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.
Medlars has surprisingly large accommodation beyond it’s unassuming front elevations. The house really is a Tardis and would make a lovely family home. From the parking area, the front door leads in to the entrance hall which connects the main living rooms of the property. The sitting room is located at the rear of the house, and enjoys a large window looking out over the garden. Internally there is a wood burning stove and a most useful cupboard underneath the stairs.
Adjoining the sitting room is the kitchen which has plenty of room to sit or dine and has french doors that open immediately onto the garden and terrace. Within the kitchen there are many wooden units with laminate work surfaces and integral appliances including a mid-level electric oven with grill above, gas hob plus room for a dishwasher by the sink. Off the kitchen is a utility where there are further storage units, a sink and a side door leading out.
On the ground floor there are three good sized double bedrooms which could equally be fit for a variety of other uses for example a music room or study. These three rooms are serviced by the family bathroom where there is a bath with overhead shower, basin, and w.c.
A staircase leads up to the first floor loft conversion, within which is a comfortable double bedroom with en-suite shower room, walk in wardrobe, and masses of storage within various cupboards under the eaves. This bedroom enjoys fine views in a southerly direction.
In front of the house is a large gravelled parking area, suitable for several cars.
At the back of the house is the garden which is full of mature shrubs and laid to lawn. There is a substantial timber shed for storage of garden tools and furniture and a smaller shed behind. Also within the garden are several productive raised beds for vegetable growing. The earlier mentioned seating terrace is a real sun trap due to it’s southerly aspect.
