Property description

A rare opportunity to acquire a rural lifestyle property in the heart of Somerset with views in all directions across neighbouring countryside. Set in approximately 12.5 acres, Bengrove House is sold with no chain and is a beautifully-presented five bedroom stone-built period property dating back to the 1800s and offers flexible and well-designed living space for all the modern family needs. In addition to the main house, this stunning property offers an impressive architect-designed 5-room garden annexe which is ideal for home-working or to run a business from, a fully-equipped mobile home, a detached studio/summer house, stone barn and further outbuildings including stables.

The land includes 10 acres of planted mixed woodland and contains established deciduous trees and mixed fruit trees. The land, which is certified organic by the Soil Association, includes a system of mature vegetable beds and large greenhouses, as well as extensive gardens, play areas and sun patio.
The main house, which is approached via a sweeping tree-lined drive offering covered parking with car-charging point and further spaces for up to 10 vehicles, comprises a large breakfast kitchen with generous granite worktops and flagstone floor, dining room, living room, library/snug, utility/laundry room and larder. There is also a single bedroom/study adjoining a downstairs shower room which could offer the opportunity to create a self-contained area. To the first floor are four double bedrooms and a recently-installed stylish modern bathroom with free-standing bath, separate shower cubicle and twin wash-hand basins.
Further information about the property:
Extensive green energy provision: heat pump, solar hot water, grid-tie 4KW solar PV
Established woodland with 4,000 trees.
Main house is set off the A37, however it has been acoustically double-glazed, and has its orientation firmly away from the road.
The house is an unlisted building and near an AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).
Nearby Castle Cary station provides an efficient commuter connection to London (and the property is 40 minutes from Bristol Airport).

The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:
