The Hermitage is the type of property that doesn't come on the market very often.
Close to Glastonbury Tor, and the vibrant town centre it's got a truly fabulous location.
As you approach the home, you will be greeted by two black panthers (ornamental of course!) guarding the driveway, and you'll see the walled area created from blue lias and local ham stone, giving you a sense of the exceptional nature of the property.
Once inside, on the ground floor you will find an entrance hall, snug, wonderfully bright and airy open-plan sitting room with bi-folding doors to the decking area, and a stylish, modern kitchen/breakfast room which is well-equipped with a 5-ring gas hob and range, integral dishwasher, American style fridge freezer and wall and base units with marble worktop. There's also a useful utility room with facility for washing machine and tumble dryer on this floor, as well as a cloakroom.
As you explore upstairs you will find a landing area with views over the garden, three bedrooms, main bathroom, master bedroom looking towards the Tor with ensuite shower room.
The grounds are approximately half an acre and sweep around the property. There are various mature fruit trees, a large pond which is home to dragonflies, and smaller pond is home to tadpoles and a frog family. The garden is also home to a large stone circle and sunken fire pit, as well as a healing circle which is made from spotted beech and giant red wood and has an alter in the centre.
The carport at present is open plan and has a small work shop area to the side and a staircase to the top part of the car port. This has lots of potential and subject to planning regulations this could become an annexe, art studio or home office.
The Hermitage is on the market with Heritage Estates. Price available on application.
