DESCRIPTION Believed to be the first time on the open market for over 100 years this two/three bedroom semi-detached cottage now in need of updating is offered with no onward chain. The property has in recent years had a new boiler and some new glazing but now offers the scope to improve and extend, subject to the necessary consents.

The cottage comprises a large kitchen/dining room with a range of wall and base units, larder style cupboard, sink and drainer unit and ample space for a dining table. Steps lead to a sitting room which runs the width of the house with an open fireplace, storage cupboard along with windows and doors opening to the south facing gardens.

Stairs rise to the first floor landing with airing cupboard and family bathroom with a bath, toilet and wash hand basin. The main bedroom overlooks the gardens and features an original fireplace. Steps from the landing lead to a further bedroom, currently arranged with one bedroom leading into another, this could be opened up to create one larger room or with the potential to create one half into an office or dressing room. Both of these rooms have built in storage and marvelous views out over open countryside and towards the Mendip Hills.

OUTSIDE The garden benefits from a southerly aspect with a large area of lawns and a patio area from the kitchen, allowing a perfect space for outside furniture. Within the garden are a wild variety of shrubs and bushes along with a wooden shed and greenhouse. Currently there is parking for one or two cars which could be increased if required.
