DESCRIPTION At the heart of a thriving village, The Old Co-op, Evercreech offers a number of exciting development possibilities, alongside a spacious family home. Currently arranged as a 4-bed (with separate entrance) on the upper floors and an art/music studio and workshop in the former shop space, with a large south facing rear garden. The residence is accessed via stairs, leading to the first floor landing, large sitting room with views of the church and an open plan kitchen/diner with external door and wrought iron stairs to the garden. There is also a study adjacent to the kitchen and a shower room, while the large airy hallway leads, via a turning staircase, to the four, 2nd floor double bedrooms and family bathroom, all of which enjoy far-reaching views of the surrounding countryside. The current owners have used the ground floor as residential space for the past 7 years and it is registered for council tax. The current owners have recently obtained retrospective planning permission to change the ground floor workshop area (Class B1) to residential (Class C3) (2017/2463/FUL). This is a rare opportunity to acquire a substantial period property with significant development potential and a family home with a sub 2-hour train journey into London Paddington.
OUTSIDE The gardens to the property are located to the rear, being of a good size and south facing. Predominantly being laid to lawn with paved seating areas, the gardens are encompassed by walling, hedging and fencing with mature trees, shrubs and bushes and to the rear of the garden is a large vegetable garden.
LOCATION Evercreech is a thriving village situated between Shepton Mallet and Castle Cary, with access from the A371. Bath and Bristol are easily accessible to the north and the A303 to London and the West of England is accessed either at Sparkford or Wincanton to the South. There is a main line station in Castle Cary to London, Paddington. Local amenities include a post office and shop, hairdressers, pharmacy, doctors surgery, village pub and a local church.
EPCs tell you how energy efficient a building is and give it a rating from A (very efficient) to G (inefficient). EPCs let the person who will use the building know how costly it will be to heat and light, and what its carbon dioxide emissions are likely to be.
