This stunning period residence occupies an elevated position on the favoured western side of Bridgwater in Wembdon and is within about a mile and a half away from the town centre.

The detached house is a truly beautiful example of a Victorian dwelling that has been further enhanced over the last 10 years by the current owners. The house has been subject to an extensive programme of renovation and refurbishment which has included the installation of a replacement central heating system, solid oak flooring, double-glazed hardwood windows, deep skirtings and Victorian-style coving.

A summer room extension was added in 2022 and a double garage was built in 2021.

The property is presented in excellent decorative order throughout, superbly blending its original character features with modern, contemporary additions.

Beyond a welcoming entrance hall, there are two well-appointed reception rooms with walk-in bay windows and solid-fuel fireplaces, while the dining room also benefits from hand-built traditional bookcases. The kitchen/breakfast room has been remodelled to create an open plan space with a beautifully fitted kitchen including an Aga gas range cooker. This leads to a light-filled summer room extension which has been built to exacting standards of thermal efficiency and has underfloor heating. Bi-fold doors open across the side and the back of this room onto the extensive patio outside.

On the first floor, there are four generous double bedrooms and a luxury Victorian-style family bathroom. The principal bedroom benefits from an ensuite shower room and walk-in wardrobe.

Outside, the landscaped rear garden offers a wealth of interest and colour, with an expanse of lawn and a large patio area with a historic well that has been exposed and fitted with an automatic pump. A highlight is the hydro pool swim spa that was upgraded last year to improve its efficiency.

At the front, the porcelain-tiled driveway provides parking for several vehicles and is bordered by a traditional stone and brick wall. A double garage can be found at the back of the house.
