THE PROPERTY

Rarely do properties become available which offer such a broad array of highly desirable features as Frindles. Not only does this unique home occupy what is arguably one of the finest positions in the locality and a generous plot amounting to more than one third of an acre. Most immediately noticeable upon arrival is the superb, elevated position with fantastic views stretching in a panorama across the Somerset and Dorset countryside. The property itself has been designed with great care to take full advantage of the fabulous vista at every opportunity, resulting in an upside-down layout which works well with the natural landscape of the plot.

 

Stepping through into a welcoming entrance hall, around which the living accommodation is arranged with stairs leading down to the sleeping accommodation at lower ground floor level. Upon entering the sitting room, the advantages of this layout are immediately obvious with a large picture window and glass door opening onto the balcony, providing a perfect viewpoint from the comfort of the house. Connected to both the kitchen and sitting room, the dining room enjoys the same incredible views through dual-aspect windows, offering a fantastic backdrop for entertaining and everyday meals alike. The quality and style with which improvements have been carried out is reflected in the attractive, contemporary kitchen units, amongst which are integrated appliances, with a cloakroom at ground floor level, ample storage and a utility room forming part of the converted former garage. Also in this area of the house is the office which offers a sense of separation, making this an excellent space for those working from home or requiring a place for individual study. On the lower ground floor, there are three generous double bedrooms, each of which enjoys a fabulous outlook across the garden and the views beyond, and the family bathroom. The master bedroom which interlinks with bedroom 2 and benefits from an en suite shower room and a glass door leading out to a paved sun terrace.

OUTSIDE

Frindles enjoys a spacious, well-established plot amounting to more than a third of an acre. Much of this is arranged to the rear where a series of charming sun terraces abut the rear of the house, over looking a large lawn with well stocked borders and mature trees including varieties of apple. Bordered by established beech hedges, the rear garden enjoys a sense of seclusion and privacy with a sunny, south-west facing aspect, making this a wonderful place to relax, dine or entertain out of doors.

 

Another key asset is the detached double garage which can be accessed via twin vehicular doors as well as a pedestrian door to the side. Beneath the garage is a useful workshop, perfect for use as a hobby or DIY space outside the body of the house. With power and light, it is thought that the garage could offer scope for conversion to a self-contained annexe if desired, subject to any necessary consents being achieved. In addition to the garage, Frindles enjoys a spacious parking area to the front with space for a number of vehicles off-road.
