  • Bedrooms: 4
An utterly unique and rare opportunity to acquire this outstanding 4 bedroom home, occupying 4 acres of idyllic and private grounds, with planning permission to extend the main house to 6 bedrooms. Also includes a gym/outbuilding, twin car port and double garage and planning for equestrian use and stabling. Has to be viewed. EPC rating D.

An incredible and highly rare opportunity to acquire the house of a life-time. This four bedroom home, which occupies grounds of circa four acres and has further permissions for extension and equestrian use (should one wish), offers the perfect countryside idyll. In brief the current accommodation comprises an entrance hall, sitting/garden room, kitchen/dining room/living room, utility room, bathroom and two bedrooms (one ensuite) to the ground floor and a further two bedrooms to the first floor. Its current footprint already works wonderfully well for families and those who like to host. It should be noted that although this property is attached, such is the position and aspect, it feel entirely like a detached home. The spacious kitchen/dining/living room is the prefect space for entertaining and opens into the exceptional, oak-framed sitting room/garden room which takes in magnificent views of the surrounding grounds. The entrance hall has been cleverly designed to integrate a useful study area which will appeal to those who need to work from home. All the bedrooms are spacious doubles with the master having the luxury of inbuilt wardrobes and its very own ensuite. There is also a very useful and attractive stone-built outbuilding which is currently utilised as a gym but could easily become ancillary accommodation/holiday let subject to the necessary consents. The current owners have taken great care and attention in presenting this home to the very highest of levels making sure it appeals to as many buyers as possible, which now includes planning permission to extend Field View by circa 1,000 sq ft. The proposed extension would substantially increase the accommodation to make the property into a six bedroom home along with a majestic and stylish open-plan living space which would take in outstanding views over the gardens and land beyond. All the details of this can be found using the reference 2020/1730/HSE on the Mendip Planning Portal. If the current designs are not to a potential buyers taste, there is certainly scope and flexibility to amend and alter this under the correct guidance. Whether you are looking for a forever family home, the option of equestrian use, an opportunity to further stamp you own design on this beautiful home or simply the chance for idyllic countryside living Field View has to be seen.

Field View is in a tucked-away position at the end of a private drive on the northern edge of this sought-after village. Lying some 7 miles to the northeast of Wells, the village offers a post office, good quality public house, primary school and doctor's surgery. The village is well-placed for road links to other towns including the beautiful Georgian City of Bath which is only 14 miles to the north. Bath also boasts a mainline train station with connections to all parts of the country and there is also a mainline station to London Paddington at Castle Cary which is some 10 miles to the south. There are many sporting facilities within the area including various golf clubs and a short distance away is Babington House, a private members club and exclusive hotel which boasts excellent leisure facilities. There are several exceptional schools within the vicinity including Millfield, Downside, Wells Cathedral School to name but a few.

The property is approached via a gated private driveway giving access to off-road parking, double garage, twin carport as well as the gym and main entrance to the property. Field View occupies circa four acres of mainly level ground and is compartmentalised into three defined areas of woodland, paddock and formal gardens, all taking in outstanding views over the local Somerset countryside. The area of woodland forms a V-shape and lies to the North of property. The paddock lends itself perfectly for those looking to keep animals such as sheep or goats but also has planning for equestrian use which would include the erection of new stables and, advantageously, the creation of a new access, which in turn could form a new driveway to the main house. Details of which can be found on Mendip Website using the reference 2020/1051/FUL. If that were not enough to whet the appetite then the expansive, south-west facing, sweeping lawned gardens most definitely will. It not only has the benefit of a sunny aspect, it is also entirely private, offering the perfect setting for children's play, alfresco dining and entertaining in the warmer months. For keen gardeners, it presents a complete blank canvas. Peaceful, picturesque and unspoiled, one would be hard pushed to find a more attractive and charming setting to enjoy life from.
