Description

Cedar House is an exceptional property that has been extended and substantially enhanced over the past three years and is now a superb home that is set in a great location within the Mendip Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Presented to a high standard throughout, this impressive house has comfortable and generous accommodation. Large windows and glazed doors combine to flood the house with natural light. These are complimented by double glazed modern aluminium framed windows and underfloor heating on almost all of the ground floor accommodation. Beautiful slate tiles run throughout the ground floor and these gently radiate warmth from the underfloor heating in the cooler months. The bathrooms and cloakroom have all been re-fitted to a high standard. The internal doors are solid wood, some with a half-glazed panel and the external doors are mostly wood stable doors.
