A most impressive detached house, offering accommodation with a great degree of space and flexibility, as well as exhibiting a host of retained character features, situated on Bridgwater's popular west side and within one mile of the town centre. This spacious, individual residence would be suitable for those with a larger family, or indeed, for those looking to run a bed & breakfast or guest house business (subject to obtaining any necessary consents).
An entrance porch, with leaded light windows and tiled flooring, leads into the main entrance hall. From here a turning staircase provides one of the two accesses to the first floor, as well as to doors to the sitting and dining rooms and cloakroom/w/c. In addition an opening leads to the second set of stairs to the first floor, as well as to the breakfast room. The sitting and dining rooms are both of a good size with high ceilings and impressive fireplaces, cornicing and ceiling roses. The sitting room also features twin French doors, which lead outside. Off the dining room is a walk-in storage area. The breakfast room provides another access outside, as well as to the kitchen. This has been recently refitted with a wide range of wall and base units and a number of clever storage systems. Off the kitchen is a utility room. On the first floor, the landing, with a most attractive stained glass window, provides access to six double bedrooms and a study. The master bedroom has a dressing area, as well as an en-suite bathroom/w/c. There is an additional family bathroom with a separate w/c. The five remaining bedrooms all have wash hand basins, one also having a shower cubicle.
Outside, the gardens are predominantly arranged to the front of the house, retaining a good degree of privacy and include a 'secret garden'. Parking is provided for a number of vehicles. There is an outbuilding, previously used as an office, now for storage. There is also a detached coach house. The first floor of which is currently used an office, the ground floor, divided into three storage areas, as well as having a w/c. In 2012 planning permission was granted for its demolition and for a replacement two story, four bedroom house to be erected in its place. Reference 08/12/00162. That planning permission has now lapsed, but we see no reason why a fresh application would not be successful today.
