Wellesley Green is a no-through road of substantial detached houses within easy walking distance of Bruton high street and the schools. No 1 enjoys a secluded position tucked away in the corner, surrounded by mature trees and hedges. This family home offers exceptional space, with large reception rooms offering flexible accommodation. There is great potential for some reconfiguration and updating to make a stylish, modern family home. Wide, double glazed windows throughout the house let the natural light flood in, and the flow of large rooms works well around a central entrance hall. The sitting room is dual aspect, with patio doors opening into a conservatory, and a gas fire as the focal point. Another room could be a snug or home-office, or could be incorporated into the kitchen. The large kitchen has fitted units, a central island and plenty of room for a large table and chairs. French doors lead out to a covered deck - a shady spot for al-fresco lunches. A further reception room provides an exceptional space, most recently used as a bedroom, with generous built-in cupboards. There is a ground floor shower room and a walk-in cupboard with plumbing for a washing machine. A very spacious conservatory runs along the back of the house presenting yet more living space or the potential to extend into the existing footprint.
Upstairs, an airy landing leads to a family bathroom and four bedrooms. Three are double and one a generous single, all very light and all with built-in cupboard space.
Iron gates open into a tarmac driveway with ample parking for several cars. An integrated garage provides space for one car. A pathway to the side of the garage leads round to an enormous deck, sheltered by tall trees, with a covered dining area by the kitchen. A lawn at the rear of the house is enclosed by trees, hedging and fencing and a side gate leads through to the front.
Bruton is a fashionable and popular town in the heart of the Somerset countryside. The town has several well-known restaurants, pubs and bars including “At the Chapel” and “The Roth Bar” at the world-renowned Hauser & Wirth Gallery. An exciting addition to the high street is the restaurant "Osip" recently opened and run by a Michelin starred chef. The town also has a doctors surgery, pharmacy, vet, post office, several mini supermarkets, fuel station and numerous independent shops. Bruton is only 5 minute-drive from the very pretty town of Castle Cary which has a mainline railway station and the new hotel and restaurant The Newt (https://thenewtinsomerset.com/). The small market town lies in the heart of the Somerset countryside. It has many independent businesses including shops, boutiques and galleries and at the weekly Tuesday market local producers gather to sell their wares including organic vegetables, artisan bread, cheese, meats and fish. New restaurants have recently opened as well as a wonderful delicatessen and independent wine shop. Other amenities include nursery, primary and secondary schools, health centre, dental practice, library, bank, post office, grocery stores, butcher, newsagent, chemist, pubs, restaurants and and tea shops. Large supermarkets are located in Wincanton and Shepton Mallet which are both a short drive away. Gillingham (approx 20 mins away) has a Waitrose as does Sherborne (30 mins away).
For further shopping and recreational activities, Bath, Bristol, Wells and Yeovil are all within about an hour’s drive. The A303 (6 miles) provides a direct route to London via the M3 and there is a mainline rail service from Bruton/Castle Cary to London Paddington (approx. 2 hours) and also the new train to Waterloo (Bruton) . Airports in Bristol and Exeter offer connections within the UK, Europe and beyond.
There are excellent local independent schools, within walking distance, to include King’s School Bruton, Bruton School for Girls and also the state owned boarding school - Sexey's, Bruton has its own primary school and in close proximity are Millfield, Hazelgrove and All Hallows prep schools.
From the centre of Bruton, follow the A359 one-way system through Plox, pass King’s School on the left and Wellesley Green is the very last turning on the left before the T junction. No 1 is located in the corner plot at the end.
