Property Details

3 2 1
A rare chance to purchase a bright and spacious semi detached Victorian cottage with three bedrooms and located in the heart of the delightful Somerset village of Templecombe. The village has a thriving community spirit and provides a range of amenities including a Co-op store, post office, cafe and primary school. There is also a recreation ground with good play area, a church and importantly a mainline train station serving London Waterloo and the West Country. This delightful stone cottage dates to around the 1860s, built as a railway workers home and has been a very much cherished and enjoyed home to our sellers for about fifteen years. During this time it has been exceedingly well maintained and improved with an extension to the side that has provided a utility/boot room and useful downstairs shower room as well as a re-configuration on the first floor to allow for a good sized bathroom that has been fitted with a stylish suite. The cottage retains its character with deep window sills, two wonderful original fireplaces with black iron grates and boasts surprisingly high ceilings. To satisfy contemporary expectations, the property benefits from oil fired central heating via radiators and uPVC double glazing with some windows enjoying an attractive pane glass effect. This fabulous property would make a great first time buy, first time family home or even as a downsize or bolt hole from a hectic city life. An early viewing is vital to avoid missing out on the opportunity to purchase this special home.
