Full description

Tenure: Freehold

DESCRIPTION: Rarely available is such a delightful 3/4 bedroom family home, believed to date back some 200 years as a former lodge, set in a fabulous position within private grounds and within walking distance of the town centre yet in a semi-rural location. Having undergone a sympathetic refurbishment programme, a viewing comes highly recommended to fully appreciate not only its accommodation but in particular the overall plot and fabulous gardens.

The current owners have undertaken various works cleverly blending modern day living whilst
retaining much of the original character, to include relocating the kitchen and the installation of a 3-oven Aga, the installation of a new multi-fuel stove to the sitting room, a new bathroom suite plus the extension of the en-suite, partial re-wiring in line with the electrical survey, installation of a flow and return central heating system with new radiators, new decoration to include re-plastering and re-carpeting to a number of the rooms, externally replacing the ridge tiles with installation of air bricks to the loft and installation of a Wetherby external wall insulation system.

Whilst the main entrance hall is to one side of the property for general day to day purposes, the use of the conservatory is more practical and in particular enjoys the overall aspect of the main gardens. Large double sliding doors from the conservatory lead directly to the adjoining patio with floor to ceiling windows providing ample light. An inner glazed door leads through to the kitchen which comprises of a range of country cream wall and base units, contrasting work surfaces and space for appliances, with the a 3-oven Aga having been installed in Spring 2013. The utility, formally the kitchen, with its original range of wall and base units provides ample work surfaces and space for further appliances.

The dining room is central to the home with a lovely outlook to the garden, timber beams and double doors that lead through to the entrance hallway, which in itself is of a good size with space for hanging coats and storage for footwear.

The sitting room is a lovely room located to the southern elevation with the multi-fuel stove having been installed in the winter of 2012/2013 and a number of other features to include a porthole
window to the front elevation and further large door leading directly to the garden. Adjoining is the study/bedroom 4 which has a beamed ceiling, exposed stonework and three windows to two
elevations.

Accessible by two staircases the first floor landing is both light and airy given the window to the front elevation with deep sill. The 3 bedrooms to the first floor are all of a good size serviced by a newly installed en-suite to the master bedroom with a fabulous family bathroom comprising of a delightful free standing roll top bath central to the room, a separate walk-in shower and further white sanitary ware.

Outside, one of the main selling points is certainly the surrounding gardens with cleverly created areas to provide a formal garden with large lawn and area for growing produce, promoting a degree of self-sufficiency which many people aspire to with a number of other interesting areas and well stocked flower and shrub borders. The property is approached via two decorative iron gates which open onto a gravel driveway, providing ample off-road parking, in turn leading to detached garage with power and lighting and a large hard standing to the side, ideal for the stowage of a caravan or trailer. The front gardens are well established with patio directly adjacent to the accommodation, ideal for siting out and entertaining especially given the sunny aspect.

LOCATION: Linden Lodge is situated just outside the town of Wellington with a pathway that leads directly to the Wellington Basins and Wellington Sports Centre and in turn to the town centre which offers a wide range of independently run shops and larger national stores including the well renowned Waitrose. Given the property's semi-rural position there are numerous walks literally on your doorstep yet still of ease to all major routes to include the A38 and the M5 motorway which can be joined at Junction 26 approximately 2 miles distant. The County Town of Taunton is approximately 9 miles distant with its mainline railway link to London Paddington.

Wellington itself stands between the River Tone and the Blackdown Hills is steeped in history with associations to the 'Iron Duke' of Wellington who is renowned for his military exploits. The well-known landmark, Wellington Monument, was built to celebrate the Duke's victory over Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo.

DIRECTIONS: From our Wellington office proceed along North Street in the Millerton direction. Continued for approximately 1 mile and just after the former school on the right turn left before the row of cottages into Burchills Hill. Continue along this road for 1/2 a mile where the sign to Linden House will be seen on the left. Turn left then immediately right where Linden Lodge is clearly marked by our For Sale board attached to the iron gates.
