The Court House is an elegant late Victorian detached house of considerable charm and character set in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. The stunning bespoke upgrades will undoubtedly appeal to families seeking period style combined with those all-important modern conveniences. The current owners have devoted themselves to lovingly restoring the property to its original charm, undertaking an extensive programme of upgrading and modernisation which has resulted in the beautifully presented family home that is on offer today.
The Court House is accessed via a driveway with impressive twin stone pillars which are Grade II listed to preserve their heritage (and are the only elements of the property which are listed). The property is set nicely back from the road in a plot approaching a quarter of an acre, comprising walled gardens which are entirely private, the perfect place to unwind and entertain all year round. The gardens have a pleasant country feel, predominantly laid to lawn with a delightful planting scheme and various patio areas incorporating plenty of stonework and a raised fishpond. The internal accommodation, full of beautiful period features, will not disappoint either. Briefly comprising an impressive reception hall with half turn staircase, an 18' drawing room, a stunning bespoke 30' kitchen/dining room, a sitting room with a wood burning stove, a sizeable utility room and a downstairs cloakroom, in addition to a rear hall and porch. Upstairs the light and spacious accommodation continues with a landing with dual aspect windows, five good sized bedrooms (all of which would easily accommodate a double bed), a newly fitted en-suite shower room and an impressive period style family bathroom. Additionally, several of the rooms both upstairs and downstairs benefit from far-reaching views across countryside towards the Somerset coastline.
