Full description

A fantastic opportunity to acquire this stunning Hamstone cottage in the very sought after hamlet of Thorne. Dating back to the 1700’s, this cottage has retained many of its period features including Hamstone mullions and an impressive inglenook Hamstone fireplace. Despite its age and character, the property has undergone extensive works in recent years to include modern double glazing, gas central heating (new boiler fitted Dec 2012), a new kitchen, recent bathroom and rewiring (2012). The resulting property has an attractive mix of character and modern conveniences within this beautiful picturesque hamlet overlooking open countryside.

The light and airy accommodation briefly comprises a recently fitted kitchen-diner with solid oak units and spacious lounge with inglenook fireplace on the ground floor. Above are two double bedrooms, a further single bedroom and a family bathroom. Outside is a large outbuilding with light and power that doubles as a utility room, and two garden areas both with stunning rural views. The larger of the two gardens also benefits from a substantial summer house looking across rolling countryside to the south.     

Thorne Coffin, or Thorne as it is known locally, is a small hamlet located to the north-west of Yeovil. Thorne itself is situated on a no-through road and comprises a collection of attractive Hamstone properties set within rolling countryside. Thorne is incredibly quiet and retains a very rural feel yet maintains very good links to Yeovil and local amenities being only 2.5 miles from the town centre.  Wistaria cottage is located towards the north end of the hamlet with the front of the property and gardens in a southerly aspect.

This is a truly stunning property in a unique and attractive location. Packed with character; Wistaria Cottage has been thoughtfully improved in recent years by the current owners and it cannot be stressed enough how essential it is to view the property to appreciate it and the surrounding village and countryside alike.
