New Road, Draycott, Cheddar Guide Price £575,000
**Guide Price £575,000** On the market for the first time in 100 years, this delightful three bedroom detached property on the edge of the Mendip Hills currently with 2 acres of land now requires modernising and updating to create a wonderful family home.
Armadale is a stone built detached double fronted period property with three reception rooms, three bedrooms, cellar, sun room, outbuildings and garages, with approximately 2 acres of land divided into three paddocks two of which fall with the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Requiring a programme of modernisation, the property has recently had gas installed to the boundary, ready for the new owner to update the heating system.
About the inside:
The front door opens into a generous hallway, with reception rooms to each side. The two front reception rooms have large bay windows with original decorative coloured glazing, open fireplaces, high ceilings and picture rails. The fitted kitchen offers plenty of cupboards and space for an electric stove. Opposite the kitchen is the dining room with the woodburning stove and back boiler providing heating and hot water for the property. A window looks out onto the fully glazed sun room. Doors from here lead into a workshop and garage on one side, and a utility room with WC on the other.
Upstairs, three good sized bedrooms, one with an additional room that could be used as an office or dressing room, share a bathroom with a separate shower cubicle with access to the large loft. The principal bedroom enjoys french doors onto the covered balcony to the front of the property.
About the outside:
The garage to the left of the property opens into a useful workshop, which in turn opens into the rear sunroom. The garage to the right has driveway parking in front, and doors into additional store rooms. A door also leads into the rear courtyard with access to an outside W.C. The courtyard itself is surrounded by high stone walls with stone steps leading up the the first of three paddocks.
Currently approximately 2 acres of land, previously used for growing strawberries and vegetables, is divided into three paddocks, two of which are within the Mendip Hills area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB). There are water tanks, and possibly pipework from the house, and a small field shelter. The land has stunning views across the countryside and bordered by hedges and low stone walls. Access is shared with neighbouring properties from the road.
