DESCRIPTION Rose Villa is an attractive two bedroom semi-detached period house set in a very generous size plot within the characterful Mendip village of Doulting, on the outskirts of Shepton Mallet. The accommodation is well-proportioned, enjoys plenty of natural light and is presented to a good standard throughout. The property retains some charming features including flagstone floors, wooden latch doors, stone mullion windows, wood burning stove and exposed stone walling.

On the ground floor, there is a useful study, good size sitting room with large south-facing window and cottage-style kitchen / breakfast room. Fitted with a range of matching base units in a contemporary finish with solid wood work surface, the kitchen is dual aspect and has space for a breakfast table and chairs. There is an sunken Belfast sink unit with mixer taps, plumbing for slim-line dishwasher and integrated electric oven and hob, with extractor over. As previously noted, the kitchen includes flagstone floor and exposed stonework, as well as a delightful former bread oven alcove. Leading off the kitchen is a utility room with plumbing for washing machine and space for fridge-freezer, which in turns gives access to the downstairs cloakroom and out to the rear garden. At the side of the property, there is a glazed lean-to with additional door to outside.

On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, the Master overlooking the garden and second bedroom with pretty feature fireplace. The family bathroom is fitted with a white suite comprising corner bath, WC, pedestal wash hand basin and separate shower cubicle. There is also a large storage cupboard over the stair recess.


OUTSIDE At the front of the property, there is a garage with up and over door and gated pathway to the house. There is an area of garden at the side (behind the garage) mainly laid to stone chippings and incorporates an under-cover wood store and the oil tank for the central heating. A wooden gate then leads through to the wonderful rear garden. Enclosed to all sides by walling and newly added fencing, the garden is predominantly laid to lawn with established borders and being south-facing, enjoys sunshine throughout the day. There is a vehicular access from the A361 directly into the garden, providing the option of off road parking, if desired.

Adjoining the property is a historic wrought-iron well head from St. Aldhelm's Well, a famous local spring which is the source of the River Sheppey. The well-head includes a cast-iron plaque with raised initials W.N.F.M and an additional brass memorial plaque dating from 1976. 

LOCATION The pretty Mendip village of Doulting is steeped in history and is home to a variety of interesting and most attractive period properties, recreation field, 12th Century church and an excellent primary school (St. Aldhelm's C of E). Located on the eastern outskirts of the historic market town of Shepton Mallet (1.5 miles) and close to both the Cathedral City of Wells (8 miles) and the vibrant town of Frome (10 miles). Both the City of Bristol and the picturesque City of Bath, a World Heritage Site, are located just 17 miles away and easily accessible.
