DESCRIPTION Narramore House is a well-appointed four bedroom family residence with land and stables set in a popular village on the outskirts of Wells. The house has been improved and upgraded by the current owner in recent years to create versatile living accommodation with planning permission granted for a two storey two bedroom annex. Set in a private development of two houses with the land and stables backing onto the house and benefiting from countryside views.
Double doors open to the large open entrance hall with downstairs w/c and bespoke wardrobe for shoes and coats. The main living accommodation has been knocked through to create an open plan feel whilst still retaining a natural divide for each room. The kitchen features a range of wall and base units, double oven, built in dishwasher and central island with electric hob, vegetable baskets and power points. Underfloor heating runs beneath the kitchen to the dining room which can comfortably accommodate a table for 8-10 people and benefits from french doors onto the patio and gardens. The triple aspect sitting room has an open fireplace with stone hearth and surround along with french doors to the gardens. A utility room can be accessed from the kitchen which allows for extra storage with wall and base units, sink unit and door leading outside. A separate snug can be found to the front of the house which has a freestanding electric fire and access into the integral garage with electric up and over door. A downstairs office with window overlooking the gardens would be perfect for someone working from home.
To the first floor is a spacious landing area leading to all four double bedrooms and family bathroom. The master suite is a large dual aspect room with a storage cupboard and ensuite with shower, toilet, wash hand basin and heated towel rail. The three further double bedrooms all have beautiful views over the land and gardens with one having an ensuite shower room and another having the benefit of being dual aspect. Two storage cupboards can accessed from the landing area along with the family bathroom which comprises of a bath with shower above, toilet heated towel rail and wash hand basin.
Planning permission was granted for a two storey front extension to the house which would allow the current garage and snug to be amalgamated to large living room. This would give access to an inner hallway with its own separate access outside, a further living room and garage would then be built with the garage accessed from the outside. A new staircase would lead to two double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
OUTSIDE The house sits in a set back and private position within the village, a tarmac driveway leads to a gravelled parking area with ample space. The garage is to the front of the property with a pathway to the front door and side gate to the gardens. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a large patio area accessed by the french doors from the sitting room and dining room. The property is set within a plot size of approximately 4 acres with a track to the side of the house allowing for vehicular access to the paddocks at the rear.
