Property SummaryAs with many properties in Bruton, the outside does not give much of a hint of the stunning house that lies inside. This property has been refurbished in recent years and is now worthy of a feature in a style magazine.
Originally built in 1686, the property is also known as Maypole Cottage due to the fact that in 1798 it was the Maypole Inn.
The two reception rooms have been made semi-open plan with a wood burner on both sides of the old chimney breast each set in attractive fireplaces . There is lots of wood flooring in the house, with original floors upstairs and new wide oak boards in the sitting room and older oak in the kitchen, plus attractive tiled floors in the bathrooms. There are good ceiling heights throughout and the windows are double glazed.
The kitchen/ breakfast room which is light and overlooks the garden has a wooden floor, belfast sink, freestanding units and door to the garden. Under the stairs is a useful storage area and there is a downstairs WC. The boiler is brand new.
On the first floor, the master bedroom has original wood flooring, and leads to a generous en suite with a bath and separate shower and a very pretty tiled floor. Also on the first floor is one further double bedroom and family bathroom with roll top bath. On the second floor there are two more doubles with pretty views over the walled garden, roof tops in Bruton and to Alfreds Tower and the hills beyond.
The car port could fit a very small car but is currently used as a very useful covered area linking the house to the garden.
The garden is particularly charming with a good sized terraced area leading to a raised lawn within a high stones wall which really makes this garden feel very private. A real bonus with this house is the the very pretty stone outbuilding with pitch slate roof. This building which has two storeys is currently used as storage, but it has a staircase and it wouldn't take too much work to turn this into an office or further accommodation.
Bruton is a fashionable and popular town in the heart of the Somerset countryside. The town has several well-known restaurants, pubs and bars including “At the Chapel” and “The Roth Bar” at the world-renowned Hauser & Wirth Gallery. The town also has a doctors surgery, pharmacy, vet, post office, several mini supermarkets, fuel station and numerous independent shops.
There are excellent local independent schools include King’s School Bruton, Bruton School for Girls and also the state owned boarding school - Sexey's. Bruton has it's own primary school and in close proximity are Millfield, Hazelgrove and All Hallows prep schools.
For further shopping and recreational activities, Bath, Bristol, Wells and Yeovil are all within an hour’s drive. The A303 provides a direct route to London via the M3 and there is a mainline rail service from Bruton to London Paddington (approx. 2 hours) and also the new train to Waterloo. Airports in Bristol and Exeter offer connections within the UK, Europe and beyond.
