Lattiford, Holbrook, Wincanton - £300,000 For Sale


Property Details

2 1 2
A fabulous chance to purchase a bright and spacious ground floor apartment forming part of a converted grade II listed house and situated in about 12 acres of beautiful parkland with use of a resident's tennis court. The property is located on the Lattiford Estate, which lies about 1.5 miles from the Somerset town of Wincanton. The town offers good shopping facilities from major supermarkets such as Lidl and Morrisons to many independent shops, including a butcher, bakers and jewellers. There are many choices of takeaway providers, public houses, schools catering for all ages plus a doctor's surgery. We believe that the house dates to 1800 and prior to conversion was used as a school for many years. This lovely home retains many character features, such as deep window sills, original sash windows and high ceilings. The apartment benefits from LPG central heating, septic tank and central ventilation system. In addition, the property owns a share of the freehold. This wonderful home is fabulous as a full time home, great as a weekend retreat from a hectic city life or even as an investment for the rental market as well as potential for a lock up and leave UK base. A viewing is essential to truly appreciate the apartment as well as the pleasing and tranquil environment. Please note - Absolutely NO PETS allowed.
