Tail Mill Lane, Merriott, Somerset, TA16


3 Bedroom End of Terrace House Sold

‘Mill House’ is a simply wonderful, substantial (1904 square feet), double-fronted, period, end-of-terrace house set in a coveted ‘tucked away’ address on the edge of the popular Somerset village of Merriott, near Crewkerne and the mainline railway station to London Waterloo. The house boasts large, level, landscaped front and rear gardens, with the rear garden backing on to fields and boasting a sunny south-facing aspect – plus a good degree of privacy. The gardens and plot extend to a fifth of an acre (0.20 acres approximately). The garden comes with large summer house and a garden room with retractable roof – ideal for a hot tub! There is private driveway parking for four cars leading to a further enclosed, gated driveway area – ideal for storing a caravan or campervan. The house offers tremendous scope for further extension at the rear and side, subject to the necessary planning permission. It is enviably free from the restrictions of Grade II listing. The house is in very good decorative condition throughout with period features including excellent ceiling heights, exposed beams and multi-pane windows. The property is heated via a mains gas-fired radiator central heating system and has some period-style double glazing. The well-arranged accommodation is deceptively spacious and boasts good levels of natural light, comprising entrance reception hall, sitting room, dining room, rear hall, kitchen / breakfast room, utility room and ground floor shower room / WC. On the first floor, there is a landing area, three generous double bedrooms and a large family bathroom. There are great dog walks from nearby the front door. Merriott is an active village with amenities, including a Co-op, a public house, filling station/post office, pharmacy, primary school, church and playing fields. The village also boasts 'The Feed Station' - a fantastic restaurant and coffee shop formed out of a Grade II listed Sunday School building - offering superb food and drinks. The market town of Crewkerne is just over two miles south, which offers a good range of amenities including a Waitrose store, post office, library, building society, day centre, leisure centre with swimming pool and gym, doctor's surgery, hospital, dentists, a variety of schools and nurseries, other professional services and many social and sporting activities. A mainline rail service to London Waterloo (2½ hours) is available from the town's station. This lovely property is perfect for those aspiring couples or families looking for the ideal village home, cash rich buyers looking for somewhere to settle in this exceptional area or as a pied-a-terre, investors looking for holiday lets or residential buy-to-let investments. THIS SUPERB HOME MUST BE VIEWED INTERNALLY TO BE FULLY APPRECIATED.
