Property Summary“Evergreen” in the historic and very desirable village of Croscombe, certainly lives up to its name. The house is approached through double gates with an oak framed car port and clever planting of Yew, Box, Camellias and a splendid evergreen tree as well as a pretty Crabapple. You can imagine yourself taking in the views while tending your garden in this well laid out space.
An oak porch opens into this well planned home with themed oak floors and takes advantage of the fabulous views of this pretty village. The original wall at the front of the house was reputed to be part of the circular wall that once enclosed the village.
The main reception room with a useful study area and views over the garden flows through to a sunny conservatory with doors to the outside. The kitchen is well laid out with tiled floors, a gas Aga and granite worktops. Off to the side of the kitchen is a useful utility room complete with a larder cupboard, downstairs loo and door to the front as well as an additional shower – great for showering the dog after a muddy walk!
There is a further reception room currently used as a dining room with southerly views over the garden and village beyond and benefitting from some fitted storage cupboards and French windows to raised patio area. Bedroom 3 which is downstairs has an ensuite shower room, storage and is positioned at the front of the house.
Stairs from the hallway lead to the spacious first floor landing, the master bedroom with loads of useful built in cupboards and a large ensuite double shower with twin basin and underfloor heating. The second bedroom is a good sized double with free standing bath and useful ensuite loo and basin.
There is ample storage under the eaves, fully boarded out, insulated, lit and with access doors in both the bedrooms and the hallway making sure there is no wasted space.
The main garden is well planned and flowers throughout the year, and where possible planted to provide year long colour and scent, there are a variety of desert and cooking apples and blackberries as well as water feature, terrace areas, a lovely summer house taking in the views as well as a splendid greenhouse - everything a gardener needs.
There is a large wooden tiled shed to the front of the property that has power and could easily be used for a variety of uses including potentially an office.
Croscombe is a pretty village, mentioned in the Domesday Book, with a thriving pub "The George" which acts as the hub of the community with its "Take Away" night as well as doubling as the village stores. The village hall has monthly film nights as well as the Charter Market where villagers sell their local produce, a village orchestra, amateur dramatics society and village school, playground and sports field. There is excellent walking in the area as the village is littered with footpaths.
The city of Wells is approx 3 miles away, and offers all the usual attractions of a market town including banks, doctors surgeries and dentists with supermarkets including Waitrose, Morrisons and Tesco, a cinema and a market every Wednesday and Saturday. The high street is vibrant with a small selection of the usual chain stores plus a variety of independent shops, pubs and restaurants including the award winning "Goodfellows". At the very heart of the city is the medieval Cathedral, Bishops Palace and Vicars' Close (reputed to be the oldest surviving residential street in Europe).
The Wells festivals are increasing in popularity each year with the Literary Festival now over two weeks and attracting big names, the very well attended Food Festival and many regular Arts festivals. With both the Cathedral School and the Cathedral itself there are endless opportunities for musical concerts, plus there are regular shows and comedy nights in the Little Theatre.
Golf Clubs are in Wells and on the Mendips. Sailing and fishing can be found on the Chew Valley and Blagdon Lakes.
Bath and Bristol are within commuting distance and there is a main line railway station with links to London (Paddington) in Castle Cary just a few miles away with trains to London in approximately 90 minutes. Street and Glastonbury are 20 minutes away. Bristol airport is an easy 30 minute drive.
