DESCRIPTION Lantern House is a well-presented detached family house, pleasantly located in a peaceful position within the heart of Pilton, famously the home of Glastonbury Festival. The light and airy accommodation is nicely proportioned and includes two reception rooms, study, a spacious kitchen, conservatory and four bedrooms. In addition, there is driveway parking, attached garage and a superb rear garden.
On entering the property there is a traditional hall with staircase to the first floor, cloakroom and doors into the sitting room, study and breakfast room. The sitting room enjoys lots of natural light with large double glazed window (recently fitted throughout the property) and two individual circular borrowed light windows into the adjoining study / play room. The breakfast room offers space for a table and chairs, overlooks the garden and is open to the kitchen. Fitted with a range of matching wooden fronted floor and wall units, the kitchen includes a breakfast bar, range cooker and integrated dishwasher. An internal door from the kitchen then leads into a timber framed conservatory, which is a very good size and includes additional cupboards and double doors out the garden.
On the first floor, there are four bedrooms; three doubles and a single. There is plenty of storage available, with cupboards into the eaves and on the landing. The family bathroom is fitted with a matching white suite comprising bath with mixer taps, low level WC, pedestal wash hand basin and a separate shower.
OUTSIDE At the front of the property there is a driveway with lay-by in front which provides off road parking for two vehicles and leads to the attached garage. The garage is a very good size (25' tandem) with an 'up and over' door, light, power, window and door to the rear plus houses the boiler for the oil central heating. There is also a small area of garden at the front, laid to lawn with mature heading bordering Bread Street, which provides privacy.
One of the main selling points of the property is the fabulous rear garden. Predominantly laid to lawn with established hedge and planted borders, the garden is a very good size and ideal for a family with children or those with an interest in gardening. Included in the garden is a super timber framed summerhouse and at the foot of the garden is an additional area of lawn with an area for vegetable plots.
