21 The Borough is a Grade II Listed Georgian home located at the heart of historic Montacute. The property has been sensitively restored retaining much of the original character but also incorporating some modern features, making this a very attractive and comfortable home. The entrance door provides access to a wide hall with a flagstone floor. Three reception rooms can be reached from here, arranged as a dining room, a farmhouse style breakfast room and a sitting room in which an impressive Inglenook fireplace, wooden floor and window seat will be found. The kitchen, connected to the breakfast room via an open doorway and glassless stone mullion window, is fitted with attractive contemporary units and appliances including a range-style cooker and integrated dishwasher. Bi-folding doors to the garden ensure that this room is filled with light. From the kitchen a door leads to the utility with housing for the boiler and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also a ground floor cloakroom.
From the rear hall, a staircase rises to a first floor landing with a vaulted ceiling and an arched window to the rear. The master bedroom enjoys countryside views and benefits from built-in wardrobes and an en suite shower room. Three further bedrooms can also be found on the first floor, two of which are of generous double proportions with built-in storage. The family bathroom is well appointed with a stylish suite including a free standing bath tub, a wooden floor and a sash window to the rear.
Detached from the main house, the garden room and workshop building offers great scope for a variety of uses. With double doors on two sides, a mezzanine storage area above the workshop and a working wood burner, the garden room is a delightful space which is ideal for use as an all-weather place to enjoy the garden, but could be adapted to provide ancillary accommodation or an office for those working from home. The workshop is thoughtfully equipped with power, light and a butler's sink.OUTSIDE
The garden has been attractively landscaped to create a walled oasis which enjoys a private, sunny aspect. A level lawn, box hedging and well-stocked flower beds, among which are many wonderful places to sit and relax, are connected by gravel and flagstone paths. Another feature within the garden is a stone privy in the far corner of the plot. This building is Grade II Listed in its own right, as it is thought to be one of only a handful of such structures remaining intact in the county.
The property benefits from direct access to the rear through a side gate. Double wooden doors lead beneath a stone arch, which open into a gravelled courtyard. There is also a gate at the back of the garden giving access to a right of way across a neighbouring property to Middle Street.SITUATION
