Property SummaryA gem of a Period property in the centre of Bruton - 21 Quaperlake Street is a particularly spacious three storey, end of terrace, double-fronted property . This pretty home is ideally located as only a three minute walk from Bruton high street, Osip restaurant and farm shop and well-known @theChapel and a five minute walk to the open country side. This Grade II listed house is full of character, and forms part of the building that housed the first site of Sexey’s school in the 1600s, with a particular feature being the original wooden spiral staircase.
From the front door to the right is the drawing room a cool, very characterful space with an unusually high ceiling and huge Georgian window, open fireplace and original wooden flooring. On the left of the hallway is the good size/ farmhouse style kitchen, providing a perfect space for entertaining between the two rooms. The kitchen is dual aspect with a south facing window. Off the kitchen is a small boot room, ground floor guest WC and a door to the courtyard (which has rear access to the parking space).
The spiral staircase leads to the large en suite bedrooms, each taking up an entire floor, both with dual aspect windows. The first-floor bedroom has a shower room with loo. This room could easily be converted to create 2 bedrooms. The master bedroom, the same size, has an original window dating back hundreds of years, with a pretty window seat as well as excellent attic-style storage in the boiler cupboard and a further cupboard. A door from the master bedroom leads into a home office area with fitted bookshelves, and continues to a spacious bathroom/dressing room, with plenty of clothes and toiletries storage.
There is a large attic which with the relevant planning could potentially be converted.
A door from the kitchen area leads to a pretty sunny courtyard with whitewashed walls giving it a Mediterranean feel, ideal for eating outside in the summer. There is plenty of space for a table and chairs and a few pots. The private parking space is accessed from the courtyard.
Quaperlake is in the centre of Bruton and adjoins the high street. Number 21 is on a T-junction which means it is not overlooked by houses directly opposite and to the side is a wide area of shared off road parking.
Bruton is a fashionable and popular town in the heart of the Somerset countryside. The town has several well-known restaurants, pubs and bars including “At the Chapel” and “The Roth Bar” at the world-renowned Hauser & Wirth Gallery. The town also has a doctors surgery, pharmacy, vet, post office, several mini supermarkets, fuel station and numerous independent shops and Mill on the Brue activity centre.
There are excellent local independent schools include King’s School Bruton, Bruton School for Girls and also the state owned boarding school - Sexey's. Bruton has a primary school and in close proximity are Millfield, Hazelgrove and All Hallows prep schools.
From the high street continue onto Quaperlake street. The property can be found approx 100 yards on the right hand side. From the A359 as you enter Bruton the property can be found on the left hand side near the high street.
