Acacia Cottage is a charming three bedroom family home within a short walk of the popular village of Wedmore and all it amenities. This spacious and light Grade II listed terraced property is thought to date back in parts around 200 years. The current owners have extended and improved this period property whilst retaining many of the original features including a lovely inglenook fireplace in the sitting room. Recent improvements included a new boiler and an extension at the rear in 2013 to create a wonderful open plan kitchen and dining room, very much in keeping with modern day family living. Finished to a very high standard and measuring 27' x 15' this room is a real feature of the house with bi fold doors opening out to the patio and the south west facing garden. There is an elevated garden at the front which could easily be excavated to create an off road parking space. At the rear there is a large patio area with ample space for a table and chairs with steps up to the remainder of the garden which is mainly laid to lawn.

About the Property 
Acacia Cottage is thought to date back in parts around 200 years and following a drive by in the 1985 the property became grade II listed. The current owners purchased the property in 2008 and have extended and improved the property throughout. In 2013 they extended the property at the rear to create a wonderful open plan kitchen dining area. The work was carried out to a very high standard including natural stone floor tiles with under floor heating and bi fold doors leading out to the patio and rear garden. The owners replaced the boiler at the same time in 2013 and installed the working wood burner in the sitting room back in 2010. Behind a wall in the kitchen, which backs on to the family room there is a cavity which subject to the right adaptations could provide enough room to install an in wall wood burner. The attic is mostly boarded providing excellent storage.
