About the area
Sparkford is a well-located village between Castle Cary, Sherborne and Yeovil. The A303 is nearby, providing good access to the larger surrounding towns and London. Within the village is a useful convenience store and fuel station, a church, active village hall, and Hazelgrove prep school. There is also highly regarded educational provision at Bruton, Sherborne, Street, etc. At Queen Camel just 2 miles away is a new First school, and friendly Medical Centre.
Nearby, Castle Cary is a delightful small market town with a number of traditional shops and boutiques. These shops cater for most everyday needs whilst Wincanton, Sherborne and Yeovil are all close by. Salisbury, Taunton, Bath, Bristol and Exeter are in easy driving distance. On the outskirts of Castle Cary is the railway station with its direct line to Paddington.
Since their purchase of the property in 2018, the owners have gone to incredible lengths to complete this magnificent transformation of the former dwelling. Having nearly doubled the original accommodation, it now spans over 3,300 sq.ft. and they have created a completely unique property which is sure to impress. High quality materials have been used unsparingly and great thought has been given to making sure the layout complements family living. New flooring has been incorporated including new carpets to all the bedrooms and reception rooms, plus Karndean wood effect floor tiles to the kitchen.
The front door sits underneath the attractive newly constructed oak framed porch and opens into the entrance hall. The hall is notably wide, setting the tone for the proportions of the rest of the property. On either side of the hall there are two reception rooms being the sitting and formal dining rooms respectively. Both rooms have an outlook to the front and the sitting room enjoys a bay window and fireplace with inset wood burning stove.
At the far end of the hall is the kitchen dining living room which is the true centrepiece of this refurbishment. There is a beautifully fitted kitchen with a vast central island, quartz worktops and up-stands, handleless drawers and units, LED spotlights and a breakfast bar adjoining the island with contrasting oak worktop. There are plenty of integral appliances including a coffee machine, two Neff self cleaning steam ovens, a Neff combo oven/ microwave, 5-ring induction hob, proving drawer, fridge freezer, two wine coolers and a dishwasher. The rest of the room forms an L-shape where there is ample room for a dining table underneath the contemporary sky lanterns and there are two sets of French doors leading out to the garden. Adjoining the kitchen is a study which has bi-folding frosted glass doors, meaning it can be incorporated into the kitchen dining living area or shut off from it if desired. Also adjoining the kitchen is the utility.
To the right hand side of the stairs is a cloakroom. The stairs have oak balustrades and newel posts with glass panelling in between. They rise to the first floor landing where there are four expansive bedrooms, all having built-in wardrobes, and a family bathroom leading off.
The master suite is another eye-catching addition to the property, having a feeling of true luxury. The bedroom itself is of immense proportions, and if this wasn’t enough there is a first floor living/day room adjoining, as well as an en-suite and large dressing room. French doors open out to Juliet balconies from both the bedroom and day room. Within the dressing room there is plenty of built in wardrobes and the en-suite has stylish fixtures including a walk-in shower, basin, w/c and toilet.
The guest bedroom at the far side of the landing also has an en-suite with bath and separate shower, and the bedroom at the top of the stairs has a Juliet balcony too.
The family bathroom is yet another room of generous proportions and beautiful styling. It has a walk-in shower, free-standing bath, basin, w/c and skylight.
From the lane, the newly paved driveway leads up to the double garage providing parking for several vehicles. The garage has an electric roller door, french doors out to the garden and a door back into the house respectively. The current owners have carpeted the garage and are currently using it as a gym and it could be suitable for a variety of other uses if desired.
The gardens lie to the rear of the house, enjoying a westerly aspect making the most of the afternoon sunshine. There is a patio area immediately outside the house which is ideal for a BBQ, being a real sun trap.
The patio also benefits from an Arctic Spa hot tub.
A path leads through the garden, flanked on both sides by neatly clipped lawns and on the right hand side there is a beautiful mature apple tree. Towards the end of the garden there is a meadow area, designated for wildlife and opposite there is a large chicken pen. Beyond the gardens, there are lovely views over the fields to the rear.
Mains water, drainage and electricity, oil fired central heating.
