Property SummaryCherry Tree Cottage
A lovely newly refurbished cottage, that has been thoughtfully updated by the present owner. Built from Blue Lias stone with painted windows Cherry Tree Cottage is well located in this convenient and pretty village.
Since purchasing the cottage the vendor has in addition to redecorating, fully insulated the loft and roof space, installed a new kitchen and boiler. The kitchen is well fitted with a range of floor and wall units, integrated dishwasher and space for a washing machine, large American style fridge and Stoves Dual Fuel Range Cooker.
Cherry Tree Cottage has a lovely cosy feel to it and would suit someone looking to downsize or perhaps wanting a bolt hole or rental property in the area especially as it is very convenient for Millfield School
The accommodation flows well with a good sized sitting room with space at one end for a dining table, there is a pretty fireplace fitted with a log burner and windows overlooking the garden. Also on the ground floor is the well fitted kitchen with double doors out to the front and a study which could be made into a utility room/cloakroom or possibly a third bedroom.
Upstairs are two good sized bedrooms and the bathroom with bath/shower over and tiled floor.
Subject to planning permission there may be the possibility of extending the first floor to provide another bedroom and bathroom.
The garden is enclosed by a newly erected wooden fence and mainly laid to grass with gravel pathways. There is useful storage shed and bin area along with a log store as well as a tucked away area for further storage and off road parking for two cars (one along a shared driveway).
Keinton Mandeville is a village in the South East of Somerset and lies midway between the market towns of Somerton to the West, and Castle Cary to the East. The origins of the village date back to the Roman times and its popularity grew both because of the local "Blue Lias" stone and being situated on the old coach route from London to the South West. The Church of St. Mary Magdalene dates from the 13th century. Today the village has a population of around 1,000 people and is served by "The Keinton Stores", there is also the local pub "The Quarry Inn".
Somerton is just a few minutes away which is a picturesque town, originally the county town of Somerset and before that, possibly the capital of Wessex. Its focal point is the wide 17th Century Market Square with a Buttercross in the centre. The parish church, dedicated to St. Michael, is quite plain externally but contains one of the finest wooden roofs in the county carved by the monks at Muchelney Abbey. Somerton offers all the usual amenities of a market town, bars/restaurants and has a small independent supermarket.
There are good transport links to London and the South west via the A303. Castle Cary railway station, just 6 miles away, offers an excellent direct rail service to London in less than two hours.
Further to the local amenities there are excellent facilities at the larger regional centres of Yeovil, Sherborne and Taunton all within easy motoring distance.
Many of the area's best known independent schools are within easy commuting distance including Millfield, Kings Bruton, Bruton School for Girls, Wells Cathedral School, Downside, Hazelgrove and All Hallows. There is a local state primary school at Keinton Mandeville, plus state secondary school at Ansford and the very popular Sexeys School in Bruton.
Mains water, gas and electricity, drainage.
