Property Summary

Rope House is a two bedroomed semi-detached home conveniently tucked away in a peaceful setting in the heart of the ancient town of Castle Cary. This attractive property, built in 2010, is in immaculate order throughout and perfectly located within a minutes’ stroll into the delightful high street brimming with its historical architecture. Constructed from the traditional local stone, renowned for its golden hues, the house is further complemented with feature windows and oak lintels creating a unique and characterful home.

Rope House is entered through large panel glazed doors leading into a reception hall and on into an open plan kitchen diner with underfloor heating through the downstairs. Shaker style units topped with wooden surfaces create a simple but stylish décor with built in appliances and plenty of room for a dining table and chairs. A naturally light and bright sitting room offers plenty of space with oak flooring and French doors leading out to the front of the property.

Upstairs the accommodation includes two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom has an impressive double vaulted ceiling with exposed oak beams overhead, sizeable fitted wardrobes and a sleek modern en-suite. The second bedroom also has featured woodwork overlooks the surrounding rooftops and is conveniently situated adjacent to an excellent sized family bathroom.


This small pretty enclave of properties can be found down a little, no through road, leading from Bailey Hill. Rope House is enhanced by attractive borders and is approached via its own little pathway with room for a seating area. To the side of the property, behind a wrought iron gate, is a pretty walled courtyard with further space for outside dining. The property offers its own private parking which is rare within this popular town.
