Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A detached period property situated in the small hamlet of Leigh Common which lies conveniently off the A303 and just a short drive from the popular towns of Bruton and Wincanton. The property is set within a large garden and offers great potential for extending the living accommodation to create a home to your own taste and style. Although the cottage was originally built with two bedrooms the current owner removed a partition wall to create one large room. If desired, the wall could easily be reinstated to provide an extra bedroom. A wide driveway gives rear vehicular access and could provide potential for an annexe or additional dwelling (subject to planning). There are numerous timber outbuildings within the garden including a large garage/workshop and car port.

LOCATION: Leigh Common is a small hamlet situated within a short drive of Wincanton. The town of Wincanton is an appealing South Somerset town bordering the counties of Dorset and Wiltshire. Local amenities including a Co-Op supermarket, butcher, bakery, fruit and veg and whole foods shop, Post Office, library, antique shops, cafes, eateries, the Bootmakers Workshop with crafts for both children and adults with a wood-fired pizza and a leisure centre with gym and swimming pool.

The town is a 10 minute drive from the fantastic offerings of Bruton including the Hauser & Wirth Art Gallery and Roth Bar & Grill, 10 minutes from the impressive highly-regarded Newt Hotel, 15 minutes from the pretty market town of Castle Cary and 20 minutes from the attractive Dorset town of Sherborne. It is also close to the A303 for an easy drive to/from London (approx 2 hours drive) and Berry's coaches which operates a twice daily service to London. Other local attractions are a number of National Trust properties including Stourhead and approximately an hour's drive from the beautiful Dorset coastline featuring some of the best beaches in the country. There is a Waitrose 10 minutes away in Gillingham or at Sherborne and an excellent local farm shop and restaurant at Kimbers (5 minutes away).
