Edwardian villa overlooking the west Somerset coastline offering 10 en suite bedrooms and development potential


Marston Lodge is an Edwardian villa, located in the seaside town of Minehead which is the principal town in west Somerset. Minehead offers a wide range of activities and provides visitors an excellent base from which to explore all that this delightful area has to offer including Exmoor, the Quantock Hills, historic villages such as Dunster and a wide range of outdoor pursuits. Minehead offers a full range of local amenities. Taunton is 24 miles away with mainline services to London and access to the M5 motorway.


Marston Lodge occupies an elevated position in the historic North Hill area of Minehead, parts of which date from the 12th Century, and benefits from far reaching panoramic views over the surrounding countryside and coastline. The centre of town is easily accessible from the property, as are the esplanade and beach. Marston Lodge was originally an Edwardian gentleman's residence. It has been sympathetically extended and converted and now offers 10 en suite letting bedrooms, public areas and owners' accommodation whilst retaining original features. Many rooms benefit from the excellent views.

Externally there is a garage providing access through to the ground floor of the back of house areas. Subject to obtaining the necessary consents this could be converted to further owners' accommodation. Additionally, to the rear of the property is a large terraced garden with greenhouse, shed and summer house. 6 car parking spaces.

Development Opportunities - Under planning permission 3-21-05-084 the property has permission to be converted into 6 apartments. We understand this has been secured through the work done on the dormer windows. We would advise interested parties to make their own


On reaching Minehead: Exit right at the first roundabout for the sea front (Seaward Way). Go straight ahead at the
second roundabout & over the Steam Railway Line. Turn left at the next small roundabout & drive along the seafront,
into The Avenue (the High Street) & continue along the road until you reach WH Smith (on the left). Turn right into
Blenheim Road and take the fork uphill into Martlett Road (signposted North Hill). Continue uphill to the sharp lefthand
bend, around the war memorial and Marston Lodge is 100 yards further up on the right (if you reach St. Michael's Church you have gone too far!!).
