This is an extraordinary opportunity to purchase and renovate an historical grade II listed cottage dating back to the 18th Century and located in the heart of the desirable village of North Cadbury.
Constructed from local cut and squared Lias stone, with thatched roof recently refurbished, this is an exciting project with potential for extension subject to planning and listed building consent. Currently the downstairs offers a large sitting room/dining room, kitchen and downstairs shower room with access into the back garden.
Upstairs are three bedrooms and access to a large attic space with window.
To the side of the property is space for off-road parking for two vehicles; a good sized back garden is laid to lawn and planted with mature trees and shrubs.
North Cadbury is a pretty, sought after village in the countryside of South Somerset with a wonderful community spirit centred around a primary school, 15th century parish church, village hall and a local pub. A short walk from the cottage is North Cadbury Court famous for its ‘Montgomery’ cheddar cheese. The bustling market town of Castle Cary is 3 miles south with many attractive and historic buildings including its 19th century Market house and the 18th century Roundhouse. The main street offers an assortment of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and delicatessens. Market day falls on a Tuesday where fish, organic vegetables and homemade breads are sold on the cobbles in front of the Market House. ‘The Newt in Somerset’ has recently opened nearby. A recent article in the Telegraph quoted “The Newt is one of the most exceptional country house hotels Britain has seen”. The gardens are open to the public and visitors are welcome to walk through amazing woodland gardens and to dine in the restaurants and cafes.
Large supermarkets are located in the towns of Wincanton and Shepton Mallet which are both a short drive away and the fashionable town of Bruton is also very close by. Bruton is a popular town in the heart of the Somerset countryside. It 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 doctor’s surgery, pharmacy, vet, post office, several mini supermarkets, fuel station and numerous independent shops. For further shopping and recreational activities Frome, Bath, Bristol, Salisbury, Wells, Sherborne and the Dorset coast are all within easy driving distance.
North Cadbury Primary school is within walking distance, with Ansford Secondary school situated in Castle Cary. There are excellent local independent schools nearby including Millfield School, King’s School Bruton, Bruton School for Girls and also the State owned boarding school - Sexey's.
The nearby A303 provides a direct route to London via the M3 and there is a mainline rail service from Castle Cary to London Paddington (under 2 hours). Airports in Bristol and Exeter offer connections within the UK, Europe and beyond.
