Location

Woolavington is an historic village, dating back to at least Saxon times and was included in the Domesday book. It stands on the Polden Hills between the towns of Street, Somerton and Glastonbury to the east and Bridgwater to the west. It’s a large village with an excellent shop and doctor’s surgery, a primary school, well equipped playground and a friendly community. Causeway Farmhouse is situated in the heart of the old part of the village amongst other period houses and close to the Grade 1 listed church.

Description

Causeway Farmhouse is believed to date from the early 17th Century. A 1734 datestone indicates later works in that period. It’s a handsome house with stone, rendered and colour washed elevations under a tiled roof with attractive stone mullioned windows. The front elevation is enhanced by a stunning mature wisteria. Internally many period details are retained including flagstone flooring, various fireplaces, beams, window seats, panelling and oak, pine and elm timberwork. These are complemented by an Aga, and oil fired central heating. The result is a charming home with generous living areas and plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms.

Accommodation

The front door opens to a central hall with flagstone floors and doors to the right and left to the main reception rooms. The drawing room, to the right, has an inglenook fireplace with an arched chamfered beam and a wood burning stove. Alongside the fireplace is a panelled recess which leads to an Amdega conservatory with flagstones, French doors and a well-established vine. The dining room, to the left of the hall, has a drinks cupboard, a shelved alcove with cupboards, a door to the backstairs and a door to the kitchen. This is the welcoming heart of the house and has fitted units, worksurfaces, an electric hob, an Aga (also heating hot water), pantry and a door to the side garden.
