DESCRIPTION Converted from an old cheese mill, the building itself dates from around 1850 and presents some character features throughout ... including an original safe (still in working order!) which used to house the wage bills for the staff of the mill. The mill closed down and more recently was separated into four apartments. This apartment is located on the ground floor, and stretches five windows wide and boasts nearly 1400 square foot of accommodation ... indeed, bungalow sized!

The situation is superb, in the hamlet of Shrowle with only a little over five properties here and surrounded by open countryside. It is on the edge of the ever popular East Harptree, and within convenient access of Wells, Bath and Bristol.

The accommodation is incredible deceptive, it briefly comprises an entrance hall, utility/cloakroom and spacious kitchen/breakfast room. Steps lead down into a roomy sitting room with woodburner style gas fireplace. Windows to the front elevation all benefit from countryside views.

During their 15 year ownership, the owners have much improved the property, including borrowing some space from the sitting room to create a fourth bedroom. If this is not required, it could be possible to return it back to an even larger sitting room! As aforementioned, there are four bedrooms, the master benefits from a dressing area (with potential for en suite) and there is a sizeable family bathroom.

Outside, a driveway provides off street parking, a pleasant decked area is found to the front and there is a mature and private garden to one side.

WE HAVE NOTICED... A totally deceptive home! From the outside it would never be apparent just how much space this home has to offer... the rooms are generously sized and living spaces the same. The location along a quiet country lane over looking fields is stunning and the property comes highly recommended.

OUR VENDOR SAYS... We have lived here for 15 years and have loved the location here the property is in a quiet spot but not totally isolated which has been great for the family. The space inside is also really great, offering so much more than initially meets the eye. 

SITUATION The Hamlet of Shrowle is found on the outskirts of East Harptree which lies on the edge of the Mendip Hills with views across the Chew Valley and country walks on the doorstep. The Bath & North East Somerset village offers facilities including a village store, public house and restaurant, village hall, primary school (www.eastharptreeschool.ik.org) and childrens’ play area. Secondary education is available at nearby Chew Magna at Chew Valley’s comprehensive school (www.chewvalleyschool.co.uk) which has recently had an outstanding Ofsted report. Bristol, Bath and Wells offer a wider range of shops, recreation facilities as well as private education with Bristol & Bath having good rail and motorway links. The Chew Valley comprises thousands of acres of beautiful countryside with Chew Valley and Blagdon Lakes offering sailing and fishing. The area around is well known for its beauty and offers a variety of community pursuits within a drive. Indeed, riding, walking, fishing, sailing and dry skiing are just some of the activities available within a few miles.  

DIRECTIONS Travelling into East Harptree from West Harptree, proceed through the traffic calming system and turn left at the crossroads, shortly before Harptree Court. Follow this road past the football pitch as it leads into Shrowle. Shrowle Mill can be found shortly on the left hand side, with a Debbie Fortune Estate Agents For Sale board.
