Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
A particularly spacious and most impressive detached house, set within a plot of 2.16 acres, within the sought-after village of Croscombe. Offering finely proportioned and versatile accommodation, the property includes four bedrooms, two reception rooms and three bathrooms. There is also a fantastic four-bay garage, extensive parking, landscaped gardens, a paddock and fabulous elevated views. EPC rating D.

A door to the front of the property opens into the entrance hall, which has the staircase to the first floor and an inner glazed door to the main hall. Giving access to the majority of the ground floor accommodation, the hall includes a built-in double coats cupboard and door leading down to the garages on the lower level. 

The main sitting room is a wonderfully spacious reception room, with dual-aspect windows, a central wood-burning stove and a tremendous outlook. The adjoining dining room provides plenty of room for a large table and chairs and is perfect for entertaining. Given the size, the dining room could equally be utilised as a further living room or double bedroom, if desired. Across the hall is the kitchen, which is fitted with a range of matching floor and wall units and includes an electric 'Neff' double oven, a 'Bosch' gas hob, space for a freestanding dishwasher and fridge/freezer, and a breakfast bar. The kitchen then opens into a delightful sunroom at the rear of the property, which looks out across the garden, with a double glazed sliding door. Accessed from the sunroom is a useful utility room which has a WC and basin, too.

One of the double bedrooms is located on the ground floor of the property and is very comfortable, with another large double glazed window to the front. This bedroom has its own modern shower room opposite, fitted with a large walk-in double shower, a twin vanity sink unit, a low-level WC, two heated towel rails and wall lighting.  

On the first floor, the landing area has a pull-down hatch to the loft space, a built-in airing cupboard and a separate storage cupboard. There are three generous sized bedrooms upstairs, two with fitted wardrobes and one with an en-suite shower room. 

Completing the accommodation is a further bathroom, which comprises a corner bath with shower mixer taps, a low-level WC, a pedestal wash hand basin and a heated towel rail.


A private driveway from Duncart Lane elevates up to the property, which has an extensive area of off-road parking at the front. The parking area leads to the fabulous four bay garaging, located on the lower ground floor of the property and accessed via two electrically operated 'up and over' doors. One of the main selling points of this superb property, the garaging is split into two large doubles, adjoined via a central opening. Ideal for car enthusiasts, or those seeking comprehensive storage, the garaging has light, power, a water tap, a sink, a workshop area and an inner stone staircase rising to the main hall, which also houses the boiler for the gas-fired central heating. For those seeking additional accommodation or workspace, there is also considerable scope to convert part of the existing garaging (subject to obtaining the necessary consents).

The property occupies a fabulous plot, extending to 2.16 acres. To the front, accessed via steps down from the parking area, is the first section of the garden. Incorporating a small central pond with a pathway, the beautifully kept front garden is laid to lawn with low level walling and a variety of mature shrubs.

In addition to the internal staircase from the garaging, there is a set of metal external steps from the parking area, which lead up to a tiled terrace and the main entrance to the property. This terrace provides a perfect seating area and encompasses the pleasant outlook across the village and the open countryside beyond. Gated access to both sides of the house continues through to the south-facing garden at the rear. Tiered into three areas and thoughtfully landscaped by the current owners, the rear garden provides plenty of outside space for seating and dining and is perfect for green-fingered purchasers. The lower tier is accessed directly from the sun room and laid to stone chippings and patio, with a raised pond/water feature. A wooden gate then leads up to the second tier, which has a large area of lawn, walled and planted borders and a covered seating area. The third tier is the upper section and has been landscaped, incorporating established planting, fruit trees, fruit and vegetable plots, wild areas, a garden shed and side access. In one corner of this section of the garden is a gated entry into the paddock (approx. 1.40 acres), which is suitable for grazing. The grounds back onto open countryside to the south, providing an idyllic outlook and is a haven for wildlife. The property benefits from a series of outside security lighting, an outside tap and three external power sockets.

Croscombe is situated three miles to the east of Wells and is one of the area's most favoured villages. Local facilities include a well-renowned public house which serves good food and also sells day-to-day groceries. In addition, there is an active village hall, a play park/children's recreation field, a C of E primary school and a Grade I Listed church. There is a bus service to both Wells and the neighbouring market town of Shepton Mallet. The major cities of Bath and Bristol are commutable and the nearest mainline train station is to be found to the south at Castle Cary (London Paddington in approx. 1 hour 40 mins). 

Wells is famous for its beautiful architecture, including its cathedral and the Bishop's Palace. England's smallest city, Wells contains many clubs and societies for those wishing to get involved in the thriving local community. There are excellent shopping facilities, a bustling High Street with both independent well-known retailers, as well as various major supermarkets, including Waitrose. Wells also benefits from a busy, twice-weekly produce market in the Market Square.
