St Davids Place is a hidden quiet oasis in the midst of bustling Bruton; a row of pretty terraced cottages built in the 1800s, accessed through an archway, along a footpath with a patchwork of gardens opposite. There is no vehicular access here so it is very peaceful and a rather special location. No 6 is a delightful period cottage with thick stone walls and deep windowsills, original flagstones, beams and turned wooden staircase. It has been modernised, with a modern kitchen and bathroom and double glazing throughout. From the rear, there are charming views across to St Mary’s Church, the Dovecot and the hills beyond.
The front door opens into the sitting room. This is a spacious room with its original flagstone floor, windows to both the front and rear and a stone fireplace with wood burner. Through a doorway is the kitchen, which has a modern industrial feel. A slate floor sets off deep coloured cupboards, made from recycled plastic, providing plenty of kitchen storage and housing an integrated fridge/freezer and combi-boiler. A stainless steel Smeg cooker completes the look.
Stairs from the sitting room lead up to the first floor landing where a big, deep silled window gives lots of light. Traditional board and ledge latch doors lead from the landing to a double bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom has an original pretty cast iron fireplace and two windows to the rear with views of the Church. The bathroom has modern fittings, with aquabord panelling and a rain shower head over the bath, and a decorative opaque glass internal window from the landing.
The second staircase leads up to an attic room used as sleeping quarters with a double bed in situ. This is a cosy room with pretty painted ceiling beams and a little nook exposing some original stonework. There are two Velux windows, one of which is at the perfect height for taking in the view of the Church and the Dovecot from your bed. This room does not have official building regulations so cannot be officially marketed as a second bedroom.
Along the footpath is a gate which leads into a lovely enclosed detached garden with an old stone wall at the bottom, a lawn and pretty planting. There are two areas of decking, one of them covered, with a log store, and each has plenty of room for seating.
There is also a useful outhouse, at the end of the footpath, with room for bikes and garden tools.
Bruton is a fashionable and popular town in the heart of the Somerset countryside. There are several well-known restaurants, pubs and bars including "At the Chapel" and "The Roth Bar" at the well known Hauser and Wirth Art Gallery. The country estate 'The Newt' is an approximately fifteen-minute drive away, with wonderful gardens, woodlands, restaurants, shops and a cider press - this a new and exciting addition to the area which will be wonderful for locals to visit all year round. The town also has a doctors surgery, pharmacy, vet, post office, several mini supermarkets, fuel station and numerous independent shops.
Further shopping and recreational actives can be found in Frome, a 20 minute drive, with wonderful artisan markets and a plethora of restaurants and boutiques.
The larger Cities of Bath, Bristol, Wells and Yeovil are all within an hours drive. The A303 provides a direct route to London via the M3 and there is a mainline rail service from Bruton to Waterloo and Castle Cary direct to Paddington (approx. 2 hours) and also the new train to Waterloo. Airports in Bristol and Exeter offer connections within the UK, Europe and beyond.
Approaching from the western side of Bruton on the one-way system on the A359, enter the high street, continue to the end and you will reach a curved T-junction. Turn immediately left and you are in Coombe Street. On the righthand side is a row of terraced cottages and then an open archway which is St Davids Place. This can only be accessed on foot. Number 6 is marked.
