About the area 
Clanville is a small hamlet located just north of Castle Cary. Castle Cary is described by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner, the eminent architectural historian, as Somerset's prettiest town, set in beautiful unspoilt countryside. The town is characterised by period buildings constructed of the distinctive honey coloured stone for which the area is well known. It remains a delightful small market town with a number of traditional shops and boutiques within the Conservation Area in which a policy of strict planning control operates to prevent inappropriate development. These shops cater for most everyday needs whilst Shaftesbury, Glastonbury, Street, Wells, Frome, Wincanton, Sherborne and Yeovil are all close by and Salisbury, Taunton, Bath and Bristol are in easy driving distance.

__ 
On the outskirts of Castle Cary is the railway station with its direct line to Paddington and the A303 road link is a few miles south. There are excellent state schools in the area - Ansford Academy boasts excellent exam grades and independent schools include the Sherborne and Bruton schools, Millfield, Wells Cathedral, Hazelgrove, Port Regis and St. Mary's Shaftesbury.

The Property 
Lantern Cottage has attractive, local Cary stone elevations under a tiled roof. The house is set well back from the road behind a stone wall, with gates approaching a large parking area in front of the house and garages. The property is entered via a lobby, with cloaks hanging space, into a lovely welcoming reception hall in the heart of the house. The sitting room to the right hand side is a fabulous, triple aspect room with patio doors at the rear and a gas feature fireplace in the centre of the room. At the rear of the house is the kitchen and dining room. The kitchen itself has a delightful outlook onto the rear garden and internally there are oak units under granite worktops with plenty of storage and preparation space. Integral appliances include an electric Aga, dishwasher, fridge and freezer.

* 
From the dining room sliding doors open into the conservatory which makes the most of the garden aspect and has doors out to the seating terrace. Off the kitchen is a hobby room with exposed stonework and a rear door. As there is access from both the kitchen and the annexe, the hobby room could service either part of the house.

** 
Upstairs there are three double bedrooms each with a cracking view of the garden. The master bedroom has a well appointed en-suite shower room and the two further bedrooms both have built in wardrobes. The family bathroom has been tastefully designed with a bath, separate shower, w/c, floor and wall tiles, and basin set into a vanity unit with storage. From the landing a doorway leads into a study which, like the hobby room, could also be utilised as part of the annexe.

The Annexe 
A separate entrance from the parking area enters the kitchen and breakfast room. Here there is an electric cooker, hob with extractor, plenty of worktop and storage space and also space for a small dining table. There are further doors leading back into the main house, to the garage, cloakroom and hobby room. Upstairs there is a double bedroom with wardrobe space. The room adjacent could easily be a second large bedroom or a generous sitting room. There is also a bathroom with bath, overhead shower and w/c. Velux windows allow light to flood in.

Outside 
At the front of the house is a generous parking area for several cars. A set of gates to the right hand side of the house gives access to a more secure parking area. This side access also leads round to the seating terrace at the back of the house which is a real sun trap. Steps lead up to the main lawn which is of a good size and flanked on all sides by mature trees and shrubs. Within the garden is a timber outbuilding providing plenty of storage space for garden tools and machinery. The garages are integral to the house and have up and over doors, as well as housing the hot water cylinder and boiler.
