Property SummaryA very spacious striking house set in a peaceful location with good sized attractive and private gardens with a detached self- contained annexe, swimming pool, orchard and views of fields at the foot of the Tor. Village feel but easy walking distance to High St.
A unique property set at the foot of Glastonbury Tor, but within easy walking distance of the High Street. This very light and spacious house is set in a peaceful location via a private track off Bove Town. The property comprises a large 5 bedroom house with a self -contained detached annexe and a swimming pool set within a very private garden with beautiful views across to hills and fields.
The most striking aspects of this property are the well-proportioned and light filled rooms and the attractive south facing garden, which leads directly out onto fields and the foot of Glastonbury Tor.
Since buying the property the current owners have undertaken an extensive refurbishment program including two brand new bathrooms and new boiler in October 2016. Other work included replacing the laminate flooring with oak, new windows, bespoke kitchen units and book shelving in the office, plus copious work on the garden.
The attractive garden, which is bounded by mature trees and hedges, is comprised of a decked area, two terraces, a fenced courtyard, a swimming pool level (which is very private), and a small orchard.
The self-contained detached annexe is an open plan sleeping/kitchen/sitting room with a separate shower room. This has large glazed windows and so is light filled and makes it an attractive source of extra accommodation or it could be used as a studio or an office.
Cordis Mundi is tucked away at the end of a private lane which is only a few minutes walk from the High Street. The house is approached via a timber field gate which leads onto a concrete courtyard flanked by the house, carport and studio annexe. The latter is reached from the driveway and so does not impact on the privacy of the gardens of the main house.
Glastonbury is a town that is steeped in history going back to the legends of King Arthur. There was a Celtic monastery here in 500AD, which during the next 1000years evolved into one of England’s wealthiest and influential Abbeys. The magnificent Glastonbury Abbey ruins and the famous Glastonbury Tor attract tourists to the town and so although small, it is a thriving town and it is well served by markets and a huge range of festivities. It is one of the few towns that has managed to shun many of the main chain stores whilst still providing all the necessary shops, restaurants, cafes, doctors, pharmacies, dentists, a wealth of clubs and sporting facilities and supermarkets.
There are excellent state and independent schools in the vicinity including Millfield, Wells Cathedral School, St Dunstans in Glastonbury, Blue School Wells, Strode College in Street, numerous local primary schools plus All Hallows and the Bruton Schools.
Glastonbury is about 9 miles from Castle Cary Railway Station, which has mainline rail service from Castle Cary to London (Paddington) in circa 2 hours. Bristol and Exeter Airports are both within about 1 hour’s drive offering connections around the UK, Europe and to other destinations.
Mains water, electricity gas and drainage.
From the top of the high Street continue across the intersection up “Bove Town’. Cordis Mundi is signposted on the right hand side just before the first right turn to Bushy Coombe Gardens. (It is behind 88 Bove Town).
