Full description

A charming detached two bedroom character cottage with much loved garden and generous gardens, parking, garage all set with a central no through road village location. EPC Band E.

The property has natural stone elevations to the front with a rendered rear elevation all under a pitched tiled roof. As you would expect the cottage has much charm and character with the benefit of modern features to include recently installed double glazed windows and oil central heating. The ground floor accommodation is centred around a focal sitting/dining room being dual aspect with beautiful bay seating, stairs to the first floor and access to the recently updated fitted kitchen. The high specification kitchen includes ceramic tiled flooring, electric eye level double oven, integrated fridge/freezer, Neff induction hob, Belfast style sink unit with tiled splashback, granite worktops with a comprehensive range of base and wall units with plumbing for white goods. The ground floor accommodation is completed with a most useful rear lobby area providing pedestrian access to the much loved rear gardens and a useful ground floor cloakroom. Stairs to the first floor provide access to two excellent double bedrooms both benefiting from fitted wardrobes and the master bedroom having the luxury of views over the garden and local countryside, the second bedroom also has garden views with a vanity sink unit. Internally the property is completed with a family bathroom suite comprising coloured suite with panelled bath, electric shower over, pedestal sink unit and WC. The property offers much scope for further extension subject to necessary planning consents.

Fold Cottage lies tucked away in a no through road away from any passing traffic within walking distance of village amenities the property. Trent is a particularly sought after and attractive village with a public house, a church and a primary school to its centre while the historic Abbey town of Sherborne and the local regional centre of Yeovil lie within short motoring distance providing an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with a main line station at Sherborne linking directly with London Waterloo while road links are along the A303 joined at Sparkford.

The plot and gardens are a real salient feature of the property with both a pretty front, rear and side garden.

Adjacent to the cottage is a useful area of gravel driveway parking and access to the single garage 2.4m x 4.6m with power and light connected.
