DESCRIPTION Mulango House is a substantial, six bedroom family home with the addition of two, one bedroom annexes, also lends itself to be incorporated into one family home giving the option of an eight bedroom, five bathroom home. Offering flexible and spacious accommodation for a variety of uses, perhaps holiday lets or multi generation living. The house is within a sought after village location. close to private schooling at Millfield and the market city of Wells.
The property itself is believed to date back over 500 years being used for many purposes such as The Pilton Inn and Brewery, The Swan Hotel and most recently the village stores.

The house has sections relating to different eras with the Georgian frontage being Grade II Listed. The current owners have done extensive work to all the rooves, electrics, plumbing, kitchen, bathrooms along with many other aspects hidden behind the scenes.

On entering the house is a large entrance hall with an area for shoes and coats, flagstone floors and original wooden paneling dating back to when the property was a hotel. The former shop has now been created into a large dual aspect lounge/dining area with original metal pillars and a 'Typhoo' stained glass window. The dining area currently accommodates a table for fourteen people. From the hallway is a play room with original 1950's fireplace, built in cabinets and shutters for the sash window. A separate snug has a fireplace with an inset wood burner, flagstone floors and a view into the courtyard. The kitchen, again with flagstone floors has a new ceiling and features a range of wooden units, a walk in larder, range cooker and space for a table to seat four people

Stairs rise to the first floor which comprises an open sitting room, with new roof and ceiling, looking out to the courtyard with a window seat. All of the bedrooms are of generous proportions. Bedroom one has an open fireplace with stone surround, beams and floorboards. Bedroom two has a period fireplace, dual aspect along with a window seat whilst bedroom three benefits from a view over the courtyard towards the garden.

The first floor has two bathrooms, the first having a freestanding bath, separate shower and wash hand basin. The second featuring a bath, toilet, wash hand basin and storage cupboard.

The second floor comprises a further three generous double bedrooms, two having a dual aspect and one having an ensuite shower room with wash hand basin and toilet. A door from the ensuite provides access into an extensive loft space for storage. The roof wall has been re-felted and lead replaced.

Both the apartments on the first floor and can be accessed either internally or by external doors, giving the opportunity to be used as either extra accommodation in the house or to be run as separate letting properties.

Apartment one comprises an open plan dual aspect kitchen/dining/living room with units, a free standing cooker, space for a dining table and a sofa area with a 1950's fireplace. Adjoining is a generous double bedroom along with a bathroom with a bath with shower above, toilet and wash hand basin. A staircase from the kitchen area allows access to the courtyard and passage way to come and go externally to the main house.

Apartment two is a large light studio apartment with built in storage, it comprises a kitchen area with freestanding electric oven and an open area for living/sleeping. A hallway leads to the bathroom which has a bath with shower above, adjoining toilet with wash hand basin and access to the outside patio area. Again this apartment can be accessed externally, without going through the house.  

OUTSIDE A central flagstone courtyard makes for a perfect space for outside furniture being accessed from the kitchen area. It gives access to a newly roofed potting shed with light and power along with a side passage which leads to a WC, utility room and, at the far end, a pedestrian door opening onto Totterdown Lane. From the side passage is the bike room, a fantastic room which has a door opening to the lane and could potentially be turned into a further garage area (STPP) with a further work room behind. From the hallway in the main house is an integral garage, a generous single garage with ample space for storage with a workshop and boiler room providing extra space.

The garden is mainly laid to lawn with various fruit trees, shrubs, bushes and flowers with a side gate opening to Westholme Lane. The large garden room has been re-roofed and provides a marvelous space for summer parties with lighting, power and ample space for dining furniture.
