Mells, Somerset, BA11


4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

Having been in the same family for 40 years, this truly magnificent house represents an exciting and increasingly rare opportunity.
Internally, the house has been tastefully renovated over recent years and is presented in excellent order. A substantial entrance hall (formerly the lounge) welcomes you into the house and features an attractive feature fireplace in addition to exposed beams. A beautiful slate floor runs under foot and is something that continues through the majority of the ground floor. The kitchen/dining room is a naturally light, sociable, open plan space with access to the gardens on two sides. A high-quality range of handmade wooden units are topped with stunning marble worktops. There is a large 'Rangemaster' oven with six burner hob, an integrated dishwasher, a built-in pantry and a freestanding fridge/freezer that is going to be included within the sale. There are views across the gardens and a great entertaining area with a feature fireplace and room for a large table and chairs. The main living room is a wonderful dual aspect space with a wood burning stove taking centre stage, exposed beams and views across the private and beautifully landscaped gardens. Doors lead through on one end to a conservatory that opens onto the gardens, whilst a door the other side of the living room leads through to a second reception room which includes oak flooring, dual aspect windows and doors out to the gardens. Also, on the ground floor there is a study looking over the gardens, a well-proportioned utility room with storage space, plumbing for white goods and access to the back garden and there is also a downstairs w.c.
Upstairs the master bedrooms is a brilliant space, filled with natural light due to the triple aspect windows, enjoying great views from every window and the bedroom benefits from an en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom is also a great size, dual aspect room with exposed apex beams and views over the gardens. Of the two remaining bedrooms, there is one good size double and one small double. The family bathroom is stunning and features both a roll-top bath and a double shower.
Bridge Cottage is approached via a five-bar gated driveway providing comfortable secure parking for up to six vehicles in addition to the triple garage. The triple garage is a detached building with two sets of double doors to the front. The building is complete with light and power and would suit a variety of uses. Should you not need a triple garage or home office or games room, we think that subject to gaining the relevant permissions, it could convert to an Airbnb or self-contained annex depending on requirements.
The gardens are simply breath-taking and measure approximately 3/4 of an acre. With total privacy, large areas of level lawn have been decorated by a variety of mature trees and flower beds with a number of seating areas allowing you to follow the sunshine through the day into the evening.
A unique selling point for this house is approximately 140 metres of Mells brook frontage which we understand is home to the native brown trout and attracts lots of wildlife.
Agent’s Notes
The thatch roof has been entirely re-thatched over the last 2 years.
Cooper and Tanner would also like to inform prospective purchasers that a small strip of land outside of the garden boundary, used as a public footpath, is owned with this property. The ownership of the little bridge over the Mells Brook is owned by the Parish Council.
Mells continues to be one of the most sought-after villages in the area. The village offers a junior school, a public house of excellent reputation and local Post Office/shop. The Country House Hotel of Babington House is just 2 miles, and the market town of Frome is within a short drive.
Private schools are to be found in Wells, Bruton, Bath, Warminster, Cranmore, Beckington, Glastonbury, Street. Railway connections at Frome and Westbury for London Paddington and Warminster and Gillingham for London Waterloo.
