About the Property

Cedar Tree House is an historic Grade 2 listed country house situated at the heart of the much-favoured hamlet of West Stoughton just a mile from the historic Saxon village of Wedmore. The house dates, we believe from 1720, with origins that may pre-date the Georgian period. It has evolved over this time and contains a wealth of period features including sash windows, flagstone and terracotta flooring, cornices and fine fireplaces. The house enjoys a natural flow that lends itself equally to very spacious family accommodation or dual occupancy. Outside it has an array of quality outbuildings including stables, barn and a home office that could be easily converted into further accommodation. There are large formal gardens and available by separate negotiation is a lovely pony paddock. Cedar Tree House is currently organised with 7 bedrooms, a large country kitchen with AGA, a very spacious family room with inglenook fireplace containing a Vermont Castings woodburning stove. The formal drawing room possesses an eighteenth century stone fireplace with marble inlay and a Jetmaster LOG burning fire flanked by inlaid cabinets. Further rooms downstairs include a snug with Adam style period fireplace, again with a marble inlay and Jetmaster fire, a dining room with French windows opening onto a large patio, a study with (non functional) Louis XIV French fireplace, a second kitchen, bathroom and boot room. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms one en-suite and two with adjoining bathrooms. The single bedrooms are sensibly proportioned and all incorporate yet more period features. Cedar Tree House is presented in a clear period style, reflecting its age and history yet possesses all the desirable contemporary features that reflect twenty first century lifestyle. Cedar Tree House has two central heating and sewage systems and could readily be divided into two separate properties at no appreciable cost.
