About This Property

Wow. An absolute one-off! We are privileged to offer this outstanding, luxurious and unique home, with state of the art design throughout, private and elevated garden with church views and situated in the heart of the incredibly sought after village of South Petherton.

Chelsea chic meets idyllic Somerset living in what is, perhaps one of the most divine and inspirational properties you are likely to see. Situated in the heart of one of the area’s most fashionable and sought after villages, number 17 must be viewed. In brief the property comprises an entrance lobby, dining room, sitting room, kitchen/dining room and WC to the ground floor, with two bedrooms and a dual shower room to the first floor. There is also a useful attic space to the second floor.
Having undergone full refurbishment in recent years, this property will astound you at every turn. From its beautiful Hamstone exterior to its exquisite interior, every aspect of design has been meticulously implemented to create a truly unique home. The dining room has lovely views out onto St James’ Street and, for those looking to create a studio or bijou shop, there is still commercial use to enable one to do so. The full height double French Windows provide beautiful light whilst the concealed wall-to-wall cupboards offer an excellent, practical storage solution. The windows allow for a flow into the sitting room/snug which is an intimate and inviting space to unwind with a gorgeous log-burning fire and a bespoke staircase with ornate finials, both creating wonderful focal points. This naturally flows through to the exceptional, handmade eat-in kitchen which is fitted with all mod-cons including Siemens and Smeg appliances and central island. The glass roof invites the sun and natural light into the kitchen and the house lends itself to being a wonderful entertaining space. It is worth mentioning that there is underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, solar panels on the roof and a high-tec HIVE system that can be controlled remotely.
From the kitchen, a set of teak handmade ship’s lockers form steps with concealed storage to a passage which leads to the superbly-appointed rear courtyard garden. The part-galleried landing on the first floor is a fascinating and exciting space and includes two sets of illuminated bespoke mirrored-fronted wardrobes. The two bedrooms are both noticeably spacious and are serviced by an exquisite shower room featuring two separate shower cubicles, each with a rain shower, plus a double Venetian-style mirrored vanity unit with marble top, electric underfloor heating and a discreetly-hidden laundry cupboard. Intriguingly, the larger of the two bedrooms is currently used as a winter drawing room – which is nothing short of outstanding. It has dual windows, central gas fireplace and is akin to something you might find in a luxury hotel. For those that only need one bedroom, it is a wonderful addition as a further living space. If that were not enough to whet the appetite there is also a loft hatch with electric automatic steps leading to the fully-boarded attic, suitable for a variety of uses including potential conversion to further accommodation subject to the necessary consents. In our opinion, one of the finest examples ever of its type, perfectly blending modern day living and original character to create a luxury, covetable home.

The historic village of South Petherton offers a good selection of day-to-day facilities including boutique stores, a butcher, bakery, greengrocer, wine merchant, pharmacy, newsagent and Post Office along with the new London resturant HOLM. The village has an active community spirit and welcomes a revived annual Folk Festival and other local events throughout the year offering a variety of music, arts and culture. Yeovil to the east or the county town of Taunton to the west both offer a wider selection of shopping and recreational facilities. Communication links to the area are good, with the A303 providing links to the A30 and to the M5 at Junction 25. Mainline stations at Castle Cary, Yeovil and Taunton offer regular services to central London (less than two hours from Castle Cary) and Exeter Airport has a growing number of national and international flights, including daily flights to London City Airport.

The private, south-facing walled-garden, is reminiscent of a Tuscan or Moroccan terrace, with covered Loggia and gas fire. It is the most exceptional space for entertaining throughout the year and a sun-trap through the warmer months. It also benefits from being completely private and with its views to the church, water features and outside heaters, is an enviable setting for hosting friends and family.
