THE AGENTS SAYS...
Kingsbury Manor Cottage is a fantastic and unusual marriage of charm and space, combining large open plan living areas with the character of Georgian period features. All of the living accommodation has very generous proportions but the splendidly large bedrooms and family bathroom really make this a stand out property, in a great location. Kingsbury Episcopi is a very pretty village on the edge of the Somerset Levels, where the cottage occupies a prominent position on the central road. Crowned Somerset Village Of The Year 2018, there is a great community spirit with the community centre, shop and café providing a lively local hub.
The front door opens into a long entrance hallway with a cloakroom at the far end. A door to the left opens into the very large sitting room (formerly two rooms) which has been zoned into a formal seating area and a snug, the latter of which has a working fireplace with multi fuel stove. The sitting room leads to the rear hall which provides access to the garden. Stairs rise to the first floor and doors open to the kitchen and adjoining dining room. The kitchen base units and island are painted in on-trend inky blue which contrasts beautifully with the cream range cooker, the oak worktop on the island and the original flagstone floors. The connecting dining room has a stunning chevron tiled floor and is a great size for entertaining.
On the first floor are three very generous king size bedrooms and the family bathroom. The principal bedroom has a dressing room, en-suite shower room and handsome fireplace. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are adjoining but each has independent access. Bedroom 3 benefits from a pretty fireplace, built-in storage and dual aspect. The huge family bathroom has a roll top freestanding bath and separate shower. On the landing, stairs rise to the second floor where there is a large attic room and an attic storage space currently used as a home office/gym.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
To the front of the property, enclosed by period railings, is an attractive herbaceous cottage garden with neat lawn. To the side is vehicle access with private parking. At the rear, there is a sheltered patio area and a paved path leading along the back of the house. Beyond this is the level and easily maintained lawn.
Kingsbury Episcopi is a popular and sought after village, largely built of period properties and benefitting from a church, pub and shop. The nearby village of Martock has a wider range of amenities including schooling, and the A303 is within easy reach as are the regional centres of Yeovil and Taunton.
Upon entering the village from the south, proceed to the T-junction opposite the Wyndham Arms and turn left. Kingsbury Manor Cottage will be found after a short distance on your left hand side.
