Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A substantial and prominent Listed Grade II Manor House in the heart of the village

The Manor House is thought to have been built in 1679, but was largely reconstructed in the same style in 1879 following a devastating fire. Built with attractive Hamstone elevations under a clay tiled roof, the house occupies a prominent central location in this most appealing and thriving village. With extensive accommodation arranged over three floors The Manor House has enormous charm, with some fine reception rooms and an extremely rare and extensive private garden for a central village location, extending to about 3/4 of an acre, principally to the rear of the house and accessed via a private drive from the road.

The property which has been in the same
ownership for almost 70 years, is now in need of some modernisation and offers enormous potential to provide a wonderful family home. The gardens at The Manor House are particularly appealing. To the front of the property a stone wall encloses a pretty easterly facing front garden with mature shrubs and plants and a path to the front door. A shared driveway to side of the property leads to the rear where there is space for parking together with Listed building consent for a new double garage to be constructed. At the rear of the property, which faces south, is a large, level, private and secluded lawn leading from the drawing room. Beyond that is the old grass tennis court.

Martock is a pretty, thriving village with many
attractive, honey coloured Hamstone houses and cottages centred around the magnificent parish church. The village has an excellent range of facilities including a doctor’s surgery, post office, hotel & pub, dentist, supermarket, newsagent, bakers and library amongst other things. The larger cultural and commercial centres of Yeovil and Taunton are easily accessible by road and the quaint historic Abbey town of Sherborne with its castle ruins is within easy reach. The main A303, a major route linking London with the West Country is just a couple of miles and there are mainline railway stations at Yeovil (London Waterloo about 2½hours) and Castle Cary (London Paddington about 95 minutes).
