Property Details

3 2 1
Offered for sale with the bonus of no onward chain is this spacious semi detached family home with three double bedrooms, boasting fabulous breath taking views over the Blackmore Vale countryside and sitting in grounds extending to just over a third of an acre. The property enjoys a rural but not isolated location on the edge of the small Somerset village of Horsington and lies close to some good communication links. We believe that the property was built in the 1930s/1950s and has been a very much loved and enjoyed family home to our sellers for the last ten years. During this time it has been well maintained and improved with new kitchen units about two years ago, the dishwasher is also nearly new, a replacement bathroom suite has been fitted and a new oil fired boiler was installed about two years ago. The property also benefits from uPVC double glazing. This lovely home offers an easy to use layout with flexible room usage and there is also the possibility to create addition accommodation by converting the double garage - subject to the necessary permissions. A viewing is absolutely necessary to really appreciate this home not just for the inside accommodation but also the external space, which offers plenty of rooms for children and pets to let off steam. The nearby village has a well regarded primary school and close by there is a public house and garage with further facilities about 1.5 miles away in Templecombe, which has a mainline train station and Wincanton in the opposite direction and is just 4 miles away.
