Seller Insight

Little Orchard is a fantastic family property in the desirable village of Beckington in the idyllic Somerset countryside, 11.2 miles from the centre of Bath.

The vendors comment: "Previously a much loved family home for the owner, his children and grandchildren, it offers a luxury of space and great comfort with opportunity for remodelling. Little Orchard combines the best of town and country living. You first sense the delight of Little Orchard as you sweep up the long driveway and soak up outstanding views across to beautiful Orchard Leigh and its golf course."

The house stands elegantly in its setting, surrounded by lawns and backed by a soft border of trees. "The kitchen is the generous social hub of the home and the cook can chat to family and friends with immediate access to the allotment and orchard. The house facilitates easy entertaining, and the utility space and side access is a place to clean and leave muddy boots and dogs after a long walk," say the vendors.

They continue: "The dining space flows from the kitchen, through to the lounge continuing the sense that Little Orchard and the outside world merge into one. The abundance of windows fill the house with natural light even on the dullest of days acting as a frame for tranquil views across the garden. The lounge is a great all year room, where the large open fire creates a cosy winter refuge, and if you open the patio doors, the garden and house become one glorious whole in the summer months."

The sellers add: "The sweeping lawn, apple orchard, roses, shrubbery and silver birch trees remind you that Little Orchard is in a location of great natural beauty. It is perfection to sit on the patio and watch the sun go down or view unrivalled sunsets from the balcony access off the master bedroom. This property is in a superb location waiting for the new owners to take it into the twenty first century."

Beckington is a pretty and community minded village with a variety of clubs and societies to welcome you including tennis, choir, cricket and photography clubs. There is a thriving church council and an excellent village school. Nearby are two great farm shops amidst a choice of local hostelries.

The historic and vibrant town of Frome is 3.4 miles away, and offers a wide variety of shops, restaurants and a country market. Its thriving arts calendar includes the annual Frome Festival, Cheese Show and Christmas Extravaganza.

There are excellent road links to nearby Bath, the surrounding area and the M4 making it a good commuter base. Westbury train station is just 6.3 miles away offering excellent rail links to London Paddington.
