Property SummaryThis is a great opportunity to live in a listed period property in the middle of an historic market town. 17 Great Ostry is one of seven houses that was built in circa 1650 in this style originally two dwellings that were later amalgamated. With nicely detailed stone mullion windows, inglenook fireplace with wood burner, exposed beams, wooden flooring and a pretty courtyard garden - this really is a fabulous property.
This pretty house is approached across the gated gravelled driveway which leads to the private courtyard garden and the garage/outbuilding that could be converted for other use such as an office or workshop (planning permission granted).
From the entrance hall on one side there is a large kitchen breakfast room with recently fitted painted units, with exposed beams and stone work as well as a fabulous walk in pantry. On the other side of the hall is a generous sized sitting room with pretty alcove cupboards and a large inglenook fireplace fitted with a cosy wood burner. From here you lead on through to a tiled shower room with loo, a useful utility room and on again to what could be a study/fourth bedroom with separate loo. This room can be accessed from the courtyard so could be a used as a work office or downstairs bedroom.
On the first floor there are two large double bedrooms with useful cupboards and a pretty fireplace both overlooking the gravelled driveway. A further third bedroom with painted floors located on the top floor with great cupboards and feeling of space and light as well as a bathroom.
This lovely home is tucked away down a lane right in the centre of the understated but constantly evolving and up and coming town of Shepton Mallet.
