Full descriptionQuite simply Porch House is a unique opportunity – distinguished by its historic provenance and highly attractive architecture; as well as its well-proportioned and incredibly flexible floor space.
With its distinctive and eponymous porch facing the lane and the front of the house enjoying rural views over the fields opposite, the property is predominately arranged to the rear – in a quiet and peaceful position.
The floor space is superb – from the frivolity of the party barn complete with a working bar and stable door to the garden - to the exquisite period features dotted throughout; not least including original flag stones, leaded windows, shutters, inglenook fireplaces and ancient doors.
There is a room for every occasion, and a bed for all the family whilst at the same time the house feels cosy and charming.
In addition Blandings the attached two bedroom cottage, provides a wealth of possibilities. The current owners enjoy a multi-generational lifestyle, being close to their children and grandchildren, but it equally affords a new owner numerous options. The shortage of rural houses means renting is a real consideration, and as the cottage comes with its own garden privacy need not be sacrificed. For those looking for shorter term options, holiday lettings and Airbnb may prove a useful additional income stream – whilst not sacrificing a spare space for guests and family when needed.
Approached via electric gates there is a tarmac driveway away from the house, leading to one of three garages. Two have electric doors whilst the single garage attached to Blandings has traditional wooden hinged doors – and if not needed for a car makes for excellent storage.
A charming loggia runs along the side of the house, with day to day entry into the property via the kitchen door. There is also independent access to the boot room and a stable door to the party barn.
Overlooking all of this is an attractive lawn garden – dotted with mature trees including cherry and providing a wonderful aspect and a pretty view from inside the house too.
To the rear is a gated lawn garden, flanked by two historic stone carved figures – believed to come from Glastonbury Abbey. This has the benefit of paved hard-standing for outdoor dining and an attractive Arbour. To the side of this is a smaller secluded garden with room to hang washing and a small vegetable bed.
Wedmore is a thriving and historic county village, bustling with activity and providing numerous essential services and amenities, such as a local newsagent, butcher, chemist as well as several hairdressers. There are several well-regarded pubs and restaurants along with numerous clubs and activities for resident’s to enjoy. A monthly magazine provides local content and it is not surprising to see the village thrive so well.
