About the area
Montacute, home to the National Trust owned Grade I listed Elizabethan Montacute House, is a highly regarded village set within beautiful surrounding countryside. In addition to Montacute House, there are several amenities including two public houses, two churches, a primary school, village shop/post office, village hall and nearby petrol station. There is an abundance of history within the village and many splendid period properties making it one of the most picturesque villages in the area. Countryside walks are easy to come by with the nearby Ham Hill Country Park being a key point of local interest.
Further amenities are easily accessed in the larger towns of Yeovil, Sherborne and Crewkerne with each town also having a rail station with links to London. The A303 is just over a mile away giving easy access to anywhere in the south of England.
There are many excellent local schools including the village primary (All Saints C of E school), the local secondary school in the close by village of Stoke sub Hamdon (Stanchester Academy) and others including Hazlegrove, Millfield, Yeovil College, the Sherborne Schools, The Park School in Chilton Cantelo and Ansford Academy in Castle Cary.
Digby House has handsome local stone elevations under a slate tiled roof. The property, despite it’s character, is not listed and has been completely renovated by the current owners.
The sitting room sits to the right hand side of the entrance hall and is a lovely warm room with a wood burning stove and parquet flooring.
On the left hand side of the hall is the dining room which has lovely engineered oak floors, an open fire with clay tile hearth and exposed stone walls. There’s a cupboard beneath the stairs providing storage.
The kitchen is part of a later addition and having been intrinsic to the recent renovations, it really is a wonderful room. There are fabulous elm units with wooden worktops and flagstone floors. There is a gas fired Aga and plumbing for a dishwasher by the Belfast sink which looks out over the gardens. From the kitchen French doors lead out to a sheltered pergola which really makes the most of the evening sun.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a utility with space for a washing machine, tumble drier and an American style fridge freezer. Off the utility is an ornate Moroccan door leading out to the seating terrace and further doors directly into the garage and into the cloakroom.
Upstairs is a light and bright landing with solid oak floors and a window overlooking the gardens to the countryside beyond. All three bedrooms are very comfortable double rooms and one of which has the benefit of built in storage.
There’s a lovely family bathroom with high quality fittings including a roll top bath, separate shower with rainfall shower head, w/c, basin, encaustic wall tiles and a window with shutters. Adjacent is a separate w/c.
The gardens, which lie to the rear of Digby House, are delightful with thoughtfully planted borders and a sunny outlook.. A path leads up through the garden by the main lawn and up to the studio/home office. This has light and power, perfect for a quiet spot within which to work. In addition to the pergola outside the kitchen there is a second pergola, covering the pathway leading through the garden. Directly in the centre of the lawn is a splendid blossoming Magnolia. The entire garden is bounded by either wall or trellis making it totally secure and private.
The garage offers parking for one car and further parking can easily be found on the street in front.
