Property Details

2 1 1
***NO CHAIN***PARKING***A wonderful chance to purchase a spacious semi detached home offered for sale with the advantage of no onward chain and situated in the desirable and sought after Gold Street, which lies within the conservation area, just a few minutes walk to all of the town's facilities. We believe that the property was built in 1873 and formed part of the first ever dried milk processing factory in the country. The factory has since been demolished and developed into sympathetic housing located to the side of the property. This lovely property has been held within our sellers family for many years and over recent times has been a very successful holiday let business. The cottage retains many of the original features, such as, sash windows, a picture rail, panelled doors and boasts high ceilings. The property also benefits from economy 7 electric heating. The property offers well proportioned accommodation, comfortable in its current condition but with the potential to mark it to ones own taste. The cottage would make an ideal first time home for those not wanting outside space, great lock up and leave or even as a weekend retreat and base to explore Dorset and Somersets' splendid countryside.
