THE AGENT SAYS...
With a detached Victorian coach house on the driveway and a stream meandering through the beautiful large garden, this 1970s house really is an unusual find. Built in 1973 and subsequently extended, the property has a large master bedroom suite on the ground floor and three further double rooms upstairs but could be easily reconfigured if desired. The utility and garden room are perfectly located to open up the kitchen into the sitting room and create a fantastic open plan living space overlooking the stunning garden. Wonderfully secluded and peaceful, the garden, with its babbling brook, is a real wildlife haven and a feast for the senses to be enjoyed all year round. At the front, the coach house is currently used as a guest suite but has a kitchen area, shower room and sauna and would also make an excellent home working space.
The spacious and bright entrance hallway leads through into the inner hall where there is a WC and stairs rising to the first floor. Double doors ahead open into the smartly finished kitchen/dining room with oak units and a freestanding stainless steel range cooker and matching hood. Off the kitchen is the master bedroom suite which has a walk-through dressing area with an abundance of fitted storage. This leads through to the large en-suite with its luxurious corner bath and separate shower. Back in the kitchen, a fully glazed door leads to the sitting room which overlooks the garden. Off the sitting room is a good-sized utility room with a door out to the front of the property and one to the garden from the rear lobby. BiFolding Oak doors open up the wall of the sitting room through to the lovely light garden room which fully takes advantage of the views over the garden and leads out to the large deck.
On the first floor there are 3 double bedrooms and the family bathroom. There is also a useful storage cupboard at the top of the stairs. All three bedrooms overlook the garden and bedroom 2 is triple-aspect. The two smaller bedrooms are currently used as his and hers hobby rooms/ study space.
Coach House (Annexe)
The Victorian coach house is currently used as a guest room and fitted with a sauna, shower room and kitchen area, along with its own independent heating system making it a versatile space and ideal if someone is looking for a home working space or therapy room. There is also a useful mezzanine storage area.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
The beautifully landscaped gardens extending to 0.63 of an acre, are a feature of this property, with over 38 different varieties of birds, along with an abundance of other wildlife that choose this specially designed garden to live or visit, means the next owner really needs to be a budding wildlife enthusiast.
The sweeping lawn is bisected lengthwise by a brook meandering its way down the garden. Outside the conservatory, running the width of the house, is a lovely raised deck with a aluminium gazebo covering one end. Below this is a gravel area with a raised pond and to the side of the lawn is a timber workshop. A gravel and paving stone path, flanked by shrub and tree filled borders, leads you down the length of the garden alongside the brook. At the end of the path is a further decked seating area, overlooking the brook, and a bridge over to the secret garden on the other side. Across the bridge is a further large area of lawn with a substantial shed at the bottom and a vegetable garden at the top. There is a timber bench tucked under the trees right by the waterside which provides a lovely shady spot for contemplation or maybe just relaxing with a cuppa after planting up the veggie beds. To the rear of the garden is another lovely secluded area which has been specifically designed to capture the sun but with complete privacy.
At the front of the property there is a large gravel driveway with the Victorian coach house, adjoining timber open fronted garage and a storage shed. There is pedestrian access up the side of the house to the rear garden, passing under a lean-to shelter.
Martock is a popular and thriving village with an ancient centre built of period houses and a beautiful church. Martock is well served by local businesses all within a level walk of the property, including shops and pubs, along with lots of community events, societies and clubs. There is also a doctor's surgery, dentist, pharmacy, primary school and very easy access onto the A303. Yeovil and Sherborne are both within easy commuting distance.
