An excellent opportunity to acquire a unique and well-proportioned detached property conveniently situated within the sought-after Mendip Village of Shipham. The property benefits from a self-contained GRANNY ANNEXE and will clearly appeal to a wide range of buyers and in particular those seeking a property suitable for dual occupation or a large versatile family home. The property has been subject to some improvement by the present owners including a replacement gas fired boiler and a tastefully re-fitted bathroom suite. Some further cosmetic modernisation would be required to enhance the property even more. In brief this spacious property which is currently arranged with Annexe accommodation includes on the ground floor: Entrance Porch, Entrance Hall, Cloakroom, Utility Room, Lounge, Dining Room, Kitchen, Side Lobby, Sitting Room, Bedroom 4, Secondary Kitchen and Shower Room. On the first floor there is a Landing, 3 further Bedrooms and Bathroom. The property is sited on a generous plot and is approached via an asphalt driveway providing off street parking for 3 vehicles which in turn leads to the double garage with mature gardens to both the front and rear. In our opinion this individual home should be viewed at an early opportunity in order to fully appreciate the space and full potential available. Viewing arrangements are strictly by appointment through Farrons Estate Agents: 01934 842000.


Shipham is a highly sought after village nestled beautifully within the surrounding Somerset countryside, an area of outstanding natural beauty and for those with a keen interest in the outdoors there are a range of activities available including: Horse riding, walking and mountain biking on the Mendip Hills and surrounding countryside, sailing and fishing on the Chew Valley Lakes and Cheddar reservoir and there are a number of excellent golf courses within the district. Nearby is the local Church of St Leonard's, which traces its foundations back to the mid 13th century and other village amenities including: General Store/Butcher, Public House/Hotel, Filling Station and the village Hall, the hub of varied activities. A more comprehensive range of amenities are available in the nearby village of Winscombe including: Doctor, dental and veterinary practices, a range of retail outlets, public house/restaurant and professional practices. A particular draw to the area are the excellent range of schools on offer, these include: Shipham Church of England First School, Winscombe Primary and Fairlands Middle School in Cheddar. Secondary education is available at The Kings of Wessex Academy in Cheddar and Churchill Academy and Sixth Form Centre in Churchill. Private schooling is available at Sidcot near Winscombe and The Cathedral School in Wells.
