  • Period country cottage 3 bed semi
  • Secluded rural location on a very quiet lane
  • Large garden, overlooks fields, garages
  • Oil central heating
  • Grade ll Listed
  • Needs renovating throughout ... but worth doing!

A handsome but tired period cottage of stone elevations under a tiled roof, generous garden, idyllic rural location on a very quiet no through road. 3 bedrooms, 2 receptions, garages, semi-detached. Overlooks fields, oil central heating, fireplace. Grade ll Listed semi detached, the location surely justifies the cost of renovating this cottage throughout. Probably early 19th century and opposite the old courthouse, set in a lane that time forgot.

Front garden
There is no front garden, this cottage is directly onto a classical rural English country lane which quickly peters out into fields. There is virtually no traffic. A gate beside the cottage leads to the garden

98' 5'' x 75' 6'' (30m x 23m) appx
Facing south and west the generous sized garden is attractive, largely laid to lawn with several trees, shrubs, a small pond and the plastic oil tank

Garages and parking
There are two single garages (both in need of repair) with further parking in front of them. A roof is of fibre cement so may well contain asbestos fibres. NB the neighbour at No 1 has a vehicular right of way to cross the drive in order to access their garage and parking.

Septic tank
These cottages are rural so not on mains drains or gas. It is served by a septic tank located down the lane past the old courthouse. The tank is shared with No 1 Abbey Cottage and the Old Courthouse. It is emptied annually and the cost shared between the properties. The tank is located some 250 yards from a watercourse and if full of water does overflow to the watercourse so may not meet current regulations. If it turns out to not be compliant then we suggest that the purchaser install a new sewage treatment plant in a location of their choice (end of the garden?) and negotiate an allowance off the agreed price for this work.

This property is not known to have ever flooded and it has been here for some 500 years. In the extreme floods of 2013/2014 a nearby (and much lower) lane to the fields did flood and the waters came over the septic tank. Since then the Environment Agency has spent millions in local flood defence work and local roads were raised where they had been affected. It is therefore considered unlikely that floods will again be more than a temporary inconvenience on some roads. If this cottage were deemed to be at risk of flood we would say so.

Agents Notes
This period cottage is in a great location but it now deserves a thorough renovation. You would need to budget for the usual floor coverings, bathroom and kitchen of course. In addition we can see that the fusebox is old, so is the boiler. The windows all need attention or replacement. Some tiles have slipped and we can see water stains in places on the ceiling. Septic tanks do halve the Wessex Water bill but this one is not the newest so may need attention eventually. However it is in a superb location if you seek the quiet rural life that only a small rural hamlet can provide. The organic farm shop is a walk away and is on the school bus route. It is a cycle ride to either Langport (a busy market town) or Kingsbury Episcopi (arguably the most desirable thriving village community in the area). A very special location.
