This imposing period family home has tremendous appeal, offering wonderfully spacious character accommodation together with expansive gardens at the rear, all enjoying a prominent position within this highly regarded Polden village. The property has been extensively refurbished by our clients to the highest specification, resulting in a truly fabulous home. Good use of light and space has retained its sense of volume and openness and great attention has been paid to retaining many of the wonderful original features that this property boasts throughout. The house can be accessed from either front or rear elevation with a large brick paved driveway sweeping behind the house and pathways extending to the property from the rear. At the front an entrance porch provides access to the principal sitting room, and in turn to all further ground floor accommodation. This room boasts a wealth of character with exposed timber beams, flagstone flooring and attractive brick fireplace featuring an inset wood burning stove. A central hallway leads off to two further particularly well proportioned reception rooms, one utilised as a large home study/library and the room at the far end as a spacious formal dining room that features an inglenook fireplace, exposed flooring and central ceiling beam. An impressive kitchen/breakfast room located at the rear is a true focal point for the property, taking in a superb outlook over the gardens and having been fitted with quality bespoke units and granite worktops. The kitchen has all the modern benefits of integrated appliances, induction hob and eye level ovens, yet also has an authentic electric AGA as its central feature as well as ample space at one end for a large family sized table and chairs. At the opposite end, a large utility/boot room and adjoining store have the benefit of door opening to the garden. The remainder of the vast ground floor accommodation consists of a further multi-purpose reception room, contemporary white suite shower room and a substantial sun room extension at the rear, a great room for the summer with vaulted glass ceiling and doors opening straight onto the garden. From the long first floor landing there is access to all bedrooms and family bathroom. The bathroom has been fitted with a traditional modern white suite with separate WC. All bedrooms are of generous proportions, with the master room in particular of good size, easily accommodating a king size bed, bedroom furniture, fitted storage and enjoying the added benefit of an adjoining en-suite shower room.
The property sits within a superb sized plot with the majority of the gardens lying traditionally to the rear of the house and enjoying complete privacy from neighbours. The garden takes in a south-westerly aspect, affording sun throughout the best part of the day and is predominantly laid to lawn with weaving pathways and attractive well stocked shrub and flower beds at the borders. A full width patio extends from the rear elevation, an ideal seating area or perfect for outdoors dining. Rear access is available from Chandlers Lane through a gated entrance to a large brick paved driveway providing ample off road parking for three or more vehicles.
