A rare opportunity to acquire this charming four bedroom cottage with front and rear gardens, private driveway, off-road parking, exceptional views and situated on the exclusive Barton Road, in the highly desirable village of Butleigh, close to Millfield School. EPC Rating C.

A wonderful opportunity to acquire this four bedroom attached home on the popular Barton Road situated within the village of Butleigh. In brief the property comprises an entrance hall, inner hall, dining room, sitting room, WC, study and kitchen/breakfast room to the ground floor whilst to the first floor are four bedrooms (one with ensuite facilities) a family bathroom and separate WC with bidet. Bethel Cottage is a charming, family home which oozes character throughout including exposed beams and stonework, brick surround fire-place and original doors, all of which provide a real sense of history and warmth. The property dates back to the 1830's and was extended in more recent times and whilst this is very apparent on the outside, the old and new blend seamlessly together on the inside. The kitchen is well-fitted and provides plenty of space for a good-size breakfast table whilst the separate dining room is a stylish and intimate setting for more formal hosting. The large sitting room, with its feature fire-place and wood-burner is the perfect space to enjoy throughout the seasons and will be incredibly popular when entertaining friends and family. The study will be of note for anyone who works from home and could equally double up as a snug or reading room. All the bedrooms are of good proportions with three acting as doubles and one as a single. There is one family bathroom and one ensuite. For those looking to extend the property and/or reconfigure, there is still plenty of scope and flexibility, subject to the usual consents. Perhaps what is most remarkable about Bethel Cottage are the outstanding views taking in the local countryside and Glastonbury Tor beyond and this coupled with its enviable plot and location will prove highly popular with buyers.

The highly sought after village of Butleigh lies in a particularly convenient location for quick road access to both Street and Glastonbury (home to both Millfield Senior and Prep Schools). The lively Village Centre has a shop, Public House and Primary School. There are also cricket and rugby clubs. National communications are available via the main line railway station at Castle Cary which connects directly to London Paddington and the A303 is also within easy striking distance to the south. The beautiful Cathedral city of Wells is approximately 20 minutes' drive, home to Wells Cathedral School together with a fine range of amenities and facilities including Waitrose supermarket.

For those looking for village life, manicured gardens and exceptional views – look no further. Bethel Cottage is approached via a private driveway giving access to off-road parking. There is a lawned garden with central pathway to the front of the cottage with the remainder of the grounds found at the rear. The rear garden is laid to a combination of patio, lawn and vegetable area, it has some of the most incredible views you are likely to find which survey the local countryside, farmers' fields and stretch as far as Glastonbury Tor and the rolling hills beyond. It has to be one of the most idyllic spots to entertain friends and family and enjoy in the warmer months whilst providing any keen gardeners with a very exciting proposition.
