Description

It is a bit of a clich to say but this really is a charming and quintessentially English Country Cottage, situated in a stunning rural location backing onto open farmland with delightful views. The property which we believe dates back to 1906 and was extended in the 1970's has been subject to improvement by the present owners although it offers the potential for further enhancement and extension if required (subject to any necessary consents). Much of the property's original character has been retained where possible and the accommodation is deceptive from an external perspective. It's all about the location and as mentioned this property is set in a lovely rural setting and the south west facing gardens do form a particular feature of the property that will clearly appeal to those with a keen gardening interest or to those seeking a garden providing lots of outside space for the children to play. To the rear of the property there is a single storey section (currently the utility room) which would lend itself well to development and there is space to the side of the property for a garage with accommodation above if required. Additional benefits include oil fired central heating and recently installed Fibre-to-Property 200Mb Ultrafast Broadband. In brief, the accommodation includes: Entrance Porch and Hallway, Sitting Room, Snug, Kitchen/Dining Room, Utility Room, First Floor Landing with access to the Attic Room via a loft ladder which has in the past been used as home office space. There are four double Bedrooms, a Bathroom and Shower. The property is approached via a gated stone chipped driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles and there is a car port. It is our recommendation to view at an early opportunity as we anticipate strong interest from the outset. Viewings are strictly by appointment through Farrons Estate Agents: 01934 842000.

Location

The property is situated in a quiet rural position within the charming Somerset village of Badgworth where there are a number of fine period houses and cottages, a local village Church and Hall. Badgworth is an active and caring rural community situated a short drive away from the Medieval Town of Axbridge and the villages of Wedmore and Cheddar, each offering a range of amenities and shopping facilities. Being a rural area, there are a range of outdoor pursuits available including golf at the Isle of Wedmore Golf Club, walking, horse riding, mountain biking and fishing. For those with hobbies and interests, there are a number of clubs and societies in the area. The property lies within the school catchment area of Weare Academy First School (with attached pre-school), Hugh Sexey Middle School and The Kings of Wessex Academy in Cheddar with private schooling available at Millfield in Street, the Cathedral School in Wells and Sidcot School near Winscombe.
