A stunning renovation and extension of a period semi detached cottage, to such an extent that the local council have nominated the property for the William Stansell Somerset historic building awards. From the flagstone entrance hall, stairs rise to the first floor, with a deep understair store cupboard. A door takes you into a sitting room with inglenook fireplace, exposed oak panelled wall and beams, flagstone floor and a door into the dining room. Here there is a wooden floor, window to the front and steps up into the kitchen extension. Fitted with a quality range of wall, base and drawer units with inset 'belfast sink' and integrated dishwasher. There is also space for a gas fired range cooker and upright fridge/freezer. A door leads to the rear courtyard, window to the rear, with a further door opening into the utility room. This has space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier, door to a cloakroom complete with a WC and wash hand basin, and door into the rear porch.
On the first floor, there are four good bedrooms and two bathrooms off the landing, which displays an original exposed ceiling beam. The master bedroom is situated at the rear of the house, with a window overlooking the rear garden and Chalice Hill. A door opens into the en-suite shower room. The family bathroom is also at the rear, featuring a slipper bath and separate shower enclosure. At the front are the three remaining bedrooms, all well proportioned, having exposed beams and bedroom four, having an overstair cupboard.
From Chilkwell Street, a secure gate opens onto a side path and an enclosed courtyard. Here there is a feature oak arch into the porch, a seating area and steps up to the elevated garden. This has a covered barbecue, lawn and dining area, enjoying views to Chalice Hill in the north and taking in a great degree of sunlight through the day. Beyond here, there is allocated parking for two vehicles and further on, a ‘top garden’ with seating area, two garden sheds and views to both the north and south.
Glastonbury is an historic centre famous for its Tor, picturesque Abbey ruins and many legends. The town provides an eclectic mix of shops along with restaurants and pubs, mainstream supermarkets, health centres, modern library, primary schooling and St Dunstans secondary school. The neighbouring town of Street offers a further choice of shopping with Clarks Village, Strode Sixth Form College and Strode Theatre. Millfield Junior School is on the edge of Glastonbury at Edgarley and Chilkwell Street is equally convenient for Millfield Senior School in Street.
From the town centre, proceed up the High Street passing St John's Church on the left. At the top of the hill, turn right into Lambrook Street and continue to the mini-roundabout. Take the first exit signposted to Shepton Mallet, continuing along Chilkwell Street until you approach the Chalice Well on the left. A driveway can be found just before the row of red brick cottages, that extends around to rear of no.71.
