This Victorian terraced property is located in the heart of Nether Stowey, while character features are abundant inside and out. This three bedroom house is a spacious property with large room sizes and high ceilings throughout.
The property is offered to the market in good decorative order after being gradually modernised by the current owners. Original character features such as ceramic tile and wooden floors, deep skirting boards, fireplaces, window seats and wooden internal and external doors make this house a pleasant place to be. In addition, modern features such as high quality shower room suite, modern kitchen and range and garden/utility room create the perfect blend between old and new. Unlisted but within the Nether Stowey Conservation area this property plays a role in forming what is one of the most attractive and desirable villages in the area, where period properties of varying ages form today's village centre.
A black wooden front door with bronze letter box and knocker forms part of an attractive façade and gives access to an entrance hall. To the front of the house lies a cosy living room with bay window and window seat, integrated wooden cupboard and fireplace with tiled hearth, wooden surround and operational wood burner inset.
An original tiled floor flows from the hallway into the spacious kitchen/dining room. The kitchen is made of a range of base and wall units with wooden fixtures and worktops with inset ceramic sink and draining board with mixer tap, under window overlooking the rear courtyard. The original fireplace is now filled by a large electric range style cooker with eight ring gas hob with cooker hood over and ornate tiled splashback.
Beyond the kitchen is a garden/utility room with fitted base units with stainless steel sink and draining board as well as space and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer. From here is also a downstairs w/c and patio sliding doors leading to the rear courtyard. This space, although small, is somewhat of a sun-trap and offers a pleasant outdoor sitting space in addition to the main garden.
From the kitchen, stairs lead to the first floor landing, from which all upstairs rooms lead. The master bedroom is spacious and benefits from an attractive iron fireplace. The second bedroom is also a double room and benefits from fitted wardrobes either side of another original fireplace. The third and final bedroom is a well-proportioned single. All rooms benefit from large windows offering plenty of light and exposed wooden floor boards. The shower room is particularly modern with low level w/c, basin and large shower with screen.
From the garden room a wooden door leads to a rear alleyway, over which right of access is granted to the garden afforded to the property, around twenty five yards up the path. The garden itself is private and very well maintained. With a wooden shed the space is mostly laid to lawn but is bordered by flower beds with a range of flowering plants and shrubs.
The property sits in the centre of Nether Stowey, a village itself offering two convenience stores, butchers, three pubs, hairdressers, doctors, primary school, fire station, village hall, library, vet practise and recreation ground. The village was once home to famous poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge and his home is open to the public to this day. Further attractions include the ruins of Nether Stowey castle sitting in a commanding position above the village. Cobbled pavements and clock tower where a yarn market once stood are signs of what was a bustling Medieval centre. Nether Stowey sits on the slopes of the Quantock Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering excellent walking, riding and cycling opportunities. The towns of Bridgwater and Taunton are both nearby and offer excellent shopping, leisure, sports and health facilities. Access to the M5 is only fifteen minutes away and a mainline rail link from Taunton offers routes to London Paddington in as little as two hours.
To reach the property from Bridgwater, proceed on the A39 in the direction of Minehead. Around seven miles after leaving Bridgwater, Nether Stowey will be signposted on the left hand side. Leave the main road at this slip-road style junction and head into the centre of the village. After around two hundred yards the clock tower will be seen on the left hand side, as will Castle Street. The property is found just after this on the left hand side.
