Guide price

Bedrooms: 3

A very well-presented character cottage situated in the heart of the village of Woolavington. The property benefits from a south facing garden, parking for multiple vehicles and a useful double garage/workshop. No onward chain.

The Old Bakery occupies a slightly elevated position in the old part of Woolavington, a small village dating back to Saxon times situated along the western edge of the Polden Ridge in Somerset. Built of locally-mined blue lias stone, the cottage is some 300 years old in parts with later construction during the Victorian times. The cottage remained as the bakery for the village until the later part of the 20th Century when new premises were built nearby. The Old Bakery is now truly retired and now has become a comfortable, warm and inviting home.

The accommodation in brief comprises;

An entrance door leads into the hallway which has a beautiful stone feature wall and provides access to the living room and the utility/WC. The utility has space for a washing machine and dryer.

The living area is a light and spacious room with the fireplace being a particular feature, with a bread oven and currently fitted with an electric fire, an existing chimney could accommodate a wood burner subject to any necessary regulations. The room has characterful beams, artisan porcelain floor tiles throughout and stairs leading to the first floor. There are also French doors which lead out to a useful porch which provides access to the rear garden.

Following through from the living room you will find the dining area which is a very versatile room and can have many uses. The kitchen has been recently re-fitted by the current owner with an extensive range of wall, base and drawer units with oak worktops over. The kitchen is fitted with an integrated dishwasher and has space for an under counter fridge, freezer and range style cooker with gas and electric connections.

Upstairs the landing is light and airy with Velux's fitted and in the bedrooms also, providing an abundance of natural light. Bedroom one and two are good size doubles with plenty of space for storage and the third bedroom would make a great single room and home office. The shower room is fitted with a double size shower unit and has a useful storage cupboard housing the boiler.

Outside the rear south facing garden has been beautifully landscaped and has two good sized limestone patio areas. The garden has a side gate access and also gated access to the driveway. There is also a door into the double garage. The parking and garage is accessed by an attractive block-paved drive to which access is shared to a neighbouring property. Parking is available for 2 vehicles plus ample roadside parking for visitors subject to availability. The double garage could also house another vehicle or would make a fantastic home office, workshop or hobbies room.

A number of improvements have been made by the current owner and an early viewing is strongly advised to fully appreciate this beautiful cottage.

The property is situated on the edge of the village of Woolavington, with open views to the rear aspect over farmland and Polden Hills beyond. The village lies some 5 miles north east of the market town of Bridgwater. Within the village there are local facilities which include a Church, Primary School and Co-op store with Post Office counter. Bridgwater offers a wider range of shopping and leisure facilities, as does Street with the popular Clarks Village. The M5 Motorway Junction 23 is within 2 miles, thus facilitating communications north to Bristol and south to the County Town of Taunton. There are also local bus services and a mainline train station can be found in Bridgwater.
