Situation - The Wagon House lies in a fine rural, yet accessible, location on the edge of this quiet village, close to the Somerset/Devon border. Ashbrittle includes a village hall, green and ancient church and the villages of Appley and Stawley are within 2 miles with primary school, church and public house/restaurant.
The nearby town of Wellington is 7 miles and offers a range of facilities and amenities including Waitrose supermarket and independent shops, whilst the county town of Taunton and the cathedral city of Exeter offer a greater range of shops, amenities, sixth form Colleges and Exeter University. For independent schools, Wellington School is highly regarded and Blundells at Tiverton is very accessible, and offers discounts to local pupils, along with a further choice available in Taunton.
The M5 is easily accessible at Wellington and Tiverton, providing great links to Cornwall to the south and Bristol and London to the north and east. There are regular rail services to London Paddington from Taunton and Tiverton, and Exeter International Airport provides a number of domestic and international flights.
Description - The Wagon House is the principal part of a small courtyard development and, as the name suggests, once housed the farm horse wagon. The conversion of this traditional, predominantly, stone barn was completed in 2008 to provide a fabulous home with flexible accommodation, making use of all the space and light, whilst retaining many character features, including vaulted ceilings and exposed roof trusses, whilst benefitting from double glazing and custom built solid oak internal doors with, attractive door furniture. The space has been cleverly used throughout with an intrinsic staircase being a main feature in the reception room, leading to a mezzanine walkway.
Accommodation - The stained glass stable door leads through to the entrance hall with solid oak flooring that continues largely throughout the ground floor.
The exceptional living area combines the reception rooms with a floor to ceiling glazed aspect and mezzanine walkway, allowing the light to flow throughout. The bespoke handcrafted oak staircase makes a division between the dining and living areas, although being open plan ensures the space can always be incorporated into day to day living. The living area centres on a Hamlet woodburner set upon a slate hearth with an area of exposed brick walling behind.
The kitchen/breakfast room has a tiled floor and includes a partially glazed wall with double doors opening onto the courtyard, making an ideal space for entertaining. There is an extensive range of bespoke cream painted units including integrated appliances with granite work surfaces and an electric AGA. There are also two large cupboards; one providing space for laundry appliances and the other housing the boiler.
Beyond the living area is the inner hall, which leads to two double bedrooms (both enjoying an outlook over the courtyard) and the very well presented family bathroom, fitted with a comprehensive suite, including bath and separate double shower.
Completing the ground floor accommodation is a study, which could easily be used as a fifth bedroom, and a cloakroom.
On the first floor the mezzanine walkway connects two double bedrooms, both with very well presented en-suite bathrooms.
Gardens - The gardens are predominately enclosed by stone walls, apart from along the eastern boundary where there is a large expanse of lawn. A paved pathway leads around the property, with two brick stores on the side. The majority of the garden lies on the south side of the property in an attractive walled courtyard, which makes a great sun trap, with a range of planters, including bay trees. To the front of the property, along the western side, is a beautiful planted border with an array of mature shrubs and plants. There is also a gravelled parking area.
Viewings - Strictly by prior appointment through the agents, Stags, on 01823 662822.
