This charming terraced cottage is situated centrally within the village of Shipham and is close to the beautiful parish church of St Leonard's plus the amenities within The Square.
The accommodation is deceptively spacious. On the ground floor there is a light and bright sitting room with double glazed bay window overlooking the green and with a fire place that is presently gas fired but which offers potential for an open fire or wood burning stove if desired, and an extended kitchen/dining room with plenty of space for a table and chairs. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a modern re-fitted shower room. Modern conveniences include gas fired central heating and some replacement double glazed windows. Externally there are almost equal sized gardens to the front and rear, with the rear garden being laid to paving for easy maintenance and offering a good degree of privacy.
All in all, this is a very appealing property with some nice original features and whilst offered in what appears to be a nicely maintained order it does offer some scope for modernisation and improvement for keen DIY enthusiasts. It is also offered with the added attraction of no onward chain complications so an internal viewing is very much recommended to fully appreciate all it has to offer.

OUTSIDE The cottage is approached via a wrought iron gate which opens onto a good size front courtyard garden. It is laid entirely to low maintenance paving and is fully enclosed on all boundaries with a low wall. At the rear there is a fairly modest courtyard garden which is low maintenance, but which retains a good level of privacy - perfect for al fresco dining. It is again laid mainly paved but there is a nicely planted and raised stone flower bed to one side which softens the hard landscaping. Both garden areas are perfect for containers, pots, tubs etc and with a little imagination, could be a real asset to the cottage.
