A wonderful chance to purchase a delightful mid terraced Grade II listed stone cottage with three good sized bedrooms, presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain and boasting an elevated position, which commands spectacular far reaching views over the surrounding countryside and the village church. The cottage is situated in the popular village of Bourton and is within walking distance to all the amenities, which include a public house - The White Lion, garage with convenience store, church and a primary school. Further facilities are a short drive away in Gillingham, which is less than five miles away, where there is also a mainline train station serving London Waterloo and Exeter St David's. We believe that the property dates to around the late 18th/early 19th century and has been a very much treasured and enjoyed home to the last owners for over forty years. During this time it has been well cared for and offers comfortable accommodation with the option to update to one's own taste and design, as and when required. This delightful cottage retains many character features, such as exposed beams, original style sash windows and panelled door plus a wonderful inglenook fireplace with Bressumer beam. This lovely home must be viewed to truly appreciate what it has to offer, not only inside but also the wonderful cottage garden and the surroundings.
