Property Description

The Rest and Be Thankful is a large home with a modern, contemporary interior located in a stunning elevated position offering fabulous views.

Originally thought to be one of three ‘Ale houses’ found in the village in the late 1800’s the property has been imaginatively and sympathetically, extended and re-modelled into a superb family home with spacious and flexible accommodation.

The property includes a fabulous open-plan kitchen dining room with a double height window making the most of the far reaching views and an ideal entertaining space. There are many character features including a Melbury Stone fire surround, wood burning stove, exposed beams and galleried landing. The garden is elevated and situated behind the property offering amazing views and sunsets. There is an additional paddock accessed via a track behind the house available under separate negotiation for a Guide price of £25,000

SITUATION
Pen Selwood is a small village on the southernmost tip of Somerset adjoining the Dorset and Wiltshire borders, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This rural village offers a thriving community with a Church and Village Hall but within a ‘stone’s throw’ of the hubbub of towns such as Wincanton and Gillingham which both offer amenities for your everyday needs including: doctors surgeries, dentists, opticians, supermarkets including Lidl, Waitrose, Asda and Morissons. There are also a choice of other well-known and independent retailers. The area is well known for the selection of good state and independent primary and secondary schools e.g. Sexey’s, Kings School Bruton, Port Regis and others. The local countryside offers many leisure pursuits such as riding, golf, cycling, walking plus tourist points like Glastonbury Tor, King Alfred’s Tower, Stourhead and Longleat.

OUTSIDE
To the front of the property is a narrow area laid to lawn with a stone pathway to the front door and an area of Tarmacadam suitable to park two cars and a gravel drive leading to an outbuilding. The majority of garden lies to the rear of the property and is elevated, allowing for far reaching views. A decked area is accessible from the first floor landing and an area of paved terrace is located next to the summer house. A separate track ( our clients have a right of access over ) runs behind the property to a paddock (available under separate negotiation).
