Property Details

2 1 1
A charming semi detached character stone cottage with two good sized bedrooms, presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain and situated in a quiet pedestrian location, not far from the town's high street. This delightful cottage lies in the conservation area, nestled beneath the church and was originally two cottages, which were historically combined into one dwelling and was once the town's museum. The cottage has been the much loved and enjoyed home to our seller for about twenty seven years. During this time it has been well maintained and improved with an initial renovation, more recently the external woodwork has been re-painted. The cottage retains character features - such as deep window sills and exposed stone walls. This lovely home offers a bright and well proportioned interior that will certainly bring a smile to many potential buyers and would make a great first time home, lock up and leave UK base or even as a retreat from a hectic working week. A viewing is absolutely essential to really appreciate what this home has to offer and its' location, which is just a short stroll to the town centre and within easy reach of the mainline train station serving London, Waterloo and the West Country.
