This four-bedroom detached house occupies a position on the north side of East Coker, one of the area’s prettiest and most sought-after villages with a host of period properties constructed from the local hamstone.

Inside, the property is presented in superb decorative condition with fine finishes and modern, contemporary fixtures and fittings. Machined oak and tiled flooring runs throughout the ground floor creating a seamless flow between the rooms. The dual aspect sitting room has a focal fireplace with a wood burner and a snug area with bi-folding doors that open to the garden and covered terrace. The hi-end kitchen is a highlight of the house with its sleek and glossy cream-coloured units, contrasting dark work surfaces, feature lighting and breakfast bar, that then leads to a separate dining area.

On the first floor, there are four bedrooms and a hi-specification family bathroom with a spa bath and mood lighting. The principal bedroom benefits from fitted wardrobes and an ensuite shower room, also with mood lighting.

Outside, the low-maintenance rear garden offers a high degree of privacy and features a powder-coated metal pergola over the terrace, a large area of lawn, gravelled pathways and a summerhouse.

At the front, the driveway provides enough parking space for several vehicles and leads to a double garage.
