The Property
Somerset Gate is a handsome old cottage with 1950's extensions at either end. Whilst it has features such as sealed unit double glazed windows, it is now in need of complete renovation and modernisation. The accommodation at the moment provides a good sized hall/ utility room opening into an inner lobby around which are located the living room, with its beamed fire place, the kitchen and the ground floor bathroom. Beyond the living room is what has been a bedroom, but could be used as an additional reception room. Upstairs there are two bedrooms off a small landing. Approached from the kitchen is a lean-to back porch and storage area.

A driveway used to lead around to parking and a collapsed timber outbuilding. The garden, which in many ways, is the properties unique selling point is large and secluded, and although overgrown has clearly in the past been extremely attractive. The amenities are significantly enhanced by a small stand of broad leaf woodland which includes a winterborne stream and a small pond.

Agents Note
