Full description

Tenure: Freehold


The cottage retains much of the character of the original building whilst having all modern conveniences and services and meeting all current building requirements. Its south-facing aspect makes it light and airy and its secluded position belies its proximity to the main street of Watchet with its shops and services.

This small development has been undertaken over the last few years to a very high standard, using traditional methods and materials, and received a commendation by the Somerset Building Preservation Trust for its quality. Situated just off the main street in Watchet, the cottage offers an ideal full-time or holiday home with the potential of buying the adjacent studio or all three studios as an income-generating project. Watchet is a lively small town on the north coast of West Somerset with ancient harbour, a good range of shops, a station on the West Somerset Steam Railway and easy access to both Exmoor and the Quantock Hills. Taunton, Bridgwater and the M5 are each about half an hours drive away.
