Fairview is a wonderful family home with plenty of space, with a self contained annexe on the edge of the sought after village of Wedmore. The house has been sympathetically and extensively remodelled by the current owners over the last few years. The result is a light and family friendly space offering all modern amenities.
Originally built in 1888. Fairview has a large sweeping gravel driveway with ample parking and approximately 3 acres of garden with an established orchard full of cider apples and fruit trees. The traditional cider press has been retained giving the new owner the chance to make their own potent brew of local cider following the Somerset tradition.
This property has retained period features such as flagstone and wooden floors in the older parts of the house and more modern practical ceramic flooring with under floor heating in the addition. There is double glazing throughout the property including sash windows at the front of the property.
You really could just move straight in to this lovely house.
Fairview not only offers 5 double bedrooms but a separate 1 bedroom annexe and an option to convert the downstairs study, utility and shower room into an independent living space. The main house has elegant living and dining rooms, large kitchen/breakfast room with double doors opening to the west/southwest facing patio area and garden. The utility room, shower room with glazed view of the lit well, study and plenty of storage are also on the ground floor. On the first floor there are five excellent double bedrooms with two bathrooms. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and views over the orchard and garden.
The oak framed annexe consist of a split level space open to the eves throughout with the double bedroom mezzanine above the kitchen and shower room. Flooded with light from three large south facing sky lights and doors that open from the lounge to the beautiful patio and orchard. Engineered wooden flooring and under floor heating throughout. The annexe could be incorporated into the main house or kept separate, ideal for Airbnb, au pair or the boomerang generation needing a little space from Mum and Dad. The annexe also has the potential to extend into the wooden barn should you wish to.
Attached to the annexe is a traditional wooden barn, where the functional cider press is situated, offering plenty of storage as well as housing the pump for the ground source heating.
The garden has been well designed, in addition to the apple orchard there is a large well planted wildlife pond. Also a fenced vegetable area for those wanting to grow their own produce and plenty of mature trees as well as a small piece of land across the road formerly used for rearing pigs.
Heating and hot water throughout is provided by a ground source heat pump, this is a very eco-friendly and efficient system. Solar panels completed the move away from traditional fuels and heating methods. The heat pump benefits from the governments Renewable Heat Incentive scheme (RHI) and there are quarterly payments of £343 which runs until April 2022. The PV panels result in a FIT payment of £183 approx per annum.
Fairview is just outside the pretty and vibrant village of Wedmore, which has Saxon roots and a medieval church. The village has three pubs offering excellent food and boutique style accommodation, a delicatessen, various shops, including a newsagent, butcher, chemist and greengrocer/fishmonger.
