Tremendous Flexibility, Generous Accommodation, Gardens with Potential Development. EPC Bands G and E

Nos. 1 & 2 Westover are a pair of intertwined (but easily untangled) Blue Lias and red brick cottages with a generous cottage garden and a former vegetable garden that may have potential, subject to the necessary permissions, as a building plot.

Our client has lived in the houses since her birth 94 years ago! We are told that the cottages were former offices associated with the former Westover railway station.

The cottages now require repair and complete refurbishment but offer a good degree of flexibility to combine into a generous family home, may be incorporating a self-contained annexe, or remaining as two cottages and attracting a rental income.

There is mains gas to the properties; No. 1 has limited heating installed but No. 2 has a Vaillant boiler and partial radiator heating system. There is mostly uPVC double glazed windows throughout both properties.

Note – Please be aware that the cottages are unregistered.

The property occupies an almost hidden location tucked down from the road on the western outskirts of Langport. It is within 500 yards from the centre of the town which offers an extensive range of everyday amenities including shops, post office, bank, doctors' and dentists' surgeries, library, inns, schools, churches, garages etc.

Huish Episcopi Academy with its adjoining sixth form and sports centre with sporting facilities for all ages is situated close by at Huish Episcopi.

Other nearby centres include Taunton, Yeovil and Bridgwater, all about thirteen miles distant.

The M5 Motorway can be accessed at Taunton (junction 25) and Bridgwater (junction 24).

There are main line rail links at Taunton, Castle Cary and Yeovil.

Langport is surrounded by excellent walking and cycling country that is steeped in history. Nearby attractions include National Trust and English Heritage properties, beautiful gardens, conservation areas and RSPB and Wildlife Trust reserves.

The frontages are on a no through lane with just two other properties needing to pass their doorsteps. No. 1 has a side garden laid mainly to lawn and with access to a workshop and gated access to the rear garden.

A driveway leads to a parking area, car port and red brick outbuildings. Please note that No. 3 Westover has a right of way over the driveway to its own parking space.

The rear cottage garden is a neat delight of planting, lawn, seating areas, greenhouses and raised beds. There are two red brick former ‘privvies’ used as stores.

Beyond the cottage garden is the former vegetable garden which is enclosed and potentially accessed through the car port.
