A fabulous chance to purchase a delightful detached bungalow with two double bedrooms, sitting in grounds extending to over half an acre - including formal garden and paddock - and enjoying a quiet lane side position with countryside views. The property lies just over half a mile from the popular Somerset town of Wincanton, which provides excellent facilities with a range of independent shops and chain stores, doctor and dentist surgeries, schooling for all ages and a variety of entertainment venues. It is possible to walk over the fields, behind the property to the town. It is thought that the bungalow dates to the 1950s and has been a loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last four years. During this time it has been exceptionally well maintained and has benefitted from the floor being insulated and a new roof fitted to the conservatory as well as a new instant hot water cylinder installed in the loft. The property also benefits from wholly owned solar panels that provide an income. This wonderful home offers plenty of opportunity for further development, subject to the necessary permissions and provides an excellent foundation for a taste of the 'Good Life' and potential self sufficiency. Equally, it makes an ideal home for those seeking plenty of external space in a rural but not isolated location. A viewing is absolutely essential to appreciate this lovely home, the outside space and the possibilities on offer as well as the position.

The garage (see measurements) above has an up and over door and fitted with light and power. To one side of the garage there is a log store and to the other double timber gates open to the rear garden. From the drive a timber gate opens to the front garden.

Formal Gardens

The front garden is fully enclosed, laid to gravel for easy maintenance and planted with a variety of trees and shrubs and provides a delightful place to sit with a view over the fields and the tweeting of the birds in the background. The main garden lies to the rear and side of the bungalow, mostly laid to lawn and edged by borders planted with shrubs and flowers.


The garden is partly divided from the paddock by a mature hedge with openings for a ride on mower and steps that lead up to the paddock. This is grassed and enclosed by post and rail fencing. The top part has been planted with trees to provide a copse and wildlife area. There is the potential to create vehicular access to the paddock by knocking down and re-siting the garage or to open up to one side of the garage. The paddock provides excellent space for children and pets and could potentially be used for vegetable cultivation or grazing.
