Property Summary2 Field View Cottages is one of a pair of pretty stone cottages in a rural location close to the popular village of Leigh on Mendip. The cottage has been tastefully extended to provide spacious and light family accommodation, making the most of its countryside setting. A substantial outbuilding offers a multitude of options and the plot adjoins a four acre paddock which can be available by separate negotiation.
The cottage has been significantly extended and completely renovated to an extremely high standard, with double glazing, oak latch doors, underfloor heating and a beautiful Neptune kitchen. The day-to-day entrance to the cottage is at the side, opening into a utility room, with lots of storage and a sink, and a downstairs loo. This then leads through to an exceptional kitchen, filled with natural light, with lots of glass, French doors and windows making the most of the lovely views of open countryside. Beautiful Neptune cabinetry in a subtle limestone colour is complemented by black granite tops and a pale ceramic floor. There is lots of room for a large dining table and chairs, as well as a central island, and a snug area to the side with space for comfy sofas to relax while supper is cooking. This follows through to a pretty sitting room with a woodburning stove and lovely views across the front lawn, and then to a study, with the front door and stairs.
Upstairs there are four generous bedrooms and a family bathroom, the master bedroom having an en-suite shower room. All the bedrooms are light and airy, and have lovely rural outlooks.
The property benefits from an extensive outbuilding, comprising a huge double garage, two stables, a tack room, wood store, office and workshop, with stairs up to an upper floor spanning the whole building. This fabulous space offers enormous flexibility and, subject to appropriate planning consents, could provide exceptionally spacious ancillary accommodation or income potential.
A wide gateway to the side opens to a large parking area for several cars. A low stone wall encloses the front garden with a path leading up to the front door, and a pretty lawn wraps around the front and side of the cottage. To the rear, a wide lawn is bordered by a paddock and there is a gravel area with raised vegetable beds, a greenhouse and a dining area outside the kitchen.
The adjoining four acre paddock is available for sale by separate negotiation.
