DESCRIPTION Set within the heart of Cheddar sits this beautifully renovated six bedroom family home retaining a wealth of original features. Believed to date back to the 1820's the imposing property has now been restored into a large family home with ample off road parking to the rear. On arriving at the house double doors open into a large entrance hall with flag stone flooring, under stair cupboard and through to the rear entrance hall with a large cupboard for shoes and coats along with a downstairs cloakroom. The kitchen has recently been fitted to a high specification comprising a range of wall and base units with soft close doors, a Belfast sink, larder style cupboard, full length fridge and full length freezer, double slide and hide oven with built in microwave and central island with breakfast bar.
