TRESCO, WESTLEAZE, CHARMINSTER
... to a handsome charmer.
This is a fascinating, utterly versatile house.
With three double bedrooms in the main
house, a two-bedroom, self-contained annexe,
and a swimming pool, the options are endless.
The annexe is perfect for friends and family,
or even as a teenager’s hideaway. You could
also rent it out for extra income.
You can tell, as you pull into the generous
driveway, that this is a house of substance.
Walking in, via the covered porch, this is an
elegant, well-thought-out family home.
There is a lovely, carpeted entrance hall that,
as with all the rooms in this house, is tall and
The stone-floored dining room is splendid,
with doors on two sides that open out to the
garden. This truly impressive oak and glass
extension floods the room with light. A truly

dinner party, and the views of the garden are

Next door, lies the annexe, entered via a
carpeted open-plan dining/living room. French
windows flood the room with light and frame
the garden beautifully.
Doors lead off to the bedrooms – a double and
a single – and a light kitchen with neat, pine
There is also a roomy and well-lit shower
room. Tresco is truly a house of many parts.
The garden is lovely, private and sun-lit, with a
charming terrace; the perfect spot for outside
dining. There is a separate, paved sitting area,
a delightful summerhouse and, in the far
corner, yet another pretty seating area. The
best gardens have lots of ‘rooms’, and this
is awash with them. You’ll never get bored in
this oasis, that’s for sure.
As well a long driveway, there is a double
garage, two store rooms, a useful shower room
and the pump room for the swimming pool.
