windows and leaded lights, all under a clay tiled roof. It is
attached on one side and is Listed as being of Architectural
and Historic Importance Grade II. In recent years the house

refurbishment. It is a handsome example of this period of
house containing all those features you would expect to findin a building of this type and age but at the same time
embracing up to date fittings in a style compatible with the original. Features include a fine reception hall with flagstone
floor and a good staircase, three reception rooms, a
traditionally fitted out kitchen/breakfast room complete
with two oven Aga cooker, all together with four bedrooms,
the principal one of which has an en suite shower room and
the second of which also has an attic den or mezzanine. The
rear of the house is south west facing and the front looks out over the driveway to a paddock beyond. This is a delightful period house, equally suited for family living or for
retirement in a popular village.
The entrance drive which runs across the front of the house
is in the ownership of The Chantry but shared with
neighbours. There is a gravelled parking area for several carsfrom which a five bar gate opens to a paddock protecting the front of the house all focused on a mature beech tree. The paddock is enclosed by post and rail fencing or iron railings.The main part of the garden lies to the south west and rear where a paved terrace and entertaining area gives onto the principal sweep of lawn surrounded for the most part of colourful flower borders set against stone walling. In addition to the workshop shown on the plan there is a small garden store.
The property stands side on to the lane looking out over its
walled garden to the rear and its own paddock at the front. It is situated close to the fringe of the northern part of the
popular and sought after village of East Coker. The village
itself has a cafe, village school, pub and church and in part is designated a Conservation Area. It is set close to the
Somerset/Dorset border within short motoring distance of

Sherborne. Both towns have mainline railway stations
connecting with London Waterloo. There is sailing and
fishing available at Sutton Bingham Reservoir just to the
