The White House is located in a prominent position on the A39, close to the centre of the village of Williton which has an excellent range of shops, amenities and a first and middle school and is approximately a mile from the coast at Watchet.
The nearest large town is Minehead, West Somerset's premier resort, which is approximately 8 miles away and has a more comprehensive range of shopping and recreational facilities.
The county town of Taunton is approximately 15 miles away and has extensive High Street shopping, excellent schools, rail and motorway connections. Williton is situated amongst some of the most beautiful countryside settings in England including the Quantocks, The Brendons, Exmoor National Park and of course the stunning West Somerset coastline.
There is a station for the West Somerset Steam Railway and within easy driving distance is Dunster, Glastonbury, Wells, Bath, Bristol and Exeter.
The White House is a delightful Grade II Listed Georgian townhouse which was built around 1810 though parts of the property are thought to date back much earlier.
The property was converted to a hotel in the late 1960's and housed a very successful fine dining restaurant for nearly 40 years.
The current owners purchased the property in 2019 and have undertaken an extensive refurbishment programme including a new commercial kitchen, re-decorated of many of the rooms to create what is now a most contemporary and stylish 4 star guest house. There are 14 letting rooms (including two family suites), all of which have en-suite facilities, which are divided between the main house and the converted dairy and stables annexes in the courtyard.
There is a guest dining room seating 18 and a lounge with licensed bar. The owner’s accommodation is substantial and includes 4 bedrooms within a separate annexe which would be ideal for two couples or a large family.
This is a great opportunity to acquire a successful business and family home, run as a bed and breakfast establishment but new owners could easily reinstate the restaurant if required.
The turnover is in the region of £170,000 per annum. Business is generated from commercial and tourism trade including wedding parties from the nearby St Audrey's wedding venue.
The property is set back from the main road with a private forecourt allowing parking for 10 cars, there is an attractive lawned area with mature palm trees to the side.
There is an archway to the side leading to the courtyard where the former dairy, stables (now annexe accommodation) and the old barn are located with further parking for 8 cars. The private garden measures approximately ½ acre, is mainly laid to lawn and it is completely walled but has access from the forecourt.
Mains electricity, gas, metered water and drainage.
