About the area
Castle Cary is described by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner, the eminent architectural historian, as Somerset's prettiest town, set in beautiful unspoilt countryside. The town is characterised by period buildings constructed of the distinctive honey coloured stone for which the area is well known. It remains a delightful small market town with a number of traditional shops and boutiques within the Conservation Area in which a policy of strict planning control operates to prevent inappropriate development. These shops cater for most everyday needs whilst Shaftesbury, Glastonbury, Street, Wells, Frome, Wincanton, Sherborne and Yeovil are all close by and Salisbury, Taunton, Bath and Bristol are in easy driving distance.
On the outskirts of Castle Cary is the railway station with its direct line to Paddington and the A303 road link is a few miles south. There are excellent state schools in the area - Ansford Academy boasts excellent exam grades and independent schools include the Sherborne and Bruton schools, Millfield, Wells Cathedral, Hazelgrove, Port Regis and St. Mary's Shaftesbury.
Geancot is a pretty Grade II listed end of terrace period cottage of local Hadspen stone construction under a tiled roof. The property would make an ideal home, investment or bolt hole in the country.
The sitting room is delightful with a wood-burning stove at its heart, a storage cupboard underneath the stairs and a window looking out to the front.
The kitchen and dining room lead off one another providing plenty of space in which to dine, with well-appointed units, an electric cooker and gas hob, wooden worktops plus space for a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. A stable door from the dining room leads directly out to the garden at the rear.
Upstairs there are two comfortable double bedrooms and a smaller nursery room or study. The beautifully fitted family bathroom with its roll top bath and overhead shower, basin and w/c services all three of the bedrooms.
The parking area has space for three cars and sits to the front with convenient access directly out to Ansford Hill. Surrounding the parking area are pretty flower borders and a low stone wall.
A pathway to the side of the house leads round to the rear garden. Within the garden are two separate lawn areas with deep, well-established borders and thick mixed hedgerows. There is a pond and two connected outbuildings, which are currently used as a shed and workshop/home gym. The garden is deceptively long and has been planted with young fruit trees towards the northwestern boundary with views over the surrounding fields. At the end of the garden is another outbuilding which is currently used as a wood store.
Mains water drainage and electricity. Gas central heating.
