There are many excellent state and independent schools nearby including Strode College, Crispin, St Dunstans, Wells Blue School, Wells Cathedral School, Millfield and the Bruton schools.
Lime Cottage has attractive stone elevations under a tiled roof with a short path, behind a low stone wall, leading to the front porch. The house was built during the Victorian era and enjoys many character features as well as contemporary elements, carefully incorporated by the current owners.
The entrance hall has pretty encaustic floor tiles and gives access to the ground floor reception rooms.
The sitting room which leads into the family room is generously proportioned and enjoys a dual aspect, allowing the light to flood in. The focal point of the room is an ornate feature fireplace. At the end of the family room French doors open out onto the seating terrace outside giving a lovely outlook of the rear garden.
The kitchen & breakfast room is a fabulous place in which to entertain guests. Within the kitchen area there is a range of wall and base units with a sink, integral dishwasher and gas cooker, all set into wooden worktops and a large pantry cupboard provides further food (and wine) storage.
Patterned floor tiles in the kitchen become beautiful flagstones in the dining area, where there is ample space for a dining table.
Also on the ground floor is a utility room with a sink, plumbing for a washing machine, a rear door and a w/c.
Upstairs a light and airy landing gives access to the four double bedrooms and family bathroom.
The master bedroom has a pretty feature cast iron fireplace with patterned tile hearth and a contemporary en-suite shower room.
All three further bedrooms are double in size, two of which having Victorian feature fireplaces and the rooms at the rear of the house enjoy the view of the rear garden.
