Agent's Note
This very appealing period home is in a delightful location and whilst perfectly livable as is, most will feel that it now deserves a programme of general modernising. We feel that the guide price reflects the likely cost of updating.

Close to the thriving market town of Somerton, Kingsdon is a highly desired village due in part to its excellent pub, green and village shop (a community enterprise) cricket pitch. It is very conveniently placed with very good road links to the A303 and M5.

From Langport take the A372 going through Long Sutton and Catsgore. Turn left on the B3151 signposted to Street/Somerton. Take the first right into the village along Top Street. The third turn on the right takes you past the shop and the triangle. Carry on down the hill and after a sharp bend there is a driveway on your right opposite Middle Street. The property is to be found at the top of the drive indicated by an English Homes for sale board.
