A wonderfully spacious and recently upgraded Grade II Listed house, offering five double bedrooms and three to four reception rooms. This superb period home has a generous rear garden that backs onto open fields beyond and is situated on the edge of the popular village of Evercreech, close to Castle Cary (inc. the mainline station) and Bruton. EPC rating D.

The Retreat is a Grade II Listed residence that forms part of a former farmhouse and stables which is believed to date back to the 1600's, and is conveniently located in a quiet spot, just a short drive from Castle Cary station. This beautiful property has been recently updated by the current owners and expertly blends many of its original features such as exposed stone, beams and mullion windows with tasteful modern touches. The accommodation is extremely flexible with multiple living rooms and bedrooms spread across three floors, making it ideal for those seeking multigenerational living. With the ample space on offer, generous garden and sought-after location, this property would make a great family home or countryside retreat.

Accessed from the front with a useful tiled porch providing ample space for muddy boots and coats, you head through to the initial entrance hall which will provide access to most of the principal reception rooms. Immediately in front of you is the stunning main living room, measuring approximately 27' in length, which offers huge amounts of character, views down the garden and an incredible stone fireplace. From here, a doorway leads through to one of the five bedrooms and has doors directly onto the garden, as well as a staircase that rises to a very handy mezzanine level and would be a perfect study area. To the left of the main entrance, the utility, shower room and main bedroom are found, situated away from the remaining three bedrooms, and so perfectly lending itself for flexible living arrangements, whilst off to the right the dining room, newly replaced kitchen and delightful second sitting room are found. The dining room provides plenty of space for formal dining and leads into the recently replaced kitchen, which has been stylishly fitted with a range of navy coloured wall, base and drawer units, furnished with copper handles and black appliances. White metro tiles complement the attractive finish. The second sitting room leads off from the kitchen and here you will find another beautiful original open fireplace, as well as a doorway that opens onto the rear garden and a staircase which provides access to three further double bedrooms and a modern, white bathroom suite, set over the first and second-floor accommodation.

Evercreech is a thriving village situated between Shepton Mallet and Castle Cary, with access from the A371. Bath and Bristol are easily accessible to the north and the A303 to London and the West of England is accessed either at Sparkford or Wincanton to the South. There is a mainline station in Castle Cary to London, Paddington. Local amenities include a post office and shop, hairdressers, pharmacy, doctors surgery, village pub and a local church.

Approached from the front with a gravelled parking area set to the front of the cottage. The garden to the rear is of a generous size and offers a lovely sunny, southerly aspect, whilst benefitting from an open aspect to the fields beyond. The garden has been largely laid to lawn and is enclosed by a combination of timber fencing and laurel hedgerow, whilst a flagstone patio abuts the main living room and provides a great space for al fresco dining in the warmer months, whilst enjoying the local wildlife and countryside views beyond the garden.
