Full description

Tenure: Freehold

8 Market Street is an attractive semi-detached period cottage, understood to date back to circa 1750 of solid stone under a mainly slate roof. It is Listed Grade II of Architectural or Historic Importance. The cottage offers a number of character features typical of its age and type including exposed ceiling beams, window seat and a large stone fireplace (reputedly some of the stone was taken from the Abbey at the time of the Reformation and features carved details), traditional timber small paned windows and cottage doors.

Under the current ownership for the past 20 years a whole number of improvements have been carried out including re-roofing and features include a very efficient electric central heating system with radiators (installed only about 5 years ago), multi fuel stove, fitted kitchen with solid beech worktops and pull out cooker hood (Hotpoint electric slot-in cooker and Bosch washing machine also available), fully tiled bathroom/WC and first floor wash room, solid oak flooring to the sitting/dining room and secondary double glazing.

The cottage has the rare benefit of being freehold (the vast majority of properties in Abbotsbury are on 90 year maximum leases) and is equally ideal as a permanent home, second home or long term/holiday letting investment.

Viewing is strongly recommended by the sole agents Humberts.

Ilchester Estates, provide Abbotsbury residents with free annual permits for the nearby village car park and also for the Swannery, Tithe Barn and Subtropical Gardens.

There is nearby on street unrestricted parking in the village centre and West Street.

The rear garden features a large adjoining paved terrace, good sized lawn and a whole range of mature shrub borders.
