Wellesley Green is a no-through road of substantial detached houses, a short walk from Bruton high street and the schools. No 2 is a great family home with capacious and flexible living space.
The ground floor comprises a sitting room, formal dining room, study, downstairs loo, an exceptional kitchen/dining/living space and separate utility. Double glass doors from the entrance hall open to a light filled sitting room which spans the depth of the house, with a wide bay window to the front and sliding glass doors to the garden at the back. To the front of the house, an elegant, formal dining room would also make a great snug or playroom, and there is a good size study and a downstairs loo. The current owners have converted the large double garage to extend the kitchen into a fabulous kitchen/dining/living space, perfect for family life and for entertaining. One end is fitted in stylish grey units with oak worktops and a Smeg range cooker. A central island with high stools at one end is the perfect spot to sit with a glass of wine and chat to the cook. Windows at this end overlook the garden. The other end is a wide-open space for large comfy sofas and a large dining table. Windows all along the front enjoy a south-easterly aspect and bring in all the sunshine. Off the kitchen is a separate, fitted utility/laundry room with a sink, a huge storage cupboard and a back door to the garden.
Upstairs, a light and spacious landing leads to four extremely generous double bedrooms, a single bedroom and family bathroom. The luxurious bathroom is tiled in travertine with a free-standing bath and contemporary vanity unit. The single bedroom is currently used as a second study but would also make a great dressing room, and there is a lovely big airing cupboard too. The master bedroom has an en-suite with a wet-room style shower and three of the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes.
A five bar gate opens into a driveway with parking for several cars. An attractive high stone wall encloses the front lawn and offers privacy. A pathway leads around the side of the house, with useful bin storage cupboards, and a gate through to the back garden. A wide rear lawn is enclosed by fencing and mature shrubs, with a spacious deck and terrace running all along the back of the house providing lots of room for seating and dining al fresco. One end catches the evening sunshine and the other, the morning sun. Two sheds provide plenty of storage.
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, library, post office, several mini supermarkets, fuel station and numerous independent shops. Bruton is only a 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, butcher and independent wine shop. Other amenities include nursery, primary and secondary schools, health centre, dental practice, library, post office, grocery stores, butcher, newsagent, chemist, pubs, restaurants 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 - 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.
