The Old Bakery is a beautifully presented and unique property peacefully and privately located in the centre of Crewkerne, enjoying stunning gardens and views over the town s roof tops. The property comprises a detached main house as well as a detached annexe which has previously been used as an architect studio. The two dwellings are linked by a stunning Mediterranean influenced courtyard which enjoys total privacy.
It is believed that the main house dated back to the 17th century and it is clear from its architectural features that it began life as a chapel. Subsequently it was as its name suggests, a bakery, and ultimately turned into a residential dwelling. The property is built of local stone elevations under tiled roofs and has sealed unit double glazing and both dwellings have independent gas-fired central heating (under floor heating on both ground floors).
The entrance door under storm canopy leads into a tiled hallway with door into lobby housing dishwasher and door into cloakroom. The kitchen/breakfast room has a tiled floor and custom made range of units comprising cupboards, drawers and a built-in dining table. There is a built-in gas hob with extractor hood over and electric oven. Boiler cupboard housing gas boiler (installed December 2013). The sitting room/dining room is in the oldest part of the property and is a fine double aspect room with double doors leading to the courtyard. Multi-fuel stove, staircase with under stairs cupboard leading to first floor landing with linen cupboard. There are two guest bedrooms; one is a most attractive double aspect room with ocular window, timber floor, built-in cupboard and views over the roof tops. Bedroom three is currently used as a study and has timber floor and fine long range country views. There is a family bathroom comprising bath, separate shower, wc and vanity unit with basin.
