Cucklington, Wincanton - £385,000 For Sale


Property Details

2 1 1
A seldom occurring chance to purchase a semi detached home with two double bedrooms, enjoying far reaching views over the Somerset countryside and in the desirable and sought after village of Cucklington. This small village lies in the county of Somerset, bordering North Dorset and sits about 3 miles from Wincanton and 4 miles from Gillingham, which has a mainline train station and both offering excellent amenities and schooling. The property occupies a quiet lane side and elevated position that is nestled beneath St Lawrence's church to the rear and just a short walk to the view point, which is definitely worth a visit with the village hall a little further on where many events take place. We believe that the property dates to the 1930/1950s and over the last few years has been updated and extended by the current owner to provide a bright and spacious contemporary home that will satisfy the needs to many potential buyers' needs - from those looking for a country retreat to a full time residence. This lovely home benefits from a new 'Howdens' kitchen with soft closing units and some built in appliances, new flooring and electric heaters as well as replacement suite in the shower room. A viewing is essential to really appreciate what this home has to offer, both inside and outside and just as importantly its location. An early viewing is highly recommended to avoid missing out on the chance to own this wonderful home.
