Couple of easier-on-the-eye renovations for you today. More updating than rebuilding, and heading south rather than my usual all points North.
The three-bed detached house above and below is at Mudgley, in rural Somerset and close to Wells.
Fair View is a handsome house with a good-size garden and fab views across to Glastonbury Tor.
Light, bright rooms with lots of original features (although the bathroom is downstairs) and plenty of space outside to extend.
The lack of wreck-iness is reflected in the price - on the market through Killens at £360k. Details and more pictures here and here.
In a similar vein is this detached cottage at Owls Green, just outside Dennington village, in Suffolk.
Three bedrooms (and an upstairs bathroom - yay!), kitchen/diner and sitting room.
As with Fair View house, the White House is reasonable driving distance from mainline stations to London (depending on your commuting parameters that is).
While not quite so pretty on the inside, the White House comes with more land - half an acre of gardens, plus this cartlodge:
The timber frame cartlodge comes with an overage (claw back) clause which says that if you turn it into a second property at any time in the next 30 years, you pay some of the consequent uplift/profit to White House's current owners.
On the market through Clark & Simpson at £350k. Details and more pictures here and here.
