Inglenook Cottage is a delightful period cottage with lots of character and charm. This semi detached property has well balanced accommodation with good sized rooms and is presented in good order throughout. The character is balanced with practical gas central heating and double glazing on all windows and external door.
The cottage has off road parking for one car, a sunny courtyard garden and is set on a quiet lane in the middle of the pretty village of Draycott, which is located conveniently between Wells and Cheddar.
The front door opens into a useful porch with space for coats and boots and benefiting from underfloor heating. From the porch a further door opens into the welcoming kitchen and dining room. This lovely space has recently been refitted with a range of cream ‘shaker’ style cupboards complimented with solid oak work surfaces, one and a half bowl ceramic sink, electric halogen hob and electric oven. There is space for a fridge and a freezer along with plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine. There is also plenty of space for a dining table.
From the kitchen a wooden glazed door opens into the fabulous sitting room. This space oozes character with ceiling beams, a cosy window seat and a rather wonderful inglenook fireplace. This stone built fireplace has a large Bresumer beam over, an inset wood burning stove and useful stone alcoves for log storage etc.
An attractive wooden staircase leads to the landing that has stripped wooden floor boards and a window that gives plenty of natural light. Doors off lead to the bedrooms and bathroom.
There are two good-sized double bedrooms, both with charm and character provided by the stripped wooden floor boards. The rooms are light and airy with windows on two sides of the rooms and painted in a crisp white colour. The main bedroom window has a wonderfully framed view across cottages built from the local honey coloured Dulcote stone to the Mendip Hills beyond. The smaller third room would make a perfect office or perhaps a nursery or dressing room. The bathroom has a white suite having a bath with a shower over, hand basin, wc and with a heated ladder towel rail.
The cottage benefits from plenty of storage, with a large understairs cupboard, a boiler cupboard on the landing with shelving for linen etc and there is a good loft space which has been boarded, above the main bedroom.
There is a parking for one car directly at the front of the property.
The courtyard garden is a delight. Sheltered, sunny and fully paved with areas for seating and dining at all times of the day. An outside tap gives easy access to water for plant watering or car washing.
