This characterful Victorian residence sits in the centre of sought-after Milverton, a beautiful village in the Vale of Taunton Deane that is largely made up of Georgian properties and surrounded by rolling countryside, and just eight miles away from Taunton.

The charming period property, named Lambe House, dates back to the 1800s and was once the village school. It has now been beautifully converted into a comfortable dwelling with four bedrooms and three reception rooms. The house is packed with character with its attractive façade with mellow sandstone elevations, while internally it has many individual features including vaulted ceilings, large windows and mezzanine levels.

The property offers well-proportioned living space over two floors. The reception hall leads into a stunning living room with vaulted ceilings and a wood-burning stove, and it provides access to a gallery area with a study. The living room also leads onto an impressive hallway with a splendid turning staircase that rises to the first floor. The kitchen has a modern contemporary look with cream shaker-style units, wooden worksurfaces and lovely wooden flooring. There is also a dining room with an opening that leads to a separate utility area, a shower room, and a second kitchen.

On the first floor, there are four double bedrooms including a dressing area and the potential to create an en-suite, if required. There is a fitted family bathroom suite and a study/playroom area.

Outside, the rear garden offers a good degree of privacy and has a secluded decking/patio area located right next to the back of the house. A pathway leads to a larger garden area which features an expanse of lawn and is surrounded by deep herbaceous borders, flower beds, and various specimen trees.

In addition, there is a useful storage building within the grounds that was formally the village firehouse and has Grade II listed status. This can be accessed directly from Sand Street and has annexe potential, subject to the necessary planning consents. Three further outbuildings also provide useful extra storage space.

At the front, the house is approached over a joint driveway and has enough parking space for three to four vehicles.
