Full description

A charming Grade II listed townhouse situated in the centre of Bruton with a walled garden, converted former coach house and off-road parking.

Previously known as The Old School House, the property at 74 High Street is a substantial Grade II listed, period terraced townhouse built of local stone with a part-Roman clay tiled and part Welsh slate roof. The house as it appears today was significantly remodelled in the 18th Century but had much earlier, medieval origins. The accommodation is well roportioned with good ceiling heights, thick walls and has great character and potential. The dining room has oak parquet flooring, beamed ceiling and French windows with working shutters opening onto a paved terrace. On the opposite side of the hall is the kitchen/breakfast room, which has a stone flagged floor, window seat, range of wall and floor-mounted units and a fireplace fitted with a Smeg 6 hob gas-fired cooker. The sitting room also has a window seat, an open fireplace fitted with a Jetmaster grate and a door with steps leading down to the stone flagged cellar, which has potential as a study. The drawing room has a wood-burning stove and windows on two sides, including French windows to the garden. On the first floor is a broad landing with doors off to 3 double bedrooms, 2 of which have views over the garden towards the famous 16th Century Bruton Dovecote, family bathroom and family shower room. On the second floor there is a large double bedroom with a separate dressing area. The coach house has been converted to provide a self-contained 1-bedroom cottage/artist's studio with an integral single garage.


Bruton Train Station ½ mile (Paddington 2¼ hours). Castle Cary 3¾ miles. A303 6½ miles. Gillingham 11¼ miles (London Waterloo 2 hours). (Distances and times approximate)
74 High Street is situated towards one end of the principal street running through the highly popular town of Bruton. The town has excellent amenities including a number of restaurants and cafés, two public houses, butcher, minisupermarkets, petrol station, pharmacy and many other shops. The town also has a Post Office, vet, doctor's surgery and dentist.
Bruton Primary School is about a five minute walk from the property, with a further four to choose from within a five mile radius and is within the catchment area for day pupils for the State secondary boarding school (Sexeys School) in Bruton. Nearby private schools include Hazlegrove, Kings Bruton and Bruton School for Girls, Millfield, All Hallows and the Sherborne schools.
