38.1m (125ft 0in) x 11.58m (38ft 0in)
An excellent opportunity to acquire a pretty stone built period cottage situated in an enviable semi rural location with delightful views across the surrounding countryside and Mendip Hills beyond. Although the property was extended, we believe in the 1970's, it does require modernisation throughout and offers ample potential for further extension if required (subject to any necessary planning permission and consent). The property benefits from an oil fired central heating system installed approximately 2 years ago and large gardens, the rear garden measuring some 38.1m (125ft) x 11.58m (38ft). This property will clearly appeal to those buyers who seek to design and create a property to suite their own style, tastes and lifestyle and who want to live in a rural setting within easy reach of the village centre and amenities. In brief, the accommodation comprises: Entrance Hall, Bathroom, Sitting/Dining Room, Kitchen, Utility Room, First Floor Landing and 3 Bedrooms. Outside, there are mature gardens to the front, side and rear that will appeal to those with a keen gardening interest. Early viewing is advised as we anticipate considerable interest from the outset and is strictly by appointment only.

Situated in a delightful semi rural location at the end of a single track lane serving just a handful of properties on the edge of Winscombe.

Winscombe is close to the Mendip Hills and is surrounded by beautiful countryside, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, providing excellent riding and walking opportunities.

The popular Churchill Academy with Sixth Form Centre is within 3 miles which also benefits from a Sports Centre and Swimming Pool.

Winscombe is ideally situated for the commuter and is convenient to Bristol, Bath, Wells and the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare.
