Our property of the week this week is a beautiful four-bedroom detached home in a pretty rural spot just outside Wells, on the market with our exclusive property sponsor, Roderick Thomas for £1,000,000.

The property combines a comfortable single storey house with outbuildings, gardens and land which all create to make a wonderful home and a lifestyle.

You enter the home into the porch which has space for coats and boots, and a door leads directly into the heart of the house which is the open plan kitchen and dining room. The kitchen area is well-equipped with fitted cupboards, and appliances including a Classic 90 Range Cooker, an extractor and a dishwasher. The dining area has plenty of space for the table and chairs.

Off the kitchen are the sitting room and the snug.

The sitting room has a wood burner and a partly vaulted ceiling which together with the double aspect, French doors and a Velux window make this a light and airy room in all seasons.

The adjacent snug, again with a double aspect, has both larder and linen cupboard. It also has a wood burner making this the ideal place for evening and wintertime.

Linked to the entrance hall is a rear hall, again with space for coats and boots and with a cloakroom with basin & loo. Adjacent is a utility room with a sink unit and space and plumbing for a washing machine.

An inner hall leads to the bedroom accommodation which includes 4 bedrooms, a bathroom and an en suite shower room.

The main bedroom is at the far end of the hall and has the en suite shower room. Another bedroom is arranged with a study area and a sleeping shelf. There are 2 further bedrooms and a bathroom.

Outside, the drive enters through timber gates and continues to a parking area flanked by a range of outbuildings. This includes a home office (with electricity and telephone land line) and adjacent is a storeroom giving expansion room if required. It adjoins a large, double and open fronted car port open barn with a 16amp car charger and beyond is a garage and workshop. Close to the office is a timber framed log stack designed to store and season a 2-year supply. Again, close by and within the garden is a studio summerhouse (with electricity and double glazed). Adjoining the house is the boiler house.

 The gardens are delightful and well organised for ease of management. There are raised flower, soft fruit and vegetable beds, stonewalling, a herb garden and a lawned orchard area with apples, pear and cherry with other trees close by. At the rear of the house is a lawned garden and small yard which is enclosed and an ideal dog yard, It includes a "dog and wellie" shower wash. Beyond the orchard is the meadow, of permanent pasture, having its own lane access and being bounded by various trees including a walnut, sweet chestnut, rowan, hazel and a copse of willow.
