Description

Egan House is an attractive detached period property enjoying a delightful tranquil location in the beautiful West Somerset countryside. The property is believed to date from the 17th Century. The current owners have skilfully and sympathetically extended and refurbished the house to create a beautifully appointed and well-proportioned family home. Whilst carrying out the refurbishment the owners have retained many of the period features including an inglenook fireplace and heavy beamed ceilings. The accommodation has been further enhanced by the addition of an Amdega garden room and a ground floor bedroom with en-suite. The property has oil fired central heating and double glazing throughout.

Accommodation

The accommodation includes a solid oak front door, which leads through to an entrance hallway with a boot room and a door which opens through to the sitting room with a deep inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, heavily beamed ceiling and a recess to a study area. There is a staircase to the first floor and an opening through to the kitchen / breakfast room. The kitchen area is fitted with a range of matching wall and base units with granite work surfaces and a range of integrated appliances including a four oven Aga. There is an opening through to a glazed reception room, which enjoys wonderful views and includes a tiled floor. There is also access to a good sized reception room / utility room with doors leading out to the patio. There is a fabulous Amdega garden room with a lantern roof and double doors leading out to the side of the property. The garden room, kitchen, reception room and utility room all benefit from marble tiled flooring.

 

From the entrance hallway of the property there is access to a ground floor (Fifth) bedroom with a vaulted ceiling with Velux windows and an en-suite shower room.

 

On the first floor, there are four good size bedrooms. The master bedroom is double aspect with wonderful views of the Quantock Hills and doors leading out onto a balcony. There is a separate bathroom and a shower room and one of the bedrooms benefits from an en-suite shower.

Outside

The house is situated in a wonderful elevated position with a sweeping driveway that leads from the lane up to the garage and a brick paved parking area with garden that extends to the front and side of the house. The driveway has parking for at least 5-6 vehicles. The gardens that surround the property are predominately laid to lawn and include a number of mature specimen trees and shrubs. There is a timber built double garage with a gate leading to an enclosed yard with a three bay stable block. These all have electricity, light and power and have been converted by the current owners, to provide an additional office space but could be converted back to stabling, if required. There is an attached tack room to one side and a gate leading to the paddock, which is gently sloping, laid to pasture and enclosed by maturing hedgerow.

 

There is a rear gate to the property, which provides direct access onto woodland and walking tracks suitable for rambling, cycling and dog walking.
