Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A splendid family house standing in a spectacular position with outstanding southerly views over the Somerset levels and standing in gardens and grounds extending to about 3.6 acres. NO ONWARD CHAIN.

Believed to date back to 1927, the site for Broadacres was chosen to take full advantage of the extensive southerly views and is set down below the level of the drive behind which is the woodland protecting the property from the road.

The house is constructed of rendered and colour washed elevations under a tiled roof and benefits from double glazing and oil-fired central heating. An arched entrance porch leads to the reception hall, on the right of which is the study and on the left is the drawing room which originally at one time was two rooms and now provides an excellent entertaining room being 33' in length overall. French doors lead to the terrace from which the views can be enjoyed. It should also be noted that the windows are low, again to take advantage of the views whilst sitting down.

At the other end of the house is the dining room again with picture window and behind is a modern fitted kitchen, utility and boiler room.

On the first floor are four double bedrooms with the master having a beautiful ensuite and large walk-in dressing room. The remaining bedrooms are serviced by a family bathroom and separate shower room.

A real selling point of the property are the gardens and grounds with mature woodland containing a number of fine trees including evergreen oak, ash, beech and hornbeam. Apart from the gardens there is the adjoining paddock and the whole extends in all to approximately 3.6 acres.

Broadacres is situated on Chilton Polden Hill. It faces south and with extensive views over the adjoining farmland with a number of hills in the distance including the Blackdown and the Quantocks. The property overlooks the small village of Stawell and the views show the patterned quilt work of the fields.

Whilst set in this rural position, the property lies just over 3 miles from the access to the M5 motorway at junction 23. This provides access north to Bristol and the remainder of the motorway system, south to the county town of Taunton and beyond to the south west.
To the east are the towns of Street and Glastonbury with Clarke's Village shopping centre and Millfield School at Street. Bridgwater lies within about 5 miles and all towns provide multiple shopping and schooling facilities with a number of private schools in Taunton. The high speed train service operates from Taunton to London Paddington and Bristol Airport lies to the north.

Broadacres is approached though a gravel drive, flanked on either side by fine beech trees. Between the drive and the road is the woodland with a number of fine mature trees including beech, evergreen oak and hornbeam. On the floor of this woodland are flowering cyclamen, daffodils, primroses, snowdrops, providing a profusion of mainly spring flowers.

The drive extends to the rear of the house providing a gravelled area for parking of several vehicles and this leads in turn to double garage 18'3" x 16'8" (5.57m x 5.12m) internal with two pairs of doors. Electricity, light and power. Partly boarded roof space, currently divided for storage.

To one side of this is a three bay store used for logs. Beyond the garage inset within the woodland is a timber frame shed 20' x 10' (6.09m x 3.04m) internal. There is a further workshop of timber frame construction 3.6m x 6.07m and Polly-tunnel.

The gardens are post and railed apart from the northern boundary. To the west of the garage is a sloping fruit orchard. Adjoining the west of the house is a large vegetable garden which could return back to lawn if you so wished.

Immediately adjoining the south of the house is the paved terrace, ideal for sitting out to enjoy the wonderful southerly views over Somerset. Beyond this is a lawned area which leads to the east of the house including further lawned areas, one partly lawned and screened by shrubs and bushes to provide a sheltered garden. At the bottom of the garden is a west facing summer house, ideal for enjoying the evening sun.

To the east of the drive approached by a five-bar gate with post and rail fencing is the paddock with a number of mature trees including ash. This paddock is ideal for keeping horses, ponies or other stock. It should be noted that it is steep in sections.

The whole extends in all to approximately 3.6 acres.
