Full description

A charming period cottage with 2 bedrooms and an attic room in this popular village location with excellent access to the A303. The property would make an ideal main or second home. Offered with no ongoing chain. EPC Band E.

Situation - South Street is a sought after road on the fringe of South Petherton yet still within walking distance of a range of amenities including a choice of independent and national shops, cafes, pubs and day-to-day leisure and health care facilities, the latter of which includes a community hospital. Broader ranges of amenities can be found in Crewkerne, where there is a Waitrose Superstore, and in the commercial centre of Yeovil. South Petherton is located within South Somerset and is therefore surrounded by beautiful countryside with multiple opportunities for walking, cycling, riding and other outdoor pursuits.
Transport links are good with the A303 trunk road accessible on the outskirts of South Petherton and the nearest motorway junction at Taunton (J25 of the M5). Crewkerne train station offers regular rail services to London (Waterloo) and Exeter whilst Yeovil Penn Mill Station enjoys direct links with Bath and Bristol. Further afield, services to London (Paddington), Birmingham, The North and The South West operate from Taunton Station, facilitating travel to the area from various parts of the country.

Description - Inglenook Cottage is a charming and surprisingly spacious attached cottage located on the edge of the popular village of South Petherton, yet within walking distance of amenities in the village centre. Believed to date back to the turn of the century, the property is not listed but exhibits many beautiful character features including a stunning inglenook fireplace in the sitting room which is arguably the centrepiece of this home and provided the inspiration for the name of the cottage. Despite the age of the property and the character exhibited throughout, Inglenook cottage enjoys excellent ceiling heights throughout and lovely views towards the surrounding countryside and South Petherton Church can be enjoyed from many windows.
Having been under the same ownership for the past two decades, the property has been carefully maintained with uPVC double glazed windows installed recently in many rooms, yet now offers an incoming purchaser the opportunity to modernise certain elements if desired to create a fantastic, characterful home with potential for use as a full-time or holiday home or investment opportunity.

Sitting Room - A delightful and comfortable room with a stunning Inglenook fireplace, into which a log burner is set.
