Tamlyns are delighted to offer to the market this characterful house in the popular village of Spaxton. Part of this five bedroom property was once a village shop and Post Office, and therefore forms part of the history of this sought after location.
The property has been extensively modernised and improved by the current owners, including the integration of the former shop into the living accommodation, creating a large home. With three reception rooms, study, kitchen, utility room, toilet and store on the ground floor, with five bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first, there is no shortage of accommodation. Stained oak beams and door frames, as well as fireplaces housing operational multi-fuel burners in three reception rooms create the theme of this house. The blend between this original character and modern decor is the most desirable feature of the property.
To the front of the property is a driveway providing parking for three cars, with a separate garage best described as a one-and-a-half size single garage. From the driveway the front door leads into the first reception room, currently used as a dining room. This room benefits from an attractive brick fireplace with operational multi-fuel burner. An integrated drinks cupboard and serving hatch to the kitchen are both further features as well as useful practicalities.
From here are two further reception rooms. One, down several steps is currently used as a play room and would be equally suited as a snug or sitting room, with its own fireplace and multi-fuel burner as well as large storage cupboard currently used as a children’s den. The focal point of the ground floor is the large living room, the former shop. This room again benefits from a large fireplace and multi-fuel burner, with wooden clad wall, underfloor heating and large window and door to the side.
The kitchen consists of wooden base and wall unites with worktops, inset stainless steel sink and electric cooker and hob. A breakfast bar separates the kitchen from the utility area with space and plumbing for appliances. A large skylight makes a significant impact in making the kitchen a particularly pleasant space. From the utility room are both a w/c and further walk-in store. A door leads to the rear garden.
On the first floor a long landing gives access to all rooms. The master bedroom benefits from a full range of integrated wardrobes, skylight and a real focal point being the stained A frame beams. Three further doubles provide ample bedroom accommodation while the fifth and final bedroom is a large single, currently used as a dressing room. There is from the driveway a separate doorway leading to a staircase to the first floor. Given the accommodation on the ground floor this creates opportunities for annexe and/or multi-generational living, or the opportunity for room rental or B&B income. Two family bathroom suites add excellent convenience to the house.
The rear garden is accessed from the utility room, largely laid to lawn with patio at the bottom of the garden.
The property is situated on the edge of the especially popular village of Spaxton, which itself benefits from a primary school (with an Outstanding Ofsted rating), pub, church, award winning community run shop, village hall and cricket club. The village sits in a tranquil setting in the foothills of the Quantock Hills, an Area of Outstanding Beauty. Bridgwater is just ten minutes away and offers a large range of independent and chain supermarkets and shops as well as secondary schools and leisure and sporting facilities as well as motorway and rail links. The county town of Taunton is less than half and house away and offers further amenities of all kinds, reputable independent schools and a mainline rail link to London Paddington in less than two hours.
To reach the property from Bridgwater, proceed away from the town centre on West Street in the direction of Durleigh and Spaxton. Follow this road until you reach the village of Spaxton. Upon passing the sign welcoming you to the village, pass over a cross roads and the property will be seen very shortly on the left hand side, signalled by a For Sale board.
