Winyards is a fantastic family home which was built for the current owners to an individual design, and offers versatile, family orientated accommodation with a high quality finish. Having been constructed a little over 3 years ago this attractive property reflects a desirable rural lifestyle with modern conveniences catered for, whilst fine timber has been used to great effect both inside and out, complimenting the neutral decor and adding stylish touches of character. Owing to its' elevated position on the edge of Hardington Mandeville, the property boasts some of the finest views in South Somerset with an impressive vista across seemingly infinite countryside to the front and an outlook stretching over the village to the hills beyond from the rear and side. Large windows and glass doors have been utilised to take best advantage of the views, which has the additional benefit of ensuring that natural light is abundant throughout.
The heart of this home is undoubtedly the open plan kitchen/family room which is a highly sociable space offering clear areas for sitting, dining and cooking, perfect for informal entertaining as well as day-to-day family life. Glass doors to the front and rear serve the dual purpose of enabling an effortless transition of indoor/outdoor living whilst ensuring that the panoramic views in both directions can be taken full advantage of, whilst a touch of character is added by a wooden frame between the kitchen and sitting areas and a full gable wall of glass. The kitchen area is well equipped with farmhouse-style units beneath wooden work surfaces, amongst which a built in fridge/freezer and dishwasher are concealed, which continue the theme of modern facilities with timeless classical styling found throughout the property.
In addition to the kitchen/family room Winyards enjoys two further reception rooms which help to provide a space for any occasion. A comfortable sitting room is a wonderfully relaxing space at any time of day, with a large window to the front allowing natural light to stream in and a fireplace with a multifuel burner conjuring images of the perfect environment in which to unwind during cold winter evenings. The dining room is an excellent place for more formal parties as well as family meals, with double doors leading out to the garden providing the opportunity for guests to admire the lovely rear outlook whilst dining. A versatile space, this room could also lend itself to use as a play room, den or ground floor bedroom amongst many other uses, thus allowing the property to be adapted to suit a variety of potential purchasers.
Bedroom space is well provided for with 4 double bedrooms arranged around a spacious central landing on the first floor. The master bedroom is a particularly fine feature of the property; high ceilings with windows taking full advantage of the gable give an abundance of light and a sense of air whilst forming the perfect place to enjoy the views, and there is also an en suite wet room which is attractively tiled and fitted with a monsoon shower head behind a glass screen, WC and wash hand basin. The family bathroom is also found of the first floor which is finished to a high specification and, although not positioned to benefit from a window, is provided with excellent natural light via a light tunnel.
Domestically, there is a utility room adjoining the kitchen, the floor of which is covered with forgiving tiles making this an ideal place to enter the property through a door to the side with muddy shoes or dogs. Laundry facilities are available here with fitted units and a work surface, beneath which is plumbing for a washing machine and a built-in freezer. From the utility room a door leads into a study which is an excellent asset for those working from home or desiring a place for removed study with a window overlooking the rear garden. Built in storage facilities are provided by a large under stair cupboard in the kitchen and double wardrobes in bedroom 3, and there is also a cloakroom on the ground floor.OUTSIDE
Winyards enjoys a generous plot of 0.69 of an acre which is arranged as a large parking and turning area to the front, and a timber garage and sizeable garden to the rear which is currently divided by a fence to provide an area of paddock. The garden is primarily laid to lawn with mature hedges on each side, thus easily enclosable for child and dog security, and with the paddock area capable of being enlarged or reduced in size, offers great potential for further landscaping or vegetable growing if desired.
Parking facilities are excellent; from the lane wooden gates lead into a gravelled driveway in front of the property offering parking and turning for a number of vehicles. The gravel continues to the side of the property and towards the garage to the rear, providing further space for parking small vehicles or trailers. The garage is equipped with power and light, and there is a concrete base already in place behind should and incoming purchaser wish to install a shed, field shelter or summerhouse.SITUATION
