Property Details

4 2 1
A charming semi attached stone cottage that is in need of some general refurbishment, offered for sale with no onward chain and enjoying a peaceful lane side location within easy reach of the village centre. The property offers surprisingly spacious accommodation with four double sized bedrooms and two good sized reception rooms - both with fireplaces - and has the advantage of an attached garage. The cottage also benefits from uPVC double glazed windows with an attractive Georgian bar, gas fired central heating via radiators and provides the next lucky owner a chance to enhance to one's own design. The property must be viewed to truly value what it has to offer as well as its position, which is just a short walk to the amenities, which include post office, butcher, fish and chip shop, newsagent and chemist. There is also a church, primary school and doctors surgery. Just three miles away is the historic town of Sherborne where there is a mainline train station serving London and the West Country.
