A substantial Grade II listed property in the heart of Bruton with a self-contained converted coach house, beautiful walled gardens, large garage and private off street parking.
Also known as “The Old-School House”, this spacious property (approximately 2800 sq. feet) had its origins in medieval times and was redesigned in the 18th century. It features well-proportioned rooms with high ceilings, solid stone walls, new handmade sash windows, a very attractive staircase and some flagstone floors. The sitting room has an attractive open fire place and oak beams while the dining room features an oak floor, traditional shutters on the windows, French doors and built in bookshelves. The kitchen/breakfast room has flagstone floors, handmade fitted units and an exposed stone fireplace suitable for an Aga. The drawing room has a hand-crafted wood burner with a ‘smoker’ * and French doors leading to the gardens.
This light and spacious accommodation is arranged over three floors. On the ground floor, there is a traditional flagged stoned hallway leading to the three reception rooms, and a kitchen/breakfast room. On the first floor, an attractive split landing leads to three double bedrooms, two of which have beautiful views over the garden. There is also a family bathroom and a further shower room. On the second floor, there is a very large fourth bedroom incorporating an open plan bathroom and a dressing area. Below ground level is a cellar that could be used as a store room.
At the far end of the garden (a good distance from the main house) is a pretty stone coach house that has been converted into very desirable and flexible accommodation. It comprises a fabulous open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room on the first floor with stairs down to the bedroom, hall/bootroom and large utility/shower room. Alongside this is a garage that could, with the required permissions, be incorporated into the cottage as further accommodation.
To the rear of the property, there is a very good-sized south facing and secluded walled garden, with a terraced area, mature trees, shrubs, pond, greenhouse and lawn. The access to the gravelled ample parking area is at the rear of the property next to the coach house.
