and enjoy the wonders of West Somerset
As Taunton grows ever larger and busier with a multitude of new homes springing up like mushrooms on every side of the town, it’s opportune for us to announce the arrival of new recruit to our register that’s a little off the beaten track, a delightful 15 mile drive away, in Williton, just a couple of miles from the rugged West Somerset coastline.
With a magnificent backcloth provided by the Quantock Hills, 2 miles from the historic port of Watchet and 8 miles from glorious Minehead, the gateway to The Exmoor National Park, this quaint little town offers an extremely attractive alternative to the County Town.
Although there may be an occasional need to take advantage of the facilities of a regional town, Williton is well equipped to serve virtually all everyday needs. There’s a supermarket, bakery, delicatessen and garage, also a library, health centre, both primary and secondary schools and if you fancy a pint – a couple of pubs.
Surrounded as it is by the most spectacular scenery in Somerset, this is not only a walkers paradise, it is also midway along the famous privately operated West Somerset Railway line offering marvellous steam engine trips into Minehead at one end and the pretty village of Bishops Lydeard at the other.
For any house hunters out there tempted by the way of life on offer here, our new recruit comes in the form of a modern low budget semi detached house set in a pleasant cul-de-sac a level half mile walk from the town centre. Number 16 Kebbys Farm Close has just been comprehensively refurbished by a respected local builder and is considerably more spacious than a typical new counterpart.
It includes a large lounge, attractively refitted kitchen with a decent sized dining area; upstairs are two double bedrooms and a brand new bathroom suite. To the front and rear are compact, level gardens and the driveway provides ample off road parking for 3 vehicles with a single garage beyond.
It’s priced at £195,000 and with so few properties of this type on the market at present, interest is likely to be keen so early viewing for discerning buyers is strongly advised.
