The wooden door leads in to the entrance hall with a turning staircase leading to the first floor accommodation. Immediately off the hall is the dining room. Measuring over 14' x 11' this spacious dual aspect room has a sense of the period features with detailed coving to the ceiling and a working fireplace. Off the hall on the opposite side is the study. Another dual aspect room and measuring 10' x 8' this versatile space could easily be used as a family or TV room. At the end of the hall is a door into the kitchen breakfast room. With windows overlooking the patio and rear garden this sunny and light room is spacious enough for a table and chairs measuring just under 16' x 12'. With exposed brickwork, ceiling beams and a tiled floor this is a lovely room which is obviously the hub of this family home. There is a range of hand painted wooden wall and base units with wooden work tops over. An oil fired Aga providing heating and hot water and there is ample space for a free standing fridge freezer and space and plumbing for a dishwasher. Immediately off the kitchen is the sitting room. Again, a spacious and light dual aspect room with attractive period features. Measuring 14' x 12' there is a fireplace with a large wood burner, coving to the ceiling and picture rails. A window overlooks the land to the side and French doors lead out to the patio and gardens at the rear.

The master bedroom is another dual aspect room with period features. Windows overlook the side and rear both taking in stunning views which include Glastonbury Tor and Nyland Hill. Measuring 12' x 12' the master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and a fully tiled fitted shower cubicle. The second and third bedrooms are both doubles at the front of the house and again take in wonderful countryside views. The fourth bedroom is alongside the master at the rear and measured 15' in length with some restricted head height but could easily be another double bedroom or provide the access needed to any planed extension at the side or rear (STPP). The family bathroom has a wood panelled bath with a hand held shower attachment over as well as a separate fully tiled shower cubicle. There is a wash hand basin, a low level WC, wood panelling to dado height, coving to the ceiling and recessed down lighting. Agent Note: Many years ago the current owners applied for planning permission to erect a two storey extension to the side and rear. This planning remains in place, although any reference to planning potential is based on the permission received by the owners in the past and is subject to new owners seeking their own permission if any different.


Gardens surround this charming property with wonderful views in all directions from the land. The front garden is an attractive lawn area with established borders around the property. On one side a wooden gate leads through to the rear patio garden and an iron gate on the other leads through to a vegetable garden, pond and a seating area. This leads to the drive at the side of the house and a second entrance in to the property. From here you also head up to the land at the rear with a field looking up at the quarry. There is also access to the rear patio and formal gardens. French doors from the sitting room also lead out to the patio garden which is a most attractive and sunny seating area. Steps with stone walls either side lead up to a raised lawned area with small outbuildings. This elevated area is surrounded by lovely well established trees, shrubs and plants. A path leads through to a larger lawned area at the rear facing the quarry. Here there is a large wooden built studio. Surrounded by further established trees and mature plants there is a large wildlife pond at the base of the quarry. There is also a productive orchard and land ideal for equestrian use split into two large fields, one leading to the other. The field nearest to the property has its own five bar gate with separate access to the road, a large outbuilding and a water supply. In total the plot is around 8 acres.
