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, Hazelgrove, Port Regis and St. Mary's Shaftesbury.
Chapel Close is an extremely popular cul de sac thanks to its close proximity to the High Street and outlook up to Lodge Hill which number 4 takes full advantage of. Chapel Close is a mainly retired neighbourhood, ensuring tranquility and a helpful local community.
4 Chapel Close is a real gem. So few properties occupy such a fantastic position, especially those in increasingly popular towns like Castle Cary. The luxury of being a few steps from the High Street and still enjoying views of the countryside and almost complete tranquility is a rare find. The bungalow is uniquely designed with exceptionally high ceilings giving a fantastic feeling of space throughout.
