A 4 bedroom period home in grounds of 1.4 acres of with detached 2 bedroom annexe with large versatile outbuilding and yard providing extensive parking. The property is situated in a private location just 1 mile from Somerton. EPC Bands E & D.

The Property - This spacious family home is situated in a wonderful rural position, off the beaten track yet only 1 mile distant from the nearest market town, and is beautifully secluded with fields surrounding the rear garden. Originally built as a small country cottage more than a century ago, the property has been extended to great effect over the years to create a spacious and versatile home, complete with a self contained, detached 2 bedroom annexe.
The ground floor of the main house has been greatly re-modelled under the current ownership, including the addition of a new primary staircase which stands in a spacious entrance hall and leads to an attractive galleried first floor landing. A large farmhouse style kitchen, complete with Aga and a range of vanilla base units beneath a solid beech wood work surface, was added during a programme of extension 7 years ago along with a separate dining room and a useful utility room. Occupying the most ancient part of the ground floor, there is a sitting room and adjoining snug, both of which exhibit the characterful fireplaces typical of traditional country cottages with exposed stonework beneath wooden lintels and house wood burning stoves which help to enhance the cosy cottage atmospheres of these rooms. Tucked away beyond the snug is a large lobby area from which a secondary staircase rises to the first floor. Over time this has been employed for a wide variety of uses and, with a door giving access to a handy store room, could ideally suit those working from home or desiring a cloistered hobby room within the main house.

The scale of the alterations made to the property is also apparent on the first floor. Off the galleried landing there are four double bedrooms, the largest two of which were added as part of the extension. The master bedroom is a delightfully bright room which enjoys leafy views over the rear garden and has an en suite shower room, and bedroom 2 has been fitted with a full wall of built-in wardrobes, providing excellent clothes storage. Additionally, there is a family bathroom on the first floor as well as a shower room.

Annexe - Adjacent to the house there is a useful, detached annexe which enjoys it's own area of garden to the front. Internally, the accommodation is comprehensively laid out across a single storey and comprises; open plan sitting room/kitchen, conservatory, bathroom and two well proportioned bedrooms, making this an excellent opportunity to house dependent relatives or teenagers, or even to realise an income.

Outside - The house stands in a secluded and mature plot of over 1.3 acres, the majority of which is laid to verdant gardens with a wide variety of plant life, with open farmland beyond. Divided into distinctive but complimentary areas, the garden enjoys a sunny aspect with a paved sun terrace abutting the house, charming seating areas tucked away in pockets of lawn between mature beds and a summerhouse which is ideally situated towards the back of the garden and is thus an extremely private spot in which to dine and entertain al fresco.
Adjacent to the lane there is a highly adaptable barn which is currently divided into three sizeable rooms and a log store. This building enjoys power and light, with double doors leading into the larger area and a pedestrian door giving access to the smaller room, which could easily lend itself to use as a hobby room. In front of the barn there is a gated parking and turning area offering accommodation for a number of vehicles. There is an additional parking area between the annexe and the house.
Opportunities to realise "the good life" are abundant, with fruit trees and bushes as well as several raised beds for vegetable growing within the garden. A useful expanse of paddock to one side connects to the yard by a metal gate and enjoying a timber shed provides the opportunity for keeping animals.

Situation - The property is situated in a rural position, on a no-through lane serving just one other property. Despite this, the market town of Somerton is within easy reach, with a good selection of day-to-day facilities on offer including convenience stores, restaurants, pubs and cafes and an active sports club. The town of Langport is less than 5 miles distant, and a full range of shopping and leisure facilities are available in Street, just 7 miles away.
Education in the area is well catered for, with a selection of well reputed state and independent schools nearby including Chilton Cantelo, Hazelgrove and Millfield at Street. Transport links are good with the A37 and A303 both within easy reach. There is a mainline station in Castle Cary offering rail services to London (Paddington), and stations within Yeovil offer links with London (Waterloo), Exeter and Bristol.

Services - Mains electricity and water. Private drainage (separate septic tanks for house and annexe). Oil fired central heating (Separate systems for house and annexe).

Viewings - Strictly by appointment with the vendors' selling agents, Messrs. Stags, Yeovil Office, telephone 01935 475000.

Directions - From Yeovil take the A37 towards Ilchester and at the roundabout turn right into Ilchester. Continue through the village and at the next roundabout take the first turning left towards Street and Somerton. Follow this road through another roundabout and at the end of the road turn right then immediately left to continue towards Street. Turn left into Somerton and take the road towards Langport, continuing past the sports club on the left before taking the next left hand turn, shortly before leaving the town.
