Church House, Broadway is set in a most attractive position among larger period properties being within easy walking distance of the centre of the village and a good range of day-to-day amenities, including two popular pubs and a village shop with Post Office. Church House is Grade II Listed dating back to 1739 having been a chapel along with school rooms to the rear. It was converted in the 1980s and has been under the same occupation since then, and is now entering the open market for the second time. The property has Hamstone faced elevations, stone sides and rear, under a tiled roof with oil fired central heating. The property retains a huge amount of the original character and charm with large glazed windows to the south elevation, including impressive mullion curved windows. Inside the accommodation has been well-planned with an impressive main drawing room with feature fireplace, double height ceiling to the front and French doors out to the front, south facing garden. There is an attractive reception hall with separate front entrance porch with a cloakroom and cupboard. Set to the rear of the property is a good sized kitchen breakfast room with useful utility room and a separate dining room. To the first floor there is a galleried landing leading to 2 good sized double bedrooms, both with fitted storage, the main bedroom having an en suite. Off the landing are three bedrooms set to the rear and a family bathroom. A staircase leads to the second floor landing area and a separate study with window overlooking the garden. Set off the 2nd floor landing are a kitchenette with cloakroom, along with access to the eaves along the sides. This area appears to offer huge scope for alteration - bedrooms, possibly ancillary accommodation, subject to any required planning permissions and consents.

Broadway together with its sister village of Horton form a very active community with facilities which include a Post Office/stores, primary school, doctors surgery, village halls, churches, and two popular village inns.

The larger busy market town of Ilminster lies less than three miles to the east, providing a range of facilities fulfilling most day-to-day needs with a variety of shops including a Tesco store, a medical centre, various churches and schools.

The village is well placed for access to the County town of Taunton 10 miles with its comprehensive facilities, including shops, schools within both the state and independent sectors, a theatre, county cricket ground, race course and mainline station (London Paddington), Chard 5 miles, Axminster and Crewkerne with mainline stations (London Waterloo) 9 miles, Yeovil 15 miles and the South Coast 18 miles.
