Description

A splendid two-bedroom period cottage situated in a peaceful lane within the village of Pilton. This attractive cottage retains many original character features and an exciting refurbishment opportunity with potential to extend subject to planning permission. Ample parking and garden.

Accommodation

The accommodation in this charming cottage truly does not disappoint and offers exceptional potential throughout. Upon entry of this period home you are greeted by a rather spacious living area with traditional stone wall with an electric fireplace. The living room also boasts a double aspect with door opening into the side garden. There is a second reception room on the other side of the stairs which is currently used as a downstairs bedroom, however, would make an excellent cosy dining room/second living room. This room benefits from a feature fireplace with exposed stone, a lovely view of the garden and access to a utility area which has plumbing for white goods. To the rear of the cottage there is a galley kitchen, and a well-appointed downstairs shower room.
To the first floor you will find two good size double bedrooms alongside an upstairs WC.

Grounds & Gardens

Outside the property is enclosed by a stone wall and approached by a gate which provides access to the tarmac drive where there is ample parking. There is a gravelled area to the side which would make a great space to entertain. Furthermore, there is a small garden to the side which is mainly laid to lawn.
In addition to the front of the property there is an outhouse with carport which has the potential to be converted into a separate space or could potentially be used to increase the footage of the current house subject to the relevant planning permission.
As you can see this property is in need of modernisation but has the potential to make a stunning home. The property will be offered to sell with no onward chain.
