Slades Hill, Templecombe - £300,000 For Sale

Property Details

4 3 2
An attractive and recently updated semi detached stone cottage situated just outside the village of Templecombe. We believe that the property dates to the 1850s and was probably a farm workers home. During the five of ownership the seller has improved the property a great deal by adding a modern kitchen, updating the bathrooms, re-pointed the exterior stone work and a great deal of cosmetic work. In addition, the property benefits from Upvc double glazed windows, some with attractive Georgian bar and has oil fired central heating via radiators with an external boiler. The property is within an easy walk to the mainline train station serving London Waterloo and the West Country and to the newly open Coop store and primary school. There is also a village shop. The village also benefits from a variety of clubs and societies and has a good transport service to the nearby towns where there are plenty of facilities.
