DESCRIPTION: "Kimberley" is a 3/4 bedroom chalet style bungalow having been built in 1964 and has remained in the same family until the present day. It is situated in an elevated position at the top of Foxdown Hill, with some fabulous views over Wellington and beyond to the Blackdown, Brendon, Quantock and Mendip Hills. It is set amongst a select group of residential dwellings enjoying a special position yet still within walking distance of Wellington town centre. The property is offered to the market with vacant possession and no onward chain.

The property has been substantially upgraded over the years to include the creation of the first floor accommodation in 1979, along with the erection of the garage, and a further extension in 1993/94 to the front of the property to include the veranda which is certainly a selling feature for the sitting room with lovely views across the front garden. The property itself sits within a walled garden of approximately 1/4 of an acre and provides an ideal opportunity for an incoming purchaser to further personalise the property to their own needs to include the potential for a further extension, subject to the necessary planning consents.

The accommodation itself comprises, in brief, covered porch into entrance hallway with doors leading to the principal rooms and turning staircase rising to the first floor with a window to the rear elevation. The sitting room is of an excellent size, having been extended to create two distinct areas, yet with an open plan feel with a large picture window overlooking the pretty front garden and patio doors leading out to the veranda; within the room there is also an open fire with brick surround and a further window. The kitchen/breakfast room is well equipped with a range of wall and base units with space for kitchen appliances, table and chairs, with a window verlooking the rear garden and doorway leading to the rear porch/utility, which is a useful addition with a range of storage cupboards and access to the outside.

To the ground floor are two double bedrooms, bedroom 2 has good views and is currently being used as a dining room, therefore, offering a purchaser the flexibility to configure the rooms how they wish, which is one of the selling features of this large family home. To the first floor there are two further rooms with ample storage in the eaves, two dorma windows to bedroom 3 and given the elevated position affords some fabulous views across Wellington town to the hills beyond. To compliment the bedrooms there is a useful cloakroom servicing the first floor.

Outside, the property sits on a lovely plot equating to approximately 1/4 of an acre within walled gardens, which are predominantly laid to lawn with various well stocked flower and shrub borders and a number of trees to include fruit trees to the rear garden. Double wrought iron gates at the entrance open on to the driveway which extends alongside the property, with ample parking, and leading to the garage/workshop and adjacent car port with power, lighting and water.

LOCATION: "Kimberley" is located amongst a select group of residential properties, a unique location given its elevated position with dramatic views over Wellington and the Blackdown, Brendon, Quantock and Mendip Hills. It is within easy access of the countryside and therefore the property would appeal to anyone looking for a peaceful retreat, yet with ease of access to Wellington town centre with three supermarkets and other shops, schools including Wellington School, the A38 (by-passing Wellington) which in turn leads to Junction 26 of the M5 motorway just outside the town, with the County Town of Taunton approximately 8 miles distant. Both Taunton and Tiverton Parkway Rail Stations provide good commuter access. Wellington stands in the Vale of Taunton, between the River Tone and the Blackdown Hills, and is steeped in history including the well-known land mark, Wellington Monument.

Turning second left after the Wellesley cinema into Champford Lane and continue along for approximately 1/4 of a mile passing the Cottage Inn public house, turning the next available right into Foxdown Hill. Continue up for approximately 1/4 of a mile, turning the next available right which provides access to a handful of properties where "Kimberley" can be found first on the right.
