A charming and unique character filled home situated at the heart of the old village area of Bothenhampton. The Coach House is believed to date back to the 1800s and has had an interesting history where it originally fell within the curtilage of The Old Rectory. During recent years the property has been lovingly extended and renovated to present as a very well-considered and attractive home. The Coach House is of stone and colour washed rendered elevations beneath a slate roof.
The accommodation offers; light entrance porch leading to an entrance hall with a handy downstairs shower room and WC, an attractive sitting room at the heart of the home with slate and stone floors which overlooks the garden, this leads on to a further ancillary room/ bedroom three which has an outside entrance and also houses the boiler and enjoys built-in storage and has plenty of room for a double bed.
The exceptionally generous kitchen breakfast room office space for any family's needs with a snug area with a feature fireplace and multifuel burner to one end and a whole host of well fitted kitchen units including built-in appliances at the other end of the room where there is space for a large family kitchen table. This room could suit a whole host of configurations to suit one's needs and is a fantastic dining and entertaining space. From this room sliding doors lead to a generous conservatory which makes the most of views across the garden and brings a great deal of light into the property. Upstairs both bedrooms are very well proportioned, the master is more than generous with ample built in storage and a very substantial airing cupboard. The current owners have added a very well-appointed contemporary shower room. The views from the master bedroom and from the small landing area at the top of the stairs are most exceptional, where picture windows make the most of the far-reaching views across the gardens and grounds of The Old Rectory taking in parts of their orchard and rolling grassy banks. The second bedroom is again a generous double room having built-in storage. A family bathroom is also located upstairs which enjoys a new shower. All of the accommodation benefits from a good level of finish with Oak doors and great attention to detail throughout.OUTSIDE
