About the area

Hembridge is a very small, quiet hamlet between Wells, Glastonbury and Castle Cary. Wells is the smallest city in England (population 10,000) lying in beautiful countryside between the Somerset Levels and the Mendip Hills. There is a central market place (local markets twice a week), many medieval buildings including the Cathedral and moated Bishops Palace, a small but busy local shopping centre and a broad range of societies and activities. Glastonbury's past and its present are linked with its dominant landmark, the Tor. It’s been a religious centre from the times of legends. A Celtic monastery evolved into one of England's wealthiest and most influential abbeys. The town grew up alongside the Abbey and is now a thriving market town and a major tourist venue. Medieval Glastonbury - designated a conservation area - clusters around the evocative ruins of the Abbey.

*

Castle Cary is another delightful and historic town which lies to the east and which has a main line train station to London. There are facilities and amenities in the surrounding towns to suit most needs and excellent state and independent schools including local primary schools, Strode College, Millfield, Wells, Cathedral, Hazelgrove, All Hallows, Downside, Sherborne and the Bruton school. The hamlet of Hembridge is on quiet country lane which runs from the A37 about a mile away to Glastonbury which is under 7 miles west. In the centre of the hamlet a track leads southwards to Batch Farm.

The Bungalow

The front door opens into a large entrance hall and to the right is the kitchen which has a good range of wall and base units with a laminate worktop, a 4 ring electric cooker, stainless steel sink, a Parkray solid fuel heating system and a large airing cupboard. Off the kitchen is a large utility room with alcove shelving, hand basin, space for washing machine and tumble drier, access to the large loft, a garden door and a separate wc. There's a very pleasant large open plan dining room and sitting room with lots of natural light due to its triple aspect nature and views over the surround fields. It has an open fire to one end set on a stone heart with a stone surround. French doors leading out onto the patio. The study is set off the dining room and has a large window overlooking the garden, and could be used as a further bedroom if required. There are three light and airy double bedrooms. The family bathroom has tiled walls and a white suite with a paneled bath with shower over, wc and a pedestal wash hand basin.

Planning Consent

Mendip District Council granted outline planning consent for the demolition of the existing bungalow and erection of a 2 storey detached dwelling. Dated 23rd May 2016 Ref.No. 2016/0868/OTS

Garden & Land

Approached from the quiet country lane the bungalow stands within its lawned gardens and with splendid southerly views over its land which totals towards 6 acres of paddocks and meadows of level lying permanent pasture in good heart and all within a ring fence.
