Set in a wonderful and tranquil tucked away setting with glorious countryside and orchards around and offering complete privacy combined with views towards Glastonbury Tor. This superb character house offers space for a modern family to expand into or for multi-generational living/income potential, with gardens, paddocks and outbuildings extending to 1.34 acres. EPC rating F.

Canters Green offers an exciting and rare opportunity to be tucked away with complete privacy and yet being just over 1 mile to the A371, offering accessibility for commuting or school runs. Approached via a wonderful tree-lined driveway, with the paddocks to the left and open farmland to the right, you get an immediate sense of what a wonderful home is on offer. The property is believed to have once been a pair of workers' cottages, set within the farmland and dating back to circa 1886 and then extended and redeveloped between 1980 and 2000, with the paddocks also added during this time. The property has been a highly cherished family home in recent years and is now being sold with no onward chain. Entering from the front into the older part of the property you head into a welcoming reception area with the stairs to the first floor. To the left is an attractive reception room, complete with inglenook fireplace and fitted stove, giving a cosy snug to retreat to in winter months or potentially providing a play/formal dining room. To the right of the hallway is the kitchen, with a cottage style finish, including an impressive stone inglenook, housing a Rayburn (currently not used), which expands around into a flexible open plan style living area, at present offering a good size dining space, with doors and views out to the private gardens at the rear, and also leading into a sitting space, complete with a large wood-burning stove and again with views over the gardens and towards Glastonbury Tor. A practical utility/boot room leads from the kitchen and out to the garden, plus a useful laundry room. There is also another recently developed room off the kitchen which could be utilised as a second boot room/utility room or tack room if required. Access to the annexe/holiday let follows from here and has a huge appeal for a variety of different uses, offering a particularly generous sitting room, bedroom, kitchen breakfast room and shower room. To the first floor, the left-hand section of the house offers a spacious guest bedroom, complete with a modern shower room. To the right of the stairs you will find two further double bedrooms, which have the use of a wonderful recently upgraded family bathroom. The final space is a recently fitted master suite which provides generous amounts of fitted storage and a contemporary ensuite, with glorious views across countryside towards Glastonbury Tor.

West Bradley is an unspoilt hamlet nestled in wonderful open countryside and a range of orchards, in an accessible part of the county but well away from main roads. Although peaceful and secluded, it is well placed for road access to various towns including Glastonbury, Wells, Shepton Mallet, Street and Castle Cary. The nearest primary schools are a very short distance away in the villages of Baltonsborough and West Pennard and there is a good selection of secondary schooling, both state and independent. The hamlet is particularly well placed for Millfield Prep and Senior Schools. For those needing commuter facilities, there is a mainline train station at nearby Castle Cary for the direct fast line to London Paddington and there are excellent road links via the A303 to the south.

Approached off a country lane onto a private driveway, with a paddock on the left and an attractive range of native and specimen trees running alongside. The paddock is stock proof and has been grazed by a local farmer's sheep in recent times. This could provide a great little pony paddock or an ideal space for those with large dogs or other animals. Further along is a yard area with 3 timber stables. The drive then continues to a large parking and turning space as well as a double garage with a mezzanine for storage. There is a lovely approach to the house with lawns, shrubs, and well maintained hedging. A wide gated access way leads around the rear of the annexe to the main garden which offers a lawned area with trees and shrubs, interspersed towards the boundary hedges. The lower garden area once formed a highly productive vegetable garden separated by a hedge from the main garden and is currently laid to lawn. The property sits in gardens and grounds extending in all to 1.34 acres.
