Further facilities may be found just a short drive away in Mere and Gillingham, which also has a mainline train station. This delightful cottage is believed to be in excess of two hundred years old and possibly formed three cottages that have historically been converted to one large dwelling. The property has been the very much cherished and enjoyed home to our seller for about eleven years, during this time it has been well cared for and improved with a reconfiguration to create a good sized kitchen/breakfast room, which has been fitted with modern soft closing units, new pressurised hot water cylinder has been installed along with a new oil fired boiler. The property retains character features, such as deep window sills, exposed ceiling beams and fireplaces and to cater for contemporary expectations, benefits from double glazing with a leaded light inlay, outside work from home space and wholly owned solar panels that provide electricity and an income. This wonderful cottage provides a comfortable and homely interior that will go a long way to meet many potential buyers' needs and must be viewed to appreciate both the inside and outside space.
