DESCRIPTION A particularly impressive and most attractive three bedroom detached period residence, situated on the eastern outskirts of Shepton Mallet. Once forming part of the Charlton House Estate, Wellspring Cottage is believed to date over 220 years and stand prominently at the foot of Frog Lane, with driveway parking and detached garage. Extended around the turn of the 20th Century and again much later, this well-appointed property provides comfortable living accommodation and retains some delightful character features. Sure to create interest, we recommend all interested parties contact us to arrange a viewing.

The extensive ground floor accommodation has been thoughtfully configured and offers good ceiling height, especially in the original part of the house. On entering the property there is a hall with cloakroom and door into the sitting room. A smartly presented reception room, the sitting room includes wood flooring, stone mullion window, beamed ceiling, exposed stone walls, under-stairs cupboard and a beautiful inglenook fireplace with inset wood burner and painted brick hearth. Leading off one side of the sitting room is a sun room, a 'multi-purpose' room with external access each side and doors into a useful utility room and separate home-office. Steps beside the fireplace then give access into the farmhouse style kitchen, which is fitted with a range of wooden-fronted floor and wall units and flagstone floor. The adjoining dining room provides plenty of space for a large table and chairs and opens into a uPVC double glazed conservatory, a lovely area to sit and overlook the garden.

On the first floor, the second and third bedroom can accommodate a double bed and each have a built in wardrobe and mullion window. The shower room has been more recently updated with a modern suite and incorporates a curved, exposed stone wall. Steps from the landing then lead into a luxury en-suite bathroom to the Master bedroom. With built in cupboards to one side (also housing the combi-boiler for the gas central heating), this quite noteworthy room includes a freestanding roll-top bath, pedestal wash hand basin, low level WC and separate shower cubicle. Double doors then open into the Master bedroom, a newly decorated triple aspect room located at the end of the house. A staircase from the first floor landing then lead to an attic room, which could be used as a play room or for storage. 

OUTSIDE To the front of the property, there is a gravelled driveway providing off-road parking for up to four vehicles and a larger-than-average detached garage/workshop, all enclosed by stone walling. Steps to the left hand side of the property allow a right of access to the aforementioned door opening into the sun room. In addition, there is a path to the side of the garage which leads up and into the garden. One of the main selling points of this property are the gardens, particularly in the late Spring and Summer months. With two main sections, predominantly laid to lawn, the gardens are enclosed to all sides with planted flower-bed borders and some mature trees affording a good amount of privacy.
