Bedrooms: 4
A charming Grade II listed 4 bedroom period cottage, with a beautiful rear garden and stunning open views. Conveniently located in the heart of a popular village, just minutes from the stunning Cathedral City of Wells.

Sidelands is a grade II listed cottage, believed to date back to the 1700's, located within the highly desirable village of North Wootton. Formerly a working dairy, this beautiful property still retains many of its original features which can be found throughout the three floors. With the ample space on offer and the idyllic garden and views, this property would make a great family home or countryside retreat.

Accessed from the front with a useful tiled porch canopy, you head through to the initial lobby area which offers ample space, original flagstone flooring as well as an exposed stone inglenook fireplace. From here, you can head left into the sitting room or head to the kitchen/ dining room at the rear. The sitting room is a bright and spacious room with sash windows to the front aspect and flagstone flooring. Presumably, two rooms historically, the room boasts original fireplaces at either end, one of which has an inset log burner and glazed display cabinets fitted to either side of the chimney breast. The first floor can be accessed from here via the staircase, which has a handy cupboard built in beneath.

To the rear of the house, the welcoming kitchen/diner offers a fantastic vantage point to enjoy the beautiful views over the landscaped gardens and beyond. The kitchen again offers many original features, such as flagstone flooring, exposed brick, stone and timbers and panel doors. It has been well appointed with a farmhouse-style range of base and drawer units, oak worktops and an inset Belfast sink. The vaulted ceilings complement the sense of space, and to the end, you will find the doorway through to the rear hallway where the property offers further accommodation including the rear facing office, a well-appointed additional shower room and access to the attached stone barn and garage. The barn offers enviable amounts of space and is currently being used for storage, however, has the added benefit of light, power and plumbing, as well as being dual aspect, proving access to the rear garden and into the garage area.

Moving up to the first floor, you will find stripped panel doors providing access to three of the four bedrooms, as well as the family bathroom. There is a window to the rear aspect, providing elevated views over the countryside beyond. Two of these three bedrooms are doubles and between them retain period features including exposed beams and stonework, stripped flooring and a feature fireplace. The bathroom is particularly spacious and again shows exposed original beams, as well as benefitting from a four piece bathroom suite comprising a roll edge bath, separate shower, w/c and wash basin. The room is dual aspect with windows to both the front and rear, and as such is particularly bright. The generous master bedroom is located on the second floor and offers triple-aspect views, wooden flooring and a very handy walk-in wardrobe.

Sidelands is to be found in the middle of this highly sought after village that lies a very short distance from Wells. The village has a popular hotel/restaurant, Church, Village Hall and a thriving community. The nearest primary school is at West Pennard which is only a short drive. North Wootton lies away from any main roads and is ideally placed for quick access to Glastonbury, Wells, Street and Shepton Mallet with the nearest mainline train link being at Castle Cary. Wells itself is the smallest Cathedral City in England and boasts beautiful architecture including the Cathedral and Bishops Palace. There is a bustling high street together with a twice-weekly produce market in the Market Square and a vast array of clubs and societies.

Approached from the front with parking set to the right-hand side of the cottage. The garden to the rear is of a generous size and has been beautifully landscaped and is enclosed by a combination of stone walls and mature hedgerow. It is largely laid to lawn with a variety of well-established planted beds interspersed throughout. There is a patio seating area which abuts the house and provides a great space for al fresco dining, whilst enjoying the local wildlife and countryside views beyond the garden.
