Property description

Tenure: Freehold

DESCRIPTION A rare opportunity to purchase a most attractive Grade II Listed period home, in need of some modernisation, situated in a sought-after area in a historic part of Shepton Mallet. Benefitting from both a rear courtyard and car port parking, this delightful property offers well-proportioned living accommodation over three floors including four bedrooms and two reception rooms.

A door to the front of the house opens into a spacious reception room which has two windows with original shutters (continued throughout the rooms at the front of the property), a door to the staircase and a built in cupboard which is open to the kitchen. Adjoining is a separate sitting room, which is also generous in size, enjoys plenty of natural light and includes a central open fireplace with fitted cupboards and shelving either side plus a large sash window to the front. The kitchen is located at the rear of the house and is fitted with a range of matching floor and wall units, with a built-in cupboard, space for freestanding white goods and an external door to the courtyard garden.

On the first floor, the landing space gives access to all rooms and includes a door to an additional staircase leading up to the second floor. There are three bedrooms on the first floor, all of which are double rooms. The Master bedroom is a particularly good size, also enjoying lots of natural light and including fitted wardrobes. In addition, the first floor includes a useful utility room with a sink unit, a built-in airing cupboard and a wall-mounted boiler for the gas-fired central heating (installed approx. one year ago). From here, there is access through to a family bathroom with suite comprising a panelled bath with shower over, a wash hand basin and a low level WC.

The second floor consists of one very spacious bedroom with skylight window, currently used for storage however offering considerable scope to create a Master suite (subject to gaining the necessary consents). This superb room has a vaulted ceiling with beautiful exposed beams and an adjoining walk-in storage cupboard. 

OUTSIDE There is a small area of outside space to the front of the property with gate onto Leg Square. To one side of the terrace, there is a shared car port, with the property having one allocated parking space. A pathway to the rear of the car port leads through to the rear courtyard garden, which is enclosed by walling and fencing and laid to patio. We understand the neighbouring property (to the left) has a right of access across a small section of the courtyard to the rear gate.  

LOCATION The historic market town of Shepton Mallet is located in the Mendip district of Somerset, five miles east of Wells, England's smallest city. Both the City of Bristol and the picturesque City of Bath, a World Heritage Site, are located just 18 miles away and easily accessible. Shepton Mallet itself offers a range of local amenities and shopping facilities including a large supermarket, leisure centre, lido with fitness centre, a choice of pubs and restaurants, dentists and doctors, a Grade I Listed church and both primary and secondary state schools. There are also many highly-regarded independent schools (Prep & Senior) within easy reach, such as All Hallows Prep School, Downside School, Wells Cathedral School and Millfield School. For those travelling by train, Castle Cary station (which has direct services to London Paddington) is situated only six miles away. 

DIRECTIONS From our office proceed along Commercial Road to the mini-roundabout and turn right onto Rectory Road. Take the second turning on the right into The Batch, follow the road into Peter Street and down the hill into Leg Square where the property can be found on the left.
