Property Description 

Corner Lodge, as the name would suggest, occupies a pleasant corner position, approached to the front there is a gated entrance that leads to pretty, enclosed garden which is mainly laid to a level lawn with a small breakfast terrace and a most amazing Clematis that fills the air with a beautiful, sweet fragrance. 
A practical covered storm porch leads to a traditional solid wood ledge and brace door which opens into the entrance hallway. From the hallway a door leads to an incredibly useful ground floor shower room and to the internal accommodation of the house. The first room you come to is a spacious and well-presented living room which overlooks the garden to the front with internal French doors to the rear that connects with the kitchen/breakfast room. The attractive oak effect wooden floor compliments the light, whitewashed walls, and an alluring cast iron wood burner provides a lovely focal point. To the left of the living room a door provide access to a second sitting/dining or even playroom which has the open plan staircase rising to the first floor, a side door which leads to the front and rear garden and neutral toned carpet. 
The impressive kitchen/breakfast room spans almost the entire back elevation of the property. The original kitchen and dining rooms were once separate, but in recent times have been sympathetically combined to create the larger open plan and sociable kitchen/diner that is so in demand for modern day buyers. Offering plenty of fitted units in a traditional and yet modern farmhouse style, there is space for a 'Rangemaster' type cooker, with plumbing for a dishwasher and an American style fridge/freezer, along with a chic island unit and a half-glazed display cabinet which add even more appeal. The kitchen/breakfast room has a large picture window, along with sliding patio doors that flow the accommodation out to the glorious south/west facing garden and pool. From a practical point of view the washing machine and tumble dryer are neatly tucked away in a generous adjoining utility room. 
On the first floor, arranged off a lovely split landing are the four individual bedrooms, three of which would comfortably take a double bed and the fourth a generous single. The rear facing rooms enjoy captivating views over the property's own garden towards the countryside and woods on Banwell Hill. 
The family bathroom completes the first floor and offers a smart white suite with heated towel rail and Jack and Jill door to the main bedroom. There is access to the loft from the main bedroom and a useful storage cupboard off the landing. 
Outside, the appeal of this enthralling characterful house continues with its beautiful private rear garden. Bounded on one side by a traditional stone walled with a pleasant privacy fence to the other it has a generous sun terrace to enjoy summer barbecues or simply reclining in the glorious sunny aspect, there is a neat level lawn with several ornamental bushes and a side access gate. However, the piece de resistance of the garden is the spectacular heating swimming pool which offers buyers the incredibly rare opportunity to bathe in their very own private pool and enjoy those hazy summer days entertaining friends and family, bliss! 
Beyond the pool and garden is a large double garage/workshop which houses the pool pump and a handy storage room for garden equipment, along with a generous open garage space, perfect for storing a classic car or tinkering to your hearts content. There is also a second floor to the garage with a further two rooms, ideal for hobbies, a gymnasium or perhaps a home office. 
What's more (subject to the necessary consents) there is huge potential for the double garage's conversion to a granny annexe/air B&B. We understand from our present owners that in fact planning for this exact purpose has been obtained and lapsed in the past.
