About the property:
Ark House is an attractive double fronted stone cottage built in the seventeenth century and Grade II listed with plenty of character features. The property offers off-street parking, a delightful courtyard garden, conservatory, artist's studio and three good sized bedrooms.
About the inside:
The wooden front door opens straight into the generous living room with a stone mullion window to the front, inglenook fireplace and exposed beams. Cottage doors open onto the dining room and the kitchen. The dining room also features a stone mullion window to the front, exposed beams, woodburning stove set into the stone fireplace, and a door into the large kitchen/breakfast room which stretches across the back of the property. This bright and airy room features quarry tiled floors, an electric Everard range, belfast sink and painted wooden shaker style units. Windows look out onto the garden, and skylights flood the room with natural light. A door leads into the useful and spacious utility room which houses the oil boiler.
At the other end of the kitchen, a timber framed conservatory with a quarry tiled floor opens into the pretty courtyard garden, and also into the newly converted studio/office which has double glazed French doors leading out to the private parking area.
Stairs from the kitchen lead up to the first floor. There are two good sized bedrooms with windows overlooking the front, and a large family bathroom with a white suite comprising a panelled bath, low level W.C, bidet, pedestal sink and separate shower. An additional separate W.C can be found next to bedroom 2. Further stairs lead up to the attic room, a generous sized bedroom with exposed beams and windows to the rear. This room leads into bedroom 4 which could be used as a dressing room or office.
About the outside:
A low stone wall with a timber gate encloses the front garden which has a paved pathway to the front door and a variety of mature shrubs offering year round colour.
To the side is a paved private parking space with a door into a storage area, French doors into the studio room, and a gate into the rear courtyard. The stone walled south facing courtyard wraps around two sides of the cottage and is mostly paved with cottage style flowerbeds and mature shrubs and trees creating an attractive and private space to enjoy the sunshine.
About the area:
The property is situated close to the centre of Stoke St Michael which lies between the Georgian City of Bath and the Cathedral City of Wells. This traditional village is surrounded by picturesque countryside and has amenities including a church, primary school, village shop and pub.
