Set in an elevated position this detached family home with 6 bedrooms enjoys a southerly aspect with a detached outbuilding providing a self-contained annexe (scope to develop further). Also of note is the well established, south facing garden. A lovely spot in this sought after village.
On the ground floor there is a living room with two sets of french doors onto the south-facing terrace, a slate tiled floor and a "Godin" wood-burning stove forming a focal point, a sitting room with understairs cupboard and window overlooking the garden, study or playroom with wood burning stove and fitted bookcases, kitchen diner with a stylish range of base units with granite work surfaces over and an electric "Everhot" range with individually controlled ovens and plates (partially powered by solar panels). The kitchen diner has plenty of space for a large table. At the far end of the property is a utility room and cloakroom.
On the first floor there is a master bedroom with two sets of feature windows and Velux windows above (with blackout blinds) a triple wardrobe, wooden floor, exposed A frames and a vaulted ceiling giving a lovely airy feel. Adjoining this room is a Jack and Jill wet room with a walk-in shower and further built-in storage including an airing cupboard with gas fired boiler. Both the wet room and the family bathroom have electric underfloor heating.There are three further double bedrooms (all with lovely, far reaching views) and two further generous single bedrooms. Finally there is a family bathroom with a shower over the bath and fully tiled walls and floor. On the landing is a useful built-in cupboard used as a wardrobe.
The property is accessed via an area of parking with access to the house and a gate leading into the garden. In the south west corner of the plot is a detached outbuilding which has been used as a self-contained annexe with a kitchen/living/bedroom (5.3m x 4m into the eaves) with velux windows and a covered area leading to a wet room. On a lower level and accessed from Freehill is a garage/workshop/store area (5.6m x 4.1m) which could provide scope to increase the accommodation of the annexe (stpp). There is a gas fired boiler supplying central heating and hot water to the annexe. The annexe has been let in the past to a long term tenant but could equally be a home office or studio.
The gardens are an absolute joy and enjoy a southerly aspect. Although you are set within the village the gardens are incredibly quiet with the only disturbance being the chiming of the church bells! Bounded to the east, north and west by a stone wall and hedge to the southern boundary they enjoy a good degree of privacy and are very sheltered. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a variety of fruit trees, a vegetable garden, greenhouse and shed. Running across the far end of the property is a south-facing terrace with water feature making a super area for outdoor entertaining as well as a number of other locations from which to sit and enjoy the garden.
Westbury-sub-Mendip is set on the southern slopes of the Mendips between the Cathedral city of Wells and the bustling village of Cheddar and is within easy driving distance of Bristol (c.20 miles to the north). The village adjoins countryside which is classed as an area of outstanding natural beauty. A good range of both state and private schools are within easy reach of the village which itself has a primary school, shop and public house.
