Constructed in the early 2000's using only the finest materials by well-regarded local housebuilders Mendip Homes, it forms part of a select development of four executive family houses. Built of local stone elevations, with beautiful stone mullion windows, the attractive façade of the property emulates all that is great about English rural architecture. Set to the side of the house is a large separate double garage that provides covered parking for two vehicles with further parking by way of a tarmac driveway to the front of the house. Entering the house through an elegant arched door you arrive at a homely reception hallway with stairs rising to the first floor and traditional wooden doors leading to all the principal ground floor rooms. A smart and practical wooden floor features in the hallway and continues into the sitting room. Set to the left of the hallway is the impressive and spacious, bay fronted sitting room, a large family sized room perfect for relaxing in the evening and entertaining guests. A statuesque stone edged fireplace, which has an inset cast iron gas fire and solid oak mantle provides a wonderful focal point to the room. To the rear of the sitting room a door leads into a large conservatory with a ceramic tiled floor that overlooks the rear garden. The windows of the conservatory are conveniently fitted with sun blinds to take the heat out of the mid-day sun. There is also the huge benefit of a second dual aspect south-facing sitting room with French doors that lead out to the rear garden. This light filled room could be utilised as a playroom/music room or even an occasional ground floor bedroom if desired. To the side of the second sitting room is a handy home office/study with a door that links to the conservatory. Completing the ground floor accommodation is the charming kitchen/breakfast room, another impressively proportioned room it features a range of classic Shaker style kitchen units, topped with a contrasting wood worksurface. There is an electric eye level double AEG oven with ceramic hob with an extractor hood over and a feature tiled splashback along with one and a half bowl sink with mixer tap. There is ample space for a centralised dining/breakfast table for informal dining. To the rear of the kitchen is a handy utility room with further fitted cupboards and a second sink with mixer tap. There is also plumbing for a washing machine and space for further appliances. Both the kitchen and utility room have the benefit of a practical terracotta effect tiled floor. Continuing onto the first floor, the staircase rises to a lovely galleried landing area with a hatch that leads to a spacious loft with a pull-down ladder that has excellent future potential, subject to the necessary permissions, to create further rooms. The airing cupboard housing the hot water tank can also be found on the landing area. The five individual bedrooms are all beautifully appointed and enjoy varying aspects to either the front elevation and out towards the Mendip Hills, or to the rear south elevation overlooking the garden. The fabulous master bedroom features a wall of attractive fitted wardrobes, a walk-through dressing area and a super en-suite shower room. The guest suite or second bedroom also benefits from a smart en-suite shower room, built in wardrobes and plenty of space for free standing bedroom furniture, there are two further double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and a large single, which share use of the family bathroom, which has a three-piece white suite and separate shower cubicle. Outside, the property is blessed with a wonderfully private, and surprisingly spacious rear garden which has a superb south facing aspect. The fully enclosed garden features a large level lawn which is bordered by a variety of mature trees such as laurel, fir, olive and shrubs. To the rear of the house is a superb al fresco dining terrace, perfect for garden parties and summer gatherings, a neat pathway leads around to the rear of the garden. To the side of the house there is space for a greenhouse or garden shed and a convenient bin storage area, a footpath continues from the rear to the front of the house eventually leading to a side pedestrian door of the garage. As previously mentioned, there is a double garage, but please note that the garage has been partly converted to provide a dance studio.
