This week's property of the week from our sponsors Roderick Thomas is a truly striking and stylish family home with an excellent contemporary design specification, offering the perfect balance between rural seclusion and village life, but close enough to the city of Wells to provide easy access to local services and amenities.
The commanding views and surrounding gardens have set the tone for the design of this property and as a result the living spaces feel light, spacious and welcoming.
The property is approached from the gravelled driveway by a sweeping pathway leading around to a stunning oak and glazed front entrance.
The hallway has engineered oak flooring, a cloakroom and a beautiful bespoke oak and glass staircase, which leads to the mezzanine gallery area situated above the sitting room.
The kitchen / dining area leads off the main hallway and is an exceptionally inviting space with its vaulted ceiling and stylish contemporary fitted kitchen with Silestone worktops. Appliances include an integrated dishwasher, Neff double oven and induction hob. The large adjoining utility room has a sink and plumbing for a washer and dryer as well as ample additional storage.
The main sitting room is a stunning space with its vaulted ceilings, glazed mezzanine galleried area and bifold doors, perfectly framing the breathtaking views.
The main bedroom enjoys the same beautiful aspect, with its own bifold doors, leading to the patio terrace area outside; there is a luxurious adjoining ensuite shower room with double sink and large shower.
There is a second generous double bedroom with ensuite shower room and views over the side garden/paddock and two further double rooms, served by a family bathroom with separate shower and bath.
A gated driveway to the side of the property has space for several cars and houses an oak-framed car-barn and adjoining garage. The property is oriented away from the lane, overlooking the open countryside to the rear of this former agricultural barn. The pathway to the front entrance curves toward the landscape, leading visitors past a large area of lawned garden and in view of the patio terrace. The grounds continue around to the far side of the property, where a large paddock can be accessed through a side gate and has direct access to Castle Lane.
This stunning home is on the market with Roderick Thomas for £1,100,000.
