Description

A superb double-fronted, semi-detached house, pleasantly located within the sought-after village of Baltonsborough. The property includes three bedrooms, two reception rooms, a generous garden with a large outbuilding and extensive off-road parking. Planning permission was granted in 2022 for a two-storey side extension, providing the opportunity to create a spacious four bedroom home. No onwarrd chain. EPC rating E.


A door to the front of the property opens into an enclosed porch with a window to the side. An inner door then leads through to a central hall, which incorporates the staircase to the first floor accommodation. To the right of the hall is the sitting room; a comfortable dual-aspect reception room with an attractive fireplace and an inset wood-burning stove. To the left is the kitchen, which is also dual-aspect and is fitted with a range of floor and wall units in a contemporary style. Within the kitchen is space for a freestanding range cooker and plumbing for a freestanding dishwasher. This light and airy room includes a breakfast bar, alcove storage and a built-in pantry cupboard on one side. The kitchen then continues through to a downstairs WC and a separate dining room, which could be utilised as a second living room, home office or playroom, if desired. Located off the dining room is a useful utility room, which offers plumbing for a washing machine, space for a tumble drier, a Vaillant boiler for the LPG central heating, a sink, floor and wall units and a window to the rear.

Completing the ground floor accommodation is a double glazed conservatory on the western side of the property, which opens out to the garden.

On the first floor, there are three bedrooms (two doubles and a good size single), both double bedrooms have front-facing windows with rural views and fitted storage. The family bathroom comprises a panelled bath with shower mixer taps and tiling around, a low level WC, a pedestal wash hand basin and a heated towel rail.

OUTSIDE
One of the main selling points of this superb property is the outside space, with the particularly generous garden and the stone-chipped driveway, which is gated and provides off-road parking for numerous vehicles. 

The front garden has a central pathway to the front door, established borders and is enclosed by low level fencing with a wooden gate. The garden to the rear is predominantly laid to lawn and is also enclosed by fencing, with mature borders, shrubs and plants. Directly behind the house is a large patio seating area which includes a covered timber gazebo and a summerhouse. At the foot of the garden is a large brick built outbuilding, formerly a stable block which is now in need of repair, although currently provides useful storage. This outbuilding (34' x 12') offers considerable scope for future development, including as a home office, studio space or ancillary accommodation (the latter subject to any necessary consents). Beside the outbuilding is a section of vegetable plots and a greenhouse. The plot backs onto agricultural land, providing a pleasant semi-rural position.

Agents Note:
The property benefits from full planning permission, reference number 2022/1740/HSE, granted in October 2022. The permission allows for the demolition of the existing single-storey extension and the conservatory, to be replaced by the erection of a two-storey side extension. This planning permission also grants permission to demolish the current outbuilding at the foot of the garden and replace it with a new two-storey detached outbuilding. This permission provides an opportunity for a purchaser to create a most impressive four bedroom home. Full details can be found on the Somerset Planning Portal, by searching the reference number noted above.
