Bratton Seymour House dates back to 1868 and was built as an impressive private country residence set in approximately 2 acres of parkland and gardens, elevated with breath taking views over the rolling hills surrounding this desirable Somerset village. The property became a Quaker School for girls in 1939 until the 1980s when it was converted into individual dwellings. Number 7 is a light and bright 2 bedroom, first floor apartment with the use of the communal gardens, a swimming pool and a hard tennis court. This apartment has its own private entrance with pretty stone steps leading up to the front door. A hallway connects the open plan sitting room/ kitchen, two double bedrooms and a bathroom.
The property is accessed via a private driveway and directly outside the apartment is a little garden with planted borders and an abundance of flowers. Tucked away under the stone steps is a useful garden shed and there is allocated parking for one vehicle.
