A large and versatile family home tucked away in this convenient location.
This light and bright family house is approached down a private road and accessed through double gates onto a large tarmacked area. Auklands sits in a generous plot of a 1/3 of an acre and faces due south with the benefit of a garage and large workshop. The house has an area that benefits from separate access so could easily be converted for secondary accommodation.
The entrance hall has double doors to a big south facing reception room with double doors out onto the terrace and garden.
There is a large kitchen/breakfast room, second reception room/sitting room, study, two downstairs cloakrooms, dining room with door out to the rear garden.

The house has the benefit of secondary access with doors to garage and out to large workshop that has electricity and heating with double doors to the rear garden. There are 12 solar panels that currently generate approximately £1700 per annum.
Upstairs there is a substantial master bedroom that looks over the garden to the south and an ensuite shower room. There are three large further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Above the garage is another good sized room that could be used as a fabulous games/children’s room or used as a sitting room for secondary accommodation as it has separate access from ground floor so therefore could be used as an annexe.
The gardens are well laid out with lawn and flower beds to the front with its south facing terrace area. To the rear is a further area of garden which is enclosed and has raised vegetable beds and a greenhouse. There are several fruit trees including apple, pear and plum.

The nearby town of Glastonbury is steeped in history going back to the legends of King Arthur. There was a Celtic monastery here in 500AD, which during the next 1000 years evolved into one of England’s wealthiest and influential Abbeys.

It is one of the few towns that has managed to shun many of the main chain stores whilst still providing all the necessary shops, restaurants, cafes, doctors, pharmacies, dentists, a wealth of clubs and sporting facilities and supermarkets.
