This late Georgian, Grade II listed residence occupies an elevated position on a 0.21-acre plot in Crewkerne, within a short walking distance of the town centre and a host of amenities.

The five-bedroom townhouse has an attractive double-fronted design of hamstone and has a history dating back to Georgian times with added enhancements that are more typical of the Victorian era. In addition to the main dwelling, there is a detached cottage/annexe in the garden that would work well for visiting guests or for the extended family.

Inside, the main house is superbly appointed and has been sympathetically refurbished to enhance the property’s original character and introduce all the creature comforts expected for modern life.

Beyond the reception hall, there is a large sitting room with an ornate fireplace and original sash windows flanked by shutters, while the separate dining room/family room has an original marble fireplace with slim fluted half-columns with lion paws carved on the bases. There is also a study/breakfast area, a generous garden room with a central lantern skylight, and a large kitchen/breakfast room with an original bread oven.

On the first floor, there are four double bedrooms, plus a large, well-appointed family bathroom and a separate shower room that have both benefitted from a recent renovation. A fifth double bedroom can be found on the second floor along with a useful study/office/playroom area.

Outside, the detached former coach house is now used as a separate annexe/studio and has a sitting room/bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, a separate kitchen and a wet room.

Large gardens can be found at the back of the property and are mainly laid to lawn, with an abundance of mature shrubs/bushes and beautiful trees. A gravelled terrace area is used for alfresco dining and there is also a handy storage shed and summerhouse.

At the front, the garage can be accessed via double timber doors providing off-road parking for at least two cars.
