Background

Set in a natural amphitheatre overlooking the market town of Bruton, Cubis Bruton combines fifty-six highly contemporary 3 and 4 bedroom homes, uniquely designed to offer rural living at its best. This innovative scheme is modern in style, designed to be energy efficient and highly sustainable, featuring beautiful landscaping in keeping with surroundings to blend nature and design in harmony.

Bruton offers more than stunning Somerset countryside – it’s a creative, eclectic community which The Times declared is ‘the most fashionable place to live in the UK’. Cubis Bruton is within easy access to Bruton’s trendy high street as well as the world-renowned art gallery Hauser & Wirth. There is also a direct route to London from nearby Castle Cary station making Cubis Bruton an appealing choice for those who want to work in London and live in the countryside.
