EPC Rating E.

A true rarity having not been sold since 1970, this cherished and loved family home sits in the unspoilt attractive heart of the village of Parbrook, surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside and only minutes to the A37 for those needing communication links. Pembrooke House originally dates back to the 1900's and has undergone a significant remodel in 2015 and now provides extended, bright and welcoming accommodation, surrounded by a fantastic plot offering huge appeal, including a former orchard area adjoining a small stream.

The accommodation is accessed from the front with a glazed porch leading through to a traditional Victorian hallway, with 2 reception rooms either side and both with fireplaces and large windows overlooking the front garden. The Kitchen Breakfast room sits to the rear of the dining room with traditional wooden freestanding units with woodblock work surfaces and a fitted Belfast sink, a useful side glazed porch adjoins and leads out to the driveway. Set off the rear of the kitchen is a generous utility/boot room, ideal for those with dogs, sport playing children or to enter after working in the garden, as a shower room has been provided at the rear of the utility. The first floor is split via a half landing with 2 large double bedrooms to the front, a third single room at the rear and a refitted modern shower room alongside.

Pembrooke House can be found in the favoured and popular hamlet of Parbrook. The hamlet is in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the countryside and footpaths in every direction are a delight for walkers. Parbrook, although peaceful and secluded, is well placed for road access to various towns including Glastonbury, Wells, Shepton Mallet, Street and Castle Cary. The nearest primary schools are a very short distance away in the villages of Baltonsborough and West Pennard and there is a good selection of secondary schooling, both state and independent. The hamlet is particularly well placed for Millfield Prep and Senior Schools. For those needing commuter facilities, there is a mainline train station at nearby Castle Cary for the direct fast line to London Paddington and there are excellent road links via the A303 to the south.

At the heart of the village on Stone Lane, the property is set back, with a lawned garden area complete with slate-style paving, a central path, and a pedestrian gate out to the lane. A long driveway, being part walled and gated, leads down to substantial gravelled parking and turning area, complete with detached modern timber garage. The rear of the plot provides a wonderful amenity area, which was a former orchard and garden and in more recent times kept as a paddock for ease of maintenance, it gently slopes down to a little stream, providing an idyllic setting for this country house. The plot in all extends to 0.504 of an acre.
