Well presented throughout, this extended period home has lots of character and charm, generous accommodation and a delightful walled garden.
Station House is a property with an interesting history having been purchased in the 1870s to form part of the Somerset and Dorset Joint railway. It became the Station Manager’s house and remained part of the railway until the 1960s. The property was then sold and was owned by the same family until 2011, when it was purchased by the current owners.
Station House benefits from modern comforts, including gas central heating and double glazed windows throughout. One of the main features of the property are the gardens which are fully enclosed and well planted with a variety of shrubs, trees and flora. The gardens are very private and enjoy a South-Westerly aspect, providing a pleasant place to sit and enjoy.
Inside, there is enough space to accommodate a family, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and three reception rooms. One of these reception rooms could easily be used as a 4th bedroom.
The Sitting Room is a fabulous room; double aspect, measuring 26ft x 12ft and has two pairs of French doors, opening to the garden.
The Kitchen features a range of modern fitted units with built in oven, gas hob and extractor, with space and plumbing for washing machine and a dishwasher. At one end of the kitchen, a door allows access to the Cellar.
The Breakfast Room, occupies probably the oldest part of the house and is adjacent to the Kitchen, featuring a wonderful flagstone floor. The Dining Room / Bedroom Four is an elegant room, measuring almost 18ft in length.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, two of which are doubles and there is a large family bathroom. Up above the landing area, a door opens to the Attic Room which can be accessed using a ladder.
Most certainly a fascinating home that should be viewed to be fully appreciated.
