Full description

A fine modern detached house situated in a quiet location within one of the area's most sought after villages. 4 double bedrooms (2 en-suite), drive and double garage, terraced rear garden backing onto pasture, fine views and HEATED SWIMMING POOL.

High Standing comes to the market for the first time in over 30 years, testament to the enjoyment that the property and village has given to the owners.

Built in the mid 1980’s with re-constituted stone elevations, the house has been very well maintained over the years and has had the benefit of a double storey extension at the front providing for a much larger kitchen and a large and welcoming entrance porch/hall.

The gas centrally heated and double glazed accommodation comprises an appealing entrance hall with limestone flooring (underfloor heating), a generous L shaped reception room with a central open fireplace and oak flooring, a well equipped kitchen/breakfast room with the kitchen area containing numerous integrated Siemens appliances (including a coffee maker) and having ample space for an American Style fridge/freezer.

Beyond is a useful utility room with downstairs WC off and offering direct access into the garden.
The first floor offers a master bedroom suite with an en-suite shower room and a built-in wardrobe complex. In addition there are three further double bedrooms, one being a most useful guest suite with en-suite shower room, whilst the two further bedrooms are supported by a particularly large bathroom with Whirlpool bath and separate shower enclosure.

Due to the elevated nature of the property, many of the first floor rooms offer superb countryside views beyond the village.

The highly sought-after village of Norton sub Hamdon, famous for its period architecture with many homes built of local Hamstone. The village has an excellent community feel with numerous clubs and societies and also has the enviable feature of a community run village shop. There is also a popular public house, primary school, church and village hall.

The village is only some 10-15 minutes drive from the larger commercial town of Yeovil and also very accessible to nearby Crewkerne which has a Waitrose supermarket and a mainline rail station with direct access to London Waterloo. For those needing trunk road access, the A303 is also a short drive to the north.

Secondary schooling is provided at Stanchester School situated in the nearby village of Stoke sub Hamdon and other secondary schools in Yeovil whilst there are private establishments at Perrott Hill, The Park School, Hazelgrove and Sherborne Schools.

High Standing is approached via its own private driveway providing parking for several vehicles and within which is the DETACHED DOUBLE GARAGE. This features an electrically operated roller door, extensive internal space, roof storage and a rear personnel door.

The front garden is lawned with well planted and mature borders and twin entrances opening to the rear.

The rear garden has been carefully landscaped with three tiers connected by short flights of steps. Immediately behind the house is a substantial sun terrace (garden faces approximately south west), ideal for garden furniture and BBQ’s etc.

The middle tier features the immaculately kept HEATED SWIMMING POOL (with cover) that has provided many hours of fun and entertainment over the years. Beside the pool is a small area of lawn, ideal for sun loungers and also features a recently constructed summer house that could easily be used for a home office or similar.

Further again is a gravelled top tier which is an ideal space for a table and chairs from which wonderful views can be enjoyed. The rear fenced boundary contains a pedestrian gate with access onto the adjoining pasture where a public footpath allows for rural walks and which connects to the neighbouring village of Chiselborough.
