Set on the fringe of the highly popular hamlet of Clapton, offering a friendly welcoming community and well linked to Bath and Bristol, this beautifully proportioned character Villa style home dates back to the 1930's. Offering high ceilings, beautifully restored character accommodation and an abundance of light, with the potential to extend. Freehold. EPC rating F.

Marilen has a charming history of only changing hands once during its lifetime, with the original owners being known locally as successful beekeepers. Its villa-style older appearance dates back to 1936 but offers the proportions and warm cosy feeling of a much older residence. The accommodation is well laid out with two beautifully proportioned reception rooms to the front (both with fireplaces), exposed restored wooden floorboards and large southerly windows allowing the light to flood in. A traditional hallway sits through the centre with original floor tiles and useful under stairs storage. At the rear of the house is the kitchen/breakfast room which has been designed with huge thought, to seamlessly blend in with the age of the house and has bespoke fitted units, complete with a high-quality granite work surface, sunken Belfast sink and a terracotta floor. The kitchen also benefits from a wonderful gas fired Aga set in a traditional fireplace, providing a cosy warmth to the space that only an Aga can. A good size pantry also sits off the kitchen, plus a side hallway complete with a cloakroom, further store and a door out to the parking area, giving ideal access for those with dogs or after working in the garden. On the first floor, the bright central landing provides an attractive elevated view over the surrounding countryside and a pleasant quiet space to relax and read. To the front of the house are two generously proportioned double bedrooms, both with fireplaces and exposed restored wooden floorboards. A further third double bedroom complete with an airing cupboard sits at the rear. The bathroom sits alongside bedroom 3 and has a lovely traditional finish along with high-quality sanitaryware.

Marilen sits in the glorious Mendip Hills, in the rural hamlet of Clapton, which is by no means isolated and provides excellent commuting possibilities. It is equidistant to Bath and Bristol as well as being close to Wells, the smallest Cathedral City in Britain. Clapton is handy for specialist farm shops such as the one in Farrington Gurney as well as a wealth of supermarkets like Waitrose in Wells and Tesco at the end of the road. Clapton is surrounded by excellent places to eat, The Pig, Michelin Star Pony and Trap and many other gourmet restaurants and gastro pubs as well as Babbington House in Mells.

Approached off an attractive rural lane, on the outskirts of the village, the property is set up in a shared driveway with only one other property. A small section of woodland style wildlife garden sits alongside the property and a further area along the front of the house. Parking sits alongside the property providing ample parking for 3 cars. The garden to the rear slopes gently back towards the property from an established hedgerow at the rear giving a great space for an incoming purchaser to consider a project of their own as with the quiet surroundings and privacy on offer it could offer a wonderful garden to retreat into or to entertain friends in the sunnier months. A natural stone wall sits around a sunken terrace at the rear laid to stone chippings for ease of maintenance and providing an area for al-fresco dining.
