Property SummaryThis unique house is tucked away at the far end of a no through road that was previously the Headmasters residence for Millfield School and offers the fresh charm and character that you might expect to find in New England, USA. It is highly convenient given its proximity to the high street and offers airy, light and modern accommodation complimented by charming and tranquil gardens.
9 Housman Road offers accommodation that is spacious and immaculately presented. It is an ideal family home, providing a well balanced layout with the added benefit of a home gym. From the ground floor two large reception rooms enjoy direct access to the terrace and delightful gardens beyond. A particularly attractive feature of the main living room is its triple arched alcoves with shelving and built in storage underneath, two of which frame the feature fireplace set in the third alcove. Leading off the second reception room, what was formally the indoor swimming pool has been cleverly converted into an extensive home gym which now provides a workout area, hot tub and sauna. This space could easily be converted back or would provide the ideal opportunity for the addition of an annexe.
The clean lines and contemporary style of the kitchen / breakfast room compliment the house perfectly, offering the flexibility of a breakfast bar and plenty of space for a table. Additionally the garden is again, easily reached through double doors, ideal for al fresco summer dining. Further and more formal dining is catered for in the adjoining dining room and from the central hub of the kitchen a study, utility and cloakroom lead off.
From the landing on the first floor are four excellently proportioned double bedrooms with one offering an en-suite bathroom additional to the family bathroom. Both bathrooms provide clean lines and a contemporary feel.
The gardens have been cleverly and sensitively landscaped and in doing so the present owners have complimented the house and the outside equally. With direct access to the garden available from most of the downstairs rooms, bringing the outside in and vice versa has created a wonderfully open feel. Of particular note is the beautiful Wisteria covered pergola providing shade on the terrace. Not to be missed is the well maintained and productive vegetable garden with ample storage for tools and sun loungers in the shed and summer house.
Ideally located within a short walk from the town centre with a good range of high street shops and Clarks Village Outlet centre is close by.
Street is well positioned for easy access to the many excellent local schools including Millfield Senior School within a short drive and Crispin School as well as the highly regarded Strode Sixth Form College is within walking distance as well as several good primary schools. There are two swimming pools in Street, one to be found at the Sports Centre and the hugely popular outdoor Lido on the High Street with its lovely grassy areas for picnics. The Strode Theatre offers excellent live performances as well as films and exhibitions.
The nearby town of Glastonbury is steeped in history going back to the legends of King Arthur. There was a Celtic monastery here in 500AD, which during the next 1000 years evolved into one of England’s wealthiest and influential Abbeys. The magnificent Glastonbury Abbey ruins and the famous Glastonbury Tor attract tourists to the town and so although small, it is a thriving town and it is well served by markets and a huge range of festivities. It is one of the few towns that has managed to shun many of the main chain stores whilst still providing all the necessary shops, restaurants, cafes, doctors, pharmacies, dentists, a wealth of clubs and sporting facilities and supermarkets.
Nearby is Somerton, an old market town and one of the original capitals of Wessex and Wells the smallest City in England is only 10 miles away.
