An attractive, 6 bedroom period detached house, recently extended & improved to create a modern space for a family, with 2.4 acres of gardens and wild flower meadow, triple garage block, and driveway parking for multiple cars, located in the pretty village of Theale just outside Wedmore.
Alvion House is an attractive period family home which has been extended and vastly improved over the years by the current owners, whilst retaining the character you would expect of a home built in the late 1800's. This 6 bedroom detached home is set back from the road in an elevated position in a plot of approx. 2.4 acres.
The accommodation includes a large triple aspect kitchen breakfast room with bi-folding doors opening out to the rear garden. There is also a spacious dual aspect sitting room, which has been converted from the original blacksmith's forge with original oak beams and a wood burning stove. The main entrance hall, dining room and family / music room all have original flagstone floors the dining room itself benefits from the original inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. Finally the ground floor is completed by an excellent study / home office, downstairs cloak room, and utility room. Two staircases lead to the first floor accommodation with a master bedroom and en-suite bathroom on one side and a further five bedrooms and two bathrooms on the other.
Alvion House is located in the picturesque village of Theale, Somerset, with stunning views of the Mendip Hills. There are local amenities including a village store, post office, pubs and cafes in nearby Wedmore which is an incredibly popular village with its bustling village life and extensive facilities.
Communication is also excellent with links to the M5 at junction 22 as well as Bristol and Bath to the North. Bristol International Airport is also close by providing national and international flights. A local train service from Highbridge links with Intercity services at Taunton and Bristol Temple Meads to London Paddington taking about 1.5 hours.
There are excellent independent and local state schools in the area. Wedmore First School has Academy status and independent schools include Millfield, Wells Cathedral School, Sidcot School and Taunton School.
The house benefits from a fabulous 2.4 acre plot, which features beautifully landscaped gardens, vegetable garden, patio area for entertaining and a separate paddock.
The formal gardens at the front, side and rear enclosed by hedging and a stone wall, are mainly laid to lawn with well stocked borders, beautiful flowering plants, and mature trees. The orchard is now used as a large vegetable garden and there is a separate field currently used as a wild flower meadow, but which could be used for a variety of other uses including equestrian. Bi-folding doors lead out from the kitchen to a patio area where you can enjoy Al Fresco dining whilst taking in views of the garden and the Mendip Hills.
The current owners recently built a new triple garage with a workshop on the side, which has stairs leading to a first floor room that extends across the entire building. This versatile space has 3 velux roof windows to the rear. The garage itself has 3 up and over doors, power and light. A pedestrian door leads from the garage into the workshop, again with power and light and a door out to the front. This entire building provides potential as a home office or even a self-contained annexe (STPP).
