A beautifully appointed modern house in a peaceful and lightly wooded setting, only a short distance from the heart of Castle Cary.
Florida House was built in 2000 in the grounds of The Priory in Castle Cary. Situated at the end of a private road shared with four other properties, the house is quietly situated, yet within walking distance of the centre of the town. The house is built with local natural stone elevations with brick dressings under a tiled roof and sealed unit double glazing and gas fired central heating throughout. The accommodation is light and bright and is ideal for family occupation. Fittings are of excellent quality throughout with ornate cornicing, panelled doors, dado rails and engineered wood flooring through the majority of the ground floor rooms and the house is presented to the market in excellent decorative order. A good sized reception hall with stairs rising to the first floor is located in the centre of the house, with access to most of the ground floor. Half glazed double doors open to an elegant drawing room with dual aspect, stone fireplace with inset gas stove and French casements opening to the rear garden. The dining room also overlooks the rear garden, whilst the good sized study is at the front of the house. The kitchen/breakfast room is particularly well fitted with a good range of Shaker style cupboards and drawers with a large double Belfast sink and marble drainer, an inset Rangemaster gas cooker, integrated dishwasher and space for fridge freezer and a peninsula unit/breakfast bar. Double doors lead from the kitchen/breakfast room to a useful family room with dual aspect and French casements to the rear garden. There is also a utility room and two cloakrooms. A spacious galleried landing gives access to the bedroom accommodation consisting of a master bedroom with en suite shower room with a large shower cubicle, WC and twin wash hand basins and a walk in wardrobe, a guest bedroom with en suite shower room, two further double bedrooms, a single room and the family bathroom with panelled bath and separate large shower cubicle. All bedrooms bar the smallest have built in/fitted wardrobes.
