Scotswood House has been the loved family home for our vendor for over 40 years and in our opinion a real testament to everything it has to offer. In brief the property comprises an entrance hall, WC, sitting room, large conservatory, kitchen, dining room, breakfast room/utility to the ground floor, with three bedrooms and a family bathroom to the first floor. The property is entered through a large and welcoming central hallway, with cloakroom off and stairs to the first floor. The hallway leads to the left into a light sitting room with dual aspect, which in turn leads into the larger than average conservatory, a wonderful room to sit and take in the breath taking views at every turn. To the right of the hallway is the kitchen, with a good range of fitted cupboards and space for a range style cooker and is practically placed between both the dining room and breakfast room/utility, which has access to the integral garage. To the first floor are three bedrooms, two doubles and a single. The master has a wonderful balcony, with uninterrupted and panoramic views over the countryside for miles around. A family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation.

Worth is a small hamlet lying a short distance to the west of Wells in the Wedmore direction. Just down the hill and across the road is the pretty and highly sought-after village of Wookey which is only a few minutes' drive into the centre of Wells. Wookey has three public houses, a primary school and The Wookey Hub (coffee shop). There are good road communications to Cheddar and the A38 beyond which gives access to the M5 Motorway, Bristol Airport and the City of Bristol. Wells is only a few minutes' drive, renowned for its beautiful period architecture with landmarks such as the Cathedral and Bishop's Palace. There are many clubs and societies to get involved with and the city boasts a fine range of shopping, recreational and commercial facilities. The sought after Saxon village of Wedmore is also a relatively short drive to the west.

The house is approached via a sweeping and private driveway, with parking for many vehicles and also leading to useful stables. The immediate garden, which wraps around Scotswood House, is beautifully landscaped with mature shrubs, trees, and rockeries, sloping upwards to a large area of stunning woodland, a real haven for wildlife. To the west of the garden is a ménage, which has in recent times been lawned, however, could easily be turned back into a useable arena. The land is quite simply a delight and gives the property the feeling of complete privacy and exclusivity. The land and woodland in all extends to circa 4.04 acres.

Lot 2 - Available by separate negotiation totalling 3.63 acres

The further lands sits to the south west of Lot 1 and directly flows from the woodland and also adjoins Hembury lane with a separate gated access. The land gently undulates and offers incredible views far reaching in all directions.
