Property SummaryThis amazingly spacious four bedroom family house was built in 1989 and was cleverly designed by the current owners husband. The property is set within a very generous private plot at the end of a no through lane with lovely open views over green fields to the front - this is a great sized family home that has versatile accommodation that could be configured to include a small annexe. The house opens up from the entrance hall to the large principle double reception room with doors to the terrace and gardens with a natural stone centralised fireplace through to the dining area. This house has fabulous entertaining possibilities as there are further double doors to another large reception room currently housing an 8ft snooker table. In addition the hall leads to a downstairs cloakroom and study.
The spacious kitchen/breakfast room is light filled and looks over the large and private west facing garden. A door from the kitchen leads to a very large utility room (that could be part of an annexe subject to any required planning permissions) which has excellent storage and leads to a sun room currently used as a sewing room with doors to the garden. Also leading from the utility room is a hall and large second hobby room/workshop both with access to an extensive double garage.
Upstairs there is a master bedroom with large walk in dressing room and two “His and Her” bathrooms (one with shower, one with a bath with shower over). A further double bedroom with a “Jack and Jill” bathroom, two further large double bedrooms (one with masses of storage under the eaves) plus a family bathroom. There is also a generous airing cupboard.
Keinton Mandeville is a village in the South East of Somerset and lies midway between the market towns of Somerton to the West, and Castle Cary to the East. The origins of the village date back to the Roman times and its popularity grew both because of the local "Blue Lias" stone and being situated on the old coach route from London to the South West. The Church of St. Mary Magdalene dates from the 13th century. Today the village has a population of around 1,000 people and is served by "The Keinton Stores", there is also the local pub "The Quarry Inn".
Somerton is just a few minutes away which is a picturesque town, originally the county town of Somerset and before that, possibly the capital of Wessex. Its focal point is the wide 17th Century Market Square with a Buttercross in the centre. The parish church, dedicated to St. Michael, is quite plain externally but contains one of the finest wooden roofs in the county carved by the monks at Muchelney Abbey. Somerton offers all the usual amenities of a market town, bars/restaurants and has a small independent supermarket.
There are good transport links to London and the South west via the A303. Castle Cary railway station, just 6 miles away, offers an excellent direct rail service to London in less than two hours.
Further to the local amenities there are excellent facilities at the larger regional centres of Yeovil, Sherborne and Taunton all within easy motoring distance.
Many of the area's best known independent schools are within easy commuting distance including Millfield (10 mins), Kings Bruton, Bruton School for Girls, Wells Cathedral School, Downside, Hazelgrove and All Hallows. There is a local state primary school at Keinton Mandeville, plus state secondary school at Ansford and the very popular Sexeys School in Bruton.
Mains gas, water (metered), electricity and drainage, an air exchange system, a water bore hole for the garden and the Worcester boiler was installed in October 2018.
