About the area
Castle Cary is described by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner, the eminent architectural historian, as Somerset's prettiest town, set in beautiful un-spoilt countryside. The town is characterised by period buildings constructed of the distinctive honey coloured stone for which the area is well known. It remains a delightful small market town with a number of traditional shops and boutiques within the Conservation Area in which a policy of strict planning control operates to prevent inappropriate development. These shops cater for most everyday needs whilst Shaftesbury, Glastonbury, Street, Wells, Frome, Wincanton, Sherborne and Yeovil are all close by and Salisbury, Taunton, Bath and Bristol are in easy driving distance.
The newly opened “The Newt in Somerset” just outside Castle Cary is home to beautiful countryside walks set in the grounds of a Georgian country estate. Within the estate are a Hotel & Spa, Farm shop, restaurants and house & garden shop.
On the outskirts of Castle Cary is the railway station with its direct line to Paddington and the A303 road link is a few miles south. There are excellent state schools in the area - Ansford Academy boasts excellent exam grades and independent schools include the Sherborne and Bruton schools, Millfield, Wells Cathedral, Hazlegrove, Port Regis and St. Mary's Shaftesbury.
The property is a beautiful and imposing Grade II listed Victorian property with plenty of character features including flagstone floors, high ceilings and pretty fireplaces. The property has been extremely successfully let as an air BnB which could of course be continued or alternatively used as a wonderful family home.
The property is entered from the parking area at the rear of the house. The kitchen, also at the rear of the house, has a super range of fitted units with wooden worktops and integral appliances including an electric cooker, hob and grill as well as plumbing for a dishwasher and space for an upright fridge/freezer. There is a utility area with plumbing for a washing machine and further storage options. In a semi open-plan style the kitchen leads through directly into the sitting room and snug. The sitting room enjoys a fireplace with inset wood burning stove and deep alcoves for storage.
Stairs lead up to the upper ground floor where there is the first of the four bedrooms and the family bathroom. This bedroom could equally be used as a second sitting room if preferred. Here there are windows looking out to the front of the property and a classical cast iron open fireplace. The family bathroom exudes style and has a free standing bath, separate shower, basin, w/c and characterful exposed brick walling. The main front door enters into an entrance hall on this floor.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms, one of which being the master room and the other a single. The master bedroom also has a Victorian cast iron fireplace as well as a compact en-suite w/c.
A final set of stairs leads up to the top floor where there is an attic room with built in wardrobes, timber floorboards and a further en-suite cloakroom. A gable dormer window gives a lovely view of the fields across the road to the front and a Velux window to the south allows light to pour in.
Immediately outside the rear door is a sunny courtyard in which to enjoy the sunshine and even enjoy an summer’s evening G&T. Across the private lane at the back of the terrace is the allocated parking spot and the garage. A pathway to the left hand side of the garage leads through to the garden. The garden is fenced on all sides for security and predominantly laid to lawn with a patio area at the back of the garage. In addition there are several well established shrubs and trees. There is also a useful shed for storage. Beyond the garden is a pretty woodland area.
