Property SummaryThis fabulous four bedroom house is situated in the extremely popular village of Butleigh close to Millfield School and backing onto open fields with great views of Glastonbury Tor.
Tucked away at the end of this quiet cul-de-sac in arguably the nicest situation on this small exclusive development, number 3, although already a family size home, also offers the new owners the opportunity to extend to create a larger kitchen/breakfast room and further accommodation. It is light and bright with four good bedrooms, two bathrooms (one en-suite) and a lovely sitting room with doors to the garden, a separate dining room, study, downstairs loo and utility room also with door to the garden. The garden is beautifully planted with separate sitting areas for taking in the evening sun, as well as a shady area for alfresco eating. One of the best features of this property are the fabulous views over the fields and mature trees and even a view of Glastonbury Tor. The plot is approximately 1/3 acre with a double garage and plenty of parking.
Butleigh is surrounded by rural countryside, farmland and wooded hills. This popular village has a thriving shop and post office, an excellent pub, primary school and nursery and a very active cricket club as well as the “Drawing Room” tea room/café. Recently there has been a “Heritage Trail” retelling the history of the old properties within the village and all the stories that they have to offer.
For shopping, “Clark’s village” in Street offers a wealth of retail opportunities with more shopping and local amenities to be found in nearby Glastonbury, Somerton, Wells and Castle Cary. For further shopping and recreational activities, Bath, Bristol, Wells and Yeovil are all within about an hour’s drive. The A303 that runs south of Butleigh offers direct road links to London and the South west.
There are good rail transport links to London from Castle Cary railway station, (just about 20 mins drive), which offers an excellent direct rail service to London Paddington in less than two hours. Also, Airports in Bristol and Exeter offer connections within the UK, Europe and beyond.
Glastonbury is a town that is steeped in history going back to the legends of King Arthur. There was a Celtic monastery here in 500AD, which during the next 1000 years evolved into one of England’s wealthiest and influential Abbeys. The magnificent Glastonbury Abbey ruins and the famous Glastonbury Tor attract tourists to the town and so although small, it is a thriving town and it is well served by markets and a huge range of festivities. It is one of the few towns that has managed to shun many of the main chain stores whilst still providing all the necessary shops, restaurants, cafes, doctors, pharmacies, dentists, a wealth of clubs and sporting facilities and supermarkets.
Local independent schools include Millfield (which is very close), Wells Cathedral School, All Hallows and Hazlegrove prep schools and the various Bruton schools. State schools include St. Dunstan’s, Wells Blue and nearby Strode College
Services – mains gas, electricity, water and drainage as well as PV panels.
Tenure – Freehold
Directions - BA6 8RX – As you enter the village on “High Street” just past the shop/post office turn onto “Baltonsborough Road” and Moundson Close is on the left. Number 3 is located at the end of the cul-de-sac.
