DESCRIPTION 'Weare Close' provides an excellent opportunity for the discerning purchaser that 'wants it all'...

This superb detached and extended bungalow, well positioned within the historic village of Cross (with easy access to Axbridge's plethora of activities and amenities) is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty with views to the Mendips to the front, and a mature, good sized south facing garden with pleasing country views to the rear. The property is beautifully presented throughout with the added advantage of a good size garage and driveway providing ample off street parking. The current owners have completed a comprehensive schedule of works to the property and it really must be viewed to be appreciated.

One enters the property via a reception hall which leads to the spacious sitting room (18'10'') with feature fire place and double doors which lead to a spacious (20') and versatile conservatory with access to the raised decked area, superb for Alfresco entertaining. The kitchen / breakfast room (20') has to be seen to be appreciated and incorporates a beautiful solid oak kitchen with area for breakfast table and 'Karndean' flooring. Three good sized bedrooms are served by a modern four piece family bathroom. A spacious separate utility room (which was previously the kitchen) has all facilities one would expect. The garage is a good size (16' x 10') with electric door and additional storage above. Externally this great home is accessed via gated entrance onto driveway which provides off street parking. The property is set back from the road with area laid to lawn and range of plants and shrubs. The south facing rear garden is approximately 80' depth and approximately 60' width. The garden is predominately laid to lawn with elevated decked seating area and patio area. This mature garden has a variety of established plants, shrubs and trees and offers a good level of privacy. Further benefits include double glazing throughout and gas fired central heating.

Our vendor says ... We moved here eight years ago as we wanted to live in a rural setting with local amenities but still be able to access good roads to the local cities and motorway network for work. We have particularly enjoyed the position of the property with the far reaching views to the Mendips to the front and the countryside views to the rear. We have worked hard on the garden and as it is south facing have spent many enjoyable days in it. We will miss the local community and village life as we have been very involved over the years and have made many great friends. We have completed a full renovation and extension of 'Weare Close' and we feel it is now beautifully finished, spacious, low maintenance and we absolutely love our kitchen / breakfast room as it acts as the central focal point of the home and when we have gatherings people always gravitate to it. There are many beautiful walks on our door step and we love the beautiful scenery and particularly enjoy the changing seasons and landscapes around us.

We have noticed ...A super bungalow in a great location. It is has been extended to create excellent accommodation throughout and has been finished to a very high standard with first class presentation; keen cooks will love the kitchen which is perfect for entertaining! A real credit to the owners, and with the proximity to Axbridge and the surrounding countryside, this is sure to be popular - we highly recommend a viewing. 

SITUATION The village of Cross is very popular with residents, hikers, ramblers and people wanting beautiful surroundings and peace and quiet. Ideally situated off the A38, the village is served by two local public houses. It is around 2 miles from Axbridge, 12 miles from Wells and approximately 11 miles from Bristol International Airport. There are local primary schools at Weare and Axbridge. Wedmore golf course is 4 miles away, Webbington Leisure and Spa complex is 1 mile. There is a mobile library that visits the village and also local milk is available on your doorstep. There are excellent health services locally, with the chemist being only 2 miles away and the health centre 1 mile. Full of old world charm, Axbridge's medieval history is evident in some of its oldest buildings such as the church and St Johns Hunting Lodge. The town Square has inns, restaurants and local shops. The town also benefits from a post office and farmers market. There are excellent bridal and cycle paths over the surrounding Mendip Hills and further facilities are available in Cheddar, a few miles away, including the popular Kings of Wessex Community School with a leisure centre and swimming pool.
