At the front of the property there is a oak-framed storm porch under a tiled roof, with door opening into an entrance hall, which incorporates the staircase to the first floor and a storage cupboard beneath. There is a ground floor shower room from the hall which is fully tiled and has a full width shower, a low level WC and a wash basin. To one side of the house is a triple-aspect kitchen/dining room, which is fitted with a range of matching floor and wall units and includes a tiled floor, a Belfast sink with mixer taps, LED under-unit lighting plus an integrated dishwasher, electric double oven and hob with extractor hood over. The kitchen also offers plenty of space for a dining table and chairs and has double glazed patio doors leading out to a rear courtyard. Adjoining the kitchen is a useful utility room which houses the boiler for the oil-fired central heating and includes plumbing for a washing machine and another Belfast sink with mixer taps. Across the hall is a dual-aspect sitting room which has engineered oak flooring, tri-fold doors to the rear courtyard and a central fireplace with inset multi-fuel stove. The ground floor accommodation is served by under floor heating (radiators then heat upstairs).
On the first floor, there is a landing with built-in cupboard and skylight window above the stairs. There are four bedrooms (two doubles and two good size singles), the Master bedroom benefiting from a fully tiled en-suite shower room with window to the side and heated towel rail. Furthermore, there is a fully tiled family bathroom which is fitted with a Jacuzzi-style bath, a wash hand basin, a low level WC and a heated towel rail.
OUTSIDE The property is approached from Farm Road via a lane which runs behind the period properties. From the lane, there is access into a generous driveway at the front of the property which leads to a detached garage. With 'up and over' door, light, power and a personal door to the garden, the garage is an excellent size (see floorplan) and incorporates a home office with window to the garden, ideal for those looking to work from home (Fibre broadband currently connected). The main area of garden is located at the front of the property and faces west, therefore benefiting from plenty of afternoon sunshine. Predominantly laid to lawn with pretty flower beds to one side, fruit trees and a pathway to the front door, the garden also offers ample space for outdoor seating or dining. To the rear of the house, there is a courtyard enclosed by low level walling and fencing - a morning sun trap which leads around to both sides of the property (access to the front available). In addition, the house has solar panels to one section of the roof at the rear which are fully owned and allow to keep running costs low (a small dividend is also paid out each year).
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.
DIRECTIONS From Shepton Mallet, proceed out of town east on the A361 towards Frome, passing Charlton House Hotel up the hill and into the village of Doulting. Turn right into Farm Road and the property can be found after a short distance on the left, set back from the road.
