Bedrooms: 5
This extended double-fronted Edwardian house offers in excess of 3,000 square feet of accommodation along with a wealth of original and period-style features. Melrose House has five double bedrooms, an extremely spacious kitchen/family room, three further reception rooms, a generous size utility room, two gardens and a very large double garage. EPC rating E.

The house is believed to date from 1906 and when subsequently extended, care was clearly taken to source building materials and architectural features which match the period style of the property faithfully. There is plenty of character and charm throughout, with high ceilings, sash windows, original fireplaces, cornicing, ceiling roses, tiled and wooden floors, and so much more.

The original front door, protected by a tiled canopy with ornate detail to the supporting pillars, leads into the entrance hall. Here, the impressive tiled floor, cornicing and stripped wooden doors set the tone for the rest of the house. To the right is a spacious dual aspect living room with fitted log-burner, original marble fireplace and bay window, as well as arched alcoves with fitted shelving. To the left, there is a good size reception room, currently used as a study, with bay window and log-burner. Further along the hallway, there is an additional reception room with French doors and windows which look out across the patio to the south-facing side garden, as well as another log-burner and original glass display cabinets to either side of the chimney breast. This room particularly lends itself to garden entertaining and dining. At the rear of the property is a wonderfully spacious kitchen/family room, with dual aspect windows to the side and rear, log-burner and a fitted John Franklin kitchen with oak-fronted wall and base units, Italian granite worktops and Italian porcelain flooring. Fitted appliances include double oven, induction hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. There is a rear hall leading to the side of the house from which the large utility room is accessed; this also has a full range of wall and base units, along with plumbing for dishwasher and washing machine, and room for stand-alone fridge/freezers. There is also a separate downstairs cloakroom.

On the first floor, a galleried landing leads to five double bedrooms, as well as the family bathroom; the latter offers bath and separate shower, and there is also a walk-in cupboard which can be used for airing. The master bedroom is spectacular and features ceiling-height fitted wardrobes, views over the side garden towards the countryside beyond and Glastonbury Tor. Adjacent is the ensuite bathroom which also offers bath and separate shower. Both bathrooms are of a good size and could easily accommodate free-standing baths if so desired. Like downstairs, the remaining bedrooms host a wealth of features such as cast-iron fireplaces and ceiling roses, with bedroom four having ceiling-height fitted storage cupboards.

Church Lane is a quiet no through road, found tucked away in this very popular Somerset village. The village is well known for its highly regarded primary school and there are other local facilities including a village hall, church and public house. Nearby Glastonbury, Street, Shepton Mallet and Wells offer a fine range of amenities and shopping facilities as well as good secondary schools, both state and private. Millfield Prep and Senior Schools are within easy travelling distance, as is Wells Cathedral School and also The Blue School.

To the front of the house there is an 'in and out' tarmac driveway providing parking for two/three vehicles, which is partly enclosed by walling and mature plants. On the right-hand side of the house, a drive leads to a large double garage at the rear of the property, which benefits from electric doors as well as power and light. Beyond the garage can be found the back garden, which contains several raised beds for growing vegetables, and a selection of fruit trees. There is a greenhouse and timber shed both of which benefit from power and light, as well as a second patio area. The rear garden, which adjoins a field at the back, is enclosed, peaceful and very private.
