Somerset Life asks Tamlyn and Son in Bridgwater about what's hot on the property market this month.
Cream of the Crop
This impressive double-fronted village house onOthery High Street is believed to be Victorian inorigin, with a more recent two-storey extension to the rear. Offered to the marketin extremely good decorative order throughout, the property features spacious andlight accommodation arranged over two floors that is described here in brief:entrance hall, kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, sitting room, rear porch anda cloakroom/w/c on the ground floor; on the first floor are three double bedrooms(the master with a dressing room/study, offering potential for a fourth bedroom),a refitted bath/shower-room/w/c and a separate shower-room/w/c. There is alsoaccess to the loft space, which has been partially converted, providing, we believe,potential for additional accommodation (subject to obtaining the necessaryapprovals). Outside are attractive and well maintained gardens, a double garagewith lean-to external store, a useful workshop/store and parking for severalvehicles. The property further benefits from double glazing and an oil-fired centralheating system. An appointment to view is highly recommended.
This property in Mark offers buyers the opportunity to acquire a developmentproposition with planning approval granted for the refurbishment of afarmhouse, conversion/rebuilding of attached barns into two cottage dwellings,together with the construction of two new detached and two new semidetacheddwellings.Located on the edge of the popular village of Mark, the site has road frontageto Mark Causeway and Poplar Lane. It is Ideally positioned for commuting, as itis approximately two miles from Junction 22 of the M5 and has main line railstations at Highbridge (3 miles), and Weston-super-Mare (6 miles).
Bridgwater is growing. We have all heardabout EDFs plans for a new reactor atHinkley Point and seen the Morrisonsdistribution centre go up, but are thesechanges having a positive effect on thelocal economy and, importantly, thehousing market? At Tamlyns we believethey are, and have already seen anincrease in interest and activity fromprivate and investment buyers alike. Notonly is this having a positive effect andencouraging growth within the townitself, but also in the many villages andrural areas nearby. One such village isWestonzoyland. Currently being builtand due for completion here later thisyear, is a brand new cottage-styledetached residence with gardens, doublegarage, stables, outbuildings andadjoining paddock. We believe theproperty will suit potential purchaserswith a multitude of differentrequirements from equestrian through tothose looking to grow all their own fruitand vegetables and as such recommendan early registration of interest.
