  • Bedrooms: 3
Hayward House is unique to the area with an unusually pretty façade including panelled timber door with mullion leaded light windows. Listed Grade II being of historical and architectural interest, the property whilst attached to the impressive Charlynch House, enjoys a great deal of privacy.

The ground floor includes a pretty drawing-room, with two windows both with window seats and, in the rear hallway, a secluded study/office area. The timber-beamed living room is spacious, well-lit, and has a large inglenook fireplace. The kitchen is well fitted with a range of shaker-style furniture and a range style cooker; both the lounge and the kitchen enjoy underfloor heating.

On the first floor, there is a spacious principal bedroom with an en suite bathroom, a family shower room, a further spacious double bedroom, and an adjoining decent-sized single bedroom.

While the interior has been refurbished and designed to provide light and spacious reception space, the original exposed timbers and central features remain throughout.

The drive leads into Hayward House and opens out to provide parking for several cars and has a pillared opening into the front of the house where there is a deep terrace, gravelled path and a beautifully stocked herbaceous border with well-chosen plants, roses and has a small paved area at the far end.

The outbuildings include the original coach house which provides a utility / laundry and office and the adjoining former stables provides excellent storage that could be converted to provide a studio or home office. There are further outbuildings including a garden implement store and a potting shed. An opening between the outbuildings leads through to the large expanse of lawn with several fruit trees and could provide space for a kitchen garden.

Hayward House occupies a peaceful and secluded spot atop of Charlynch hill and sits next to its decommissioned church and Charlynch House.

Enjoying glorious far reaching views from the gardens, the property lies just a mile from the village of Spaxton and its village primary school, community shop and ancient church.
