About the area
Stoney Stratton is a very pretty hamlet of mainly period houses & cottages surrounded by unspoilt rolling countryside looking towards Small Down Knoll (the site of an iron age hill fort). It is within the parish of Evercreech which is a nearby village with amenities including a doctors surgery, convenience store, bakery, chemist and public house. Castle Cary, Street, Glastonbury, Wells, Shepton Mallet, Sherborne and Bruton are all within easy reach and offer a wide range of facilities.
Bath, Bristol and Yeovil are also within easy commuting distance and the A303 is a few miles south. Within 5 miles, at Castle Cary, is a main line station to London Paddington (90 minutes). The beautiful countryside is easily accessed with many footpaths and bridleways. There are many excellent state and independent schools nearby including Millfield, Sherborne, Downside, Wells Cathedral and the Bruton schools.
Lyndon is approached from the village lane through an entrance in an old stone boundary wall. A generous parking area for several cars sits in front of the garage and a path leads to the front door.
A fully glazed door with glass side panels opens to the entrance hall which connects the main rooms of the house. The good size and dual aspect sitting room is light and spacious with a glass single door and windows to the rear which enjoy a charming rural outlook. In addition there is a wood burner providing a lovely focal point.
The kitchen & breakfast room is also a good size with plenty of room for a dining table table. There is a good variety of newly fitted drawers and cupboards with wood effect worktops and further storage is provided in a larder. There is an electric cooker and space for a washing machine. The sink has a delightful outlook onto fields to the rear and a door leads outside.
