Property SummaryLyndhurst is a fabulous family home, a mere five minute walk from the fashionable town of Bruton. This enviable property, dating back to 1899, once served as a vicarage and retains many original features.
A stunning cast iron and glass verandah, with its “Steel Foundry” crest still intact, perfectly enhances the property and provides the idyllic spot to sit and enjoy the feature fountain. The impressive front door, with its stained glass panelling and original door-bell, opens into a splendid hallway to reveal the marvellous Victorian floor tiles distinguished by its typical colours and geometric patterns. Two reception rooms flank the entrance hall and are both flooded with natural light due to large picture sash windows and french doors. Each with period fireplaces and original cornicing the overall feeling of space is increased by the classic high ceilings belonging to the period.
The hallway continues through to the kitchen/breakfast room beautifully fitted with shaker style units topped with Norwegian granite work surfaces. A utility room is conveniently located adjacent to the kitchen with access to the outside courtyard. A further reception room, currently used as a study, links into a sizeable conservatory overlooking the beautiful garden beyond.
