Delightful, spacious and comfortable village house with a fabulous, private garden and plenty of parking. NO ONWARD CHAIN


Street 4 miles, Glastonbury 5 miles, Castle Cary 11 miles, Bath and Bristol within 30 miles. An enchanting village house with spacious living accommodation, generous parking and a very attractive garden.


This Grade 11 listed property has a wealth of charm. It provides an entrance vestibule and inner hall, dining room, sitting room, summer room, utility and separate cloakroom, kitchen and a versatile study. Upstairs there are 3 double bedrooms, 2 have ensuites and in addition one has a useful dressing room. There is a family bathroom and a wide landing. Outside there is ample parking to the side and rear of the property. Also, to the side is a large, attached barn, with a separate carport at the rear. Adjoining the house on the southeast side is a covered garden room. The garden is very attractive with a combination of formal and less formal areas.


Butleigh is without question one of the most popular villages in the area and with good reason. It has a church, village shop/post office, primary school and nursery, a village and church hall and a vibrant community. Surrounded by lovely open countryside traversed by footpaths. It is also worth noting that it’s less than three miles to Millfield Senior School.


This is a house that offers the best of both worlds in location and accommodation. Set in the heart of a vibrant and popular village yet with such attractive and captivating gardens you feel you are amid a rural idyll. Inside it offers the character and charm you would expect from a Grade 11 listed house, yet with an emphasis on contemporary comfort and space.


The central front door opens to a vestibule then an entrance hallway. To the left is a sitting room and right is a dining room. This is part of the original double fronted house and so they both have inglenook fireplaces, window seats and other period features such as exposed beams. The sitting room also has a woodburning stove, smoking chamber and bread oven.


At the rear of the house, on the left is the summer room and on the right is the kitchen. The summer room is a very bright space which invites the outside in, with fully glazed, folding, doors to the rear terrace and garden. The kitchen is a very generous size with engineered oak flooring, ample fitted units, attractive granite work tops, integrated dishwasher, fridge/freezer and wine cooler. A gas aga with electric oven and gas hob add on takes centre stage, a canopy above provides lighting with a concealed, pull-out extractor. There are also other bespoke built in cupboards for further storage along with plenty of room for a table and chairs making this a perfect space for big gatherings. Beyond the kitchen is a versatile study which could equally be suited to many other uses including a downstair bedroom.


Between the summer room and the kitchen is a utility room with fitted cupboards and space for a tumble dryer and washing machine. This leads to the downstairs cloak room, which is also where the boiler is located. Stairs rise from the dining room to the first floor of the original house. On the left is a charming, double aspect bedroom with very large built-in wardrobes. Steps rise to the ensuite bathroom which also has a separate shower cubicle. There are two further double bedrooms, one is to the front of the house and the other is to the rear. This has a double aspect with views over the beautiful garden, an ensuite shower room and a dressing room. The family bathroom is found off the versatile landing area, which has built in cupboards that accommodate, amongst other things, the new water cylinder. A second set of stairs descend to the kitchen.


The front door remains in use but as is so often the case with country houses, the back door is used more regularly. There is parking for a couple of cars alongside the house, and an ingenious opening-up of the adjoining barn has enabled vehicles to proceed through the barn to the rear of the property. Here there is a gravelled drive with a very appealing, open sided, double car port. A terrace leads to the rear door of the house which give access to the kitchen. Next to this is a covered, sheltered seating area for inside/outside living. The garden is a riot of colour and texture with exuberant and joyous planting. A combination of floral beds, pond, mature trees, shrubs and lawn lead to a wild area. Here you will find a wide variety of fruit trees including medlar, quince, apple, plum and a very productive vine along with a kitchen garden. Nestled in amongst the trees is a charming potting shed.

About the area

Butleigh is a friendly and popular historic village with a population of around a thousand, a thriving general stores shop and post office, an active church, a very well-regarded nursery and primary school, church hall, village hall, various societies and organisations including a local cricket club. It’s within easy reach of the surrounding towns with Yeovil to the south, Bath and Bristol to the north. The A303 is just south and there is a main rail line station at Castle Cary (Paddington about 90 minutes).


Glastonbury's past and present are linked with its dominant landmark, the Tor. It's been a religious centre throughout history and further back into the times of legends. There was a Celtic monastery here by 500 AD which, during the next 1000 years evolved into one of England's wealthiest and most influential abbeys. The town grew up alongside the Abbey and today it's a small but thriving town and a major tourist venue, welcoming thousands of visitors each year. Medieval Glastonbury - designated a conservation area - clusters around the evocative ruins of the Abbey.


Just 5 miles from Glastonbury is Wells which is the smallest city in England (population 10,000). Its centre is the Market Place (local markets twice a week) surrounded by many medieval buildings including the Cathedral and moated Bishops Palace. Immediately to the south (2 miles) of Glastonbury is the more recent town of Street and these centres provide a huge range of facilities and amenities. There are excellent state and independent schools in the area including Crispins, St Dunstans, Wells Blue School, Strode College, Millfield, Wells Cathedral School, and the Bruton schools.
