Full description

A spacious 3 bedroom grade II listed period home in a sought after village location. The property has accommodation arranged over 3 floors and offers potential to modernise and improve. Private garden and garage. Offered with no ongoing chain.

The Property - 14 Brettingham Court is a beautifully proportioned 3 bedroom home which forms part of a successful conversion of a section of Hinton House to create 18 properties arranged around a central courtyard. Dating from the 18th Century and justifiably Grade II Listed, this property exhibits a variety of attractive character features, not least the fascinating Hinton Stone from which the property is built and the coach house-style arched windows found on the ground floor. The high ceilings and large windows typical of the Georgian period of architecture can be found throughout, creating a comfortable home with a natural sense of elegance and space which now offers potential for an incoming purchaser to sympathetically improve and update the property to suit their individual needs.

Internally, the accommodation is laid out over three floors with generously proportioned rooms throughout. Entry through the front door is to the ground floor, where you are welcomed by a spacious entrance hallway with stairs rising to the first floor, beneath which is a storage cupboard with a shoe rack. A particular feature on the ground floor is the sitting room which, with it's vast south-facing sash window and doors overlooking the garden and a feature fireplace, offers tranquil and luxurious surroundings for any occasion from casual relaxing to informal entertaining. A charming view across the garden towards the rear of Hinton House and the surrounding parkland can be enjoyed from the sitting room, forming a reminder of the unique location the property occupies and the stunning countryside in which Hinton St George stands.

From the sitting room, stairs descend to the lower ground floor which is arranged as a large utility room/workshop and a further reception room from which double doors lead out to a sunken courtyard. These spaces offer great flexibility for a variety of purposes, including use as hobby spaces or as ancillary accommodation for those requiring semi-independent living facilities to house dependent relatives, teenagers or staff; an adaptation that could be affected with little effort required. The first floor is dedicated to sleeping and bathroom accommodation, with three well proportioned bedrooms, two of which benefit from built-in wardrobes and one with shower, wash hand basin and an en suite cloakroom installed, allowing for the creation of fully en suite bathroom if desired. The family bathroom is also on the first floor, offering a bath with shower over, WC and wash hand basin.

Domestically, the property can easily be equipped with all that is required to facilitate a busy modern lifestyle. The kitchen, which is located on the ground floor and enjoys a large arched window to the front, offers plentiful cupboard space as well as room for under counter appliances and a breakfast table whilst the utility room is the ideal place to keep laundry facilities separate. Storage is abundant throughout and, unusually for properties in such unspoilt villages, benefits from gas fired central heating.

Outside - 14 Brettingham Court is approached through the central courtyard which gives a fantastic sense of arrival upon passing through the entrance arch. There is a paved frontage at the front of each property, and number 14 is one of the fortunate few to enjoy a garden to the rear, which provides a sheltered, leafy oasis nestled between the rear of the property and the rear of the main house. Steps lead to the garden through double doors from the sitting room, and from here there are steps down to the sunken courtyard where there is a characterful arched dwarf door leading to a storage shed. The upper garden is primarily laid to lawn with an ornamental fishpond and an attractive array of mature shrubs; the perfect place to relax and dine al fresco when weather allows.

Parking is well provided for with a single garage with mezzanine storage and an undercover parking space situated in a block a short distance from the property. Visitors parking is also available.

Services - Mains water, drainage, electricity and gas. Gas fired central heating. There is a Residents' Association in operation at Brettingham Court with an annual charge payable as contribution to the maintenance of common areas.

Situation - Hinton St George is one of South Somerset's most sought-after villages and upon visiting the village it is clear to see why. Rows of chocolate box pretty cottages and imposing homes line the well-kept streets and a healthy community spirit prevails with amenities including a church, community shop, Dorothy's tea rooms and a highly regarded pub, the Lord Poulett Arms. The village enjoys close proximity to Crewkerne, where there is a Waitrose Superstore and a mainline station offering rail links with London (Waterloo) and Exeter, and the A303 trunk road is within easy reach, facilitating road travel to and from the South East.
Education is well catered for in the area with a primary school within the village and a variety of state and independent schools nearby including Perrott Hill, The Park, Hazelgrove and Millfield at Street.

Viewing - Strictly by appointment through the vendor's selling agents, Messrs. Stags, Yeovil office, telephone 01935 475000.

Continue through Lopen and turn right signposted Hinton St George. At the junction take the road ahead (South Street) and turn right into Gas Lane. Brettingham Court can be found at the end of this lane.
