A delightful semi detached Victorian stone cottage with three bedrooms, which has recently been improved to create a bright contemporary home enjoying views over the Blackmore Vale countryside to the rear and situated on the fringe of the popular Somerset village of Henstridge. The cottage is a short walk to a Good Ofsted rated Primary School, two pubs, Village Hall and local shop with Post Office.

The property benefits from excellent communication links with easy access to the A30 and A303. The mainline railway station at Templecombe, with direct trains to London, is less than 2 miles from the property. The cottage has been the much loved and enjoyed home to our seller for the last eight years. During this time it has been greatly improved with the installation of calor gas fired central heating, new oak flooring has been laid to the majority of the ground floor rooms plus a stylish contemporary bathroom suite has been fitted. The kitchen units have been replaced with soft closing cupboards and some integrated appliances. The cottage has also been redecorated in neutral colours and a cloakroom created in bedroom three, which also has a shower. In additional, the rear garden has been landscaped and new fencing erected. A viewing is an absolute must to truly appreciate what this home has to offer and how it would satisfy many potential buyers' needs.
