About the area
Castle Cary is described by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner, the eminent architectural historian, as Somerset's prettiest town, set in beautiful unspoilt 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.
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.
It’s very clear to see that during the renovations incorporating natural light into the living spaces was a priority. Every room is bathed in light especially the kitchen/dining/living room with it’s southerly outlook, Velux windows and bi-folding doors. Immediately as you enter into the welcoming hall, the view through to the garden can be seen through the double glass doors into the kitchen.
To the left of the hall is the sitting room which, like the rest of the house, has energy efficient LED spotlights plus plenty of natural light coming in through the front facing bay window.
The main living area of the house is definitely the L-shaped kitchen, dining and living room. This is a room perfectly suited for modern day living thanks to it’s flexibility and also the social aspect it offers. Within the kitchen itself there is a stunning range of contemporary fitted units with integrated appliances including an induction hob, two Lamona ovens, a dishwasher and fridge/freezer. The white tiled floor with underfloor heating wraps round into the dining/living area where there are bi-folding doors for inside outside living during the summer months. The underfloor heating also continues into the utility adjacent.
Also on the ground floor is a double bedroom and a modern, well appointed shower room with a walk in shower opposite which could perfectly fit a less mobile relative if required.
An oak and glass stair case rises to the first floor where there are three further bedrooms, two of which are doubles and the master enjoying the benefit of an en-suite. In addition there is the family bathroom with a bath with overhead shower, basin and basin plus an airing cupboard across the landing.
At the front of the property there is a generous parking area with room for several vehicles. To the rear there are large southerly facing gardens with mature trees and shrubs giving a good degree of privacy. Immediately outside the kitchen/dining/living room is the sublime decking area which spans nearly 40’ across the back of the house.
