Property SummarySelwood House is a property of ample proportions throughout, built just over 30 years ago designed by well respected Andrew Wootton Architects. With its array of stylish windows and central atrium, this property really has to be viewed to appreciate the fabulous workmanship and thought that has gone into creating such a contemporary and timeless property.
Once inside the front door the house opens into wonderfully light large open-plan hallway with a beautifully bespoke sycamore central stairwell complete with inlays and oak flooring rising to the galleried landing. From the central atrium/hallway you access all downstairs rooms, including the double integral garage.
The drawing room is a magnificent room with three beautiful arched windows overlooking the south east aspect of the garden, and complete with double patio doors leading into the garden. The focal point of the room is the Italian styled fireplace and the wooden flooring finishes off its rather elegant feel. The house flows off from the hallway then into a dining room, with patio doors leading to the garden, a jute/coir carpet and a double glazed window to the contemporary double height garden room with Jura marble flooring and grey painted timbers. The garden room is rather a unique spot to soak up the weather regardless of the season, whilst enjoying a cup of tea or a glass of wine either reading or entertaining. With direct access from the garden room to the kitchen and breakfast room, each of the downstairs living areas benefits from direct access to the garden which wraps itself around this individual, yet beautifully crafted home.
The kitchen has been fitted with an extensive range of bespoke sycamore units providing fabulous storage with Jura Marble worktops, and a feature central island with wine rack. It benefits from the space to have a separate breakfast table, as well as boasting a full range of integrated NEFF appliances, with double oven and hob and across one side of the kitchen area they have designed a built-in desk area with oak top and further storage. From the kitchen you then have direct access to a utility area complete with three port hole windows, a separate sink and further storage, and beyond this a boot room and further cloakroom which can be also be accessed from the back door.
The main downstairs cloakroom with Victorian fittings is entered via an inner lobby fitted with a useful double cloakroom cupboard. To the north side of house you will find an office/snug fitted with jute/coir carpet, which could easily double as a playroom or a music room dependent upon your family circumstances.
The feature sycamore staircase rises to the first floor, with views of the garden room immediately below through a feature window and a second striking arched window to the front of the property and exposed roof trusses, opening onto a huge central galleried area off which there are five double bedrooms, a large laundry/airing cupboard and a family bathroom.
The Master bedroom is approached through a bespoke walk in dressing room area with beautifully crafted wooden units in a classic green, with French doors opening onto a verandah offering south easterly views of the garden. Above the French doors is an interesting “Arts and Crafts” inspired glazed fan-light and vaulted ceiling. Fitted with coir carpets throughout this well designed bedroom suite has two entrances (one from the bedroom and one directly back to the dressing room) to the lovely ensuite bathroom.
The second bedroom also benefits from an ensuite shower room, heated towel rail, triple fitted wardrobe running the length of the room, and is currently set up to provide a separate seating area to give you a feeling of the size of this room and space. There are two further double bedrooms as you move around the galleried landing before you reach the fifth bedroom and family bathroom. The fifth bedroom as with the other two largest bedrooms has triple sycamore built in wardrobes, seating area and verandah overlooking the pond, with views of the church and village beyond as well as Brent Knoll.
The property is approached via a private drive with a five bar gate opening on to a large gravelled driveway suitable for several vehicles and has a pond directly ahead of the entrance. Selwood House sits centrally on the plot, and is surrounded by large established planted borders, a selection of scattered mature trees and predominantly laid to lawn, complete with multiple seating areas to take advantage of the light and the sun all day long and accessed from the drawing room, dining room, garden room and kitchen/breakfast room. The gardens extend to approximately 0.63 acres and its clever planting helps to enhance the properties privacy.
Selwood House is situated in the vibrant village of East Brent opposite the village green, with an excellent village primary school, a public house/restaurant ‘The Knoll Inn’, Doctors and the historic St Mary’s Church. The property sits below Brent Knoll and is situated in the acclaimed Cheddar Valley catchment area including the state schools; Hugh Sexey Middle School in Blackford and the Kings of Wessex School in Cheddar.
