thatched cottage

"A charming cottage in a lovely area"

Last marketed in 1999, this cottage is the quintessential "chocolate box" property and it could now be yours!

Nestled in the sweet village of East Coker, this home was built sometime between 1650-1700. The current resident has been a proud custodian of this Grade 2 listed home, keeping it in fantastic condition. The listing has been a source of reassurance as it has ensured the look and feel of the whole area is maintained. The local conservation officer, Greg Venn, is approachable and pleasant with any queries that have arisen. The owner is sad to leave but the time has come to move into a bungalow.

Named after an Estate Shepherd, the cottage is constructed of golden hamstone, characteristic of the area and quarried from nearby Ham Hill. The thatched roof is a piece de resistance and has been regularly maintained. The ridge and front are booked in for December to ensure it's in perfect condition for the next owner to enjoy it. Inside are the original beams and a inglenook fireplace, perfect for the coming winter evenings.
