4 bedroom terraced house for sale

Bowden Road, TEMPLECOMBE

Sold STC £230,000

Property Description

Full description

A great opportunity to purchase a well proportioned Victorian terraced home lying on the edge of the popular Somerset village of Templecombe within easy reach of the primary school and mainline train station linking London to the West Country. We believe that the property was connected to the railway and was probably a workers residence. It has been home to our sellers for the last twelve years during which time they have improved it with the installation of oil fired central heating, double glazing, some renewed floor boards and multi fuel burners in the sitting and dining rooms. The sellers have also converted the loft space into a delightful master suite with en-suite bathroom and boasting far reaching countryside views. The property is also presented to the market with the added bonus of no onward chain. This fabulous comfortable family home must be viewed to truly appreciate the room sizes and easy to use layout.

In brief, the ground floor accommodation consists of porch area, sitting room with bay window and fireplace with burner, dining room with fireplace and burner, kitchen fitted with a range of bespoke units and reclaimed work surfaces and bathroom with separate shower cubicle. On the first floor there are three generously sized bedrooms with the master bedroom occupying the second floor. Outside there is space to the front to park two cars, an enclosed frontage and a long cottage style garden with good privacy and enjoying a southerly aspect.
