Property Details

2 1 1
A fantastic opportunity to purchase a character single storey home sitting in about 0.25 acres with two double bedrooms, enjoying splendid rural views to the rear and located on the fringe of the well served and sought after village of Thornford. This charming home is believed to date to the 1700s when it was a farm workers cottage and has been held in our selling family for over three generations. Over the last few years the cottage has been greatly improved with solid oak internal doors, solid oak flooring to most of the rooms and has high quality replacement uPVC double glazing in a wood effect from the Heritage range as well as a new stylish modern bathroom suite. In addition, the property benefits from oil fired central heating to radiators, underfloor heating in the bathroom and insulated walls and roof space. This bright and spacious home enjoys an easy to use layout that will certainly meet the approval and satisfy many buyers needs. It is essential that a viewing is arranged to really appreciate this very special home and the village, which boasts a general store with post office, public house, primary school and Norman church. The village has a great community atmosphere with plenty of clubs and activities centred around the village hall and recreation grounds and benefits from a train station and is on a regular bus service to Yeovil and Sherbonre.
