Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
An attractive and well-proportioned 18th century detached cottage, pleasantly situated in an idyllic position with beautiful rural views. Available with no onward chain, this light and airy property includes four bedrooms, three reception rooms, surrounding gardens, ample parking and a detached double garage. Transport links such as the A37, A303 and the mainline station at Castle Cary are all within easy reach. EPC rating E.

The property is accessible to the side, with a door opening into an inner hall, which has a double glazed leaded light window (continued throughout) to the front, a door into the downstairs WC and a glazed door through to the main hall. Incorporating the staircase to the first floor accommodation, with a storage cupboard beneath, the hall has a panel window to the rear and doors to the kitchen and sitting room. Fitted with a range of matching floor and wall units, the dual-aspect kitchen offers space for a breakfast table and includes an integrated electric oven, hob, under-the-counter fridge and a washing machine. In addition, there is a ceramic one-and-a-half drainer sink unit with mixer taps and a door from the kitchen opening into the dining room. The sitting room, also dual-aspect with two windows on each side, has exposed beams, a central fireplace with an inset wood-burning stove and a further door into the adjoining dining room. A particularly spacious reception room, the dining room can comfortably accommodate a good-sized table and chairs and continues through to the living room. Forming part of a double-storey extension in 2011, the living room is a bright and welcoming room, with windows on three sides and a set of double glazed patio doors, taking in an impressive outlook across the garden, neighbouring agricultural land and beyond.

On the first floor, a split level landing with a window to the rear gives access to all rooms. The views from this level of the property are superb. The master bedroom is located in the extended section of the house, above the living room, and offers a fabulous triple-aspect double room. The master also benefits from a modern en-suite shower room, fitted with a matching white suite comprising a double shower cubicle, a low level WC, a pedestal wash hand basin and a heated towel rail. There are two further double bedrooms, as well as a generous single with a built-in double wardrobe. Completing the accommodation is a finely-proportioned family bathroom, also fitted with a white suite including a bath and a separate shower. The property has been neutrally decorated throughout, providing a buyer with a light and well-presented house that can be altered to suit different tastes if desired. Furthermore, the vendors have recently installed a brand new water treatment plant (private drainage system), which we understand comes with a 20-year guarantee. As the property is now available with no onward chain, our clients can accommodate a sale in good time.

The property is situated within the favoured hamlet of Parbrook, which comprises a variety of quality period and modern homes. Parbrook is well placed for road access to various towns including Glastonbury, Wells, Shepton Mallet, Street and Castle Cary, all offering an extensive range of shops, amenities and facilities. The nearest village primary schools are only a short distance away, in the villages of Baltonsborough and West Pennard, and there is a good selection of secondary schooling, both state and independent. Parbrook is particularly well located for Millfield junior and senior schools. For those needing commuter facilities, there is a mainline train station at nearby Castle Cary for the direct line to London Paddington and there are excellent road links via the A303 to the south. There is also an excellent shop in Baltonsborough for all your daily needs.

On the southern side of the plot, the cottage has private driveway parking for several vehicles, laid to stone chippings. Within this area is a detached double garage, which has two 'up and over' doors, light and power. A gate beyond the garage then opens into the side garden, which is south-facing and laid to lawn combining a small orchard with a variety of fruit trees. The established gardens, bordered by hedging, then continue to wrap around the rear and opposite side of the house, with the enviable backdrop of the neighbouring countryside behind; a real haven for wildlife.

The rear garden is well-tended with pathways leading through pretty pergolas planted with climbing roses and clematis. A raised patio terrace provides an ideal area for outdoor seating and entertaining. Furthermore, within one corner of the garden is a small but useful garden room with power and light, currently used as an art studio, but could be a home office or hobby space.
