Literally bursting with character and period features, Aria is a property that simply must not be missed. Gently and lovingly renovated by its present owners to ensure that it still maintains all of its perfect period features, for anyone seeking a home of genteel charm whilst still benefiting from modern conveniences, you will not be disappointed. The internal accommodation is both spacious and versatile and from every window there is a pleasant outlook. The main house consists of two principle reception rooms downstairs; a large sitting room with period fireplace; a dining room, which again boasts a period fireplace with inset wood burning stove; and there is also a modern kitchen, cloakroom and a useful under stairs laundry cupboard. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, along with a bathroom fitted with the original Victorian bath and the original Victorian brass taps and a separate WC. Stairs from an inner landing lead up to the converted loft room where there is a further double bedroom, with a dressing room and en suite shower room off. This could equally be used as the master bedroom suite or a private guest suite, as preferred. There is so much more to offer than the internal accommodation though, as Aria has the added bonus of a detached 45' long single story outbuilding which is divided into a utility area, garden store and workshop. The outbuilding runs parallel to the rear garden and is separated from the house by a small courtyard area. Subject to relevant planning permissions this could become a superb conversion, perhaps even a 'granny annex', creating a fabulous space for family or guests to enjoy. The gardens to the property are pleasing, and neither too big nor too small. A long and pleasantly landscaped frontage ensures that the property is set nicely back from the road. High stone walls ensure that the rear garden is pleasingly private and it too is nicely laid out. To the very rear of the garden, a double timber electronic operated sliding gate opens onto a generous concrete hard standing area which will accommodate two cars. Nicely and centrally located, almost within touching distance of the good shopping and leisure facilities that Cheddar has to offer, and within a stone's throw of a superb First School, this delightful family home comes highly recommended!
