A splendid opportunity to purchase a unique detached stone cottage with three bedrooms, parking and just a few steps to the high street. The cottage is ideally located, just a short walk to the mainline train station, which serves London Waterloo and the West Country and all the town's amenities, as well as being close to some fabulous country and riverside walks. We believe that the property dates to the Victorian era and has been the very much cherished and enjoyed home of our sellers for the last thirty years. During this time it has been extremely well maintained and improved with a new combination boiler about three years ago and new carpets were laid eighteen months ago. The cottage also benefits from uPVC double glazing and takes in some delightful views of the Mere Downs and Duncliffe Wood from the upper floors. This lovely home offers so much more than the frontage suggests with its wonderful pitched ceiling in the kitchen, porthole windows, exposed timbers and fireplaces. A viewing is vital to really appreciate what this home has to offer, not just for the inside space but also the outside space and the location. An early viewing is highly recommended to avoid missing out on the chance to own this property as seldom does this type of home become available in such a central location.
