About the area
Castle Cary is described by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner, the eminent architectural historian, as Somerset's prettiest town, set in beautiful un-spoilt 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.
The newly opened “The Newt in Somerset” just outside Castle Cary is home to beautiful countryside walks set in the grounds of a Georgian country estate. Within the estate are a Hotel & Spa, Farm shop, restaurants and house & garden shop.
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.
Flat 2, Montague House is a fantastic ground floor flat which has been redecorated throughout and has also received other improvements including a brand new kitchen, new carpets throughout and a decked area to the rear of the property. The property would make a brilliant investment having previously been successfully let receiving a healthy annual yield.
From the street the flat is accessed via a communal entranceway and within the hallway is the entrance to the flat which opens into a hall with plenty of storage for coats and boots. Leading into the flat is the sitting room which is a comfortable room with a sash window looking out to the front, a feature fireplace and a large storage cupboard. The kitchen has recently been updated and includes a good range of fitted units, integral appliances including a fridge, electric hob, oven and extractor above with space for a washing machine under the units. From the kitchen is a rear door leading out.
The bedroom is a double in size and has alcoves for storage. Adjacent is the bathroom where there is a bath with overhead shower, basin and w/c.
To the rear of the property is a small decking area, rear private entrance and space for bins and external storage. There is an allocated parking space just a few steps from the flat too.
