This magnificent 4-bedroom town house with a two bedroom annex stands in the heart of Nunney, one of Somerset’s most historical villages.
Beautiful five bedroom house in the heart of the popular village of Nunney. Well maintained, and crammed with character and period features, this lovely home has versatile accommodation over three floors, and includes the option of a self contained apartment with separate access.
The characterful front door of no 7 opens into a small lobby which gives privacy from the road. The glass paned door from the lobby opens into the sitting room which has a large window onto the front which used to be a shop window in one of the property’s previous incarnations. There is also a window on the other side of the sitting room which looks out over the patio area at the rear of the house. The sitting room has a lovely cosy feel.
The kitchen is also very light, having velux window in the ceiling. Attractive wooden units and granite worktops line the walls, and there is also a generous shelved area to accommodate a dining table. Meals are cooked on an electric Rangemaster cooker.
Off the kitchen is a utility room with a downstairs toilet, a cellar, and stairs to further rooms which are currently used as an office and a bedroom. The bedroom has a window with views over the garden as well as a velux window which gives a great view of the Church tower. This suite of rooms could become an annexe for a teenager or relative, or could even be used as a separate let or Air bnb as it can be accessed via a separate side entrance.
The other four bedrooms are located on the first and second floors, up a staircase which runs from the sitting room, alongside an attractive wall with exposed stonework On the first floor are two double bedrooms and a large shower room with a walk in shower cubicle. On the second floor are the master bedroom with en suite bathroom and a single bedroom. The bedrooms on this floor are full of character as they have exposed beams, sloping ceilings and low positioned windows.
The house leads directly from Church Street at the front. There is a side access which leads down the side of the house to the rear garden. A courtyard garden with flower beds and shrubs sits at the rear of the house, with a door into the side of the property which could be used as separate access to part of the house. A path leads up to an elevated seating area which has lovely views across to Nunney Castle in one direction and the Church in another, and is a sun trap in which to sit and while away the day.! There is on street parking for cars in the road outside.
