DESCRIPTION Little Batch is a delightful and charming semi-detached cottage occupying an established location in the heart of the Conservation Area of this popular village, close to the primary school, church, pub and lake, renowned for its fly fishing. The cottage, which has deeds dating back to the 18th century, still retains many period features, including an inglenook fireplace and flagstone floors, and has provided a much loved family home for our current vendors for the past 50 years. Originally two cottages, the property has been extended in the past and would now benefit from some modernisation in places. The charming and spacious accommodation is very versatile, and with two staircases it would also lend itself to possible dual occupancy. The property also incorporates good size cottage style front and rear gardens, with many established plants, two small stone storage sheds (former privies) and views over Blagdon lake. EPC rating E.


DIRECTIONS Travelling through Blagdon on the A368 towards Ubley turn left at the primary school into Church Street. At the bottom of the street turn right into Grib Lane and the property can be found immediately in front of you with a Debbie Fortune Estate Agents' For Sale Board.

OUR VENDOR SAYS Our parents fell in love with the cottage the moment they saw it. For a cottage it was remarkably light and airy and it has provided a much loved family home for the past 50 years. The location is convenient for local amenities, and in the heart of a vibrant, friendly community, with stunning views and walks just minutes from the front door! 

WE HAVE NOTICED If you are looking for a charming character cottage with potential in a lovely community village then look no further. Although the property is very liveable it would benefit from some updating. With lots of charm, the versatile layout also gives opportunity for possible dual occupancy.
