The popular villages of Brent Knoll and East Brent provide facilities such as a village shop, church, pub and preschool. More amenities can be found within 4 miles in Burham-on-Sea. The property is close to the railway line and it is worth noting that this means for the majority of the time the environment is very peaceful.
Originally a smaller railway cottage, this attractive house has been extended over the years to provide delightful accommodation. As is often the case with country properties, you enter via the kitchen door, in this case, a sliding glazed French door. This opens to a breakfast room with gothic, arched windows and a vaulted ceiling. The adjoining kitchen has recently been fitted with stylish units and a solid timber worksurface it also has a bespoke island with a granite surface. There’s space for a washing machine and undercounter fridge and separate freezer. An oil/wood or coal fired range provides warmth and cooking facilities in the winter, next to this there is an electric cooker and extractor.
A door leads from the kitchen to a boot room which has an exterior door leading back out to the garden. Another door leads into the main hallway. This is a lovely bright space with fully glazed doors flooding it with light. To the left is the sitting room, again, glazed French doors give access to the garden and provide plenty of natural light. This room has an attractive fireplace as a focal point, currently fitted with an electric log effect stove but the chimney is still available to reinstate a log burning stove if you wish.
To the right of the hallway is a snug. This is a very cosy room with another electric log burning stove (chimney available to reinstate). A door leads from the snug to the rear kitchen which is a surprisingly large room with high ceilings and plenty of room for a table and chairs. It has very attractive, hand crafted, bespoke fitted units. There is a Belfast sink and space for a fridge/freezer and cooker. A door leads to the rear hall, here there’s an exterior door to the rear of the property and a boiler room, wet room and the dining room which flows back through to the main hallway.
A large window on the half landing, up the main stairs, provides fabulous views over farmland to Crook Peak. There are 3 double bedrooms, a laundry room and a family bathroom. One of the bedrooms has a large picture window with views of Brent Knoll and another has glazed French doors to a balcony which has views of the same. Two of the rooms also have fitted wardrobes.
A second set of stairs rises from the snug to a large double bedroom.
In all there is plenty of versatile accommodation.
A covered carport provides space for a car and there is parking for multiple cars on a gravel drive. In addition, there’s further parking alongside the boundary hedge and a gateway from here into the garden.
The house is approached from the drive, through a garden arch. A meandering path, flanked by lawn and shrubs, wends its way to the kitchen doors. The hedges are currently high around the property, providing total seclusion, but they could be lowered to take advantage of the glorious views. To the rear of the property there is a timber shed, greenhouse and very attractive terrace with a vine and other mature creepers. The garden has a secretive, haven-like feel to it.
