Yeowood is a spacious family home with origins in the 18th or early 19th centuries. It is unlisted. Over its history the buildings have developed exponentially to create an easily run home with a warm and friendly atmosphere. All rooms have a south-westerly aspect. An entrance drive on the eastern side of the house leads to a large parking area and continues to a large Victorian greenhouse. In front of the greenhouse is a part walled garden.

Yeowood is constructed from traditional materials with rendered elevations, casement windows and a pan-tiled roof. The large, welcoming, galleried reception hall has a cloakroom off, incorporating a shower and wine cupboard, and a staircase leading to the 3 main bedrooms located off the galleried landing. Two at the front of the house have extensive views of the Mendip Hills and are served by a bathroom. The principal bedroom includes built-in wardrobes and a picture window with westerly views over the garden. It has an en suite bathroom.

The drawing room spans the front elevation with casement windows and a glazed door leading on to a covered open loggia, ideal for al fresco dining. The large open fireplace features a wood burning stove. The room provides ample space for casual dining and entertaining. The wood block flooring extends through from the reception hall to the dining room which has French windows on to a south and west facing terrace. A door from the dining room leads to the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is equipped with an Aga and electric double oven and hob and has maple topped hand built wooden units. The breakfast area has panoramic double insulated windows and door affording views of and access to the garden. Beyond the kitchen/breakfast room is the utility room and back staircase which leads to two double bedrooms and can access all upstairs rooms. A door from the utility room leads to a lean-to glazed and tiled conservatory extending along the east elevation with access to the cloakroom at one end and the back door at the other.

Outside the back door the adjoining outbuildings have been converted into a Boiler/Boot room, a study and a two roomed studio. The study is dual aspect east/west with extensive book shelving and built-in cupboards. The Studio has arched, glazed double doors leading from the parking area and a glazed door leading into the gravel garden. Both the study and the studio have vaulted ceilings, heating and independent Wi-Fi connection.

The large and impressive original brick and glazed Victorian greenhouse with integral potting rooms offers excellent growing opportunities with the southerly aspect and deep planting beds.
