Property Details

2 1 1
A charming mid-terrace cottage-style home offering well-proportioned accommodation with two double bedrooms, presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain. The property forms part of a barn conversion in this small development of original village properties and new-build homes. Constructed of the locally quarried Forest Marble stone and slate roofing of the original barn, interestingly the kitchen used to be part of Joan's village shop. It is ideally located close to the heart of this popular Somerset village, which boasts a store with post office, two public houses, a restaurant and primary school, plus a village hall which hosts regular events.

The cottage benefits from the remaining four years of the builder's guarantee and an economical air source heat pump heating system, offered in excellent decorative order throughout. All windows are double-glazed, the entrance being UVPC and the remainder wooden-framed. A viewing is strongly recommended to fully appreciate this special home and how it would meet a great many potential buyers' needs - from those seeking a first home to those looking to downsize, or as an investment or UK lock-up-and-leave base.
