Draycott is a popular village in the lea of the beautiful Mendip Hills, just southeast of Cheddar on the road to Wells. Station House is well situated the village, on a quiet lane with very little traffic and in walking distance of local amenities. Wedmore, Wells and Cheddar are all within easy reach.
The owner of Station House has pointed out “the village has a wonderful primary school next to the church. There are also other good primary schools, in Cheddar, Axbridge, Wedmore and Westbury-sub- Mendip. The Strawberry Special pub is close by and other amenities include several stores selling local produce and a fabulous community run village store in Draycott, in which you can pretty much buy everything you need on a daily basis.”
In 1878 “The Strawberry Line” trainline opened and ran through the village and served the strawberry fields of the area. The line was closed in 1963, the land sold off and the buildings demolished or converted. The station house is one such property having been originally the Station-Masters house. In the current house one of the living rooms was originally the ticket office.
Stone built under a tiled roof it is now a very pretty cottage with lots of character and accommodation with some double glazing and gas central heating. Whilst there is a front door from the front garden the usual entrance is into a side hall off which is a shower room.
The hall then leads into a living room which is very bright and cheerful having a pitched ceiling with 2 roof lights and double French doors into the courtyard garden. This is a lovely central room and ideal for many uses including a dining room or playroom.
Off this room is a small study and the kitchen (17ft) which has a good range of fitted units, storage space, a Belfast sink and appliances including an oven, hob and extractor.
The next room is the sitting room, having a fireplace with a wood burner stove and side arched alcoves. A door leads into a small hall (with the front door) and a staircase to the first floor. Here are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom.
The detached cottage stands back from Station Road within its own garden and with a white picket fence. In front of the cottage is a lawn and box hedging and there’s an attractive canopy porch above the front door.
At the back of the house is a courtyard with flower beds, decking and an artificial lawn with astroturf. There is also a garden store shed and a more substantial shed with electricity.
There is parking space which could be used although it’s currently part of the garden.
