Easton is a small village a couple of miles west of Wells, towards Cheddar. It nestles at the foot of the Mendips within a stone’s throw of Wells and the popular villages of Wookey, Wookey Hole and Westbury-sub-Mendip. It has a friendly community, church, village hall and playing fields. Around the village is a huge network of footpaths which connect through the surrounding countryside including the Strawberry Line a superb footpath/cycle path, formerly a railway line, which extends from Easton north, all the way to Congresbury and south, eventually to Shepton Mallet. It is less than a mile to walk along this to the next-door village, Westbury-sub-Mendip, where there is a pub, village shop, school and further facilities.


This charming house is thought to be one of the oldest cottages in Easton – it appears in the Tudway Estate Map of 1773 as Moor View, later known as Havenmead. It has been extended over the years to provide very comfortable and characterful accommodation. Original features have been exposed such as flagstone floors, beams, stone walls, floorboards and doors and enhanced to create a unique and charming home. The house is surrounded by mature gardens full of wildlife and in addition, there is a garage with inspection pit and plenty of parking.


A part glazed door opens into the kitchen/breakfast room. This dual aspect room is bright and welcoming with fitted units and an oak worksurface. The kitchen has a French farmhouse feel with integrated slimline dishwasher, a Rangemaster cooker with electric hob, space for an under-counter fridge and freezer and bespoke timber shelving. There is plenty of room for a table and chairs. The front window has a window seat and very attractive views, over the front garden, to the south.


Next to the kitchen is a dining room which again has a window with attractive views to the south. The sitting room has an inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. This is a very attractive room with flagstone floors and exposed beans. Plenty of natural light floods in from the south facing window and sunroom next door. This lovely, mainly glazed room embraces the views to the south and French doors open to the front garden and terrace.


A door from the sitting room leads to the boot room which has a hand-built coat hanging space, bench and storage. To the right is an office, which again has a window to the south. Beyond the boot room on the left is a hallway with an exterior door to the rear garden. The hall leads to a utility space which has a window and plenty of room for a washing machine and tumble dryer. The family bathroom is next to this. Upstairs there is a w.c. and 3 bedrooms, one of which has a sink and built-in cupboard. They all enjoy glorious southerly views. There is loft space and part of it is boarded for storage. It is accessed via a dropdown ladder.


The house is approached from the south through a wooden gate up steps. The front garden is made up of gravel terraces, rockeries and a shrubbery. There is a delightful, sheltered spot next to the sunroom which is ideal for a table and chairs. The path leads around the west side of the house where there is a log store and tool shed, it continues around the back of the house and leads out into the rear garden. A paved terrace, close to the rear of the house, is an attractive, elevated seating area and besides this there is a garden room with a fire pit and chimney.
