Full description

A charming 1930s detached house set in beautiful private gardens of 0.25 acre including tree lined drive. Popular village location. Adaptable accommodation with 4/5 bedrooms and 4 receptions. Garage, Large Workshop and useful outbuildings. EPC Band F.

Situation - Jasons is situated within the popular south Somerset village of Winsham, a very active village with various societies and activities for adults and children and amenities including a post office/general store and village pub. A wider variety of facilities available in Chard and Ilminster and the market towns Axminster and Crewkerne are within easy reach. Both these towns have train stations with direct trains to London and the county town of Taunton and commercial centre of Yeovil are easily accessible, with several daily rapid coach services to and from London.

Education is well catered for in the area; the property is within the catchment area for Woodroffe School, and Colyton Grammar School is within easy travelling distance. Proximity to the coast is a real benefit; the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site at Lyme Regis is about 14 miles away.

Description - Jasons is an attractive 1930's property which represents the ideal family home within a very private setting. Having been under the current ownership for the past 25 years, this property has been effectively extended and adapted over time to create spacious and versatile accommodation which provides space of the growing family and could be utilised to fulfil a wide selection of needs.

Accommodation - Internally the accommodation bears characteristic hallmarks of 1930's architecture, including high ceilings and picture rails in many rooms. There are 4 reception rooms providing ample living spaces to suit the modern family; the delightful living room is comfortable and homely with a characterful tiled "Jetmaster" fireplace, whilst the inviting sun room is a relaxing and sheltered place from which to enjoy views across the gardens and can also be used as an entrance hallway with underfloor heating, ideal for entering the property with muddy children and dogs in wetter weather. Additionally there is a formal dining room with a beautiful fireplace and views over the garden, a snug-style study and a family room which could also be utilised as a ground floor bedroom or extra study if desired. Domestically, the utility room offers plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer as well as a large sink, and there is a cloakroom off the hallway.

Another key room on the ground floor is the kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with attractive, traditional units providing excellent storage and represents an enjoyable space for all seasons; double doors opening to the garden offer a desirable indoor/outdoor lifestyle during warmer months, whilst the oil fired Rayburn helps to create a warm and sociable kitchen in winter.

The spacious living accommodation is also reflected upstairs where there are 4 delightful bedrooms, 3 of which are of generous double proportions. Every bedroom has a leafy outlook over the gardens, and the largest of the rooms has the potential to create a Juliet balcony. The family bathroom has been well equipped with both a bath and shower cubicle, and there is also a shelved airing cupboard providing good storage. Thoughtful use has been made of the loft space which has been converted into a hobby room with power and light, two skylights and storage cupboards.

Outside - The property sits centrally within mature, secluded gardens of just over a quarter of an acre which enjoy a sunny aspect and have been arranged into "rooms " to take best advantage of natural sun pockets from dawn until dusk. Primarily laid to lawn with an ornamental pond and well-stocked flower and shrub borders, the area to the front of the house catches the very first of the morning sun whilst a raised decking area and paved sun terrace are best placed for lunchtime sunbathing. To the side of the property a shingled area, known fondly to the vendors as "Gordon's Corner", is a beautiful place to relax in the early evening with a cool drink and observe the children at play in the purpose-built tree house which sits a short distance off the ground and offers many hours of entertainment.
Jasons is also blessed with an impressive array of useful timber outbuildings which can be adapted to suit a variety of needs. The large workshop is divided into two rooms (one of which has the potential to be converted back into a garage) which benefit from power and light as well as a wood burner and security system, making this an ideal place to practise creative hobbies and offering the potential to create an annexe, subject to any necessary consents. There is also a charming home office/snug which is a lovely place for those working from home to enjoy some peace and quiet, and two storage sheds for tools. An enclosed vegetable garden benefits from a large potting shed which also has power and light; this could also be used as a tucked-away den or workshop. Gates lead up a tree lined drive to the parking & turning area.

Viewings - Strictly by appointment with the vendors' selling agents - Stags Taunton Office 01823 256625 and Yeovil Office 01935 475000.

Directions - From Chard, proceed to Winsham. Once in the village, carry on past the war memorial. When you get to the village shop turn left up Fore Street. As you come up Fore Street, you will pass Woodlands Garage, Jasons is on the right hand side a little further up.
