS & OUTBUILDINGS At the northern side of the house is a three bay garage block with first floor self-contained flat above, consisting of an entrance hall, large west facing reception room with integral kitchen, two double bedrooms and a bathroom. To one side of the garage there is also a very useful outbuilding with planning permission to convert. The house is surrounded by delightful gardens and grounds, the formal area of the garden lies to the south of the house with tall stone walling on two sides and evergreen hedging providing a delightful and secluded setting of about 2.2 acres in total with lawns and low, clipped box providing a backdrop for colourful herbaceous borders and a herb garden. In one corner is a broad terrace planted with olive trees and on the other side of the garden is an ornamental pond and vegetable garden. To the other side of the house is a large lawned area which is safe for children and animals. There is a beautiful covered outside terrace with lighting, accessed via the utility room. There is also plenty of gravelled parking adjacent to the property. LOCATION The spectacular landscape of this beautiful county is regarded as some of the finest in the South West.
