A Grade II listed converted coach house in Midelney, near Curry Rivel and Drayton, Somerset
A sympathetically converted coach house with four bedrooms, a wealth of original features and good sized gardens set in a rural idyll, on the edge of the Somerset village of Drayton
The Old Coach House is a character filled conversion of a mellow brick and Hamstone barn formerly part of the Midelney Manor estate.
This Grade II Listed property was sympathetically converted in the late 1990s and the vendors have lived there since 'new' contributing to and sustaining a home of great quality, flair and attention to detail.
Combining high quality workmanship with the use of discreet oak-framed double glazed window units and the retention of a number of original features, such as panelling and exposed beams results in a house of great merit, both architecturally and aesthetically. All in all, this is a wonderful conversion, taking advantage of a special position surrounded by beautiful countryside.
The rural idyll of historic Midelney is in the heart of the Somerset Levels where there is no shortage of heritage, harmoniously blending with today's communities not to mention the outdoor pursuits and wildlife . . . . or the cosy tea shops and arts for those of us preferring the quiet life.
