Ivy Cottage is a delightful country cottage, with extensive accommodation over several levels originating from 3 smaller cottages. It has been extensively upgraded, yet the property is overflowing with original character and rustic country features, such as exposed beams and stone work, pretty windows and original doors, to create a welcoming family home.

The ground floor features a large dining room with brick surround fire, cosy window seat and flag stone floors which, as the central room, leads to many others including a sitting room with a working inglenook fireplace, a study with characterful beams, and a spacious kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen itself offers classic country style cabinets and integrated appliances, a deep Belfast sink and also an Aga. There is a large island with lots of storage and, being dual aspect, the many windows flood the room with plenty of natural light. Off the kitchen is a handy boot room, with access to the spacious grounds. The second sitting room can be found through the study, with its own fire place and outside access. The useful utility and cloakroom can be accessed in the basement via a stair way from the study. There is also an exterior door.

To the first floor are four generously proportioned bedrooms, all with unique characteristics such as vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. The main bedroom on the first floor is light and airy with double doors and far reaching views over the gardens, whilst the landing offers built in storage. There are also two family bathrooms, one of which features a freestanding roll top bath and separate shower and is accessed along with one of the bedrooms and the dressing room, via a staircase from the second sitting room.

The second floor is home to an expansive characterful bedroom in the attic with a feature chimney breast and wonderful views.

The village of Holton is positioned to the south of Wincanton, set amidst the stunning South Somerset countryside, and within easy reach of the A303. The village has a 400 year old pub and a village hall, both of which run numerous social events for the local community. There is also a Grade II listed Church, and the town of Wincanton is just a short distance away, offering a wide range of every day leisure, healthcare and shopping facilities. There are also a number of highly regarded independent schools within the locality. Train services running to London Waterloo and London Paddington can be accessed from Castle Cary, just under eight miles away, and Templecombe, within three and a half miles from the property.

There are several parking spaces to the front of the property, as well as a car port with a workshop attached, and a small grassed area that wraps around the side of the property. To the rear is an area of patio both sides of the house, a rockery and borders with stone steps leading onto a circular lawned area. Beyond the gardens is an extensive orchard, with far reaching countryside views.
