A delightful 3-bedroom cottage is for sale in the Market Place in Nunney, close to the village shop, pub, cafe and Nunney Castle.
In a prime position in Market Square, this stone cottage has generous sized rooms which make the most of the space available.
The front door opens into a small lobby which provides privacy from the street and also keeps in the warmth on winter days.
The lobby leads into the sitting room which runs the width of the house. Windows on either side of the front door ensure that the sitting room is a light space, and the stone fireplace with log burner and the exposed beam give an authentic country cottage atmosphere.
One corner of the sitting room houses a useful storage cupboard and stairs lead up to the first floor from the opposite corner, cleverly maximising the room’s usable space.
The kitchen runs across the back of the cottage, with a rear door leading out to the enclosed garden.
The cream kitchen units, teamed with the light wood worktops and tiled walls and floor emphasise the feeling of space in the kitchen. Two windows look out onto the garden with its vegetable plot and playing field beyond.
Stairs run up to the first floor from the end of the sitting room, tucked neatly away at the end of the cottage. At the top the stairs open out to a landing which leads to three generous bedrooms.
Two double bedrooms at the front of the house have great views over the market place towards the Castle and the river, and have lovely deep window sills and exposed beams.
A third bedroom, which is currently used as a study, faces over the garden to the rear of the cottage. The bathroom is fully tiled and has a white suite, with a shower over the bath.
The cottage leads straight off the market place, and there is space on the road outside to park two cars.
To the rear of the house is a good size garden, the top part of which has recently been put to use as a kitchen garden.
The cottage faces the market square, where there is additional parking.
