Property Details

2 1 1
A wonderful chance to purchase a charming, double fronted character stone cottage with two double sized bedrooms, presented to the market with the bonus of no onward chain and offering the opportunity to develop the outbuilding. The property is located in a quiet part of one of Wiltshire's smallest towns, within walking distance to a local pub that serves food, primary school and dental surgery. Mere has a bustling community and caters well for everyday needs with a museum, library and medical centre, post office, Co-op store and fire station. There are also an electrical shop and two more pubs. The cottage has been a very much loved and enjoyed home to our seller for more than fourteen years. During this time it has been very well maintained and improved. The cottage has benefited from a new kitchen in a country style and has uPVC double glazed windows with an attractive leaded light inlay, as well as central heating via radiators. This delightful home also retains many period features, which include deep window sills, exposed timbers and open fireplaces. Outside, there is scope to develop 'The Dog House', as work from home space or for accommodation. The lovely home must be viewed to truly appreciate not just the inside but also the outdoor space and the location.
