'THE IDEAL LARGE FAMILY HOUSE' set within a mature garden off a quiet back water in this popular Somerset/Dorset border village.
Built in 1969, and extended about five years ago, Beech House has only been in the ownership of two families. In recent years, in addition to the extension, improvements have included re-fitting of the three bathrooms, upgrade to the hot water system and insulation and the installation of UPVC sealed unit double glazed Anglian windows and doors. The interior is characterised by big rooms and plenty of light with all the principal rooms taking full advantage of the southerly aspect and views over the garden. On the ground floor, a well proportioned hall with oak floor and wide easy rising stair case is flanked by a study and a large cloakroom. The sitting room has an open fire place, French casements out to the garden and double doors opening through to the kitchen/breakfast room/living room. A wonderful family space. A utility room connects through to the integral double garage which is floored and decorated. On the first floor there is a large principal bedroom with built in wardrobes served by lovely bathroom with separate shower. Two more bedrooms face south and are served by the second bathroom also with a separate shower. Bedrooms four and five are approached via a sitting room/study, ideal for older children and in effect in their own wing with their own shower room. This could also be used as a flat for a dependent relative, or older children still living at home.
At the front of the house is a tarmac parking and turning area giving access to the double garage. The garden is level and principally down to lawn, studded with established trees and shrubs. There is a side storage area with garden shed.
Beech House is situated off a tiny no-through lane serving a handful of other residential properties close to the church in Marston Magna. Once the grounds of Marston Court, the immediate vicinity is lightly wooded with a number of mature trees that stand within the boundary of the property. The village itself is set close to the Somerset/Dorset border within short motoring distance of the regional centre of Yeovil, the Abbey Town of Sherborne and the historic market town of Castle Cary. It is ideally placed for access to a selection of the areas best known maintained and independent schools. The A303 can be joined at Sparkford just to the north, in turn giving good access to London and the South East connecting with the M3 and M25. There is a mainline railway station in Sherborne connecting with Waterloo, and at Castle Cary connecting with Paddington.
