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.
Chesswood would be an ideal investment for a buyer willing to complete a project and realise the full potential of this fabulous property. There are spacious rooms and plenty of character including bay and sash windows and timber floorboards.
The front door enters the entrance hall where there are stairs leading up to the apartment. Immediately ahead, at the rear is the kitchen which has a door out to the garden. At the front are two large reception rooms, both being light and airy thanks to the large bay windows looking out to the front over the High Street.
There are three double bedrooms, each with built in wardrobe space and one of which having a wash hand basin in the corner of the room. All three rooms are serviced by the bathroom accessed from the landing.
To the rear of the apartment is a substantial garden with vehicular access and parking for two cars. There is potentially some scope for planning here subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
Mains water, drainage and electricity. Night storage heating.
