Property Description: Guide Price £550,000 - £600,000. This pretty characterful home was originally built around 1750 for the local doctor. There are flagstones and period fireplaces (one with a woodburner), exposed beams and a mix of wooden and stone flooring creating a wonderful feeling of a country home.
The kitchen has bespoke hand made wooden units for plenty of storage, solid wood worktops and a Belfast sink. There are spotlights fitted to the ceiling and a door leading out to the grounds.
The living room has a wood burner installed within the ornate stone fireplace, the exposed brickwork adds to the character of this room. Both this room and the adjacent dining room are well lit from the large double glazed sash windows. The dining room has a feature place (not currently used), stone flooring and ample space for a large dining table.
The entrance hall runs between the two reception rooms and has the staircase leading upstairs and a study area neatly tucked underneath. Upstairs, the landing area has exposed beams, lets in an incredible amount of natural light and gives a real sense of space. There are three good sized bedrooms which are all well decorated and the main double bedroom has built-in storage. There is a stylish family bathroom with a beautiful freestanding roll top bath and a separate shower.
Outside: There is a door from the kitchen that leads into the pretty cottage style garden with its decked area and stone folly which in turns leads you on into the field. The field is approximately 1.5 acres and has double gates leading directly from the road giving easy access should you wish to create some parking (subject to planning) or use for equestrian purposes. There is a pretty stone building that has recently been converted to create a studio room with a terraced area and outdoor seating. The studio has a woodburner and electricity as well as a small cloakroom complete with loo and wash hand basin. This is currently used as a studio plus home gym but has been a fabulous party barn and additional accommodation should this be required. There is wooden loose box stabling for two horses as well as a wooden storage shed for all the additional items. The wooded area to one end of the field is a lovely addition to this fabulous home. There are open views across the countryside and a number of bridleways and footpaths which is ideal for riding and keen walkers.
Location: Dean is a small hamlet with just a handful of dwellings lying to the north of Cranmore on the mail road from Shepton Mallet to Frome on the A361. Most of Dean is reached via a no through road called Dallimore Lane, which leads up from the A361 by a strip of grass known by some of the residents as The Banana, because of its shape. The nearest towns for shopping are Shepton Mallet (4 miles), Frome (8.2 miles) and Wells (9.6 miles). Shepton Mallet is a vibrant and historic market town which has a heritage dating back to Roman times. Many cultural events are held throughout the year including the Lantern Festival, The Snowdrop Festival and the annual Carnival. Whilst Frome is one of the largest towns in Somerset, it retains many of its listed buildings and is known for its community spirit, arts and entertainment as well as sporting activities, including the annual Frome Festival and Frome Museum. It also hosts the ever popular Frome Independent Market attracting a large crowd of 80,000 on a monthly basis. Headline bands have been known to play at the Cheese and Grain on their way to the Glastonbury Festival.
