Alvion House, THEALE, Wedmore, Somerset
Alvion House is an attractive period family home which has been extended and vastly improved over the years by the current owners, whilst retaining the character you would expect of a home built in the late 1800's. This six bedroom detached home is set back from the road in an elevated position in a plot thought to be around two acres. The accommodation includes a large triple aspect kitchen breakfast room with bi-folding doors opening out to the rear garden. There is also a spacious dual aspect sitting room, a dining room, music room and a study. Two staircases lead to the first floor accommodation with a master bedroom and bathroom on one side and a further five bedrooms and two bathrooms on the other. Outside there is a relatively new detached stone built triple garage block with a workshop on the side and a versatile room upstairs. Attractive gardens surround this charming property which also benefits from stunning countryside views at the rear. On one side the garden opens up in to an orchard, currently used as a large vegetable garden with a field on the other.
