Somerton is a generously proportioned family home with large, bright usable spaces. The present owners have painstakingly extended and refurbished the house, successfully converting a simple chalet bungalow into a three storey 5,065sqft property. Although renovated in 2015, the atmosphere is of a traditional property with original period features. The parquet floors rediscovered during the renovation work have been lovingly restored throughout the ground floor. There is an open fire and two log burners to while away long winter evenings. On entering Somerton you are presented with a grand dining hall boasting a 17ft ceiling. Natural light floods through a large window and a log burner positioned in the corner. Through the dining hall is the snug, a good size sitting room with an open fireplace and bi-fold doors onto the garden. To the left of the hall, there is a useful study/playroom and guest loo. The open plan kitchen/diner has contemporary curved units with wooden worktops. It runs the length of the house and connects to a large sitting room. This layout offers a substantial living space for the whole family with connecting doors between rooms. This living space has three sets of bi-fold doors in total, which open onto the ¾ of an acre garden, perfect in the summer.

The first floor landing is bright, open and leads to five bedrooms. The master and guest bedrooms both have en-suite bathrooms and impressive vaulted ceilings. There is also a family bathroom and three spacious double bedrooms on this level. The second floor is currently a games room which could be utilised as a 6th bedroom with an en suite bathroom.

Outside

This imposing house sits behind a handy horseshoe shaped 'in and out' driveway which saves turning, and can accommodate several cars. The garden is laid mostly to lawn with a small area of woodland to the rear. The three bi-fold doors between the house and garden makes it perfect for inside/outside living and entertaining guests on warm summer evenings.
