Location

There are 3 Horringtons – East, West & South, being 3 small villages on the lower slopes of the Mendip Hills, a mile or less from the north eastern outskirts of Wells. Greenbank is in the heart of East Horrington – close to the village cricket ground and old church which is now a private house. The house stands well back from a quiet district lane and is approached over its own driveway. The first 30 yards of the driveway from the lane are shared with the adjacent house and the drive then enters the gardens and continues to a parking area.

Description

Greenbank is a substantial house with deceptively spacious accommodation with 3 reception rooms, a large kitchen & breakfast room and 6 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms. There is the added advantage that there is a bedroom suite on the ground floor. The front of the house incorporates a veranda with both French doors and the main entrance. Inside the large south facing windows flood the house with sunshine and throughout it is light and airy. It’s well appointed with floors of solid oak, maple, and tiling, individual bespoke windows and doors. The bathrooms and kitchen are fitted to a good standard. Another noteworthy feature is the extensive storage within the house with numerous built in cupboards and wardrobes.

Accommodation

The accommodation layout works well with a central hall and staircase in the centre of the house. The sitting room is a good size (15’ x 20’) with a double aspect and a fireplace with a wood burning stove. The dining room also has a double aspect and French doors to a sunny side terrace ideal for al fresco dining. The 3rd reception room is a quiet library with fitted bookshelves. On the ground floor and discretely positioned is a bedroom suite with a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes. Its newly-fitted en suite has a walk-in shower, basin, wc and underfloor heating. The kitchen and breakfast room has a limestone tiled floor, extensive fitted cupboards, larder unit, recycling unit, granite worksurfaces, 2 sinks, microwave cupboard, a range cooker with an extractor, dishwasher and fridge. The adjacent utility room has a large pantry and a side door which leads out to through a covered walkway to the garage. On the first floor is a large central landing and 5 bedrooms (4 with fitted wardrobes). The large master bedroom has an en suite bathroom and there’s also the family bathroom.

Outside

Alongside the house is a large double garage and there’s plenty of parking in front of the house together with a lawned garden. The majority of the garden is walled and at the side and back of the house is a lawn, a paved terrace and a well organised kitchen garden behind an ornamental wall – considered ideal as the supports for vines. The kitchen garden includes vegetable beds and a chicken run. There are also 2 sheds, 2 greenhouses, and various trees and shrubs. Beyond the garden are the beautiful rolling Mendip Hills which are accessible with numerous footpaths.
