Property SummaryHazelwood House is a spacious and comfortable village house in a wonderful setting backing onto open farmland with stunning panoramic views of the Mendip Hills. Built into a slope, it has a split-level layout with lots of rooms, offering very flexible accommodation. Energy performance is excellent with double glazing and solar power. Having been extended and refurbished in 2010, there is potential for some further updating to make a beautiful modern family home.
The entrance hall leads firstly to a dining room, which could make a great snug or children’s room, a cosy study and a downstairs loo. Then to a large utility room, fitted with cupboards and a sink and a useful rear lobby for coats and boots with a door into the garage.
Stairs from the entrance hall lead down to the lower ground floor – the star attraction. A wonderful open space with a sitting room, large kitchen and garden/dining room. The spacious and airy sitting room, with a contemporary wood burner in the hearth and windows overlooking the lovely garden, opens into the garden/dining room. Wide windows, doors at either end and large skylights let the natural light flood in and showcase the stunning panoramic views. This is a very sociable space, made for family time and entertaining, with lots of room for seating and a large dining table. The generous kitchen area is fitted with traditional style painted cupboards and wood worktops, providing lots of storage and workspace.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes and all enjoying the stunning views. The spacious master bedroom has stairs in one corner leading up to a bathroom. The second floor has a further double bedroom and bathroom and the top floor has two attic rooms with skylights and eaves storage. Each of these two rooms incorporates a raised platform which can be used for occasional extra sleeping accommodation or would make great office space or for teenagers.
The front drive is flanked on one side by a flourishing vegetable garden in raised beds and, on the other, a pretty border with apple, pear and damson trees. There is ample parking for three cars and a double garage with an electric vehicle charging point. At the rear, an expansive lawn, edged with jam-packed herbaceous borders, slopes gently down to the Lower River Axe, and then to open farmland where cattle and sheep graze. A hexagonal greenhouse makes the most of the sunshine, and there is a peaceful spot to sit underneath a cider apple tree and listen to the river rushing over the weir.
Bleadney is a thriving community, joining with Henton and Yarley, with various societies and clubs in a recently rebuilt village hall, an annual cider pressing event and a surplus produce exchange - and only 5 miles from Wells. The ancient city of Wells offers all the usual attractions of a market town with supermarkets including Waitrose, Morrisons, Tesco and Lidl, a cinema, and various restaurants including the award winning ‘Goodfellows’. The high street is vibrant with a small selection of the usual stores plus a variety of independent shops, restaurants and pubs as well as a twice weekly market. At the very heart of the city are the medieval Cathedral, Bishop’s Palace and Vicars’ Close "thought to be the oldest continuously inhabited street in Europe".
Wells is rich in culture; concerts are regularly performed in its cathedral and in the school's new concert hall; there are regular shows and comedy nights in the Little Theatre, there is a cinema with three screens and Strode College offers a further theatre. The Wells festivals are increasing in popularity each year - the Literary Festival is now held over two weeks and attracts big names, the Food Festival is well attended and there are regular Arts festivals.
Bleadney is also close to the very attractive village of Wedmore which has a village store, butcher, newsagent and chemist, gallery and two very good pubs. As well as a great pub the Ring O'Bells in the nearby village of Wookey and the extremely popular Sheppey Inn in Godney just a short drive or cycle away. https://thesheppey.co.uk/
