A chance to purchase an historic home with four double bedrooms, oozing with character and presented to the market with no onward chain. The property is situated close to the heart of this popular Somerset village, which boasts a primary school, shop with post office, two public houses, both serving food and the village hall and recreational grounds, which host a variety of events. We believe that the front part of the property dates to around 1635 with the rear being early Victorian and was built for a Yeoman. During the course of its lifetime it has also been a grocery and bakery shop. This rather lovely home offers comfortable living accommodation with flexible room usage and scope to update to one's own choice and style. The property combines old world charm and modern living with a host of features including a fabulous inglenook fireplace with Bressumer beam, further original fireplaces, exposed ceiling beams, exposed plank and muntin walls plus an original leaded light window. Catering for modern day expectations the property has oil fired central heating and nearly all windows are double glazed. with most having an attractive Georgian bar inlay and sash style opening. Outside there is a large garden with the choice to landscape to one's own choices and a range of outbuildings and parking. Viewing is essential to truly appreciate what this home has to offer.
