An interesting semi-detached cottage style bungalow tucked away in a hidden location just a short walk from the centre of Mere. Although the property requires refurbishment there is a wonderful opportunity to create a unique home which benefits from a long driveway and attractive courtyard style garden. The living room is a particular feature being light and airy with a high ceiling. There is also a shower room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a box room. This hidden gem would be an ideal first time buy, retirement property or weekend retreat with potential for Airbnb.
LOCATION: Mere is an attractive small Wiltshire town nestling under chalk downs. It has a surprisingly good range of facilities including two supermarkets, shops, bank, post office, doctors’ and dental surgeries, schools, inns and churches of various denominations. The centre of Mere is designated a Conservation Area in which a strict planning policy operates to preserve its special character. The town contains many handsome stone buildings. The surrounding country is most attractive with access to both rolling downland and pasture. Larger towns in the area include Gillingham with an excellent secondary school enjoying a good reputation, Shaftesbury, Wincanton and Warminster. There is a main railway station at Gillingham which is 10 minutes drive away with services to London (Waterloo 2 hours) and Exeter whilst the A303, which links with the M3, provides east-west road travel.
