Property description

Falklands comes to the market for only the second time since the 1920's. The property was originally a cottage with a market garden when the owners purchased the property in 2005. It is situated in a superb setting, slightly elevated and commands extensive views to the Mendip Hills to the south and from the top of the grounds, there are panoramic views to Steep Holm and Flat Holm to the west.

The property has since been completely modernised, and extended, to maximise its setting combining the traditional with contemporary living with the interior having a warm and friendly atmosphere. In 2021 a stunning open plan bespoke hand painted kitchen with dining area and separate sitting area with fireplace fitted with a log burning stove, was added. Integrated appliances include two hide and slide ovens, two warming drawers, wine cooler, dishwasher, induction hob and a honed granite island unit with seating area. Electric underfloor heating covers the entire kitchen, dining and sitting area. From the dining area, the east elevation has bi-fold aluminium doors opening to a paved area facing south. Porcelain floor tiles in the kitchen/dining/sitting area continue into the utility room with integrated dishwasher, and walk-in pantry fitted to the same high standard including an integrated fridge/freezer. The well-proportioned sitting room is a lovely and comfortable room with log burning stove, oak floor and a French door opening to the rear garden. The family room with oak floor and original period cast iron bread oven and fireplace opens into the conservatory, with open views to the south, west and north. The study with oak floor and period grate, overlooks the front garden and drive, and has extensive views to the Mendip Hills. The central heating at the property has recently been upgraded to provide Air Source heat pump supplying all heating and hot water.

The first floor has five bedrooms, two with bespoke window shutters, and all with lovely views either to the Mendip Hills, or over its grounds. There are two en suite shower rooms, and family bath/shower room which is en suite to one bedroom, but also has direct access off the landing.

Falklands is approached over a sweeping drive passing the front of the house where there is a generous parking area to east, and continues to a further large parking area in front of the detached studio/garage block.

Detached studio/garage block
The detached studio/garage block is a substantial building built in 2018 with a superb studio. There is a ceramic tiled floor, three sets of double French doors opening to the south, and kitchen and shower room fitted with a sauna. Adjoining is a double garage with electrically operated roller door, and electric charger point. Alternatively, this building could easily convert into a home office/s or provide ancillary accommodation, subject to any necessary planning consents.

The Grounds
The gently sloping park-like grounds lie principally to the west, north and east of the house, all with a south facing aspect and panoramic views. From the top of the grounds the stunning view extends to Steep Holm and Flat Holm. Immediately in front of the house, facing south, and to the side of the house, facing west, is a paved terrace both of which take complete advantage of the views to the Mendip Hills to the south and towards the coast to the west. The grounds are interspersed with many mature trees and to the west there is a mixed orchard of apple, crab apple, pear, Victoria plum, and Mulberry. Below the south terrace is an attractive large, shaped border planted with a variety of shrubs and flowering plants.

In all the property extends to about 4 acres.
