Positioned in this enviable location, tucked away from the traffic and with lovely views to both the front and back, this is a charming cottage that has been lovingly updated. It comprises three beautifully finished bedrooms on the first and second floors that are complemented by an equally chic bathroom and ensuite shower room. The ground floor offers the perfect place to relax and unwind. The neutral contemporary feel is seamlessly mixed with some of the more traditional features, such as the gorgeous flagstone flooring and original fireplace. The sitting room has been simply finished with newly fitted cupboards and plantation blinds. The very functional kitchen has benefited from a complete overhaul and now provides some excellent storage, a breakfast bar, electric oven and hob. The hilltop town of Somerton dates back to the Anglo Saxon era when it was the capital of Wessex and an important political and commercial centre. In the centre of the town is a wide market square with its octagonal roofed market cross, surrounded by charming period houses. This attractive small town has an excellent range of facilities including shops, public house and schools, with a larger commercial centre of Yeovil within an easy drive, as is the pretty Abbey town of Sherborne. The A303 is just 5 miles to the south with good connections to London and the south east, the M5 is accessible at Taunton (within 25 miles). Mainline services to Paddington run from Castle Cary, with Waterloo access available form Sherborne, Yeovil and Templecombe.
