Tenure: Freehold

A fine detached and individually built house with large accommodation, superb views and a very large plot extending to over half an acre. 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, farmhouse style kitchen with an Aga. Large garage and office/workshop. EPC Rating D.

Orchard Spring is a fine example of an individually built detached house standing on a stunning plot that provides some delightful rural aspects over adjoining land and towards the Mendip Hills. Built for the owners by a well-known local developer, the property was completed in roughly 2001, featuring natural stone elevations beneath a tiled roof. The property provides the rare combination of substantial accommodation complimented by large gardens. Much care and attention went into the design which features generous room sizes throughout and takes advantage of the superb outlooks where possible. Of particular note are the sitting room and kitchen with the former featuring an inglenook-style fireplace with wood burner and the latter being very much the hub of the home with the focal point being a 4 oven Aga and the room very much laid out in a farmhouse style. There is plenty of parking as well as a good sized garage and a substantial detached building currently used as a workshop.

The property is to be found off the village road within Rodney Stoke. Rodney Stoke neighbours the villages of Westbury-sub-Mendip and Draycott. Located approximately 3 miles from the busy tourist town of Cheddar, on the southern edge of the Mendip Hills. It is home to the Church of St. Leonard and The Rodney Stoke Inn public house, which is held in very high regard locally. Cheddar Gorge is the largest gorge in the United Kingdom and includes several show caves. Cheddar gave its name to Cheddar cheese and has been a centre for strawberry growing. The village supports a variety of community groups including religious, sporting and cultural organisations. Several of these are based on the site of The Kings of Wessex School, which is the largest educational establishment. The City of Wells is 6 miles from Rodney Stoke, with its wide range of amenities, highly regarded schools and tourist attractions such as Wells Cathedral, Vicars Close and Bishops Palace.
