This is an increasingly rare opportunity to acquire a substantial detached house at the very edge of this highly desirable Polden village, affording enormous potential to further enhance the accommodation and taking in wonderful far reaching views across neighbouring countryside extending towards the Mendip Hill range in the distance. The property further boasts a large plot with gardens predominantly lying to the rear, in all approaching 0.7acres and with scope for enlarging the house subject to necessary planning consents. The property is likely to require full internal and external refurbishment and may have some structural issues that require addressing.
