Situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, 11 Collett Avenue is a light, spacious, detached five bedroomed property with lovely views overlooking the picturesque grounds of Collett Park, belonging to the “up and coming” market town of Shepton Mallet.
An oak timber porch surrounds the front door which opens into a large entrance hall leading into two reception rooms and a sizeable family kitchen. The impressively spacious sitting room is naturally flood lit due to two large windows and full height patio doors opening out onto a terrace, providing a perfect area for dining alfresco during the summer months. The study overlooks the front of the property and is equipped with telephone and television points. There is a downstairs loo and a substantial utility room with an under-stair cupboard housing the newly installed Worcester Combi boiler. The utility leads outdoors onto the side passage and is, therefore, ideally situated for storing outdoor clothing and includes a useful sink - perfect for cleaning wellies or paws. The hall ultimately leads on into a wonderful kitchen, large enough to accommodate a sizeable dining table and additional seating. Light and bright, with unusually high ceilings, this kitchen is obviously the heart of this home. Light coloured units and a central island, all with quartz stone surfaces, creates a sleek and pleasing interior. Another set of floor to ceiling patio doors, again opening directly onto the terrace and garden, allows for an extensive source of natural light.
The stair case ascends to a generous landing which leads into four excellent double bedrooms and one single. The master bedroom benefits from two windows overlooking the park and a good sized ensuite with shower. The four additional bedrooms also offer leafy views of either the park or the garden and are all remarkably light with plenty of space for wardrobes.
The family bathroom is furnished with a roll top bath, a quadrant shower cubicle, loo and wash basin. To the right of the bathroom a large airing cupboard provides further storage.
The front of the property has a gravelled driveway offering off street parking for three cars. A beautiful and mature magnolia tree stands proudly to the right of the property. The back garden has a terraced area for seating and a large lawn is home to an abundance of shrubs and trees including an apple tree, various berry bushes and herbs. Please note the last picture is of Collett Park.
Potential Building Plot
At the bottom of the larger than average garden there is a double garage and a further plot of land with potential for development. With vehicular access from a lane at the rear and the fact that the plot meets the requirements of the Local Planning Authority means it is highly likely planning would be granted. It is worth noting two other properties have already been successful in obtaining permission.
The current owner has taken professional advice and is in the process of applying for planning permission, which they are happy to pass to the new buyer. With planning being very likely it makes this wonderful large house an extremely appealing proposition.
The market town of Shepton Mallet is fast becoming a destination for new and exciting independent retailers and is also home to the renowned Mulberry Store.
