Acacia Cottage, Combe Batch, WEDMORE, Somerset
PERIOD HOME IN A CENTRAL VILLAGE LOCATION .... Acacia Cottage is a charming three bedroom family home within a short walk of the popular village of Wedmore and all it amenities. This spacious and light Grade II listed terraced property is thought to date back in parts around 200 years. The current owners have extended and improved this period property whilst retaining many of the original features including a lovely inglenook fireplace in the sitting room. Recent improvements included a new boiler and an extension at the rear in 2013 to create a wonderful open plan kitchen and dining room, very much in keeping with modern day family living. Finished to a very high standard and measuring 27' x 15' this room is a real feature of the house with bi fold doors opening out to the patio and the south west facing garden. There is an elevated garden at the front which could easily be excavated to create an off road parking space. At the rear there is a large patio area with ample space for a table and chairs with steps up to the remainder of the garden which is mainly laid to lawn.

Steps up from the road and a path lead to a wooden six panelled Gothic style front door with obscured glazed inserts with emphasised pilasters either side. The wide and inviting entrance hall has stairs up to the first floor accommodation, a storage cupboard and exposed ceiling beams. Off of the hall at the front of the property is the sitting room. A well proportioned room with a deep set three light casement window with glazing bars to the front aspect with wooden shutters. Additional features include the Inglenook fire place with a wooden mantle, a brick built fireplace with inset wood burner on a flagstone hearth and a recessed alcove incorporating a wooden seat. A door from the sitting room leads to the family room with a feature fireplace with multi courted tiled inserts and shelving in the alcoves either side. From the family room and also accessed from the hall is the lovely light and spacious kitchen breakfast room with bi fold doors leading out to the patio and rear garden. Part of an extension in 2013, this contemporary addition nicely compliments this period property. There is a range of wooden wall and base units with granite work surfaces over. A Belfast style twin sink unit and space for a range cooker with fitted extractor hood over. Integrated dishwasher, a recess with plumbing for an American style fridge freezer and a central kitchen island with a wooden work top and a warming drawer. Natural limestone tiled floor with under floor heating and recessed down lighting. There is also ample space for a dining table and chairs. Off of the kitchen is the utility room with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, wall mounted combination boiler and limestone tiled flooring with under floor heating to match the kitchen. The utility also doubles up as a downstairs WC with a suite comprising a low level WC and a wall mounted wash hand basin. Stairs from the hall lead up to the first floor accommodation with a spacious split level landing with access to the loft space and a storage cupboard. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, two of which are very spacious double bedrooms to the front aspect and a large single room to the rear. There is also a family bathroom overlooking the rear garden with a panelled bath with shower over, counter top wash hand basin with a storage cupboard under and a low level WC.

About the Property

Acacia Cottage is thought to date back in parts around 200 years and following a drive by in the 1985 the property became grade II listed. The current owners purchased the property in 2008 and have extended and improved the property throughout. In 2013 they extended the property at the rear to create a wonderful open plan kitchen dining area. The work was carried out to a very high standard including natural stone floor tiles with under floor heating and bi fold doors leading out to the patio and rear garden. The owners replaced the boiler at the same time in 2013 and installed the working wood burner in the sitting room back in 2010. Behind a wall in the kitchen, which backs on to the family room there is a cavity which subject to the right adaptations could provide enough room to install an in wall wood burner. The attic is mostly boarded providing excellent storage.


Main gas, electricity, water and drainage are all connected. At the time of preparing these details the council tax band through Sedgemoor District Council is: C.
