Description

An excellent opportunity to acquire a charming detached property, set within one of Winscombe's most sought after addresses with delightful views across the surrounding countryside and Mendip Hills beyond. Whilst this extended 1930's built family home has been subject to some improvement over the years, there is huge potential to enhance the property further, including: general modernisation, extension and a loft conversion if required (subject to any planning permission/consent needed). As mentioned, this would make an ideal home for family occupation although given its convenient village position will appeal to a wide range of buyers. The generous accommodation still retains many of the character features associated with this period and includes on the ground floor: Entrance Porch, Reception Hall, Cloakroom, Sitting Room, Lounge, Dining Room, Conservatory and a Kitchen/Breakfast Room. On the first floor, there are four double Bedrooms, Bathroom and an En-Suite Cloakroom to the Main Bedroom. The property is approached via an in and out driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles which in turn leads to the single garage and there are pleasant gardens to the rear. An internal viewing is highly recommended in order to fully appreciate the property, its village location and excellent potential available. Viewing arrangements are exclusively by appointment through Farrons Estate Agents: 01934 842000.
