Townsend Green, Henstridge, Templecombe - £245,000 For Sale

Property Details

3 2 1
A delightful and deceptively roomy linked family home with three generously sized bedrooms and enjoying a tucked away location at the top of a quiet cul de sac. The property is situated on the fringe of the popular Somerset village of Henstridge, which boasts a local shop with post office, two public houses, both serving food, a highly rated primary school and a church. The village also has good communication links with the A30 being close by providing easy access to Shaftesbury and Sherborne plus a mainline train station just three miles away at Templecombe. The property had been the very much cherished and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last three years. During this time it has been very well maintained and has recently had contemporary kitchen units fitted in a navy coloured finish with some integrated appliances. The bathroom has also been retiled and the decking treated. This lovely home provides well proportioned flexible room usage benefitting from bottled gas fired central heating to radiators on an automatic refill system direct to the suppliers and uPVC double glazing throughout. The property would make a great first time purchase or first time family home but will certainly go a long way to satisfy many needs. A viewing is vital to truly appreciate what it has to offer the next lucky owner.
