EPC rating C.

5 Furlong Place was built in 2002 with a very sympathetic and considerate approach, to blend perfectly with the adjoining much older barns and properties. This charming home provides over 2500 sq. ft. of well laid out family living space, characterful touches and well thought out features. Entered via a welcoming reception area, complete with cloakroom and opening straight into a fantastic dining hall with a feature fireplace, slit eye church style windows (found throughout the ground floor) and stairs giving access to the first floor. Double doors then lead into the principal reception room, which offers a beautifully proportioned room, again offering a fireplace and also enjoying a pleasant outlook out into the well planted garden through French doors. The farmhouse style family kitchen has space for a large dining table in the middle, a wonderful Aga to keep it cosy and warm during the winter months. The kitchen is well fitted, complete with a range of integrated appliances. Access is available from here into the large garage, making unloading the shopping on a rainy day a simple task. Set off the kitchen is a useful utility room, with a large pantry cupboard, plus cooking facilities for the summer when the Aga is switched off. The first floor offers a beautiful, bright and attractive landing area which provides interest due to the angled nature of the building. It has generous amounts of fitted storage and splits the first floor accommodation, which the current vendors have enjoyed when family come to stay. The master bedroom is a huge feature of the property, with gable windows extending up to full height, plus generous fitted wardrobes and an ensuite. A study/bedroom 5 and a family bathroom completes this side of the first floor. The other side provides 3 well-proportioned double bedrooms plus a shower room and bedroom 2 has a large walk-in wardrobe cupboard.

The property is to be found in the Saxon town of Axbridge. This popular Somerset town has medieval origins with some beautiful period buildings in the central town square. Local facilities include a post office, general store, primary school with pre-school and church, whilst in nearby Cheddar, there is a Middle School and also Kings of Wessex Academy. The whole area has many tourist attractions including Cheddar Gorge and Axbridge is particularly well placed for quick road access via the A38 to Bristol Airport and the main city beyond. Wells is approximately a 20 minute drive, famous for its beautiful Cathedral and the Bishops Palace and there are also good road communications via the M5 motorway, Junction 22.

Approached off an attractive courtyard setting, 5 Furlong Place offers a double garage for parking. A walkway leads to the front and to a secure undercover area, very useful for storage and overwintering plants. The garden (measurements and layout available on our floorplan) provides an attractive private area to enjoy the north west facing aspect on offer and the evening sun. The garden has been beautifully planted and is well stocked with a variety of seasonal colours. Several seating areas are available to enjoy sun or shade as you wish through the summer months and provide perfect areas for al fresco dining with family or friends. For those looking at the property as a family, the local playing fields are just over to the rear and provide a modern facility for children to enjoy. Footpaths are also readily accessible off the surrounding area, including easy access down to the reservoir, for those who enjoy walking or have a dog to exercise.
