THE AGENTS SAYS...
Set in a conservation area, the house, of which East Grove forms part, was built around 1860 and is Grade II listed. The division of the building into two separate dwellings has been thoughtfully done and East Grove is a spacious and functional modern home that retains the charm of the original building. Extension by the current owners has created a garden room, utility, downstairs cloakroom and en-suite bedroom upstairs. A high specification refurbishment throughout includes electric underfloor heating in all the ground floor rooms, in addition to the gas central heating. Outside, the total plot extends to a 1/3rd of an acre and the garden has been beautifully landscaped to create a range of zones and is a real gardeners garden, perfect for entertaining. East Grove is a freehold property and the drive is private, East Grove only (the entrance area is the sole shared space).
Entry to the property is on the east side, via solid wooden double gates. The entry door leads into the pretty, double- aspect garden room with a utility room and separate WC off to the left. This room leads through to a small hall which opens to the sitting room and the kitchen. The sitting room has an attractive stone fireplace; wooden floors; wide, floor to ceiling window; and plenty of space to accommodate a formal dining area in addition to relaxed seating. The stunning, smart modern kitchen with handleless, high gloss units, has all Neff Appliances including 3 ovens (one being a microwave oven), warming plate and induction hob; hot/cold filtered water tap and integrated dishwasher. The generous island has seating for breakfast/informal dining, an exposed beam adds character, and the red splash back warms the scheme. The entire ground floor has electric underfloor heating. Stairs rise from the kitchen to the first floor.
Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, the family bathroom and separate boiler room. The master bedroom has a lovely calm feel, with its pretty cast iron fireplace and a full wall of wardrobe space. Bedroom 2 is a very generous size enjoying a double aspect and the en-suite is beautifully appointed with a wonderfully large walk-in shower. Bedroom 3 is a good size double. The spacious family bathroom has a full length jacuzzi bath to properly relax in, separate shower and wash basin vanity unit which also conceals the toilet cistern.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
From the road a sweeping driveway leads up to the property where there is plenty of off road parking and a single garage with a pedestrian door out to the garden and property entrance. Outside the garden room is a paved area with a smart greenhouse and many colourful potted shrubs. Up a couple of steps, immediately behind the property, is a lovely patio dining area with terraced retaining walls and planted borders. Further steps lead up to a large lawn which is dotted with mature trees, including fruit trees, and also features raised beds, a storage shed, summerhouse and seating area. The garden is very private and fully enclosed by walls and fencing.
East Grove is tucked away just a stones throw from the centre of Crewkerne with very little passing traffic. The town features beautiful architecture, with the majority of buildings dating from the Georgian period and constructed of the local mellow stone. The town has an excellent range of amenities including shops and businesses, a Waitrose supermarket and mainline rail link to London Waterloo. The surrounding countryside is attractive rolling farmland and there is easy road access to the larger regional centres of Yeovil and Taunton, as well as the Dorset Jurassic Coastline.
Mains water, electricity and drainage. Gas fired central heating with underfloor on the ground floor.
