West Hill House is a grade II listed period home situated on the edge of Wincanton – a small town in the heart of Somerset, close to the main line station in Castle Cary and the thriving town of Bruton. Dating back to the 19th century, the property was built with cut and squared local stone with ashlar dressings, has a hipped Welsh slate roof with wide eaves overhang, and 12-pane sash windows in architraved surrounds.
There is an original Georgian front door up 3-steps, with radial glazed Regency style fanlight in semi-circular arch flanked by tall stone Doric columns – a truly impressive entrance.
There is a dual aspect drawing room with period fireplace and period detailing. The dining room is opposite and to the rear of the property is a further reception room and a large kitchen. There is a door to the rear. Central to this floor is a delightful Georgian staircase leading to the first floor. There is a side corridor which leads to a cloakroom and then into the heated swimming pool and entertainment area. There is a further cloakroom and changing room.
Upstairs there are five double bedrooms. All rooms have been most tastefully decorated. The master bedroom has wonderful views over Wincanton and to the somerset countryside beyond. There is a large ensuite bathroom. There are four further bedrooms and another bathroom.
West Hill House is reached via a wrought iron gated entrance and set in formal and natural grounds of around an acre. The driveway sweeps to the rear where there is access to the garage which has a large room above. There is also a utility/laundry room. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and a terrace. To the rear is a wooded area.
Homes of this substance rarely come to the market so we are expecting strong interest.
