DESCRIPTION A very individual and spacious family home in a peaceful and tucked away location within Old Coleford. In need of updating and some renovation, the property offers good sized accommodation with flexible living space that could suit a large family or someone wanting to work from home. There is ample parking and outdoor space, with a sun terrace with outdoor pool, garaging, outbuildings and stables all set in just over three acres. The property also incorporates Grade II listed Viaduct Arches that you drive under to access the property. There is also an underground cellar area that was built to accommodate a nuclear shelter.

THE ACCOMMODATION The front door opens into a good sized entrance hall with stairs to the first floor. The sitting room enjoys a dual aspect with windows to the front and French doors onto the rear courtyard. There is an open fireplace with marble surround. The dining room overlooks front gardens and is a good size. The kitchen and breakfast room are fitted with a range wall and floor cabinets with a built in electric double oven, hob and extractor fan. There is a utility area with plumbing for a washing machine and some cabinets. To the rear of the property is a large study/playroom with access in the floor to the cellar and nuclear shelter.

There are two staircases in the property leading to the first floor, the rear staircase leads onto a landing with access to a double bedroom and a bathroom and, if you incorporated the playroom below there is annexe potential. The remainder of the bedrooms can be accessed from either stair case and the master bedroom benefits from a good sized en-suite bathroom with corner bath and separate shower. The property was built in the 1970's and some updating is now necessary to suit modern family life.

OUTSIDE There is an integral double garage and additional car port and ample parking. The rear courtyard area has steps up onto the pool terrace which is a super sheltered seating area that overlooks the courtyard and rear of the property.

The gardens to the front are mainly laid to lawn with a turning circle and track leading to the outbuildings. There are some timber stables and a metal barn that would be ideal for animals or machinery. The gardens have fruit trees including apple and pear.

A public footpath runs along the driveway, then along the outside of the boundary of the garden and then crosses the land following the pretty stream along the valley.

A second footpath crosses the bank area and joins the other footpath.

The land follows the stream and is flat at this point and then rises steeply back towards the village.

LOCATION This quiet village is located in the heart of Somerset approximately six miles from the market town of Frome and within commuting distance of Bath and Bristol. The village offers two public houses, a post office, Doctors' surgery, a convenience store, a fish & chip shop and there is also a church and chapel. There are plenty of scenic dog walks surrounding the village within easy access of the property and the Miner's Ponds Coarse fishing lake.

Old Coleford is a hilly valley that opens out onto open countryside. The scenery and walking are excellent with the popular village of Mells close by.
