DESCRIPTION Set in an evocative 'Harry Potter-esque' lane near the 13th Century Church of St John the Baptist and the historic square in Axbridge is this unique and character packed period terraced cottage, on the open market for the first time since 1998. Offering deceptive recently refurbished accommodation, internally it briefly comprises; entrance hall, living/dining room with brick built fireplace, newly fitted kitchen, utility/rear porch, two double bedrooms and family bathroom WC. The property is warmed by gas central heating and has the added bonuses of a good amount of storage in both fitted wardrobes and the roof space. Outside there is a bijou rear courtyard, great for the morning sun with space enough for a table and chairs, a barbecue, a few herb pots and a clothes line.

The position really is second to none in this historic town, indeed Midway Cottage is set in a lane leading to the church just up from the square which boasts a number of other historic buildings, not least King John's Hunting Lodge which dates from Tudor times and the aforementioned 13th Century Church of St John the Baptist, a beautiful Grade I listed building. However, coupled with its charm and character, it is a highly convenient location, boasting amenities, pubs and restaurants, very good local schools, transport routes for the commute and some of the most beautiful surrounding countryside for walking that anyone could hope to find.

In our view Midway Cottage would suit first time buyers or downsizers wanting period character in a convenient spot, or possibly for investors - the cottage represents an enticing opportunity as it has been rented out with ease for a number of years. Refurbished and offered with no chain, so an early viewing will be essential!


Our vendor says ... I lived at the property until 2003 and bought it because of a downsize. Quite honestly I loved it the moment I walked through the door. It's a unique, private and practical spot with great access to everything you would need in Axbridge. Since 2003 it has been rented out without issue, so this is a distinct possibility for potential buyers.

We have noticed ... First time buyers, downsizers or investors... Are you looking for something a bit unique? Then look no further than Midway Cottage. This character packed country cottage is deceptive in its accommodation and offers easy access to the plethora of amenities that Axbridge offers. A wonderful tucked away position with period features, our vendors park in the Square as it is just a few seconds away, but all Axbridge parking is currently free. No chain... Early viewing advised!
 

SITUATION Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the east side of the A38 and overlooked by Wavering Down and Crooks Peak is the ever popular medieval town of Axbridge (www.axbridge-tc.gov.uk) . This Somerset town is packed with 'old world' charm and its Medieval beginnings are still evident in some of its oldest buildings. An important wool-producer in the Middle Ages, the town has always been at the centre of things, indeed it was a river port in earlier times. This was reflected in its early royal charters allowing it to hold markets, fairs and become a royal borough. It even had its own mint, with coins showing the town's symbol: the Lamb and Flag. There is far less through traffic nowadays, but the layout of the town has changed little over the centuries, a medieval town expanding on a fortified Saxon burgh. Axbridge is well served for local facilities include post office, general stores, primary (www.axbridgefirstschool.co.uk) and middle (www.fairlands.somerset.sch.uk) schools (Fairlands being in Cheddar) and a number of restaurants. Further facilities are available in the nearby villages of Winscombe and Cheddar and as mentioned, primary and nursery schools are available at Weare and Axbridge with older children attending Kings of Wessex School (www.kowessex.co.uk) or private/public schools at Sidcot, Wells Cathedral School and Millfield. The town has good access to the City of Bristol and the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare and there is access to the motorway network at Clevedon (junction 20), St. Georges (junction 21) and Edithmead (junction 22). There is an international airport at Lulsgate and access to a mainline railway station at Yatton.
