In brief the property comprises an entrance porch, kitchen/dining/family room, dining room, sitting room, utility room and WC to the ground floor with four bedrooms (one master ensuite), family bathroom and study to the first floor. The current owners have transformed this property over the many happy years they have spent there to create a home which perfectly combines modern day living with traditional character. The open-plan kitchen/dining/family room is a magnificent space for family gatherings and entertaining. The triple aspect creates plenty of light whilst the addition of a wood-burner makes it a wonderful room to enjoy throughout the seasons. The sitting room also has the luxury of a wood-burner whilst the dining room will appeal to those who like a more formal dining experience. For those looking at functional elements of a home, the WC and utility room will also be of particular note. The four bedrooms to the first floor are all of good proportions with the master bedroom benefitting from its own ensuite and the spacious bathroom with roll-top bath servicing the remaining three bedrooms. There is also an incredibly useful study area situated above the utility room which will prove highly appealing for those needing to work from home. 2 The Pound also has a wealth of character features throughout including exposed beams, stripped wood-flooring, inglenook fireplaces and flagstone flooring. It is the most amazing of family homes and will appeal to those looking for idyllic village life, surrounded by stunning countryside and also within close proximity to both Bath and Bristol. Must be viewed.

2 The Pound is situated on the northern edge of the sought-after village of Oakhill. Lying some 7 miles to the north east of Wells, the village offers a good quality public house, primary school, 3 churches and doctor's surgery. The village is well-placed for road links to other towns including the beautiful Georgian City of Bath which is only 14 miles to the north. Bath also boasts a mainline train station with connections to all parts of the country and there is also a mainline station to London Paddington at Castle Cary which is some 10 miles to the south. There are many sporting facilities within the area including various golf clubs and a short distance away is Babington House, a private members club and exclusive hotel which boasts excellent leisure facilities. There are several exceptional schools within the vicinity including Millfield, Downside and Wells Cathedral School to name but a few.

The property is approached via a large area of off-road parking for a number of cars. The garden to the front of the property is laid, in main, to lawn and complemented by an abundance of mature shrubs and colourful flora making this the perfect setting for alfresco dining and whiling away the balmy summer evenings. The property has 2 ground floor doors leading out to the rear courtyard garden. The current owners have even created their own 'garden pub' which will appeal to those who like to entertain friends and family. It is also relatively private and ideal for child's play and provides a blank canvas for keen gardeners.
