Full description

A fine period detached house with a range of traditional outbuildings and stood within its own grounds extending to 1.2 acres. 5 bedrooms, 3 receptions, garaging, gardens and paddock. NO ONWARD CHAIN. EPC Rating F.

This 5 bed detached property offers a unique opportunity to acquire a most impressive home with both land and outbuildings. Set in the popular village of Henton and fronted by the river, the accommodation is packed full of character and charm. In brief the property comprises an entrance hall, kitchen, dining room, sitting room, living room, utility and WC to the ground floor, whilst to the first floor there are five bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate wc. Although in need of cosmetic modernisation, the property is brimming with opportunities to create a most beautiful family home. Features include open-fire places, wide staircase, sash windows and a traditional hallway running the entire depth of the property. All the rooms are good sizes and unusually, for a house of this age, the light floods in at every turn. From the rear of the property views stretch over the local countryside, seamlessly merging with the paddock and garden. If the house itself was not enough to whet the appetite then the outbuildings most certainly are. Currently used for storage and parking these traditional stone-built erections are ripe for converting into a plethora of constructions ranging from a studio, holiday cottages or general workshop subject to personal preferences and the usual planning consents. Truly a must see.

The popular village of Henton is conveniently situated between the Cathedral City of Wells and the village of Wedmore. Wells is the smallest cathedral city in England lying in beautiful countryside at the foot of the Mendip Hills - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Wells has local markets twice a week and many medieval buildings including the Cathedral and moated Bishops Palace. There is a busy local shopping centre, cinema, leisure centre, golf course and a broad range of societies and activities. Excellent State & Private schools in the area including Wells Blue School, Wells Cathedral School and Millfield. The major towns of the area are Bristol, Bath, Taunton and Yeovil and are all within commuting distance. Castle Cary is the nearest mainline train station with fast links to London, Paddington. The highly sought-after village of Wedmore offers an enviable range of amenities and facilities to include a range of pubs and restaurants, various boutique shops, bank, chemist, newsagent, fishmonger, dentist and doctors surgeries. The thriving community also has a wide range of clubs.

The property is set in its own plot bordered to the front by a stone wall encompassing the river and lawned front garden. The garden sweeps round the property to the left where a high stone wall can be found with an inset iron gate providing access to the large rear garden which is laid to lawn and a large patio area, perfect for entertaining and alfresco dining. The property also has the luxury of a circa 1 acre paddock which lies directly at the bottom of the garden with access from two areas. There is a separate parking space and barn at the far left of the property giving direct access to the paddock.
