Property Details

4 3 2
A handsome detached family home with four generously sized bedrooms, boasting some delightful rural views and enjoying a private position at the end of a cul de sac on a small development that lies on the fringe of the popular Somerset village of Henstridge. The property was built about twenty three years ago and has been the very much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers since new. During this time it has been extremely well maintained and improved. Over recent years the property has benefited from new country style kitchen and utility units, replacement suites in the bathroom, en-suite and cloakroom and a wood burner has been installed. The property also has new flooring - either carpets or engineered oak flooring and has had the advantage of a re-decoration throughout. In addition, this well proportioned bright home has uPVC double glazing and oil fired central heating. A viewing is vital to really appreciate how this home will satisfy many potential buyers' needs and its location, which is a short walk to highly rated Primary School, two public houses, Village Hall and local shop with Post Office. There are excellent communication links within easy access to the A30 and A303 and mainline railway station at Templecombe, is less than 2 miles from the property.
