A charming detached stone cottage offering around 1075 sq. ft (100 sq. m) of living space with two double bedrooms, presented to the market with the bonus of no onward chain and benefitting from off road parking and pretty cottage style garden. The property is situated in the small village of Yenston, which is just under a mile from Templecombe where there is a mainline train station, primary school and Co-op shop as well as a village shop with post office. Just over a mile in the opposite direction is Henstridge, which also offers a range of facilities and lies close to the main A30 link road. We believe that the cottage dates to the 1800s and has been sympathetically extended in modern times to provide a wonderful open plan combined kitchen and dining room as well as a utility and cloakroom. The property benefits from uPVC double glazing with sash windows to the front, oil fired central heating via radiators and retains many character features including two fireplaces in the ground floor reception rooms and a Victorian style fireplace in the principal bedroom. This lovely home offers well proportioned bright and comfortable accommodation and is in need of some general maintenance. A viewing is absolutely necessary to really appreciate what it has to offer - not just for the inside but also for the outdoor space.
