Nestled in open farmland on a quiet lane with The Mendip Hills providing a stunning backdrop. The house is approached over a long sweeping drive behind a large electrically operated solid entrance gate.

The Willows was converted by the present owners for their own occupation in 2019. Much thought and planning has been given to high energy and heating performance and low maintenance, with open plan living accommodation. There are lovely views from all double-glazed windows. There are vaulted ceilings, and solid oak window sills with living edge. The majority of fittings and finishes are bespoke and result in a most attractive contemporary and light interior with a lovely atmosphere.

The open plan kitchen breakfast/sitting/dining room is a striking room with country views to the east and south. The room has integrated appliances including two sets of double ovens, microwave, induction hob, dishwasher, and boiling tap. Bi-fold doors open on to decking with south facing views of the Mendip Hills. The lounge/ dining area has a fireplace fitted with a large log burning stove and solid wood floor. The study/bedroom 4, overlooking the garden, has a secret cupboard designed to hide cables and wires. The utility room off the kitchen is fitted with a dog shower, washing machine, tumble dryer and additional sink with plenty of worktop and cupboard space.

The principal bedroom includes a reading corner with stunning views overlooking farmland, large walk in wardrobe/dressing room and en-suite shower room. French doors opening onto the deck and garden. The en-suite dressing room could easily be reconfigured to be another bedroom. There are two further double bedrooms, and a family bath/shower room with bespoke timber units and electric skylight.


The Willows is approached though a single sliding solid gate and gives access to a long sweeping drive, passing a large expanse of level lawn interspersed with trees and a large turning circle. This area of garden is very private and enclosed with views over farmland to the Mendip Hills. The drive continues past The Willows to a large gravel area, providing parking for a number of vehicles in front of a four-bay open fronted garage. A workshop/storage area adjoins.

The rear garden, is lawned with a wrap-around deck and a stunning open view to the Mendip Hills. There are raised beds planted with shrubs and a barbeque area. A gate leads to an enclosure with an excellent range of open stores.


A wonderful 4/5 bedroom detached cottage, modernised but oozing with character, situated in an attractive and private setting, with views to the Mendip Hills. Has planning permission in place to extend further if desired.

The Withies is situated along a quiet country lane, facing south towards the Mendip Hills. The interior has light rooms and is L shape in design. The accommodation is adaptable and has been sympathetically modernised by the present owners. There is scope to further extend the accommodation on the ground floor, creating a single storey east wing providing sitting room, and two bedrooms each with an en-suite for which planning permission has been granted. Currently the single storey east wing provides a 26' workshop, utility room, 2 x storage rooms/bedrooms and shower room.

Internally there are exposed ceiling joists, wooden and tiled floors, pine doors and an open tread staircase from the study hall, which rises to the first floor.

The dining/sitting room is an excellent room with a fireplace fitted with a log burning stove and looks out over its front entrance and parking area. The kitchen, which is part open plan with the dining/ sitting room, allows light through from south to north. The kitchen is arranged at the rear of the cottage and has a lovely outlook

with open views over the garden to the studio. Off the study is a cloakroom and games room/bedroom 5, which could provide an alternative bedroom. The first floor has two double bedrooms with country views, and a shower room.


The Withies is approached though a timber farm gate and opens onto a generous gravel parking area, in front of a three-bay open garage and an open fronted log store.

The rear garden is principally laid to a large expanse of lawn and has an excellent studio/summer house with sliding glazed patio window, power and light which would make for a perfect work from home office. There is a lovely open view over the surrounding countryside with mature trees.
