Situated on the edge of the popular Somerset town of Bruton, the property has been extended to the rear, creating a large living space, whilst still maintaining a substantial garden. The property also enjoys views towards King Alfred's Tower and has further potential to extend as the loft has been partially converted.
Bruton is a vibrant Somerset town nestling in the foothills of the Brue Valley, surrounded by unspoilt countryside and is well renowned for its schools, artistic community and such notable restaurants as At The Chapel and The Roth Bar and Grill. The town has retained a charming character over centuries of changes from pre-Domesday to the present and is steeped in history. On nearby Creech Hill and Lamyatt Beacon there are recorded Celtic, Roman and Dark Age sites. The church of St. Mary originated in Saxon times. The Dovecote, the long buttressed wall in the street called Plox and parts of King’s school remain today as visible reminders of the Abbey. The Hauser & Wirth art gallery is situated towards the edge of the town and offers innovative exhibitions of contemporary art as well as educational programmes. On the outskirts of the neighbouring town Wincanton, the racecourse is the local home of National Hunt racing and golf courses are located at Sherborne, Wincanton and Wheathill. Bruton has a range of facilities including supermarkets, post office, health centre, dentist, library, schools, inns, churches, restaurants, takeaways and a railway halt. There is a mainline railway station at nearby Castle Cary with services to London Paddington and road links to the A303 and A37 are also close at hand. A range of additional facilities such as larger shops and banks can be found at the surrounding towns of Wincanton, Castle Cary and Frome while Bath, Bristol and Yeovil are all within 1 hour’s drive.
