About the area
Hurcot is a delightful, unspoilt hamlet where the majority of the properties are either estate worker’s cottages to the former Hurcot Estate or traditional stone barns which have been converted to residential use. The historic market town of Somerton is just over 1 mile away and has a range of everyday amenities including shops, schools, bank, post office, library, optician, vet, doctors and dentists, churches and public houses. The surrounding towns of Street (Millfield School), Glastonbury and Yeovil are within easy travelling distance. Main line railway stations are available at Castle Cary and Yeovil. Access to the A303 at Ilchester and to the M5 motorway at Taunton (J25) or Bridgwater (J24).
Pheasants Rise is entered through a stable style front door into the entrance lobby. On the right hand side of the lobby is a ground floor wetroom with w/c, shower and basin.
The kitchen breakfast room is accessed from the lobby through a set of glass doors. The double aspect allows light to flood in and from the sink there is a delightful outlook onto the fields to the rear. There is a range of wall and base units with integral appliances including an electric cooker with hob, dishwasher and freezer. The room is extremely spacious so a large dining table would fit well in the centre of the room. A cupboard houses the oil fired central heating boiler and also provides further storage.
Double doors open into the generous sitting room which also enjoys a double aspect as well as characterful features including exposed ceiling beams and an impressive fireplace with wood burner. A glass door opens onto a seating terrace at the rear of the house.
Leading upstairs there are three bedroom and a family bathroom. The master bedroom is stunning with oak flooring, exposed beams & rafters and a stained glass window in the gable end. In addition there is a tiled area with a contemporary bath and heated towel rail.
At the other end of the house is the guest bedroom which is double in size and enjoys a lovely view of the garden and field beyond. The third bedroom could be equally useful as a study if required and has a Velux window with the countryside view to the rear.
The family bathroom is well appointed, having a bath with overhead shower, basin, w/c and heated towel rail. Along the corridor there are plenty of cupboards for easily accessible storage.
An expansive gravelled area, with stone garage, adjoins the country lane providing parking for several vehicles. There is a lawned garden, with herbaceous borders and a gorgeous Chestnut Tree (TPO), bounded by a post and rail fence to the rear. Beyond the garden is open countryside along the entire Northern boundary. At the rear of the house is a patio area and seating terrace with pergola, perfect for al fresco dining in the summer months.
