Footsteps is an individually designed detached house built in 1993 with elevations of local Lias stone with cut hamstone quoins and stone mullioned windows contained under a slate roof.

The particularly spacious accommodation, which has an oil fired heating system, briefly comprises a covered entrance veranda, reception hall, large sitting room with feature fireplace, separate dining room, hardwood framed conservatory, spacious kitchen/breakfast room with 4 oven Aga, utility room, shower room, boiler room/store and office (former garage). On the first floor there is a galleried landing, master bedroom with dressing room and en-suite bathroom, three further double bedrooms and family bathroom.

Outside there are garden areas to the front, a large portal framed outbuilding housing haystore and tack room, two stone stables, feed store and covered horse walker. To the rear there is an extensive lawned area, various fruit trees, mulberry bush, walnut trees and level paddocks.

Footsteps is well located off a quiet no-through lane on the edge of the pretty South Somerset village of Charlton Adam, made up of for the most part period stone built houses and cottages for which the area is well known. The villages of Charlton Adam and Charlton Mackrell lie close together and share amenities such as the primary school, post office/store and public house.

The village is surrounded by beautiful walking country and is well placed for the market town of Somerton, with Castle Cary, Street (Millfield School), Glastonbury, Wells and Yeovil all within easy access. There is a mainline railway station at Castle Cary with regular services to London Paddington. The A303 (linking with the M3) is a short drive away giving good road access to London and the Home Counties.

Double entrance gates open onto a tarmac driveway, with a turning circle centred around a large fish pond, which gives ample parking in front of the house. The drive is bordered by shaped lawns with mature trees and hedging to either side. The extensive rear gardens are predominately laid to lawn with various fruit trees, again bordered by mature trees and hedging.

Access to the covered horse walker and paddocks are through wooden gates from the side of the garden. The paddocks provide a good space for those wishing to keep horses and includes planning permission for a 65m x 35m sand school.

Within the boundary of the property there is a large portal framed Outbuilding 51' x 43' overall, with internal hay store and tack room. There are two stone stables and a feed store.

In all the property extends to approximately 5.44 acres.

There is an option to purchase, by separate negotiation, the adjoining stable yard currently laid out as a traditional quadrangle and comprising 18 stone built stables cantered around an area of lawn.
