Property description

A unique opportunity to acquire this generously proportioned and newly renovated detached 3/4 bedroom chalet style house in a rural setting with countryside views.
Situated towards the edge of the sought-after village of Pen Selwood, the property was renovated in 2016, including rewiring, replastering, installation of a new central heating system, installation of new windows, bathrooms and kitchen, together with full decoration throughout. The property provides highly flexible accommodation, with two ground floor bedrooms and 1/2 first floor bedrooms. The gardens are well-proportioned and the surrounding open land provides far-reaching views.

Pen Selwood has a thriving village community and is situated in an elevated position within an area of outstanding natural beauty, bordering the three counties of Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire. The area is of considerable historical interest. Pen Selwood is the start of the Leland Trail (running 28 miles from King Alfred's Tower to Ham Hill Country Park) and just outside the village is the site of the mediaeval motte and bailey castle known as 'Ballands Castle'. Stourhead House is also to be found nearby.

The nearby towns of Gillingham and Wincanton provide a useful range of services to cater for most everyday needs whilst nearby Zeals and Bourton both have a pub, garage, primary school, church, village shop and post offices. The area is renowned for excellent schools, such as Port Regis near Shaftesbury, Kings Bruton, Sherborne schools and nearby Gillingham School. Gillingham and Castle Cary provide main line services to London Waterloo and Paddington and the A303 provides good road access to London and the South West.

There are external power points, external lighting and externally mounted Worcester oil-fired boiler, outside tap and pathways to either side of the property.
