Due to the huge amount of interest in this special property it is fairest to accept bids by private tender and there have been two open house viewings already. Sealed bid forms are available from English Homes and should be returned to this office by noon on Monday July 9th 2018. This should give bidders time to arrange for a survey if needed and to be able to evidence finances. We expect to receive bids between £335,000 and £375,000 but may receive them outside this guide range. Evidence of funds is important. There is a private drains septic tank system which drains across a field to a drainage ditch. To the best of our knowledge it is within Environment Agency regulations but bidders should satisfy themselves.

Agent's Note

This home is ideally for someone wanting to get away from it all rather than a person who needs all mod cons immediately. It is very charming and in a delightful, rural location - yet the school bus for Huish Academy goes right past the door. We should point out that there are a few tripping hazards in the garden so take care. We feel that this home is very fairly priced and have received a high level of interest and perhaps a sale at above the guide price. The property will remain fully on the market until the preferred buyer has been able to prove their financial position. Mortgage buyers may have some issues with funds being retained until modernisation is carried out, so cash buyers or those with a substantial deposit would be preferred.
