Willow Lodge offers everything you need to enjoy a relaxed , modern lifestyle. This contemporary home has been recently re-designed to add additional living, bedroom and bathroom space which is currently very desirable. This is a wonderfully light and private home in a traditional Somerset hamlet, yet also within easy reach of convenient transport links making it a great home for someone who works and travels further afield but wishes to return to a home in the countryside.
The original part of the building is of a more traditional design, but with the recent addition of two contemporary wings and a bright, light hallway with bi-fold doors and windows high in the apex. This home has been completely transformed to create a welcoming, modern living space. The glass doors in the corridor, living area and master bedroom have given the property a light, fresh feel as they allow a seamless transition from inside to outside, especially as the interior floor tiles mirror those of the courtyard patio.
The traditional entrance of the property is through the enclosed front garden. The front door leads into a large, welcoming space which is used by the current owners as a formal dining area and is also home to the family piano! This space opens into the light, bright hallway with bi-fold doors which lead out onto the courtyard patio and garden beyond.
Currently the utility room entrance is the most frequently used entrance as it opens out onto the patio and spacious gravel driveway. The utility room is a great practical space and contains floor to ceiling cupboards providing a wealth of storage including housing for a washing machine and tumble dryer as well as a Belfast sink.
A door separates the utility from the spacious open plan kitchen and living area, which helps to keep the “engine room” of the house out of view. This is a truly great space for family living and entertaining as the well-equipped, attractive fitted kitchen flows naturally into the bright, light seating area. This is a great, flexible area for relaxing at any time of the day, and in any season! Seating can be arranged to capitalise on the gorgeous views out to the garden and also to benefit from the warmth emitting from the Contura multi fuel burner. The high ceiling with exposed beams adds character and enhance the feeling of space and light.
The kitchen units are designed and fitted in a u-shape with a picture window over the sink, and in one corner there is an attractive corner seat with obscured glass to allow light to flood in. A large island in the centre of the kitchen provides additional work and storage space as well a breakfast bar and seating area.
The utility room, kitchen and living space all have underfloor heating, as does the hallway leading to the bedrooms which all have their own lovely, tiled en-suite bathrooms or wet rooms which means that each bedroom has its own private facilities. The first bedroom is currently used as a snug/ television room and leads off the main entrance/dining area. This room has an en-suite shower room and separate WC and a window which overlooks the garden at the front of the house - it could easily be used as an almost self-contained unit because of its position near the front door and the kitchen.
With views over the front of the house, the second and third bedrooms both come with en-suite bathrooms. The master bedroom has a spacious, fully tiled en-suite bathroom and super walk-in wardrobe area. Full length bi-fold doors open out to the courtyard patio giving a great view for sunny summer mornings and evenings.
Willow Lodge sits in an elevated position in a corner plot. To the front and side is an enclosed, lawned garden with steps down to the lane. At the rear of the plot is vehicular access over a gravel driveway and a lovely, large expanse of flat lawn, bordered with flower beds. Between the lawn and the house is a large paved courtyard area which acts as an extension to the property as it is a lovely seating and dining area for warmer weather.
Tucked away in the corner of the plot is a useful outbuilding/garage which could easily be used as a gym or outside office.
Cary Fitzpaine is an attractive hamlet close to the fashionable market town of “Castle Cary” and on the outskirts of Babcary, one of the most charming villages in Somerset.

It is well known for its excellent pub (The Red Lion), its playing fields with public tennis court and its 14th century Church. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and bordering the Sparkford Vale, the lack of through traffic allows for an unusually free environment for children to roam freely!
