Full description

This is a three bedroom semi detached cottage of character in need of complete modernisation and improvement situated in a convenient position on the edge of the Medieval village of Dunster, offered for sale along with the historic Village Pound.

The village of Dunster is one of the prettiest in England, among its many attractions are the Castle and the Yarn Market. It is on the fringe of the Exmoor National Park close to some of the best moorland and woodland countryside where many delightful walks and other country pursuits can be enjoyed. The seaside town of Minehead is approximately 3 miles distant and provides a good range of shops for everyday and luxury items. The County town of Taunton some 25 miles distant, provides excellent shopping, leisure and entertainment facilities, direct access to the motorway network and a mainline railway station. The village has an excellent First School and Minehead itself has received much praise recently for its educational results through the Community College.

The property is of mainly stone construction with rendered elevations under a tiled roof and boasts a wealth of character features including exposed beams. It benefits from gas fired central heating and note that the Pound is Grade II Listed as being of historical and architectural interest. The accommodation is arranged as follows:
