This week's property of the week from our exclusive property sponsor Roderick Thomas, is a wonderful family home on Portway.

The home has been extensively improved and these works have included restoring the original parquet flooring, redesigning and refurbishing the kitchen/dining room and bathroom.

The front door opens into a hall with a cupboard, staircase and a cloakroom. The sitting room is very attractive with parquet flooring, a bay window, a pretty fireplace with tiled inserts and a door which leads through into the study.

The heart of the house is the large open plan kitchen and dining room which has Moduleo flooring, is very light and airy having lots of windows and double French doors which all combine to flood the room with sunlight.

The kitchen area has a good range of units, worksurfaces, a Rangemaster gas stove, ventilation hood, integrated microwave and space for a dishwasher and fridge freezer. There's plenty of room for sofas, table and chairs and the French doors lead out onto a garden terrace.

 The adjacent utility room has plumbing and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also a downstairs shower which is ideal for washing boots or pets. Beyond is a side porch.

The staircase leads to the first-floor landing where there are three bedrooms and a bathroom.

All three bedrooms have their original floorboards, two being newly sanded and oiled and one has painted floorboards. The rear bedroom has two fitted wardrobes.

The bathroom has been updated with porcelain tiles, a large walk-in shower, a large bath, basin, vanity unit and wc.

The staircase continues to the second floor and to the fourth bedroom which has an ensuite washroom and spectacular views to the Mendip hills.

The house has an integral garage with a door from the hall. It houses the new Worcester Combi Boiler.

The house stands well back from the roadway behind a wall and a mature hedge with a 5-bar field gate leading onto a large drive area with space for several cars.

At the back of the house, and being approached from the kitchen French doors, is a large, paved terrace which leads down to a well fenced lawned garden with flower and shrub beds and mature trees including magnolia, apple, cherry and plum. There's also a garden shed.

 The home is on the market with Roderick Thomas for £700,000.
