Bedrooms: 5
A spacious and immaculately presented five bedroom detached house, offering versatile accommodation, ideal for families and those who work from home. Situated in the village of Westhay, this superb property includes ample off-road parking and gardens to both the front and rear. An excellent local pub, a wide variety of rural walks and some spectacular nature reserves are all within close proximity. Viewings by appointment. EPC rating D.

A door to the front of the house opens into a central hall with wooden flooring, which incorporates the staircase to the first floor accommodation with a recess beneath and access into a downstairs WC. To the right of the hall is a good size study with a double glazed window (continued throughout) to the front. Formerly the garage, the study then opens into an adjoining double bedroom, which is dual-aspect and perfect for guests or perhaps older children seeking their own designated space. This section of the property also lends itself well to those who are working from home, providing plenty of space. Across the hall, the sitting room has wood flooring, a large window to the front, shelved alcoves and an attractive wood burning stove in one corner of the room. A door then opens into the kitchen/breakfast room, which is fitted with a range of matching floor and wall units and looks out across the garden at the rear. Within the kitchen, there is space for a range cooker, with an extractor hood in place above and pretty feature tiling behind. There is also space available for a freestanding dishwasher, an 'American style' fridge/freezer and for a breakfast table and chairs at one end. To the side, there is a large utility room, fitted with further floor and wall units, providing a useful space for coats, boots, pets and laundry. There is plumbing and space for a washing machine and tumble drier, an additional stainless steel sink unit, an external door to the side patio, an extractor fan and a floor-standing boiler for the oil-fired central heating.

A double glazed sliding door from the breakfast area then leads through to a fabulous family/dining room at the rear of the house. This light, airy and spacious reception room is triple-aspect, with double glazed patio doors to the garden plus three Velux skylight windows overhead. There is lots of space available for both soft furnishings and a dining table and chairs, however this lovely room could be utilised in various ways depending on the purchaser's requirements.

On the first floor, there are four bedrooms and a family shower room. The master bedroom is incredibly well-proportioned, with two windows to the front, a walk-in dressing room with fitted storage and a well-appointed en-suite bathroom. The en-suite comprises a panelled bath, a pedestal wash hand basin, a low level WC, a separate corner shower cubicle, a vanity cupboard and a heated towel rail. There are two other generous double bedrooms upstairs and a single, all with fitted storage.

Completing the accommodation is the family shower room, presented with a modern suite with an attractive stained glass borrowed light to the landing. The landing offers access to the loft space.

The village of Westhay is located between the larger and highly sought-after village of Wedmore and the desirable town of Glastonbury. Westhay has a farm shop and a superb local pub, The Bird, which has recently re-opened following a refurbishment and serves good food. There are plenty of lovely footpaths for walking, as well as the nearby nature reserves of Shapwick Moor, Ham Wall and Shapwick Heath, which have been designated as sites of special scientific interest and are well known locations for the mesmerising starling murmurations. The village is well placed for access into the city of Wells and also the town of Street, in addition to the M5 motorway further to the west. The adjoining village of Meare has a good community with a village hall and an 'Outstanding' Ofsted-rated primary school. The parish Church of St Mary in Meare, formerly in the keeping of Glastonbury Abbey, dates from 1323 and is a Grade I listed building. Nearby Wedmore features an enviable range of village amenities, including three pubs, cafés, a convenience store, doctors and dentist surgeries and a pharmacy.

A gated driveway to the front of the property provides off-road parking for numerous vehicles. For those with an electric car, there is an EV charging point already in place at the side of the house. There is a section of garden at the front, which includes two areas of lawn with mature shrubs and trees and a log store, all enclosed by a hedged boundary.

A gravel path leads to a shed with electric and light. Gated access then leads through to the side of the property, which offers an area of patio for seating, an outside tap, security lighting and the door noted above, into the utility room.

The rear garden is enclosed by hedging and fencing, and is predominantly laid to lawn with raised vegetable plots and planters. This delightful garden also incorporates a variety of established shrubs, patio and pergola seating areas, further outside lighting, a garden shed and greenhouse.
