Full description

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! An exceptionally well situated and most spacious individually designed and purpose built modern farmhouse in large gardens.

Occupying a semi rural village edge position this is an exceptional opportunity to purchase a really substantial family home in a gorgeous spot with amazing views south across the Yeo Valley to the Mendips beyond. Oak Tree House is set in large gardens which include ample parking and garaging.

Oak Tree House itself is so ideal for a family; all the principle rooms are on the southern side of the building, all benefitting from the fabulous outlook. There is a huge lounge, separate dining room and study plus a spacious kitchen/breakfast/living room, a good sized utility and two downstairs cloakrooms.

Upstairs there are four double bedrooms (one of them easily big enough to divide into two) and a recently refitted and luxury bathroom with shower. The property benefits from oil fired central heating, double glazing and cavity wall insulation.

The property would ideally suit a family looking for a substantial home in a great location. In short, opportunities like this are rare, particularly in such a nice spot, so we recommend you consider Oak Tree House without delay.

Our vendor says ... We love the peaceful location, within a few minutes walk to the shops, the sunny southerly aspect makes the house very warm in winter and it's a great home for entertaining!

We have noticed ... This is a really spacious detached house of quality, in a great spot with enviable views.
