DESCRIPTION Displaying a huge amount of original character and charm, Little Rising has been subject to much improvement and modernisation over the years to create a warm and inviting family home with plenty of scope for further enhancement.

Offering flexible living space the accommodation in brief comprises: Entrance Porch, Entrance Hall, Sitting Room and Snug, spacious open plan Kitchen/Dining Room, Study and Utility Room, split level First Floor Landing, four Bedrooms, Family Bathroom, Separate WC and En-Suite. The property is blessed to have several dual aspect rooms which enjoy superb amounts of natural light and some beautiful features including fireplaces, dado rails and gorgeous bay windows.

Externally the property has mature gardens to three aspects and a pretty courtyard garden to the rear. These include a wonderful well stocked rose garden, a smart formal lawn and a lower more natural grass area bordered by shrubs. An ideal place for a rough game with the dog! The gardens are a delight and a credit to the owners who have cultivated it to display colour and interest all year round.

Outside, the property is approached via a five-bar gated entrance with driveway providing parking for several vehicles which in turn leads to the double garage.

DIRECTIONS Travelling from the Bristol direction on the A38, continue down the hill past the turn off to Cross for about a mile continuing into Lower Weare. Go past the turn off to your left to Stone Allerton and take the next left hand turn signposted to Badgworth. Continue straight on and take the first left hand turn signposted Church Lane. Continue down the lane past the church and the property can be found on your right hand side as you drop down the hill towards the triangle. 

SITUATION Badgworth is a hamlet situated off the A38, near the beautiful medieval town of Axbridge, which is a popular, small residential town situated on the southern lower slopes of the Mendip Hills in Somerset. Further shopping facilities and banks are available in Cheddar and Winscombe, both within convenient driving distance. Bristol and Bath provide a good range of cultural activities and are within driving distance for days or evenings out. The nearest primary school is Weare First School, in Upper Weare. Hugh Sexey is the Middle School, in Blackford and Kings of Wessex is the Senior School, in Cheddar. Independent schools in the area include Sidcot, outside Winscombe, Wells Cathedral School, in Wells and Millfield, in Street. The general area provides good walking and riding country, sailing on Axbridge Reservoir, golf courses and a dry ski slope in Churchill near Winscombe. The nearest access to the M5 is at the Edithmead junction, outside Burnham-on-Sea. The A38 is conveniently close for commuting to Bristol, or branching off to go to Bath on the A368.


WE HAVE NOTICED ... Little Rising is a property of immense charm and appeal and it has clearly been much loved by the present owners for many years. Internally it offers a perfect balance of accommodation to suit a family's needs with space for privacy when required and room for the gathering of the family for special occasions. The mature and private gardens offer several differing areas from which to enjoy the south and west aspects and the plentiful parking and garaging literally giving access straight to the front door.
