Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
An extended and beautifully presented detached house, pleasantly located within the sought-after village of Baltonsborough. Faced in attractive Lias stone, this finely-proportioned home includes four bedrooms, a spacious open-plan kitchen/dining/family room and a separate sitting room with a wood burning stove. There is also ample driveway parking, surrounding gardens and a garage with an adjoining home office. EPC rating D.

At the front of the property, there is an open-fronted stone porch, leading to the main door. The house is entered via a central hall, which incorporates the staircase to the first floor accommodation, a large built-in double coats cupboard, a separate airing cupboard, and access into a downstairs WC and both reception rooms. The hall has a lovely Travertine tiled floor, which continues into the kitchen/dining/family room.  To the left of the hall is the sitting room, which is triple-aspect and includes an oak floor and a set of double glazed patio doors to one side. Within the sitting room is a fireplace with an inset wood burning stove, creating a superb focal point and perfect for those colder evenings. 

One of the main selling points of this delightful home is the extended and open-plan kitchen/dining/family room, which is dual-aspect and ideal for families and for those who enjoy entertaining. 

The kitchen is fitted with a range of floor and wall units and includes a Belfast sink, sensor-controlled floor lights, an integrated Bosch dishwasher and an LPG-fired freestanding Rangemaster range cooker with an extractor over. Other points of note in the kitchen are the under-unit and display cupboard lighting, space (and plumbing) for a freestanding American style fridge/freezer and granite work surfaces. 

The family area offers plenty of space for soft furnishings, television etc. and the dining area can comfortably accommodate a good size table and chairs. Double glazed sliding doors then open out to a section of courtyard at the rear, and an inner door leads through to a utility room. Fitted with plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble drier, the utility provides a further sink unit with mixer taps, additional floor and wall units and a double glazed door to the rear.

On the first floor, the landing has a large window to the front allowing in lots of natural light, and includes two built-in storage cupboards and access to the insulated loft space. 

Both the master bedroom and the second bedroom are well-proportioned double rooms, with vaulted ceilings and Velux skylight windows. The Master benefits from a contemporary en-suite shower room, complete with a vanity wash hand basin, a low-level WC, a heated towel rail and a large, luxury walk-in shower cubicle with a non-slip base. There are two further bedrooms upstairs; one double and a generous single, plus a well-appointed family bathroom. All of the rooms with a front facing aspect are fitted with attractive double glazed sash windows.

The sought after village of Baltonsborough lies a few minutes' drive from Glastonbury and has a public house, a church, an active village hall, a primary school and a fantastic village shop. The cities of Bath and Bristol are within 30 miles to the north, plus the county town of Taunton to the west and the A303 are also within easy reach. There is a mainline train station at Castle Cary (7.5 miles away) with regular and direct services to London Paddington. Other nearby attractions include the Bath & West Showground, The Newt (a country estate with magnificent woodland and gardens) and Hauser & Wirth in Bruton, a pioneering world-class art gallery. There is excellent schooling at all levels within the immediate area, including Millfield prep and senior schools.

The property is approached via a wooden five-bar gate, which opens into a large stone chipped driveway, providing off-road parking for numerous vehicles. The driveway then leads to two detached outbuildings, located at the front of the property. The first is a stone-built single garage with an 'up and over' door to the front, with an adjoining home office/studio with high ceiling and side access, both of which have light and power. The second outbuilding is a lockable barn (in need of some repair), also with light and power, providing useful outside storage with an undercover area beside.

The gardens surround the property and are well-tended, mainly laid to lawn with established planted borders and a selection of mature trees and shrubs. Within the garden are several seating areas, vegetable plots and an outside tap, all enclosed by fencing and stone walling. The gardens enjoy plenty of sunshine throughout the day.
