The front entrance hall is flanked by two reception rooms. The sitting room has a dual aspect to the front and rear gardens plus a period fireplace. The music room/study benefits from a wood burning stove. The central hall has an atrium down to the garden level with full height glazing providing a light and airy space. The kitchen/breakfast room has shaker style cream units under a slate work top. There is a Rayburn stove providing not just cooking facilities but also the central heating and hot water. There is plenty of room for a dining table and a glazed door opening onto the terrace. A ground floor bathroom has a charming country cottage look with wood panelling and a free standing claw foot bath.
The first floor houses the master bedroom with triple sash windows providing far reaching views over the village towards the Mendip Hills. There is a further bedroom and shower room. On the second floor there are two double attic bedrooms once again enjoying those country views.
On the lower ground floor there is a wonderful studio/party room, or for those who need a large home office it has its own private entrance. Also on this floor is the laundry room, boot room and workshop.
Hillside benefits from a wonderful walled garden accessed from the lower garden level as well as the kitchen terrace. A courtyard garden adjacent to the studio is a charming spot with a beautiful Acer taking centre stage. Raised stone borders planted with roses and honeysuckle provide wonderful scent. To the rear, double doors from the kitchen open onto a terrace with central steps leading down to the garden. The dry stone walling encloses a long lawn interspersed with herbaceous borders plus trees and shrubs. Roses, foxgloves and lupins create the romantic cottage garden theme. At the far end is the vegetable patch and fruit trees.
