Property SummaryQuarn Ashlar in Pilton is a single storey property, extremely spacious and light, offering flexible accommodation and in immaculate condition. The entrance hall leads firstly to a large, light filled dining room with windows overlooking the front lawn. The generous size of this room offers great flexibility and it is currently dual purpose with fitted shelving along one wall providing a home office. It also has potential to be a fourth bedroom, with conveniently located plumbing for an en-suite shower room in the adjoining boiler cupboard. On the other side of the hall is the kitchen, spacious and well designed, with easterly windows letting in the morning sunshine. Shaker style units in a pale stone colour with quartz work surfaces and splashbacks provide copious storage and workspace and a black Tecnik range cooker is a focal point. There is a breakfast bar to sit at, as well as a spot by the window for a table and chairs. A large internal window looks through to the conservatory. Steps lead down to a utility room with fitted cupboards and a sink and then through to a useful rear lobby with room for coats and boots. This in turn leads up to a large, airy conservatory, a perfect entertaining space, with lovely views of the garden and plenty of room for a large dining table. The lounge is a place to relax, with Karndean flooring and a Jetmaster open fire and sliding glass doors into the conservatory.
A corridor leads along to a guest shower room and three double bedrooms, as well as a large walk-in storage cupboard. All three bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and lovely outlooks over the garden. The generous master bedroom has mirrored wardrobes reflecting the view of the garden and double doors opening into an exceptional size en-suite bathroom. Sleek and modern, with a copious walk-in shower and freestanding bath, it has the feel of a luxurious hotel suite.
Iron gates open into a generous driveway with parking for several cars, leading to a large double garage with room for two cars as well as storage space. The drive is bordered by shrubs and a lawn, enclosed by a superbly manicured hedge. The large rear garden is beautifully kept, with deep, jam packed herbaceous borders and shrubs around a central lawn. A terrace offers the perfect setting for lunch outside while enjoying the lovely vista across the lawn. Stepping stones lead round to a lovingly tended and well ordered kitchen garden, with gravel pathways, fruit and vegetable beds, a greenhouse and a compost corner.
Pilton is a very sought after village. Notable for its pretty stone cottages and rolling hills and of course Glastonbury Festival (a bonus of living in the village is that you get free tickets).
A very active village, it has numerous clubs, a playgroup, a bus to a local primary school, very smart village hall (which hosts the Post Office) and a convenience store, playground, playing fields with clubhouse and a public house. There are many events throughout the year, but most notable is the very well attended September Pilton weekend including village flower show and fete, barn dance, tug of war, cricket match and ‘fun sports day’ (see www.piltonvillage.co.uk).
There are superstores, a supermarket and regular farmers market at nearby Shepton Mallet. Only 5 miles away is the beautiful historic Cathedral City of Wells which has regular markets, a Waitrose, plus two other supermarkets, plenty of coffee shops, restaurants, independent and national stores, plus all the amenities that you would expect from a small town. Twenty minutes away is the very fashionable small town of Bruton which has the very popular restaurant/coffee/bread shop called ‘At the Chapel’ and the world famous Hauser and Wirth Art Gallery.
Bristol and Bath and Frome are all within approximately an hours drive and a mainline station with trains to London Paddington, is situated less than 5 miles away at Castle Cary, with further mainline stations at Yeovil, Bristol and Bath. Bristol International Airport, which offers long-haul flights, is 16 miles away.
There is an excellent range of both state and independent schools in the area including Millfield, Wells Cathedral School, Blue School Wells, Strode College in Street, All Hallows, Downside, the Bruton Schools and numerous local primary schools. The local Primary school for Pilton is in West Pennard and a school bus transports the children there.
From the A361 towards Glastonbury, pass The Crown Inn, pass the right turning into Totterdown Lane, take the next right turn – Westholme Road. Quarn Ashlar will be found a short way up on the left hand side.
