Property Summary

A well-presented family home in rural Somerset offering gardens with a storage shed, off-road parking, three good-sized bedrooms and easy access to the village pub and post office.

Local transport links include buses and trains connecting to Plymouth, Cardiff, Taunton, Exeter, Bristol, Gloucester and London, the M5 is within easy reach while both Axbridge and Cheddar are within a ten-minute drive.

The house is located in the charming village of Rooksbridge, south of Bristol and Weston-super-Mare and not far from the long sandy beaches of Brean to the west and the Mendip Hills to the east. Local buses run from stops only a few metres from the front door to Bridgwater and Weston-super-Mare while a long-distance Falcon coach also offers connections to Plymouth. The proximity of the M5 also makes travel further afield by car relatively simple with trains from Highbridge and Burnham-on-Sea just under five miles to the south-west connecting with Cardiff, Taunton, Bristol, Gloucester and Exeter as well as London Paddington.

The property is only a short walk from The Wellington Arms as well as the village post office. However, amenities in the market town of Axbridge four miles to the east also include a medical centre, a pharmacy, a selection of pubs and cafes and a Co-op supermarket while a larger Tesco and Sainsbury’s supermarket can be found in Cheddar a couple of miles further on.

Weare Academy First School is under three miles from the property and was rated as a good school by Ofsted in 2011 while secondary education is provided by Kings of Wessex School in Cheddar to which the school bus stops outside the house.

The house is set back a little from the main road through the village and screened by mature trees and hedges to the front as well as timber fence panels adjacent to a path leading to the front door.

An enclosed garden to the rear is laid mostly to lawn but includes a patio, an outside tap, a double-doored, timber storage shed and head-high timber gates offering access to an off-road parking area. Double patio doors also open onto the kitchen/diner.

Secure off street parking with electric gates for two vehicles is also situated to the rear.

The front door opens onto a reception hall, an internal door immediately to the left leading to the downstairs WC, equipped with a hand basin with a double-doored storage cupboard beneath.

A second door ahead leads to the lounge, with stairs rising to the first floor to the left. The room is carpeted and includes ample wall sockets as well as fixtures and fittings for a wall-mounted flat-screen TV.

A second internal door then leads on to the kitchen/diner, which includes plenty of room for a family-sized table and chairs to the left and a kitchen area to the right. Plenty of light floods the room through the patio doors into the back garden as well as a window above the double-bowled stainless steel sink, although illumination after dark is provided by recessed, ceiling-mounted LED spotlights. White, soft-closing base and eye-level wall units are fitted above and below marble-effect laminate worktops while the U-shaped design also includes an oven and four-ring induction hob beneath a concealed extractor, an integrated dishwasher and upright fridge-freezer. A storage cupboard, which could be used as a larder, is also located in the space beneath the stairs.

The stairs to the first floor rise to a landing with internal doors opening onto two double and one singe bedroom as well as the airing cupboard and house bathroom. All the bedrooms are carpeted and include wall-mounted radiators while fixtures and fittings for wall-mounted flat-screen TVs can be found in both the doubles.

The house bathroom is fully-tiled and equipped with a pedestal sink with chrome mixer tap and a WC with dual flush. The panel bath with shower attachment above is also fitted with a hinged glass splashscreen and chrome mixer taps.
