Property SummarySituated in the south Somerset village of Keinton Mandeville Meadowview is a stunning example of a home where contemporary meets local tradition. Keinton blue lias stone has been highly sought after since the mid nineteenth century and it is from this stone that Meadowview has been built. The entrance hall is light and welcoming and from here there is access to a home office and downstairs cloakroom. Make your way through to the stunning open plan kitchen, dining and living room and it’s clear to see the quality and thought that has been lavished on this home. Tradition meets convenience with a black dual controlled four oven Aga featuring electric top plates and gas ovens. The bespoke kitchen units are striking, painted with Farrow and Ball ‘Downpipe’ contrasting with the double larder in Farrow and Ball ‘Strong White’ the counter tops are silestone quartz in cream. There is a supplementary oven and microwave and an island unit with a curved wrap around breakfast bar. Equally high specification is the wonderfully spacious utility room that leads off the kitchen. Here the units match the kitchen and there is a door out to the patio at the rear. The living room and dining area open off the kitchen where triple glazed bifold doors allow the outside to combine seamlessly with the inside. An award winning eco-friendly Hwam wood burning stove provides character and atmosphere complementing the underfloor gas fired heating that runs throughout the ground floor. The heating can be controlled remotely so you won’t ever have to return to a chilly home. The living area of this open plan scheme can also be accessed via a door from the entrance hall.
A stylish glass and American oak staircase lead to the first floor landing where to the left the master suite is situated. This is beautiful room over looks the rear garden through bifold doors that can effectively open up the back wall of the room to the outside. A Perspex safety shield is fitted here. Everything that would expect can be found here; a gorgeous en-suite bathroom, bespoke fitted wardrobes, varied lighting options and a well thought out partial height dividing wall between the bed and wardrobe area. Additionally on this floor is a front facing double bedroom with bespoke fitted wardrobes and a third bedroom currently set up as a twin but large enough to house a double bed; this room over looks the attractive rear garden and the meadow beyond. The stairs rise again to the second floor where there are two more double bedrooms fitted with skylights that automatically close if it starts to rain. A shower room serves these bedrooms and there are extensive under eaves storage options.
The front garden is low maintenance and complements the syle of the house perfectly. There is plenty of room for parking here or continuing on past the side of the house there is a superb large double garage served by electricity, water and drainage. Inside at the rear of the garage there are a range of units, a sink, room for a fridge and a loo. The rear westerly facing garden is low maintenance having been mainly laid to lawn with attractive planting adding colour and structure. Adjoining as it does a meadow at the rear the garden has a spacious and open feel. Attached to the garage at the rear there is a wonderful bespoke oak framed outdoor entertaining and barbeque area.
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 including the fabulous new 28 Market Place as well as the popular White Heart and has a small independent supermarket. Many of the area's best known independent schools are within easy commuting distance including Millfield (10 mins), 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.
