In brief the main property comprises an entrance porch, sitting room, family room, open plan kitchen/dining room, utility room, WC and two double bedrooms, both with ensuite facilities to the ground floor and three bedrooms and family bathroom to the first floor. The owners have taken great care and attention to provide a most stunning family home. From the outset, the living accommodation oozes charm and character, with flag stone flooring, exposed beams and a beautiful inglenook fireplace and coupled with the tasteful and up to date renovation and extension, provides a cosy, yet practical home. Of particular delight is the kitchen/dining room. The kitchen, which has the benefit and comfort of underfloor heating, is well fitted and is open plan to the large dining area, offering a wonderful, light and airy sociable family space, perfect for modern day living and entertaining. The aspect from this room is simply beautiful, leading out via French doors into the large and private garden, it offers a wonderful feeling of space and calm. The open plan theme continues from the kitchen, into a most useful area, perfect for a study or an inner hallway, with stairs leading up to the first floor. The family room leads off from here and is a cosy, yet spacious second reception room, with feature fireplace and amazing views towards Glastonbury Tor. The bedrooms to the first floor are all of good proportions and have built in storage, with the two front bedrooms having beautiful and decorative feature fireplaces. The annexe was formerly a WW2 Nissan Hut, which has been cleverly and tastefully transformed to create a most wonderful extra living space, comprising a kitchen/dining area, sitting room with log burner, bedroom and wet room. This property is very versatile, and it will undoubtedly therefore be of huge interest to families, those wanting a property set in an idyllic countryside location and anyone who requires self-contained additional living. A most remarkable, charming and enviable home.

Meare is a village situated approximately 2 miles from Glastonbury. The village has a Church, Pre-School, Primary School and many clubs and societies. Close by is the renowned Shapwick Nature Reserve. This magnificent wetland reserve is managed by Natural England and covers over 500 ha. An incredible 64 different species of birds nest at Shapwick and over 24 different mammals have also been seen including water voles, lesser horseshoe bats and of course, otters. Glastonbury and Street caters for most everyday needs, offering good shopping facilities as well as restaurants and pubs, churches, together with an open-air market in Glastonbury on Tuesdays. Schools are plentiful with the Cathedral School, St Dunstan's School and primary school in Meare, Millfield School in Street and Downside School in Stratton-on-the-Fosse are easily accessible. There are good road connections to Bristol, Bath, the M5 and Bristol Airport, with direct rail links from Castle Cary (about 20 minutes' drive away) to London Paddington.

The property is approached via a five bar gate and leads to a private driveway, with ample off-road parking for several cars. The very good size garden offers circa 2 acres, wrapping around the cottage to all sides and is fully enclosed and bordered by countryside very close to the beautiful Shapwick Heath Nature Reserve. Laid mainly to lawn, with mature trees and shrubs, there is plenty of scope for keen gardeners to put their own stamp and design to it and from the kitchen/dining room is a spacious west facing gravelled area, perfect for entertaining and alfresco dining in the warmer months.

N.B. There is a possibility of purchasing a further area of copse to the rear of the garden, should one wish.
