Orchard House is a handsome village house extending to almost 3,000 sq ft. The property offers light flexible accommodation arranged over two floors. A generous ground floor flows from a welcoming reception hall and comprises a spacious triple aspect drawing room with open fire, a well-proportioned neighbouring sitting room, also with open fireplace, and a useful office. The remaining ground floor accommodation is dedicated to a large open plan kitchen/breakfast room opening into a front aspect dining room with fireplace. The

kitchen has a range of fitted units with a Belfast sink, wooden work surfaces and integrated appliances. There is also a walk-in larder while the breakfast room has French doors to the gardens and an adjoining utility room with garden access.

The first floor accommodation can be accessed via two separate staircases, one in the hall and the other in the kitchen, and comprises a substantial dual aspect master bedroom with built-in storage and an en suite bathroom. Four further bedrooms are served by a family bathroom and a shower room.

The hamlet of Kilmington Common is on the edge of Stourhead and benefits from wonderful and varied walking. Kilmington has a pub and church, and the local town, Mere, offers a range of useful shops including a chemist, doctors' surgery, post office, supermarket, butcher, greengrocer, and library. Nearby, Frome has a thriving arts scene with a cinema and two theatres, and many independent shops. Bruton, only fifteen minutes away, is home to Hauser & Wirth, a world-class gallery and multi-purpose arts centre. There are rail services from Gillingham to Waterloo, and Westbury to Paddington. Communications by road are excellent with the A303 providing a link to the

M3, M25 and London, or the West Country. The area is renowned for its excellent schools which include a superb mixed comprehensive and sixth form college in Gillingham. Private schools include Port Regis, Sandroyd, Hazelgrove, Sherborne, Kings Bruton, Bruton School for Girls, Millfield and St Mary's, Shaftesbury.

Set within a good-sized plot, Orchard House is approached over a gravelled pathway leading to paved terraces to the front aspect, bordered by mature planting. A gravelled driveway to the side of the property offers private parking for multiple vehicles and leads to the useful external stores. The enclosed gardens, a particular feature of this property, lie to the front aspect and are laid mainly to level lawn interspersed with mature shrubs and trees and a screened vegetable garden. The grounds enjoy far-reaching views over neighbouring countryside. Our clients have considered the possibility of building a separate house in the garden. Planning permission has been granted. Planning reference number 18/08360/FUL.
