Property Summary

An immaculate, energy-efficient property on a private lane with gardens, a detached single garage, a modern kitchen/diner, downstairs WC, separate utility room and master bedroom with en-suite.

Within easy reach of a selection of good schools, less than a mile from the town centre and not far from the Somerset coast, this is a property to suit a growing family looking for a long-term home in a delightful but convenient corner of the West Country.

Location
The property is on a quiet private lane off Durleigh Road, a sought-after residential area comprising mostly detached homes approximately a kilometre south-west from the centre of Bridgwater. Buses run from stops close to the property to both the town centre and to Nether Stowey while Great Western Railway services from the station - approximately two kilometres from the house – connect with Cardiff, Taunton, Weston Super Mare, Paignton and Bristol. The area is well-served by local schools; primary education options include St Mary’s Primary School, Westover Green Community School and Penrose School – all rated as “good” at their last inspections by Ofsted and all within a kilometre of the house. Haygrove School, offering secondary education, is under 400 metres away and was also rated as “good” in 2016. A large Morrison’s superstore and filling station and a B&M Homestore and garden centre are located on The Broadway just over a kilometre from the house while Bridgwater town centre boasts a good selection of pubs, restaurants, bars and cafes, high-street chain stores and independent shops, banks and pleasant walks along the River Parrett. The proximity of the M5 makes travelling further afield by car relatively easy while, for those considering travel abroad, Bristol Airport can be reached by road in under an hour.

Exterior
Divided from the road by a low brick wall, a gravelled drive offers off-road parking for several vehicles and leads to a detached single garage with pitched roof and up-and-over door. Head-high timber fence panels mark the boundaries either side while a separate lawned garden is accessed via

a gate through a picket fence which opens onto a flagstone path leading to the front door, located beneath a covered porch.
The path also continues between the detached garage and the house to a flagstone patio to the rear of the property surrounded by slatted wooden bench seats. The terrace provides ample space for outdoor entertaining in the summer months and is surrounded by raised beds planted with flowers. Steps lead down to a lawn, surrounded by ornamental shrubs and head-high fence panels offering a degree of privacy from neighbouring homes.

Interior
The front door opens onto a reception hall fitted with a luxury vinyl floor and wall-mounted radiator. A solid-wooden internal door to the left opens onto the lounge while another glass-panelled wooden door leads to the kitchen/diner. Stairs rise to the first floor on the right, another solid-wood internal door offers access to the downstairs WC while a white-painted wooden door opens onto a storage cupboard beneath the stairwell.

A large bay window with a wall-mounted radiator beneath lets plenty of light into the lounge, which is carpeted, equipped with a TV point and boasts a feature fireplace fitted with a gas stove with a solid wood mantle above.

However, perhaps one of the property’s outstanding features is the kitchen/diner. Fitted with a luxury vinyl floor matching the hallway, part is currently used by the vendors as a second reception room. However, already fitted with telephone sockets, it could equally be used as a study - and still leave plenty of room for a dining table and chairs. Ceiling-mounted recessed LED spotlights offer plenty of light after dark while bi-fold glass doors open onto the patio, adding to the sense of space in the summer.

The kitchen space is divided from the rest of the room by a preparation island, with solid wood worktop and incorporating storage units, integral shelving and a wine rack beneath. It also includes a squared-shaped composite sink with rinsing bowl, drainer and contemporary mixer tap. There is a galley-style cooking area, including a four-ring induction hob beneath a concealed extractor, an eye-level double oven and grill, an integral fridge/freezer and separate wine cooler as well as additional base and wall units above and below a second solid-wood worktop.

A door leads from the kitchen into a separate utility room with its own sink and storage space as well as an external door opening onto the pathway along the side of the house to the rear garden.

The stairs to the first floor rise to a carpeted landing with internal doors opening onto three double and one single bedroom. The master includes an en suite shower room fitted with a low-level WC with dual flush; a pedestal sink with vinyl splash screen beneath a wall-mounted mirror; and a heated, ladder-style towel rail in chrome. All the remaining bedrooms are carpeted, tastefully decorated and fitted with wall-mounted radiators.

The house bathroom includes a tiled floor; WC with dual flush; a square-shaped pedestal sink with chrome mixer tap below a recessed mirror with shelving beneath; a white panel bath with central mixer tap; and a shower cubicle with sliding, wrap-around glass door.

Equipped with a modern gas-fired central heating system with zone control and separate WiFi enabled thermostat, high-performance glazing and with low-energy lighting in all fixed points, the property has been awarded a higher-than-average B rating on its EPC.
