Full description

An imposing hamstone house situated in the heart of a very popular Somerset village with four stone outbuildings comprising workshop, two store rooms and a double garage.

Believed to have originally been a farmhouse, Manor Place is one of a group of 3 period houses dating from the 17th Century, which were then re-shaped and extended in the early 19th Century. The 3 houses are arranged in an L-shape, with Manor Place occupying a corner position and overlooking the historic centre of the village. Internally the property has an excellent feeling of space with many striking and attractive features including stone mullion windows with diamond lattice window panes throughout, stone flagged floors, elm floorboards on the landing and a number of open fireplaces with fine stone surrounds. On the ground floor the front door opens to a wide, flagstoned reception hall with a broad staircase to the first floor. To the right a door leads through to a delightful sitting room with a large inglenook fireplace fitted with a wood burning stove, a walk-in storage cupboard and French windows leading to the garden. On the other side of the hall is a large dining room, kitchen/breakfast room equipped with a Rangemaster combination gas and electric cooker, and a cloakroom. On the first floor there is a wide landing with doors off to a large master bedroom with en suite bath and shower room, 2 further bedrooms (1 single currently used as a study) and a family bathroom.
The house is set back behind stone walling surmounted by evergreen hedging, where a timber pedestrian gate opens on to a flagstone path leading up to the front door with a laurel tree on one side.
