A beautifully presented, 4 bedroom property with garage and good-sized gardens, conveniently located just a short walk from the amenities of Axminster Town Centre.
1 Purzebrook House is a Grade II Listed, intriguing and substantial property, located in an exceptionally convenient location just a short walk from the amenities of Axminster town centre. The property has origins believed to date back to the 18th Century when it was built as a detached dwelling which was subsequently divided into the current arrangement of three properties, and number 1 comprises the North-East Wing. The property was extended into the attached barn/granary in the late 80's to form the unique and interesting property we find today.
A thorough schedule of works have been completed at the property since 2008 and these works have been finished to an exceptional standard. Worthy of particular mention is the remodelling of the first floor to create accommodation which is flexible in its arrangement, being separated and accessed via two staircases, making it an ideal home for those with extended family, older children or potentially for generating an income.
The garden is a particular feature of this town centre house and has been redesigned by the current owners. It contains mixed herbaceous borders, a greenhouse and vegetable growing areas and 8 productive fruit trees. It also incorporates several separate sitting and eating areas, offering a high degree of privacy together with a summerhouse currently used as a writer's studio.
