Property SummaryA rare opportunity to purchase a spacious and very well-presented family home on a large secluded plot in the popular village of Alhampton. The property is marketed with NO ONWARD CHAIN.
Avon House is a spacious, detached five bedroom house situated in the popular village of Alhampton which has been home to the current owners for over thirty years. The property has been well-maintained and totally updated over the last 10 years using high-quality fixtures and fittings, and includes double glazed windows throughout, modern boiler and cavity wall insulation.
The house is entered via a glazed porch leading into the hallway from which the sitting room, kitchen, utility and a downstairs loo can be accessed. The impressive, spacious, sitting room is naturally lit via two picture windows overlooking the front south facing garden. A glass panelled door leads into another generous reception, currently used as a dining room, with double-glazed sliding doors leading out to the garden. The kitchen is an attractive, sleek design with walnut effect work surfaces, Karndean flooring and equipped with integral Neff appliances. The peninsular island with seating is perfect for enjoying the views overlooking the back garden. A utility room and a striking, newly built rear porch, complete the accommodation on the ground floor.
Upstairs there are five double bedrooms, three of which have built-in wardrobes, a large family bathroom with a thermostatic power shower, bath, loo and washbasin and an airing cupboard. The master bedroom overlooking the rear garden, has a dressing area with wall to wall fitted wardrobes and a spacious en-suite. A large quadrant shower enclosure with thermostatic power shower, high quality fitted units, Karndean flooring and stone tiles create a feeling of luxury.
The attractive, secluded, garden which backs onto a private wooded area has been lovingly maintained and contains an attractive mixture of lawn and mature trees with flower and vegetable beds. There are two wooden sheds for storage and a greenhouse. A paved area serves as an outside seating and dining area and has been the setting for numerous parties over the years.
The garage can be entered either from the front of the property or from the rear porch and is a great space for extra storage.
Alhampton is a small village with its own pub, the Alhampton Inn. The neighbouring village of Ditcheat is widely known as home to Paul Nicholls’s racing stables and Barbers farmhouse cheese. It has a good farm shop, an excellent primary school and The Manor Inn pub. Transport links are superb with Castle Cary’s mainline railway station to London and the South West just few minutes drive away. Local shopping can be found in Castle Cary, Bruton (home to the now famous Hauser and Wirth gallery and “At the Chapel” restaurant), Shepton Mallet and Wincanton. A new country club, The Emily Estate near Wincanton, is due to open next year which will be a fabulous addition to the area. Local independent prep schools include All Hallows and Hazelgrove. Secondary include Millfield, Sunny Hill Girls school and Kings Bruton. Excellent state schools include Ansford Academy, Sexeys Bruton and the Blue school in Wells.
