4 Bedroom Detached house For Sale

‘Wellsprings’ is a handsome, period, Hamstone, huge four double bedroom detached house (2647 square feet) situated in a superb 'edge-of-village' address near the heart of this highly sought-after Somerset village. This lovely home has generous gardens at the rear of the property benefitting from lovely views at the rear over fields and towards Ham Hill. The level plot and gardens extend to half an acre (0.49 acres approximately). The house is enviably free from the restrictions of grade II listing and yet enjoys a wealth of character features including impressive, elegant ceiling heights, period mouldings, period floor tiles and large, full height bay windows. The property boasts huge potential for loft conversion and further extension at the side and rear and potentially could offer a building plot or scope for further annexe or holiday let at the side or rear, subject to the necessary planning permission. There is a large, attached garage plus driveway parking for 3 to 4 cars. There is space to create vehicular access at the side of the property that could lead to the land at the rear. The house enjoys a good degree of natural light. The deceptively spacious accommodation is expansive and very flexible. It comprises entrance porch, entrance reception hall, sitting room, dining room, conservatory, kitchen/ breakfast room, utility room, rear lobby and ground floor WC. On the first floor, there is a split-level landing area, master bedroom with en-suite shower room and dressing area, three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. On the second floor, there is a partially converted fifth bedroom / loft room plus a large loft void waiting to be converted! It is only a short walk to the centre of the popular village centre of Stoke Sub Hamdon and also the local beauty spot of Ham Hill. Stoke Sub Hamdon offers a broad range of amenities including a number of shops, doctors, hairdressers, beauty and massage therapists and veterinary surgeries, a choice of pubs, a memorial hall, primary school and secondary school. The village is at the foot of Ham Hill Country Park which as well as a network of footpaths, has spectacular views over the south Somerset countryside. There are several National Trust properties close by (including Montacute House), the Jurassic Coast, Glastonbury, Bath, Bristol and Exeter are all within an hour's drive, and within easy reach for daytrips. Transport links are excellent with the A303 trunk road accessible within approximately 1 mile. Train stations in nearby Yeovil and Crewkerne offer regular services to London (Waterloo) and Exeter from Yeovil Junction and Bristol and Bath from Yeovil Penn Mill. This rare and unique property is perfect for those aspiring family buyers looking for the ideal Somerset home, making the most of the ‘work from home’ culture at the moment, wealthy South Eastern buyers with cash looking for somewhere to settle in this exceptional area. It also may appeal to the second home/holiday let/pied-a-terre or buy-to-let market as well. THIS LOVELY HOME MUST BE VIEWED TO BE FULLY APPRECIATED.
