The Property - Knapp Cottage is a rare example of a property which offers the best of both worlds in more ways than one. Firstly, the owners of such charming thatched homes typically sacrifice easy proximity to town amenities when seeking chocolate-box cottages, which are more commonly found in rural areas, but at Knapp Cottage a range of amenities are within walking distance with the town centre just 1 mile distant. However, the property enjoys a tucked-away position within a small cul-de-sac, giving a superb sense of separation from Preston Road. Inside, the property offers the very best of old and new; contemporary fittings and a vibrant scheme of decoration are dovetailed with character features such a exposed beams and fireplaces in two of the reception rooms. With spacious, well proportioned rooms throughout and a generous, private rear garden, Knapp Cottage represents a fantastic opportunity to achieve a wonderful cottage lifestyle with the added benefits of modern conveniences and proximity to amenities.

Internally, the accommodation is laid out in a simple, classical layout with a sociable emphasis. The sitting and dining rooms are ideal for their respective purposes, ensuring that the perfect environment is available for everyday family enjoyment, informal entertaining and special occasions alike. Offering a seamless transition of indoor/outdoor living, the conservatory has been a useful addition to the original footprint of the cottage, providing a third reception room with an attractive outlook and double doors leading directly to the rear garden. One room which particularly retains the cottage appeal is the kitchen, in which wooden units and a brick Inglenook create a Farmhouse atmosphere. Domestically, plumbing for laundry facilities can be found in a utility cupboard adjoining the kitchen, and there is also a ground floor cloakroom, ensuring that the requirements of the busy modern family are effortlessly met.

From the entrance hallway, stairs rise to the first floor landing from which each of the 4 bedrooms can be accessed, along with the family shower room, a separate WC and a linen cupboard. The master bedroom is of particular note; with generous double proportions, two built in wardrobes and the luxury of a free-standing bath tub and wash hand basin, this fabulous bedroom is perfect for those with children or expecting regular guests. The three remaining bedrooms include two further doubles and a large single/occasional double, providing excellent space for a growing family.

Outside - Unusually for properties so conveniently located for town amenities, Knapp Cottage enjoys a generous rear garden which measures just under 0.2 of an acre. Benefitting from a private, south facing aspect, the rear garden is primarily laid to level lawn with a mature apple tree, suggesting the opportunity for further landscaping to suit a variety of outdoor lifestyles.
 
The property further benefits from an attached garage with wooden double doors, in front of which is off road parking for 2 vehicles.

Situation - The property is situated in an accessible yet tucked away cul-de-sac location within Yeovil Town, and therefore enjoys excellent proximity to a broad range of amenities including a choice of supermarkets, town centre and out-of town shops and restaurants and schools for children of all ages.
 
Transport links are easily accessible, with the A30 and A37 main roads passing through Yeovil and the A303 trunk road nearby. Train stations within Yeovil offer regular rail services to a variety of destinations including London (Waterloo) and Exeter from Yeovil Junction and Bristol and Bath from Yeovil Pen Mill.
