A delightful detached four bedroom period stone cottage sitting in grounds extending to over a third of an acre, boasting spectacular far-reaching views spanning over 23 miles of Somerset countryside and offering around 1900 sq. ft (178 sq. m) of living space. The property is located in the desirable and sought after unspoilt village of Cucklington, which lies in the county of Somerset, bordering North Dorset and lies about 3 miles from Wincanton and 4 miles from Gillingham, which has a mainline train station and both offering excellent amenities and schooling. The property occupies a quiet lane side and elevated position and is just a short walk to St Lawrence's church and to the view point, which is definitely worth a visit, with the village hall a little further on where many events take place.

The original part of the cottage dates to 1740 with historic modern day additions that offers ample space for today's comfortable living expectations. There are many character features, which include an inglenook fireplace with a boat's hull serving as a beam, exposed beams and deep window sills plus a fireplace with a burner that adds a cosy feel, perfect for those chilly evenings. The AGA in the kitchen adds a traditional touch and next to it is certainly the place to be in the depth of winter. Not only does this cottage offer historical charm, but it also features modern amenities such as wholly owned solar panels for energy efficiency, uPVC double glazing with a Georgian style bar and has the potential to reinstate a shower room to suit your needs.

Outside, the terraced garden provides a tranquil retreat where you can unwind and enjoy the beauty of nature and the breath-taking view. With over a third of an acre at your disposal, there's plenty of space for entertaining and gardening enthusiasts.

A viewing is essential to truly appreciate this special home and what it offers.
