££499,950 Guide

4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

DESCRIPTION A well-proportioned detached house pleasantly situated in an elevated position, close to the centre of Stoke St. Michael and within walking distance of the village pub and local shop/Post Office. Presented in good order throughout, this intriguing property is set over two floors and has planning permission already in place to extend over the adjoining double garage.

Steps from the driveway lead up to the property, with a door to the front opening into an L-shaped entrance hall. The majority of the accommodation is found on this level, including three bedrooms, two of which benefiting from built in wardrobes. The family bathroom is fitted with a matching white suite comprising a panelled bath with shower mixer taps, a vanity wash hand basin and a low level WC. In addition, the bathroom has a natural stone tiled floor, half height wall tiling and a frosted window to the front of the property. There is a spacious sitting room with two windows to the rear, two opening into the conservatory and a set of double doors leading through to the kitchen. The conservatory is fully double glazed and is a generous size, providing a superb second reception room with doors to both the front and rear. Fitted with a range of wooden fronted floor and wall units providing plenty of storage, the kitchen includes a sunken Belfast sink unit, granite work surface and an integrated dishwasher. As mentioned above, planning permission was granted in May 2017 (planning ref: 2017/0697/HSE) to extend the property above the existing double garage to create a fabulous size kitchen with skylight windows. The consent also allows for an additional extension to the side of the property (in place of the existing conservatory), which would comprise a utility room and dining room. Further information can be found on the Mendip District Council Planning portal. A door from the entrance hall then leads into an lobby area which has an external door to the rear garden and an inner door to a staircase, which continues down to the Lower Ground Floor. On this level there is a most impressive and particularly comfortable Master bedroom, which has large picture windows and an external door to the front, plus an adjoining shower room. Being self-contained, the Master bedroom is a versatile space and could equally be used as a reception room or to generate an additional income (Airbnb etc.).

The double garage measures approx. 20'2'' x 18' and benefits from light, power and two 'up and over' doors. There are gardens surrounding the property, however are predominantly to the rear and side. As the property is set into the hillside, the rear garden is terraced and is in three sections, manly laid to lawn with gravel steps.

Furthermore, above the double garage there is an enclosed roof terrace with enough room for a large table and chairs; ideal for outdoor entertaining.
