About the area
Street is a large village and civil parish in the county of Somerset, having a population of about 11,800 and situated just 2 miles south west of Glastonbury. Most of its history is dominated by that of Glastonbury, and for many years it housed the corporate headquarters and factories of ‘Clarks’ shoes; these days the head office is still there, along with its very popular museum and, the nationally famous Clarks Village – home to over two hundred discounted retail outlets. Street has an excellent variety of restaurants with the choice of cuisines including: Chinese, Indian, Italian, Thai and more. There is a wide range of clubs and societies (cultural and sporting) and excellent state & independent schools in the area including primary schools, Millfield, Glastonbury, Wells Blue School, Wells Cathedral School. Bristol, Bath, Taunton and Yeovil are all within commuting distance.
Further amenities include a doctors surgery, dentists, hairdressers, leisure facilities and a very popular theatre/cinema to name a few. Castle Cary is the nearest train station with fast links to London.
103 West End occupies a fantastic location with the high street, supermarkets, schools and restaurants all within easy reach. It’s in the catchment for the most popular Brookside school which is well within walking distance and Millfield Senior School is not far away either. Commuting is also easy thanks to the A39 to Wells, Bristol and the M5, plus the B3151 which leads down to the A303 to the South; both just a short drive away.
The current owners have taken great care to make sure every alteration to the property has been made for both practical and cosmetic improvement. The first floor has been reconfigured to allow the maximisation of space and to allow easy access up the incredibly useful attic rooms to the second floor. 103 West End is a rare find. Very few properties have the same credentials as are seen here. The provision for ample parking, brand new electrics, the front and rear gardens, flexible open plan living spaces, three first-floor bedrooms plus the flexibility of additional accommodation within the attic rooms; this property ticks almost every box for a family and to top it all off, it is absolutely immaculate. If that wasn’t enough there is potential to further improve the property with the studio at the back of the garage and there’s even a brand new kitchen fitted by Coxley Kitchens. What more could a buyer want!
The property is entered through the front door into the entrance hall which is light and airy and has a view all the way through to the back garden. There is space to hang coats and stow away shoes underneath the stairs.
The sitting room is a well proportioned room with large sliding glass doors out to the rear garden and an open doorway connecting directly through to the dining area. The dining area sits at the southern end of the L-shaped open-plan kitchen and dining room. Wood effect LVT flooring spans the entire room and thanks to the triple aspect the sunlight pours in. The kitchen as mentioned is courtesy of Coxley Kitchens which assures quality, style and practicality. There are Minerva worktops, handless units and integral appliances including an electric cooker and extractor, induction hob plus a dishwasher. There is also space and plumbing for a washing machine. The window above the sink has a lovely view of the front garden and a side door leads directly out to the parking area for food shopping convenience.
On the first floor there are two sizeable double bedrooms and one smaller nursery room. The bedrooms are serviced by the beautifully fitted modern bathroom which enjoys a bath with overhead shower, basin, heated towel rail and vanity unit. Also on the first floor is a study area with two large storage cupboards and a further set of stairs up to the second floor where there are two most useful attic rooms. They could easily be used as hobby rooms, storage or indeed a place to sleep for a teenager. Through the South facing Velux windows, there is a lovely view out towards the countryside too.
A driveway leads into the property and provides room to park several vehicles. In front of the house is a lovely lawned front garden surrounded by well established mixed hedgerows for that added bit of greenery and privacy.
Behind the property is a fabulously sunny south facing rear garden which gives elusions of a mediterranean courtyard. The whitewashed walls and sunny aspect are like something straight out of Greece and are a real pleasure to sit out in. There is excellent privacy here and more than enough room for a big family BBQ. Pretty flower borders surround the main terrace area.
The garage has an up and over door and adjoining the back of it is a studio. This studio would make an ideal work from home space, workshop or indeed teenagers hideout. Perfect for someone if they wanted an extra little project too!
Mains gas, water, drainage and electricity.
