Property Details

1 1 1
A great opportunity to purchase part of an historic grade II listed 17th century house, which was once The Ship Inn and located in the heart of the small, pretty Wiltshire village of Mere. The property is a beautifully converted first floor apartment with one large double bedroom, boasting views of the church tower and town centre and is presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain. The apartment has been tastefully converted to provide 'on trend' contemporary open plan living space yet retaining many character features. These include the main staircase with part wood panelled walls, an original fireplace surround in the apartment's own hall, plus beautifully ornate plastered cornices in some of the rooms. The property also has the original leaded light windows and tall double doors with moulded architrave and broken crown open to a storage cupboard. The property benefits from high ceilings, secondary glazing and gas fired central heating. Outside, the original carriage way still has the cobbled stones and the original panelled door opens to the main entrance hall. This delightful apartment would make a great first time buy, ideal lock up and leave UK base or even as a retreat from a hectic working week. Viewing is vital to really appreciate the quality and size, as well as the location in the town.
