This deceptively spacious home comprises 4/5 double bedrooms and three good size reception rooms, all arranged over three floors. The property enjoys: high ceilings, large windows, and many period features such as ceiling cornicing and original fireplaces which have been sympathetically restored and presented. Outside is a very pretty rear garden, and one off road parking space, as well as parking along the road.
Steps lead to the original porch with stained glass panels. The front door leads to a beautiful hallway with restored mosaic tiled floor and stained-glass window. The house is light and welcoming. From here, a stunning staircase leads up through the house to the first and second floor.
From the entrance hall doors lead off to;
A large sitting room with a working period fireplace with marble surround and antique pine floorboards. Large front aspect window. This room provides a lovely large entertaining space.
The dining room enjoys French doors opening onto the rear garden, along with a window with front aspect, a working period fireplace and antique pine floorboards. This room also houses a very impressive Gin collection, however sadly this is not included in the sale.
The kitchen/breakfast room is well equipped with range of painted solid oak fronted units under an oak work surface with recess for Range cooker with pretty tiled splash back. There is room for good size kitchen table and chairs. Rear aspect door and window opening onto the garden.
Directly off the kitchen is the utility room with flagstone flooring, a range of units with butler sink, and space for washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a handy cloakroom/WC and boiler room cupboard housing the oil-fired central heating boiler, and providing useful extra shelving.
Through the utility is found the garden room/office that was completed last year, creating a lovely versatile space with full width bifold doors opening onto the garden with views directly across to the church. We feel this is a real treat for anyone looking to work from home, to have as a child’s playroom close to the kitchen, and opening onto the garden, or indeed, a useful downstairs bedroom with WC facilities being right next door.
The stairs lead and turn to the first floor. A large stained-glass window on the half landing allows plenty of light up the stairs and onto the good size landing, with balcony overlooking Middle Street.
Doors lead to the bedrooms and stylish fully metro tiled family bathroom comprising; walk in shower, large double ended bath, wash hand basin and WC. Window to rear.
The main bedroom on this floor is particularly large, with front aspect window.
The other two bedrooms on this floor are also both good size double rooms, each beautifully presented to emphasise the period features this property offers.
From the landing a new staircase leads to the very impressive and brand-new principal bedroom suite on the second floor. This spacious loft conversion has a large feature window at the far end with an additional two large Velux windows. A large shower area, enclosed WC, and hand basin. This room is an excellent room a little further away from the rest of the house, for either guests or as a primary bedroom suite.
The enclosed cottage style garden enjoys a slightly elevated position. This garden is ideal for owners who do not wish, or have time, for too much upkeep, but who wish to enjoy a sunny spot in which to sit and appreciate all the colours of the flower beds, and view across to the Church.
A gate opens onto the parking bay that is at the end of the garden (accessed from Robins Lane). Parking can also be found outside the property along Middle Street.
The Gables is situated within walking distance of all the village amenities. Shepton Beauchamp is a pretty village comprising over 300 properties, good local facilities including village café with small shop, hairdressers / beauty salon, popular village pub, parish church, lovely small primary school and pre-school, and toddler group. There is also a recreation ground with MUGA (multi use pitch), as well as Cowleaze Meadow, which is just a short walk from the Gables, providing a great outside space for picnics, children to play and dog walking etc.
There is a good sense of community with plenty of events throughout the year. The village Facebook page or indeed the website, are good places to check out what’s going on locally throughout the year. The village is located within a mile of Barrington, with its well-known National Trust property Barrington Court. Ilminster lies approximately 4 miles to the south-west with its super range of facilities independent shops, supermarket and health centre.
