About This Property

An outstanding detached Grade II Listed period house offering well proportioned and versatile accommodation together with a very useful barn and swimming pool all set in just under 1½ Acre.

Dry Close is a most attractive and particularly versatile village house offering well proportioned accommodation that is well suited to family use. Traditionally built with stone elevations set beneath a slate roof, the property has been much improved in recent times whilst retaining a wealth of period details including stone mullions, flagstone flooring and a fine plank and muntin screen. Gas fired central heating is installed, supplemented by open fireplaces and many of the windows enjoy secondary glazing. To the ground floor are two well appointed reception rooms, a family kitchen with Aga, cloakroom and utility room. To the first floor are four double bedrooms, one with en-suite facilities and a further bathroom and, on the second floor two more bedrooms, one en-suite, and a sewing room. There is excellent parking and an extremely useful Barn that would adapt to a variety of uses, including conversion potential. The gardens and grounds are well established, largely informal with extensive lawned areas, orchard and kitchen garden with polytunnel, together with sheltered South facing swimming pool. In all the whole extends to an estimated xxx Acres.

The small village of Misterton lies just about 1 mile to the South East of Crewkerne on the Somerset/Dorset border and surrounded by some glorious unspoilt traditional countryside. Village amenities include a thriving primary school, garage, inn, regular bus service and inter city rail service (London Waterloo). Crewkerne offers an excellent choice of local amenities including a Waitrose supermarket, variety of smaller retailers, educational and leisure facilities. Taunton and the M5 motorway are about 20 miles distant and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast some 14 miles distant.

Double gates lead in from the lane to a wide gravelled parking area and a superb stone and tiled Barn, divided internally into three rooms, 66’4 x 10’, 33’6 x 14’8 and 26’ x 14’8, with solid flooring, light and power, and suitable for conversion to annexe accommodation, subject to any necessary planning.
The gardens and grounds are largely informal with sweeping lawns to front, side and rear, mature trees and shrubs, kitchen garden with polytunnel and orchard with apple, plum and cherry trees. Of particular note is the fully enclosed South facing swimming pool with paved surround, barbeque area and Pool House 10’ x 8’ with filtration unit and Garden Studio 14’1 x 9’9 to the rear. The whole area is estimated to extend to just under 1.5 Acres and forms a perfect setting for this fine period property.
