Coach House Stables
Originally forming part of The Auton Dolwells Estate, The Coach House Stables
was converted into a residential dwelling in the 1980`s and is accessed
via a private drive from the lane providing an impressive entrance. The
property is utterly unique and offers lots of character and ‘soul` whilst
offering generous accommodation which has been refurbished to an
excellent standard. The two ‘wings of the house can be utilised as one
family home, multigenerational living or, as the current vendor has
done, used as part residential and part holiday letting, generating a
very healthy income.
The vendor has meticulously refurbished the property whilst retaining
the original character and consciously retained one of the original
Mediterranean style kitchens and attached entertaining room/
conservatory which opens to the charming walled garden. The double
reception rooms (sitting and dining room) are bright and both have
doors to gardens, one features a beautiful inglenook fireplace with
log burner. All the bedrooms are en-suites, two with underfloor heating, and well decorated with refurbished bathrooms.
In addition to the principle house there is also an attached annexe with
large studio room, hall and room plumbed for a bathroom, conversion
to a home office is obvious but with slight alterations it would also
work well as a holiday rental.
