Property SummaryCloheen is a charming Edwardian family home discreetly situated on a quiet no through lane in Castle Cary, one of Somerset’s prettiest market towns. This picturesque house is full of character and retains many period features that define its era. It is one of a cluster of family homes that make up a small, hidden community and is well located with a variety of artisan shops and the centre of town just a short walk away.
The house is accessed either via the front door beneath a charming period porch or from a side door that opens to a utility room. The hallway features a fine staircase, bookshelves and original heritage Edwardian tiles underfoot. Off the hall are two spacious reception rooms both furnished with magnificent bay windows with lovely views of the gardens. At the heart of the house is a stylish contemporary kitchen that combines with a useful study area. Granite worktops, integrated Bosch appliances and sleek modern units along with a breakfast bar lend a touch of luxury to this space. Directly off the kitchen is a fabulous garden room with double doors that lead to the garden. Natural light pours in through full height triple aspect glazed windows making this the perfect place to enjoy lovely views of the gardens outside.
The master bedroom suite on the first floor accompanies two further bedrooms all with built in wardrobes and a family bathroom. All the bedrooms are spacious and character bay windows offer views of the countryside beyond. Both bathrooms are well equipped with fittings that include oversized showers, a stand-alone bath tub, travertine marble tiles and ‘his and her’ wash basins. The combination of contemporary design blends seamlessly with period features throughout the house. Stairs lead to a Attic room charmingly set in the eaves. This room is currently employed as a home office (ideally adjoined by a cloakroom) but would lend itself to a variety of uses.
Cloheen sits entirely in its own land and the gardens are mostly laid to lawn. Surrounded by fencing and mature shrubs and trees, this a pretty stone terrace offers the perfect spot for summer entertaining. Towards the rear of the garden is an attractive two storey double garage and off street parking facilities. The second storey features a really useful studio accessed via external stairs.

Bruton is a popular town in the heart of the Somerset countryside. It has several well-known restaurants, pubs and bars including “At the Chapel”, “Osip” and “The Roth Bar” at the world-renowned Hauser & Wirth Gallery.
