Property Summary

Crossways is a pretty, 17th century stone cottage and one of several terraced houses set at the heart of the village, looking out onto a medieval standing cross in the ‘square’ which at Christmas time, houses the village Christmas tree. Whilst the property is well presented, there is some scope to enhance the property and make the most of its period features.

The cottage is set back from the road that runs through the village. A pretty front door leads directly to a spacious living room that features a handsome stone fireplace, sash windows with pine internal shutters, and an original and fabulous flagstone floor underfoot. A well-furnished galley kitchen and a bathroom with a shower over the bath complete the first floor.

Upstairs are two spacious double bedrooms and a separate cloakroom.


The cottage has a cheerful whitewashed terrace area to the rear and a useful stone shed.


Crossways is ideally situated in the centre of Evercreech. Village life is vibrant and there is a tangible sense of community spirit. Along the High Street is a local Co-op and Post Office, a village village bakery, a dog grooming parlour and a doctor's surgery. Meanwhile, a busy community hall is used regularly for various local classes, clubs and private events and on the outskirts of the village lie easily accessible footpaths/fields, popular with local dog walkers.

Evercreech also has a well regarded Church of England primary school, with a 'good' Ofsted rating, incorporating a pre-school.

The village is surrounded by beautiful countryside and the local Mendip Hills offer the opportunity for endless rambling and cycling. Evercreech is a stone’s throw away from fashionable Bruton with its bustling high street that is home to a florist, a pharmacy, boutiques, the renowned restaurant, At the Chapel and the world-famous art gallery Hauser and Wirth.
