A superb five bedroom, five en-suite, period townhouse, steeped in history and offering huge amounts of living space. Situated opposite the Glastonbury Abbey in the centre of town, with enviable views over the Abbey grounds. EPC rating C.

Magdalene House forms part of the former Abbey School and latterly Millfield School, having been converted into superb residential properties in 2006. More recently run as a successful Bed and Breakfast, this spacious property lends itself fantastically as a family home or potential business for those looking for somewhere secure yet set within the heart of this vibrant and historical town. Accessed via twin hardwood doors, you are welcomed into the home through the spacious entrance hall with ample fitted storage, space by the staircase for a desk and attractive tiled flooring. From here, you will find a downstairs shower and utility room to the right, the main sitting room to the left and the large kitchen/dining room to the rear of the house. The shower and utility room are fitted with a white suite comprising a shower enclosure, w/c and pedestal wash basin, as well as benefitting from plumbing for laundry facilities. The sitting room enjoys large sash windows looking towards the Abbey grounds and, like most of the rooms in the property, has the benefit of fitted shutters and complementary features including period style cornicing and ceiling rose. The kitchen/dining room is a really generous size and is fitted with a range of cream-fronted wall and base units with oak worktops over. There is enough space for a large dining table, as well as fitted appliances including a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. In the centre of the kitchen is a large, movable kitchen island which provides further workspace for keen cooks, as well as plenty of built-in drawers. Further benefits include a large 7-ring range oven with a tiled splash back and cooker hood, as well as a fitted stainless steel sink and drainer unit. To the rear, further sash windows and the large original school door leading into the sunroom, which has an attractively tiled floor and French doors that open onto the rear garden and parking area. On the first floor, to the left, as you come up the stairs is the first of five generous bedrooms, all with en-suite wash facilities. This bedroom offers plenty of space, along with an en-suite with a fitted shower bath, w/c and pedestal wash basin, a fitted storage cupboard and an outlook to the rear aspect. To the right, a further corridor splits off to provide access to the two additional bedrooms. The first is a generous double, with a lovely outlook over the Abbey grounds, as well as an en-suite comprising a panelled bath, wash basin and w/c, as well as attractive tiling, whilst to the left of the corridor is a smaller double bedroom. Currently used as a store room, this room also has a pleasant view over the Abbey and steps leading up to a mezzanine level en-suite that includes a shower tub, w/c and wash basin, as well as a small dressing area. On the second floor, again there are two very generous double bedrooms leading off from the landing. To the front, again the bedroom makes the most of the views and daylight, with two large sash windows overlooking the Abbey, as well as an en-suite shower, w/c and wash basin. To the rear aspect is another large bedroom with an en-suite shower bath, w/c and wash basin.

The property is situated on Magdalene Street in the centre of Glastonbury, opposite the historic Abbey ruins and just a very short walk from the High Street with its good range of shops, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, health centres etc. The historic town of Glastonbury is famous for its Tor and Abbey Ruins and is 6 miles from the Cathedral City of Wells whilst Street, with its more comprehensive range of facilities including both indoor and outdoor swimming pools, Strode Theatre, Strode College and the complex of shopping outlets in Clarks Village, is 2 miles. The nearest M5 motorway interchange at Dunball (Junction 23) is 14 miles whilst Bristol, Bath, Taunton and Yeovil are all within commuting distance.

Externally, there is a gated driveway to the rear providing off-road parking for 1-2 cars, which is a perfect addition to the central location. The rear garden has been neatly landscaped to keep it both attractive and low maintenance. A patio seating area with complementary shingle areas, an attractive water feature and gated rear access to the parking area bounded by timber fencing.
