Property SummaryHunter's Lodge is set in an elevated position with commanding views over the moor towards the Mendip Hills.
At the bottom of the shared driveway is an orchard with miniature fruit trees, cherries, plums, figs, pears, eating and cooking apples, blackcurrants, gooseberries and raspberries.
Steps lead up to the front door, which opens into an inner lobby leading to a main entrance hall. This is a spacious home configured as an "upside down house" where stairs lead from the entrance to the higher level where the views are amazing. The sitting room is very spacious and has big double glazed doors over looking the view and leading into a 45 foot long balcony which serves as a wonderful entertaining area. At the far end of the sitting room is the dining area which leads into the garden.
The kitchen has been upgraded in recent years to modern gloss fronted units and has a low level breakfast area and integral appliances. The view from the kitchen sink is very pretty. There are three further bedrooms on this floor in addition to the family bathroom.
The master bedroom is on the ground floor and offers a great deal of luxury, and it has a walk in dressing room and a bathroom with separate bath and shower. A further double bedroom and utility room complete the ground floor.
The rear garden is terraced and abundantly planted with mature shrubs, climbers, trees and provides colour all year round. Dispersed around the garden are a pond, two decking areas and a pergola. The terracing twists and turns so that as you meander around the garden there are seating areas interspersed so that you can pause and take in the views from different angles. The garden wraps around the house and one path leads down to the double garage with ample parking for several cars, whereas the other path leads around the house to a large hobbies room/workshop which could be put to use in a number of different ways as well as being a really useful storage space.
