A fabulous chance to purchase a special three bedroom home which offers a unique living experience, located within the conservation area and enjoying views over fields and the church. The property is situated in the small village of East Pennard and benefits from a secluded location, accessed only on foot by an original flagstone path shared with just seven other similar homes. The village lies four miles from Castle Cary, which has a train station and five miles from Shepton Mallet, both towns provide excellent facilities. East Pennard is a small community with a 14th century grade I listed church, which boasts the heaviest peal of 5 bells in the world and due to the proximity of the property - all residents are entitled to a full 3 day Glastonbury Festival pass (worth £360 this year).

Replacing a row of medieval dwellings, this charming property was built in 1865 to home those in service at the manor house - over the course of time five of the cottages were sold off as private residences, however the estate still retains three of the properties. It has been a very much cherished and enjoyed home of our sellers for the last thirty years and has been extended to provide ample space for comfortable modern day living, whilst preserving many character features, such as the original flagstone floors, exposed floorboards and stone mullion windows. There is also an inviting fireplace with slate hearth and wood burner that adds charm and warmth on those chilly evenings.

For those needing to work from home, there is the choice of the study or insulated cabin, both of which benefit from high-speed fibre broadband, ensuring you stay connected at all times. The long front garden provides a peaceful retreat where you can enjoy a coffee or a potter around.

If you're seeking a home with a story to tell, where there is a whisper of a rich past, then look no further - this home will be sure to captivate your heart and fulfil your dreams of a quiet but not isolated life.
