This elegant Edwardian house occupies an enclosed private plot in a premier residential area of Bridgwater, within easy walking distance to the town centre and all of its amenities.

It is believed that the five-bedroom detached property was constructed in 1906 and it is filled with typical features seen in properties built at that time such as stained glass windows, open fireplaces, high ceilings, picture rails and cornicing.

Inside, beyond the spacious entrance hall with its tessellated tiled flooring and stained-glass porthole window, there are four reception rooms.

The sitting room is well-proportioned with a focal open fireplace and French doors that open to a bright and airy garden room with cool stone flooring. The dining room has a lovely corner bow window with fitted seating and an open fireplace, while the study has good proportions and a dual aspect. The kitchen/breakfast room has a timeless, classic look with its fitted cupboards, oil-fired Aga and access to a butler’s pantry.

On the first floor, a galleried landing leads to five good-sized bedrooms and a family bathroom with a freestanding bath with claw feet and a separate shower cubicle. The principal bedroom benefits from fitted mirror-fronted wardrobes and an ensuite shower room, while the main guest bedroom also has an ensuite shower room.

Outside, the large, beautifully landscaped rear garden is south-facing and fully enclosed by walling, laurel hedging and fencing. The garden is well established with lawns, a variety of flowerbeds, mature shrubs and trees, and pathways encased with a pergola and mature wisteria. At the back of the garden sits a brick and tile entertainment area with a built-in barbecue and stone seating.

At the front, electrically operated gates open to a large driveway with ample space for parking and leading to a detached garage. The remainder of the front garden has mature shrubs and trees providing privacy from Durleigh Road.
