About the area
Castle Cary, described by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner, the eminent architectural historian, as Somerset's prettiest town, lies 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.
The accommodation is well presented throughout, with new double glazing throughout the house in keeping with the Victorian styling. There are light and airy rooms thanks to the bay windows, and southerly aspects and great potential is offered thanks to the property not being listed.
The house is entered from a pathway that leads through the garden, into an entrance hall. The entrance hall has pretty encaustic floor tiles and a reception room on either side. The sitting room has a lovely marble fireplace and a dual aspect.
On the other side of the hall is the living room which, like the sitting room, has a fireplace and a bay window. There is also wood panelling and a large storage cupboard beneath the stairs.
