Virtual Tour

Well, what can we say about a property set in the Wyatt Homes project of Brimsmore and on the authentic, nicely matured Phase 1. The original 'poster-boy' of the development brochure this property is set in one of the nicest positions to become available and offers spacious accommodation over 3 floors. The distinct 'Canford' style home is a slightly larger version of the standard 5 bedroom and is situated in the most idyllic scene of having a frontage which is set back from opposing houses, overlooking a large green area to the front and approached over a shingle driveway at the end of a no-through road all adding to the kerb appeal. The current owners chose this particular house off-plan as it offered one of the larger gardens and more privacy than the normal 5 bedroom houses and this is evident upon visiting and viewing for yourself. Also worthy of note are the room dimensions as this property also offers a slightly wider living room and principal bedroom than the majority of the standard houses available which really does make a difference. Internal inspection really brings home the attention to detail with the added features and personal touches evident throughout, complimented by the use of high quality brands such as Farrow & Ball. The owners have gone with what at first appears to be a bold colour design, this works really well to create a feeling of understated opulence. The original developer built to a very high standard and the current owners have gone beyond to create space that is in keeping with the overall design and feel of the house itself as well as the Wyatt Homes ethos of quality above quantity with bespoke features evident throughout. If you are seriously considering a home in this fine residential area you will not be disappointed to include this superior property on your viewing agenda. We would be delighted to hear from you and help to make the arrangements for you to view as you will be shown around by one of our experienced team who have all visited the property personally and can speak to you at length on any questions you may have.

Approach - This design of house was on the original brochure front cover as it was deemed as the 'superior' design of home for the range of properties made available to the market and finished in an attractive white render. Approach to the property initially is through the impressive Hamstone West Gate entrance off Thorne Lane to the North of Yeovil. The entrance of the development is designed in a Bath townhouse fashion and exudes quality and charm. This particular property is set on a no-through road which offers privacy, space and above all, the feeling of arriving home as you pull up to the front door. The Canford design of property is almost a picture perfect house design.

Ground Floor - Upon entering, you are immediately taken by the tasteful contrast of bold colours and added features which compliment the exterior design and create a continuation of the welcoming aspect of this fine home. Distribution on this floor includes a full length sitting room with front sash windows, feature multi-fuel stove and rear aspect French doors all with bespoke blinds. To the rear of the entrance hallway is a practical downstairs cloakroom, however the main attraction is the full length kitchen and dining area which creates a comfortable homely space. The kitchen is to the original development specification and therefore of a high quality, in addition to this fine base the current owners have added bespoke fittings and fixtures which again compliment the overall original design of the home. Off the rear of the kitchen/dining area is a separate Utility area with its own individual external door to the rear garden.

First Floor - An impressive staircase leads from the ground floor to the spacious landing which in turn provides access to the main bathroom with the welcome option of either having a nice soak in the bath or a more practical rinse in the separate shower. Fully tiled and complimented with a range of contemporary finishes. There are then 2 double bedrooms, the front is currently used as a home office as there is high speed broadband available. The principal bedroom (wider than a standard 5 bedroom house in Brimsmore) is everything you would hope for in a modern home, with width, depth, built-in storage and its own tastefully designed, full-sized en-suite.

Top Floor - With 2 double bedrooms with front and rear aspect windows, lots of storage, including on the landing itself and a shower room with WC, this is ideal for the kids or visitors.

Rear Garden - Spacious, wider and more private than any garden I have been in personally in the Brimsmore development. This is a glorious space with initial patio area providing access to the driveway with a side gate, access from the kitchen, access from the utility and access from the sitting room, really there is no excuse not to step out and enjoy the fresh air. The main lawn has been replaced with a weatherproof, lazy-lawn, no lawn mower required! To the rear the owners have built a raised terrace with covered space including an electric heating element for those colder nights and this is framed by an almost tropical background of mature firs and plants. And believe me, the sound on the roof when it rains is absolutely glorious.

Parking and Garage - Accessed is over a shared shingle drive with your own private parking space which in turn provides access to the garage and then gated access to the rear of the house and garden.
