Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An individual modern four bedroom detached house with delightful gardens of about one third of an acre close to the centre of this favoured village.

EPC Band D

Levens House was built in the late 1960's with elevations of reconstructed stone and block cavity contained under a tiled roof.

The house was extended in 1988 and offers flexible accommodation with potential to create a ground floor 'granny annexe'.

There is uPVC double glazing to the majority of the windows and an oil fired heating system with a recently installed new boiler.

The accommodation briefly comprises entrance hall, cloakroom, sitting room with fireplace, dining room with staircase to the first floor, kitchen, inner hall with utility room off and study/bedroom five. On the first floor there are four bedrooms and a bathroom.

Undoubtedly a feature of Levens House are the gardens which are an absolute delight. There are well stocked flower beds and borders including numerous rose beds offering a profusion of colour, various mature trees and shrubs and a 'wild' garden area. There is a single garage with adjoining car port and in all the property extends to about one third of an acre.

Levens House is well situated occupying a particularly pleasant position close to the centre of the highly favoured South Somerset village of Drayton which is designated as a Conservation Area in order to preserve its character and the many fine period properties of various styles.

The village has a parish church, inn and hall. Nearby Curry Rivel being a larger village, has a wider range of facilities including convenience store, post office, inn, hardware store with tea room, primary school, church and garages.

Langport, just over two miles away, is a pleasant former market town with excellent everyday amenities including supermarket, bank, doctors and dentist surgeries, veterinary surgery and excellent schooling facilities at the nearby Huish Episcopi Academy.

The county town of Taunton is just over ten miles to the west with a full range of shopping, educational and sporting facilities together with access to the M5 motorway (junction 25) and inter-city rail link to London (Paddington). Other nearby centres include Yeovil, Bridgwater, Street (Millfield School) and access to the A303 (linking with the M3) is about ten miles.

The property is approached from the village road via a timber entrance gate onto a tarmac driveway with parking and turning area leading to the Single Garage 17' 3" x 9' with up and over door and adjoining Car Port 17' 3" x 9' 6".

The Gardens are without doubt a feature of Levens House and extend to about one third of an acre. To the front there is an area of lawn with flower beds and borders set behind a stone wall with rockery, Copper Beech tree, ornamental pond and paved pathways. A rose clad archway leads through to the rear garden which is beautifully maintained and offers a profusion of colour throughout the year with deep planted flower beds and borders, large expanse of lawn, mature trees, shrubs and a 'wild garden' with ornamental pond. There is an extensive paved terrace adjacent to the rear of the house with access into a Garden Store 7' x 6' 6", two timber sheds, fruit cage, cold water tap, oil storage tank and fenced and hedged boundaries.
