THE PROPERTY

A CHARMING PERIOD DETACHED THREE BEDROOM PROPERTY WITH A DELIGHTFUL GARDEN AND PARKING IN THE HEART OF THIS POPULAR MARKET TOWN. THE PROPERTY Tudor Cottage, dating back to the early 17th Century with later additions and justifiably Grade II Listed of historical and architectural interest, sits in a very quiet position just a 2-minute stroll into the heart of the town with all amenities to hand. The property has a highly attractive faade built of coursed limestone rubble and Hamstone with a double Roman pantile roof and brick chimney stacks. Its origins are immediately visible upon entering the central hall, with many original exposed timber framed wall panels and flagstone flooring; this character and charm continues throughout the house. To one side, the sitting room boasts a working inset fireplace, original exposed beams, attractive wooden panelling to all walls, window seat complete with stone mullion window frames. To the other side of the hall is the dining room, which is another beautiful room with flagstone flooring, an original fireplace with woodburning stove and again pretty window seats and stone mullion window frames. Steps from this room lead down into the galley kitchen, with utility to one side, overlooking the pretty gardens, and with access out. A great addition in recent years is the garden room that now provides a great space to relax whilst connecting to the walled garden beyond, with French doors opening onto a lovely dining terrace enjoying midday and afternoon sun. The first floor arrives at a landing area that has been used as a study space, with great views to the Beacon and surrounding countryside. The landing continues revealing two double bedrooms, (one ensuite) a single bedroom and a very good-sized family bathroom. The property is approached via a quiet no through lane, leading into a private driveway with parking for 1-2 cars. There is also a small garage, which is currently used as a store. OUTSIDE The gardens of Tudor Cottage are a delight, the front garden being awarded garden of the year in 2019 and 2023 by Crewkerne in Bloom. To the rear, there are a series of outside rooms, including a walled courtyard garden, used as a dining terrace, a small level lawn with mature border shrubs and a circular fishpond, together with a produce garden area, greenhouse, and potting shed. Finally, there are solar panels at the very back which produce a good income, currently in the region of £1,000 per annum. LOCATION Situated on Somerset/Dorset border, and just 30 minutes' drive from the stunning Jurassic Coastline, the fine market town of Crewkerne has an excellent range of high street and independent shops, supermarkets including Waitrose, cafes, restaurants and pubs and leisure facilities including a leisure centre and swimming pool. There is a mainline railway station to London Waterloo (in 2.5 hours)/Exeter/Bristol. The larger commercial town of Yeovil is just over 9 miles away and boasts several large 'superstore' supermarkets, out of town retail parks, leisure facilities including theatre, cinema, bowling and leisure centre with swimming pools and a large hospital. Taunton, the county town of Somerset, together with the beautiful cathedral cities of Exeter and Wells lie a little further afield, offering a vibrant array of shopping and leisure pursuits, including fine dining, historic architecture and international sporting events.
