This former public house 'The Lamb' is situated in the most sought-after village of Upton Noble.
The property has been most sympathetically extended and improved blending traditional and modern perfectly. The old render has been removed exposing the natural stone with lime mortar pointing.
Once inside the front door you walk through the hallway to the back where there are glass doors leading to the garden affording wonderful views of the Somerset countryside. Off the hallway there is a snug with flagstones floors and a wood burner - a perfect space for winter evenings. To the left there is an office/ study which has been cleverly designed using part of the old bar fittings. Beyond this is a very useful workshop/store which houses the boiler.
The rooms with the 'WOW' factor are most definitely the family sitting room and the kitchen. Both rooms are to the rear and are flooded with light. The views are simply breath-taking. The kitchen is fitted with a range of quality appliances and there is ample room for family dining. There is a walk-in pantry and separate downstairs cloakroom. There is a door to the garden.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms with the master bedroom having not only an en suite bathroom but also a dressing room. The fourth bedroom is on the ground floor and can be accessed from either the hallway or from outside. This has a kitchenette and a bathroom - ideal for a dependant relative or to provide extra income.
Dating from 1649, and not listed, the property sits in a plot totalling around 0.5 of an acre. It is mainly lawned with an abundance of mature trees and shrubs. There is a lovely vegetable garden and an area where the current owners keep chickens. Simply 'The Good Life'!
