Elevated, away from the main road at the end of quiet cul de sac, this delightful property has 3 bedrooms and spacious living accommodation, gorgeous gardens and super views.


Wells 3 miles, Castle Cary 10 miles, Frome 14 miles, Bath 20 miles, Bristol Airport 20 miles. A detached, 3 bedroom bungalow in a very quiet and elevated position, surrounded by private gardens, in the heart of a charming village, with views over rooftops to the church and hills beyond.


The house has an entrance hallway, eat-in kitchen, sitting room/dining room, 3 bedrooms and a family bathroom. Outside there is parking for at least 2 cars, a single garage and a garden which wraps around the whole of the house, a summerhouse, greenhouse, and timber shed.


Situated close to Wells, nestled in the lee of the Mendips, Croscombe is an ancient village, known to date back to at least 706, it developed in the 16th and 17th centuries with the boom in the wool trade. During this period many houses, cottages and inns were built, and the church was reconstructed. Today Croscombe is a popular and vibrant residential area with a very friendly and active community (of about 600) with a Church, excellent primary school and pub. The house is at the end of a very quiet cul-de-sac in an elevated position, well away from the main road and it has fantastic, far-reaching views.


This spacious bungalow offers comfortable an spacious accommodation surrounded by very attractive and private, mature gardens with a greenhouse and terrace at the back. The views are fabulous, and the garage has bags of space.


Steps lead up to a terrace beside the house, a glazed front door opens to an entrance hall with handy boot and coat storage cupboard to the left. Straight ahead is the kitchen with timber units and solid timber worksurface, there is an integrated electric hob, extractor and double eye level ovens and space for a dishwasher and washing machine. The most notable feature of this room is the magnificent view, over the rooftops of Croscombe, to the church spire, with the backdrop of rolling Mendip Hills in the distance.


The bright hallway leads to a bedroom on the right, which could also be used as a snug or study. On the right next to this is a large, triple aspect sitting room/dining room, again with glorious views over rooftops to rolling farmland to the west. An exterior door provides access to the path that leads around the house and the room is surrounded by views of the garden with great privacy. There is an ornate fireplace with a coal effect fire. There are two further bedrooms, one with built-in cupboards, both have lovely views over the rear garden. At the end of the corridor there is an airing cupboard and a large family bathroom with separate shower cubicle.


Outside the garden is accessed either from the kitchen or from the sitting room. It has wonderful views, and it’s mainly laid to lawn with retaining walls, floral beds, mature trees, and shrubs. It is enclosed, sheltered, and very appealing with the variety of plants. There is a summerhouse, and a path wraps around the house to the sheltered courtyard beside the kitchen where there is a greenhouse and timber tool shed, again this area is very private. This paved courtyard is east facing so it will catch the morning sun. The rest of the garden is south and southwest facing. The path continues around the north side of the garage to a garden gate out to the car parking area.


There is a hose at the back of the house within easy reach of the greenhouse and a small picket fence divides that courtyard area off from the rest of the garden, making it perfect for dogs and children. There are electricity points on the southside of the house and exterior lighting. The garage is larger than average with a pedestrian door beside the rear kitchen door. Steps lead down to a very useful space with electric up-and-over door to the front.
