No. 8 Chapel Yard is one of two, premium 2 bed bungalows situated in the centre of the pretty village of Babcary in Somerset. These properties are under construction and will be ready by Autumn 2019 . Each property has been constructed using blue lias stone and lime rendered elevations and slate tiles on the roof. The quality of the build both inside and out is particularly impressive and typical of this developer’s attention to detail.
The bungalow is set at the end of a shared drive and well back from the road that runs through the village. An attractive timber tiled porch leads to a hallway with a cloakroom and access to a magnificent double height living/dining room at the rear of the house. French doors open to a delightful terrace and the beautiful gardens that make the most of stunning views of the countryside beyond. Off the sitting room is a luxurious kitchen fully equipped with integrated Bosch appliances (that include a fridge freezer, dishwasher, oven and extraction unit), an induction hob and granite worktops.
An internal hall leads to two spacious bedrooms (one with en suite bathroom), and a second bathroom - both are well appointed with high end fixtures and fittings. There is also a utility cupboard for a washing machine and dryer.
The house is eco-friendly and built with anthracite grey Halo flush windows in PVC that require no maintenance, whilst the underfloor heating is powered via an air source heat pump.
The bungalow has gardens laid to lawn to the rear of the property and parking for two cars and landscaping to the front.
The property is ideally situated in the centre of Babcary, one of the most charming villages in Somerset. Village life is vibrant and there is a tangible sense of community spirit. It is well known for its excellent pub (The Red Lion), its playing fields with public tennis court and its 14th century Church. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and bordering the Sparkford Vale, the lack of through traffic allows for an unusually free environment for children to roam freely!
Local amenities include a convenience store and a petrol station 2 miles away and further retail therapy can be found in the nearby market towns of Somerton, Castle Cary and Sherborne
Transport links are excellent with Castle Cary’s mainline railway station just 15 minutes away, and the A37 providing easy access to Bristol and Bath. The A303 with direct access to London and the South West is a few minute’s drive.
Excellent local state and independent schools include; Keinton Mandeville Primary School, Ansford Academy, Strode College, Hazelgrove, Millfield, All Hallows Prep and The Bruton schools.
