Seymour House, Wellsway, BLACKFORD, Wedmore, Somerset
Seymour House is a spacious and versatile family home in a popular position and in a plot thought to measure just under a third of an acre. Within a short walk of Hugh Sexey Middle School, there have only been three owners since the property was built in 1947. The current owners purchased the property in 1994 and have spent considerable time, effort and expense updating, improving and modernising this attractive detached house. On the ground floor there are two front receptions rooms, a conservatory, a large kitchen breakfast room and a utility area. There is also a ground floor bedroom, shower room and study. With separate access this area lends itself to an elderly relative or a teenager. Upstairs there is the family bathroom and a further three bedrooms, including the master bedroom with an en suite shower room. Outside there is a further utility room, a useful stone built workshop and a covered walk way on the side of the house. The very private garden has been maintained to an excellent standard, is mainly laid to lawn and has a selection of well established trees and mature plants. The large front garden has a gravelled drive offering off road parking for at up to six cars with scope for more if required.
