A part glazed pine door leads into the kitchen/breakfast room with an abundance of character including flagstone, window shutters, an inglenook fireplace with a Range Master oven and wall and base units. The spacious dining room, which is open plan to the lounge features an inglenook fireplace, beams and a door leading out to the gardens. Stairs rise from the hallway to the upper ground floor where there is the main family bathroom, three well proportioned bedrooms, two of which face south with breathtaking views and one bedroom benefits from a built-in mezzanine double bed with skylight above, leaving a spacious room beneath and another is currently used as an office.

ROOM 2 The property is approached by a shared driveway giving parking for four cars, double gates and a single pedestrian gate leading into the garden if extra parking is required. A large secluded garden which is arranged over three levels has a natural spring peacefully flowing from the Mendip Hills, forming a mill stream, which meanders through the garden, cascading from one level to the next. Two stone buildings are situated in the garden, one of which has electricity, roof and a first floor with the potential to convert. A further barn, the old mill building situated on the lower level of the garden, now stands derelict but again offers fantastic potential. All of the gardens are south facing with many seating areas to be found to take advantage of the beautiful views. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees, shrubs, paved terraces, walls clad with climbing roses, honeysuckle and Russian vines. At the lower part of the plot are apple, damson and pear trees along with an ornamental pond.
