EPC rating D.

Tudor house occupies an enviable elevated plot with an exceptional southerly rear view over rolling countryside. The gardens and grounds extend in all, to 0.47 of an acre, including a spacious frontage with double garage and the one bedroom annexe, which has provided an income in more recent times averaging a return of £670pcm (with further potential for holiday letting or elderly relatives needing multi-generational living). The property was designed and built for the owner's occupation some 20 years ago and is a much loved and cherished home. The accommodation is well arranged, with a spacious reception/boot room which leads through to the main inner hallway with tiled floor and a feature stone wall. Set off the hall is a boiler cupboard and a large cloakroom complete with useful fitted store cupboards. The property offers an easy to live in, traditional family layout with a large principal reception room complete with bay window and fitted fireplace. A dining room sits alongside, again enjoying a lovely aspect over the terrace and the garden. The family-size kitchen/dining room has a glorious conservatory off, and completes the ground floor. The kitchen has been fully updated to a smart modern standard in the last few years with a range of integrated appliances and a generous size central island. On the first floor the Master bedroom sits at the end of the spacious landing, enjoying wonderful south facing views over the garden and countryside via a bay window, a large dressing area and ensuite shower room. The remaining 3 bedrooms are spacious double rooms and the first floor is completed with a family bathroom. The Annexe offers an entrance lobby, modern kitchen area with a shower room, sitting area and a bedroom, with a comprehensive range of fitted wardrobes.

Litton is an attractive small village benefitting from an excellent pub and church along with miles of excellent walking and the River Chew running roadside on some of the homes along the main village road offering a very pretty feel, these head from the nature reserve set around the Litton reservoirs, The sought after village of Chewton Mendip lies a short distance away in a convenient position north of Wells and therefore very commutable to both Bristol and Bath. The village has a primary school with an enviable reputation as well as a good community spirit. Further facilities include a pre-school, village shop, village hall, church and public house. The village is situated within the Mendip Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Wells is a short drive to the south where there are excellent secondary educational establishments, namely Wells Cathedral School and The Blue School. National communications are available via the mainline railway station at Castle Cary, Bristol & Bath with direct links to London, all approximately a 30 minutes' drive.

Approached at the front from the village lane, initially over a shared drive section, you then pass into a private parking and turning area, set in front of the garage and the Annexe, with a useful further parking store area completing the frontage. The property also owns the parking to the front of the garages as indicated on our plan within the particulars. Access is available around to the rear where a large terrace area is on offer, which extends across and around, offering a wonderful south-facing space for entertaining and al-fresco dining. The lawns then slope down and away from the house opening up at the bottom to give a large level area, complete with a generous size block built garden store. This area borders onto a copse land and a stream which gives an attractive setting to form the rear boundary. The gardens and grounds in all extend to 0.468 of an acre.
