Property Details

2 3 1
A charming semi detached stone cottage situated on the outskirts of the popular Somerset village of Templecombe and enjoying excellent communication links with the A30,and A303 easily accessible and a mainline train station within walking distance. We believe that the cottage dates to around the 1870's and was probably home to a farm worker. This delightful cottage has been the very much cherished home to our sellers for nearly thirty years. Over the course of their ownership the property has benefited from the addition of a conservatory, new uPVC double glazing and the installation of oil fired central heating plus replacement kitchen units. The cottage also has had extra insulation in the loft space and new French doors in the kitchen replacing a window, amongst other improvements. A viewing is highly recommended to really appreciate this home and its location, which is beside a lovely brook and within walking distance of the village itself.
