THE PROPERTY

Fairfield is a detached bungalow of fantastic quality which offers wonderfully spacious accommodation and enjoys a generous-sized plot located within one of South Somerset's most popular villages. In recent years, the property has been extensively renovated and now benefits from modern insulation and stylish, high quality fittings whilst maintaining the traditional values of spacious, well proportioned rooms arranged in a simple, classical layout, with a sense of separation between living and sleeping accommodation. Under the current ownership, the property has been beautifully maintained and enhanced, including the addition of a wonderful garden room, and is presented to an exceptional standard throughout.

The centrepiece of this property is arguably the kitchen/breakfast room which is a truly sociable place capable of accommodating a crowd. Fitted with attractive, contemporary units, this room enjoys a warm, comfortable atmosphere with plenty of space for a family dining table, reflecting the modern lifestyle in which the kitchen so often forms the heart of the home. Modern convenience is well catered for with plenty of storage available, particularly in the large larder cupboard, and appliances including an American-style fridge/freezer, a range style cooker and an integrated dishwasher and washing machine. In addition to the kitchen, Fairfield is perfectly laid out to provide a fantastic space for every occasion. Three reception areas work effortlessly together to make ideal environments for casual relaxation and formal entertaining alike with a tranquil sitting room and adjoining snug as well as a garden room. A comfortable space in all seasons, the sitting room benefits from a handsome Bath Stone fireplace with inset multifuel burner to create a warming glow during colder months, and is connected by a glass door to the garden room from which double doors lead directly to outside, allowing a highly desirable indoor/outdoor lifestyle when weather permits.

The bedrooms are perfectly arranged to accommodate the needs of a variety of purchasers, including those with growing or indeed grown-up families or those expecting regular guests. With a hallway from the sitting room leading to bedrooms 1 and 4, and two further bedrooms accessed from the entrance hall, the sleeping accommodation enjoys a degree of separation offering a sense of privacy to each respective pair of bedrooms. Furthermore, each pair is served by a bath- or shower room, ensuring that facilities are always within easy reach. The three largest rooms benefit from built in storage as well as dual aspect windows, ensuring a wealth of natural light and an attractive outlook across the rear garden for bedrooms 1 and 2.

OUTSIDE

Fairfield enjoys a generous plot amounting to more than half an acre, much of which is arranged to the rear as an attractive, level garden. Adjoining, but well screened from, the village playing fields, there is a sense of seclusion in the garden, making this a wonderful place to enjoy an outdoor lifestyle. Those with green fingers will appreciate the established flower and shrub beds, mature fruit trees and the collection of raised beds to the side, allowing a touch of the good life if desired, whilst those more inclined to relax or entertain outside will no doubt realise the tranquil atmosphere created by the ornamental pond, complete with water feature and bridge. Maintenance of the smooth, established lawn will be facilitated for an incoming purchaser, as the vendors have indicated that a ride-on lawn mower will be included as part of the sale

 

The property is approached from the public road through double gates which give access to a driveway leading up to a parking and turning area for several cars. From here, the vehicle door of the double garage can be accessed, with a pedestrian door to the side. With power and light, the garage offers secure, covered parking for up to 2 vehicles as well as excellent storage space.
