The Brick House is a handsome, south facing, period village house with brick elevations under a slate roof together with a garage/bedroom extension to the side and open views over agricultural land to the rear. The house, which dates from the mid-seventeenth century with later additions, has retained some attractive sash windows, flagstone hall and fireplace surrounds and the majority of the rooms are well proportioned, light and bright. The current configuration of the galleried dining room, rear landing and staircase provides scope for improvement and enhancement of the internal layout, which could deliver a well-proportioned five-bedroom, four-bathroom family home. Please contact the Agents for a copy of the proposed new layout (subject to planning). Historically, the Brick House was owned by the Hallett family who used the upper floors and gallery as a workshop where they manufactured organ pipes. Bounded from the lane by an established hedge, a tarmac drive with turning area leads to the attached double garage with adjoining workshop. To the side of the drive a lawned area with magnolia and holly trees. The majority of the garden lies to the front of the house where a pedestrian path leads to the front door and is flanked by lawns with established borders. There is a small courtyard area at the rear of the house with a further area of lawn and shrubs to the side of the house. The Brick House is situated close to the centre of the popular village of Kington Magna in a conservation area. The village has a 14th parish church and village hall. The nearby market town of Gillingham has a wide range of everyday facilities including shops, a Waitrose supermarket, banks, two doctor's surgeries and a mainline railway station (London Waterloo approximately 2 hours). Castle Cary is 13.5 miles (London Paddington approximately 1 hour 45 minutes). There are a wider range of facilities in nearby Shaftesbury and Sherborne and for more extensive requirements there are the regional centres of Salisbury and Bath all within easy motoring distance. The A303 lies approximately 5 miles to the north giving access to the south west and London, via the M3.
