Property description

High Street, West Lydford

Property Description: This immaculate property comes to the market in excellent condition. Located off the High Street in this quiet village, it has a bright hallway upon entering the property with a storage cupboard under the stairs. Built in the early 1970s, it has a modern white fitted kitchen with central island and fashionable open plan living throughout. To the front of the property with its double aspect is the elegant living room and its stunning wood burner for those colder nights, flowing through to a sitting room and conservatory overlooking the rear garden. This wonderful family home is neutrally decorated and has wood effect flooring throughout the ground floor. The house also benefits from a utility room, cloakroom and rear hallway which also takes you out to the large rear garden. To the first floor there are three double bedrooms, and a large family bathroom with a fresh white suite, complete with separate shower, bath and heated towel rail. A great space with huge potential; the existing owners have begun to investigate options to create a fourth bedroom and bathroom with existing utilities in place to achieve this.

Outside: The property is situated in the centre of the south east facing plot, with a detached garage and horseshoe drive providing easy in and out access for vehicles. In addition to the garage, there is plenty of off road private parking. The garden, around a third of an acre, is well established and mainly laid to lawn with mature trees, shrubs and borders. There is a large shed to the rear of the garage and a gazebo where you can enjoy a peaceful moment. You will find different seating areas arranged throughout the garden to make the most of the sun and alfresco dining opportunities and there is a large paved terrace that can be accessed from the back hallway.

Location: West Lydford is a fabulous small village, within the parish of Lyford on Fosse. The village primarily runs along a road called the High Street and is home to a beautiful stretch of flower lined water on the River Brue famous for its wild swimming. It is situated west of Castle Cary (5 miles) and north of Somerton (6 miles), with immediate access to the A37 and Yeovil and Shepton Mallet. Lydford-on-Fosse, only a short drive on the A37, has a church, general store, public house, and petrol station. The Wheathill Golf Club is also within a mile of your doorstep. The larger village of Keinton Mandeville (approx one mile away) has a highly regarded primary school, whilst state secondary school options include Ansford Academy at Castle Cary, Crispin School Academy at Street or the Huish Episcopi Academy in Langport, as well as independent schools including All Hallows, Hazelgrove and Millfield. There are larger supermarkets and shopping facilities within a 15 minute drive in the towns of Street, Glastonbury and Shepton Mallet. A variety of dining experiences are available in the locality including the Cross Keys in Lydford, Red Lion at Babcary, The White Hart in Somerton plus Roth Bar and At the Chapel in Bruton. The restaurant Twenty Eight with its London vibe is a must see located in Somerton. The cities of Bath, Bristol and Wells are all within easy driving distance as is the fashionable area of Bruton. The nearest rail links can be found at Castle Cary (5 miles) offering a fast route to London Paddington and Yeovil (15 miles) for London Waterloo.
