The extensive redecoration and renovation to this character cottage have created a delightful home which has good space and comfort. The quality is evident on viewing with details including tiled floors in certain rooms, oak flooring, doors and skirting boards and well appointed bathrooms and kitchen. It also benefits from electric underfloor heating on both the ground and first floors. Double doors open into a hall with a tiled floor and a cloak room with a basin and wc. Also off the hall is a utility room with fitted units, a Belfast sink and space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer.
Beyond the hall is wonderful 33ft split reception room with oak flooring, a stable door to the side courtyard and a very efficient woodburner which gives a very cosy atmosphere and provides warmth throughout the house. The room is ideal as one large welcoming reception area but can easily be used as two rooms having a beautiful central staircase with oak with glass panels creating a partial division. There is a study and at the other end is the door into the kitchen and open plan dining room with a tiled floor throughout both rooms. The kitchen is extremely well fitted with an extensive range of units, timber worktops, a 2 bowl sink unit, tiling and integrated appliances. These include a Leisure range cooker, dishwasher, microwave and fridge. The dining room has windows along 2 walls and a glazed roof which all combine to flood the cottage with sunlight.
The first floor landing and rooms have vaulted ceilings with exposed beams. The master bedroom is very light and airy with a window and a velux. It has an en suite bathroom with a tiled floor, part tiled walls, a large linen cupboard, hand basin, wc and a double ended bath with central taps. The second bedroom is equally light also having windows and a velux. The shower room has a tiled floor, part tiled walls, hand basin, wc and a shower cubicle.
The desirable village of East Horrington is situated 2 miles outside of the cathedral city of Wells. Wells is the smallest city in England and offers a high proportion of independent shops and boutiques, banks, restaurants, public houses and cinema. The stunning market square holds a farmer's market on Wednesday and Saturday.
There are excellent schools available including West Horrington Primary School (within easy walking distance) which has an ‘outstanding’ Ofsted rating, and the extremely sought-after Wells Blue secondary school. There are several independent schools in the area including Wells Cathedral School and Millfield School.
The property is situated within good commuting distance of the Georgian city of Bath and the regional centre of Bristol, and a twenty minute drive to Castle Cary Station (rail links to London Paddington and Exeter). Bristol International Airport is 18 miles away.
