Full description

A marvellous detached 4 bedroom family home which is located in an advantageous position within a small, friendly community with a countryside outlook, beautiful gardens and double garage. No onward chain. EPC Band D.

The Property - Manley House is a marvellous detached family home which is located in an advantageous position within a small, friendly community with a countryside outlook, giving a sense of being set well away from the hustle and bustle of urban living yet close enough to Yeovil town to benefit from easy proximity to amenities. Internally, the accommodation is light and spacious with beautifully proportioned rooms arranged in a simple yet classical layout, ensuring that the focus of the property is on comfortable and convenient living for the busy modern family whilst retaining elegant surroundings for all types of entertaining. With wonderful views across neighbouring fields to the rear, Manley House sits centrally within a generous, enclosed plot measuring approximately a quarter of an acre, and therefore offers a highly desirable indoor/outdoor lifestyle as well as a charming rural outlook.

The reception rooms are a feature of particular note; arranged around a central entrance hall, the sitting room, dining room and kitchen/breakfast room ensure that a space is available for every occasion as well as providing excellent living accommodation for day-to-day life. With a mullion window to the front aspect and sliding glass doors leading directly to the rear garden, the sitting room is a fantastically light and spacious room which extends the entire width of the property and, with a charming cut stone fireplace into which an electric flame-effect log burner is set, conjures images of relaxing in great comfort at any time of year. The dining room benefits from two mullion windows and a serving hatch to the kitchen, creating an excellent setting for formal dining and everyday family meals alike, whilst the Kitchen/Breakfast Room is a highly sociable space fitted with traditional units beneath a coloured granite work surface and spaces for the usual appliances, including room for a range-style cooker (Rangemaster stove may be available by separate negotiation) beneath a built-in cooker hood. Plenty of space is available for a family breakfast table in the kitchen which, coupled with a lovely outlook over the garden, sets a harmonious scene for casual gatherings of family and friends. Also on the ground floor is a study which is an ideal place for those working from home to achieve a degree of separation, and a cloakroom.

The first floor accommodation comprises 4 double bedrooms arranged around a galleried landing, from which the airing cupboard can be accessed. Each of the bedrooms enjoys built in wardrobe space with bedroom 2 benefitting from an en suite shower room and a vanity unit in bedroom 4. Two bedrooms have the advantage of rear aspect windows which are ideally placed to enjoy the fine countryside views to their best advantage, whilst the front (and in the master bedroom, side) aspect windows in the other bedrooms are stone mullion, creating an attractive touch of character. The family bathroom can also be found on the first floor, which is equipped with a modern white suite comprising bath, WC and wash hand basin with a window to the rear aspect providing natural light and ventilation.

Outside - Manley House sits near the centre of a generous plot which amounts to 0.23 of an acre, much of which is laid out as attractive garden with mature flower and shrub borders. With double iron gates leading from the lane to the driveway, the plot is easily enclosed for dog and child security, and a sweep of lawn to the front provides a degree of separation between the property and the village road, complementing the sense of spacious surroundings experienced within Manley House. Bordered by a tiny stream with open countryside beyond, the rear garden is a pleasure to be in with great potential for further landscaping to suit a variety of needs; this area is currently arranged as a large paved sun terrace abutting the house with wide flower beds dividing this area from the lawn, which has the potential to be enlarged by reducing the width of the border if desired.

Gardens to both sides of the property are a considerable asset to Manley House; to the right, a lawn stretches alongside the driveway and through to the rear garden with a mature apple tree as the centre piece, whilst the garden to the left benefits from a greenhouse, representing an excellent opportunity for keen gardeners to create a vegetable patch or ornamental garden. Parking is well provided for on the driveway with space available for a number of vehicles tandem to the double garage which benefits from twin up-and-over doors as well as pedestrian access from the rear garden.
