Property description

This wonderfully elegant home nestles into its setting at the heart of the village of Westbury Sub Mendip, just a few minutes drive from the city of Wells with its stunning Cathedral, historic Bishops Palace and twice weekly markets.

Southdown House, built on farmland dating back to 1930, was constructed from stone reclaimed from original farm estate buildings in 1986 and successfully blends period charm with stylish sophistication to create a warm and welcoming home that you will find difficult to leave behind as you set off for work in the morning! Think contemporary country kitchen, wooden and ceramic floors, open tread stairs, window shutters, light cascading in from all directions, clean lines and a fusion of rural english and tuscan styles.

With well appointed accommodation spread across three floors, the split level design lends itself well to modern living. Suitable for both daily family life and for entertaining throughout the year the generous interior offers access to the Mediterranean rear courtyard from both the ground floor and lower ground floor.

There is an easy sense of space and flow to the layout of this attractive home.

Open stairs rise briefly from the hallway to the first floor where the spacious master bedroom looks out onto the cleverly designed and densely planted front garden. The master bedroom benefits from a large built-in wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom. There is an additional cloakroom w/c. situated off the landing.

As you descend to the lower ground floor, light penetrates into the lower landing from the wonderfully private stone enclosed Mediterranean courtyard. On this level there are two further double bedrooms which both look out toward the front garden and a family bathroom with rear window.

Externally the space appears to envelope the property and evokes a strong sense of intimacy. The rear terraced courtyard has an almost boutique feel to it, making it an ideal space for drinks with friends. The professionally planted front garden has been designed to ensure privacy. There is a shared driveway leading to private parking for 2/3 cars, a double garage and a further external garden area bordering the side entrance stable door to the kitchen with hedge, patio and seating.
