Property SummaryA very desirable detached house in the popular village of Pilton.
Beautiful setting with the south facing views of an apple orchard (best viewed from verandah), whilst to the rear is the pretty garden with a brook.
This light filled and spacious house has been finished to a high standard including a very attractive cottage style kitchen with an AGA cooker and in the sitting room there is an AGA wood burner set in a beautiful fireplace from Wells reclamation yard.
The house has been carefully designed to make the most of the lovely views. The kitchen has a large window and glazed seating area that look out onto the very picturesque rear garden that has a brook running through it with a bridge over to the field opposite (owner by local farmer ).
The layout of the house is such that the kitchen is at the heart of the house and this leads to the large conservatory that takes in all the views. The very attractive sitting room has views to the orchard and also downstairs are two double bedrooms and family bathroom. Upstairs there is a very spacious landing, two double bedrooms and family size shower room. With planning permission it may be possible to make further accommodation in the loft.
Outside there is a very good studio that was converted from a garage . It as power, lighting, carpet, tv point and a window and is a properly useable room.
There is plenty of space in the garden to erect another garage. To the side of the house by the studio is parking for ample cars.
The garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and the house sits well in it plot with land all around set back behind a stone wall.
The field on the other side of the brook is in a designated AREA OF OUTSTANDING NATURAL BEAUTY!
Professional photos and the floor plan will be available next week.
Weavers Bridge is in the main part of the village, but it has plenty of space around it and is in a quiet location.
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), 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.
