Rectory Lane, Charlton Musgrove, Wincanton - £350,000 Sold Subject to Contract

Property Details

2 1 1
Enjoying a rural but not isolated location is this lovely detached bungalow offering a well laid interior, good sized bright rooms, two double sized bedrooms and a large garage/workshop. The property lies on the outskirts of Charlton Musgrove in part of a most beautiful and unspoiled area of Somerset and just a mile from the town of Wincanton. We believe that the property dates to the 1960s and has been the much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last six years. During this time the bungalow has been well maintained and has benefited from a re-configuration that has created a fabulous open plan kitchen and dining room, the shower room has been replaced with a stylish modern suite, new uPVC windows and doors have been fitted and a fire place with burner added in the sitting room. The garage/workshop has also had the advantage of a new roof and electric remote controlled roll up door. The bungalow benefits from oil fired central heating via radiators, plenty of parking and beautifully kept front and rear gardens. A viewing is essential to truly appreciate what this home has to offer and its surroundings. The village has a public house and two churches. Near by is the popular Stourhead Estate and Wincanton Race Course.
