On 28th June Annington will unveil four rarely available, lightly refurbished homes with a military past. Situated in Clayton Close in Houndstone, these properties were once used to house serving Armed Forces personnel, and have since been updated by Annington ready for sale.

Tucked into a desirable cul-de-sac setting, these detached three and four-bedroom homes are all set on a large green plot framed by mature trees. Each of these large double-fronted homes comes complete with a private garage and driveway, while inside there is a substantial living area with separate dining room, and a utility room leading from the family-sized kitchen.

Located in Yeovil’s western fringe, new homeowners at Clayton Close are within a stone’s throw of town and country alike. Houndstone is bordered by rural Somerset’s rolling fields and farmland, with Kingfisher Primary School just half a mile away. Yeovil’s regenerated town centre is just a 10-minute drive away, where works are underway for a new town amphitheatre, alongside upgrades to the streets to make them more pedestrian-friendly.

Laurence Cata, Senior Listings Manager with Fox & Sons, the selling agent for the homes, commented: “These homes are expected to sell quickly due to the fast-paced market in southern Somerset and decreasing mortgage interest rates. In May, we saw a surge in home sales in Somerset as buyers are keen to take advantage of the thriving market, and central locations including Yeovil continue to be popular. When these homes hit the market, be sure to act promptly, as they will not stay available for long!”

Louise Saunders, Head of Sales and Marketing for Annington, added: “These properties are full of potential, and have been refurbished with new front doors, with new floor coverings and freshly decorated throughout. We are confident that these homes will appeal to a range of different buyers, thanks to their generous interiors and expansive gardens; from first time buyers or families seeking more room, to downsizers in search of their next home. The homes’ convenient location offers the best of both worlds, as residents can enjoy the amenities of Yeovil while being just a short drive away from the picturesque south Somerset countryside.”

Located on the outskirts of Yeovil, just a short drive from the town centre, the development offers easy access to a variety of shopping and dining options in Yeovil, including those along the High Street and within the Quedam Shopping Centre. Clayton Close is also just a 10-minute drive away from Yeovil Country Park, where visitors can explore numerous footpaths and a café for a relaxing day out.

For those interested in outdoor activities, Yeovil features several golf, bowls, football, and squash clubs. Clayton Close also benefits from its proximity to various transport links, such as the A3088, A359, and A37. Moreover, Yeovil Pen Mill train station is a 15-minute drive, providing regular services to Weymouth, Gloucester, and Salisbury.

Prices at the development start from £345,000 for a three-bedroom home, and £370,000 for a four-bedroom home. Contact Fox & Sons, Yeovil on 01935 412100 to book a viewing.
