Property Description

Full description



Wow! What a deceptive cottage, just like the Tardis it goes on and on. Located in one of the best catchment areas in the county, the accommodation is very spacious with 4 DOUBLE bedrooms, 2 separate classic cottage reception rooms, one with wood burning stove, generous and inviting family kitchen which comes with integrated dishwasher, washing machine and housing, “every cooks favourite invention”, the Rangemaster cooker.

Upstairs each bedroom has plenty of space for double beds, desks, bed side tables, you name it, and all have built in wardrobes. The WC and bathroom are currently separate but there is scope for a potential purchaser to combine the two to create a fantastic family bathroom. Furthermore, the current vendor has recently updated the rear windows to A rated double glazing, which keeps the sound out, and the warmth in, potentially lowering monthly bills and your carbon footprint. Outside prospective buyers will be delighted with the low maintenance but deceptive rear garden, with pergola, wooden shed, and ample established shrubs and plants. For the quiet and pensive among you, there is a gate that once walked through will bring you to a “secret” garden, overlooking rolling fields and with wonderful views to the Mendips and Crook Peak, perfect for that summer sangria, reading moment! Rose cottage benefits from gas central heating, parking for 3 vehicles, privacy and safety added with a 5 bar gate, gardens and of course those stunning, unspoiled views.

The village of Lower Weare is situated south of the Mendip Hills and in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. Local amenities include a popular first School in Upper Weare, Church, Petrol station with well stocked shop and Public House. The Medieval town of Axbridge, Wedmore (a village dating back to the Iron age), Cheddar and Winscombe are all within a short drive offering a comprehensive range of shopping, social and recreational facilities. Road links are excellent, with the A38 giving access to Bristol and the M5 motorway at either St Georges or Edithmead. Bristol International Airport is within 15 miles. Schooling in the state sector is first class at every level with Weare First School to Hugh Sexeys of Blackford onwards to Kings Of Wessex of Cheddar, whilst in the private sector Sidcot, Wells, Millfield and the Downs School at Wraxall are all within a short drive.

From the offices of M Mansfield Estate Agents, proceed to A38 junction, at the top of the village, and at the traffic lights turn right onto Bridgwater Road (A38). Continue on this road for approximately 1 mile. On entering the village of Lower Weare there is a Public House on the right called The Lamb Inn. The property is located just past The Lamb on the right hand side. For parking please continue on the road and turn right into lane for private parking at the rear of the property.
