Wellesley Green is a no-through road of substantial detached houses, a short walk from Bruton high street and the schools. No 3 is the largest plot with a generous garden, and is a great family home with exceptional space. There is also potential for some reconfiguration to incorporate the double garage if desired. Wide, double glazed windows throughout the house let the natural light flood in.
The spacious entrance hall leads to a sitting room, dining room, study, kitchen and the downstairs toilet. Double doors open to a large, dual aspect sitting room which fills the depth of the house; the bay window to the front enjoys the morning sun and sliding glass doors at the rear open onto the garden patio. The limestone fireplace at the heart of the room contains a multi-fuel stove. The large, family kitchen has room for a breakfast bar as well as table and chairs, the fitted units are sage and cream with integrated Neff ovens and hob, and space for an American style fridge/freezer. Double aspect windows look out over the back lawn and wildflower garden. At the far end of the kitchen, doors lead to the garden and the large double garage, (offering the potential to make an extremely spacious open kitchen/dining/living area). A separate, well proportioned dining room to the front of the house could also make a great snug or playroom. There is also a good size study and a downstairs toilet with understair storage.
Upstairs, a light and airy landing leads to four extremely spacious double bedrooms, a further single bedroom, and family bathroom. There is a lovely big airing cupboard too. The master bedroom has a generous en-suite with a large walk-in shower and three of the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes.
Double iron gates open into a driveway, with parking for several cars, leading to a double garage. Bordering the drive lies an attractive pond and rockery. At the side of the house, back-to-back sheds provide lots of storage space. No 3 enjoys a corner plot in the cul-de-sac, where the garden has been transformed into a pretty ‘wildflower meadow’ attracting the bees and butterflies. This would be a perfect spot for a garden office, or just a seat to relax and enjoy the sunshine. This follows round to an attractively designed gravel section and on to a paved dining area outside the kitchen. The rear lawn is enclosed by mature hedging and fencing. An African reed hut seating eight, complete with power sockets, lighting and heating, provides an additional all-weather entertaining space.
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, vets, train station, library, post office, schools, several mini supermarkets, fuel station, garage, and numerous independent shops. Bruton is only a 5 minute drive from the new hotel and restaurant The Newt (https://thenewtinsomerset.com/) and very pretty town of Castle Cary, which has a mainline railway station. 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 - King’s School Bruton and Bruton School for Girls, also the state boarding school, Sexey's, which has received the highest performing 6th form award in Somerset. Bruton has its own primary school and, in close proximity are Millfield, Hazlegrove and All Hallows prep schools.
