THE PROPERTY:
Midknowle Cottage, a fine period natural stone residence c1880, enjoyed a superb and extensive restoration in recent years. Whilst, having been modernised for easy living, a plethora of character and charming features associated with a property of this era remains. Originally, part of the Portman Estate, the much loved family home retains the values in keeping with the times. Much thought has gone into the planning of the improvements and the attention to detail of the fittings and furnishings are of a high calibre. The focal areas of the house are noted throughout the entire living space. There is an 'Open Plan' theme that runs from the kitchen with Aga into the dining room with flagstones and ceiling beams, fireplaces and display recesses (also continues through the entire light and sunny property).
The delightful grounds are well-stocked with an abundance of perennials, established trees, terrace with seating area and formal lawn. There is a sweeping driveway leading via the grand double gates (with remote and combination) to the parking and double garage. The property is centrally located within the popular village.

THE SITUATION:
South Barrow, a thriving and rural village found nestled in the rolling hills and vales of Somerset, enjoys a sociable element with village hall and outdoor aspects such as equestrian bridleways and pretty walks around the dairy farming land. The pretty and historic market towns of Castle Cary and Sherborne lie within easy access and offer a selection of businesses and outlets for most walks of life. There are major routes such as the A303 and A37 trunk roads to larger towns and make the south west easily accessible and commuter viable.
The coast lies approx.an hours distant. The mainline station at Castle Cary to London/Paddington and the Waterloo line from Templecombe. Independent and community schools of repute from nursery to sixth form.
