About This Property

Offering exceptional living accommodation including a wonderful open kitchen family space with bi-fold doors and roof lantern this handsome period house sits in a prominent position in this highly desirable village and is 13 minutes drive to a mainline station.

Banchory Cottage is believed to date back to 1880 and was completely remodelled in 2013 to now provide a beautiful blend of modern kitchen/family room along with 3 traditional reception rooms, one with an open fireplace, recessed upgraded sash windows and working shutters. 4 spacious bright bedrooms to the first floor are complimented by a high quality bathroom. The rear of the property offers a wonderful modern twist with the open kitchen/family area providing an area to entertain or enjoy time relaxing, with bi-fold doors and the large roof lantern offering plenty of light flowing in and leading out to the decked courtyard area. The kitchen links to a generous sized utility room, again with access to the garden and fuel store. The ground floor also has a characterful reception hall plus cloakroom.

Hinton St George village centre comprises mainly period houses, built in local honey-coloured hamstone, which has preserved a special character through little change over the centuries, due to careful consideration of the villagers and the Poulett family, in whose hands it rested until the 1960s. The village has a post office with general store, a well known AA4 star Gastro pub - the Lord Poulett Arms, church, primary school and village hall. The village has a rural nature, with many varied countryside walks in the locality together with a community wood and allotments. Despite this, the communications links are excellent with the A303 approximately 3 miles to the north, leading to the M3 into London and the M5 to the west giving easy access to the north and south west peninsula. Rail connections are available at Crewkerne and Taunton/Castle Cary to London Waterloo and London Paddington respectively. Leisure facilities and shopping may be found in the local market towns of Crewkerne (4 miles), Ilminster (6 miles), Yeovil (14 miles),south coast at Lyme Regis (19 miles). The area is well served by independent schools such as Perrott School, Hazlegrove, Sherborne, Millfield and Port Regis; there are racecourses at Wincanton and Taunton and several golf courses within a 10 mile radius.

Set up off the lane with a traditional flagstone path edged by a grass verge onto West Street with parking available on the lane.
The garden is accessed to the rear either from the utility room or by the bi-folding doors from the wonderful open kitchen space giving a lovely entertaining area onto a sunken decked area with stone walling , Wisteria and shade provided by a beautiful red Acer. Steps lead up to the main garden which has a level lawn, beautifully stocked seasonal flower beds and edged by a lovely old wall giving a huge degree of privacy . The garden has productive raised beds and a sunny entertaining area set around a Pizza oven.
Adjoining this area a door leads into the top of the outhouse (set over the utility so easily possible to join in internally subject to any necessary consents) which has good ceiling height and offers huge potential to provide a excellent home office, gym or playroom.
