Tenure: Freehold

Located on the edge of the historic Tail Mill development, this detached contemporary home lies within walking distance of the village centre but enjoys lovely countryside views from its attractively landscaped rear garden.

The Property
Offering the perfect blend of modern convenience within a period setting, this property has been further enhanced by the current vendor during their ownership. In line with the original developer’s eco-friendly principles, the house was designed with efficiency in mind and as one would expect benefits from attractive double-glazed windows throughout and multi-zone mains gas central heating. The design itself was cleverly thought out, providing a much larger than average master bedroom suite for a house of its type, making this the perfect home for those wanting that feeling of space and luxury whilst having ample room for the rest of the family. It’s also the perfect lock up and leave, with a full alarm system in place for peace of mind and potentially little day to day maintenance. For those requiring good connectivity the property benefits from superfast fibreoptic broadband.

The entrance hall very much sets the tone for the style of the accommodation with attractive design features immediately apparent such as solid oak doors with steel handles, alongside sleek contemporary radiators and little extra touches such as brushed steel switches and sockets. The practical wood effect flooring continues throughout the hall, cloakroom and study.
The study area has been converted into an optional utility / laundry space with the addition of a bespoke unit containing space and plumbing for both washing machine and tumble dryer.

The open plan living space is very en vogue and allows a great passage of natural light throughout its triple aspect. Full length feature windows and a glazed door affords constant views of the beautifully landscaped rear garden very much bringing the “outside-in”. Immediately adjacent is the living area, which merges seamlessly into a good size dining space and contemporary sociable kitchen space with grey gloss units. The kitchen is well equipped with integrated dishwasher, Siemens gas hob and double oven including combination convection / microwave and steam function. The full-length integrated fridge is a real bonus and is complimented by an under-surface freezer. The boiler is hidden away within a complimentary unit and the layout of the units includes ample deep pan drawers as well as wall mounted cupboards and shelving.

On the first floor the landing leads to three bedrooms and a family bathroom, attractively fitted with contemporary grey tiling and a white suite.

The master bedroom is unusually spacious for a three bedroom property and enjoys a light and airy aspect thanks to the full length picture windows to the rear. Two double built in wardrobes with oak doors provide good storage and adjacent is sizeable en suite with stone effect tiling throughout and a contemporary suite including double shower cubicle with mains shower. Bedroom three is also at the rear and is a single room with further oak doors opening to the sizeable airing cupboard with hot water cylinder.

Outside
To the front the property is approached over a shared road leading to the development. Waterwheel Court is accessed over a shared gravelled driveway and there are two allocated parking spaces immediately to the front of the house. A side access path via a timber gate leads to the rear garden. The rear garden has been beautifully landscaped by the current owner making it very much an extension to the accommodation itself and a real feature of the property. Keen gardeners will appreciate there is enough to potter with and enjoy, whilst those looking for less to do will find it very adaptable to a lower maintenance style of living. A rear patio area with outside power sockets has a timber shed at the lower level, perfect for storage. Hamstone retaining walls include a set of sweeping stone steps that curve their way up gently to a slightly higher level, aided by discreet outside lighting, onto a substantial patio providing plenty of room to entertain and dine. The patio and adjacent lawn, are edged with cottage garden style borders thoughtfully planted with a range of shrubs, perennials and biennials including foxgloves, lavender and roses. An ornamental birch tree and a small apple tree provide focal points, whilst espalier crab apples help to provide additional privacy above the east boundary wall.

Agents Notes
As the phased development is still ongoing, the management company is not yet collecting any service charges for maintenance of communal areas and the responsibility for this is still under the control of the developers on site. The property will be sold with the remainder of the 10 year Premier guarantee.

The historic Grade II listed Tail Mill dates back to the 13th century. Originally constructed as a corn and grist mill it was converted to a sail cloth textile mill during the 1820's. Over the last few years a prestigious development has been taking place, retaining and converting many of the existing landmark buildings and interspersing these with attractive new build homes. Whilst further phases of the development are ongoing, the first phase has been completed and this property is one of just three planned detached homes, unexpectedly available due to the vendor’s relocation.

The village has an excellent range of local services including a garage, petrol station, general store, post office, pub, pharmacy (which will collect prescriptions and deliver medicines), and a pottery. There is a church, a chapel, and a village hall, tithe barn and social club which are all host to a wide range of activities. There is also a recreation ground with junior and senior play areas, cricket and football pitches, tennis courts and a bowling green, separate squash club and court. Crewkerne is a traditional market town with a range of shops including a Waitrose Supermarket and a main line railway station for the London, Waterloo to Exeter line.

There are good schools nearby, with local first school and pre-school at Merriott. Superb independent schools such as Perrott Hill School, and Chard Independent School within 15 minutes’ drive. Slightly further afield with 45 minutes’ drive there are other choices including those at Sherborne, Millfield (Street), Wellington, Taunton and Bruton.
