This week, we shine a spotlight on a character cottage located in Bere Lane in Glastonbury, Somerset.

Listed at a guide price of £370,000, this property captures the region's rustic spirit and offers tremendous potential for personalisation and expansion.

Dating back to circa 1840, this terraced, freehold property boasts three bedrooms and one bathroom. The cottage is adorned with a stunning mural by local artists, contributing to the Glastonbury Mural Trail. This one-of-a-kind touch adds a unique aesthetic charm to the property that is sure to entice lovers of art and history alike.

The entrance vestibule, designed with a tile floor, is a functional space where you can store your coats and boots. Venturing further into the home, you find yourself in a commodious kitchen/dining room equipped with a range of wall and base units, an inset stainless steel sink and drainer, and connections for an electric cooker. With its double-glazed windows and doors opening to the rear garden, this room is not just a hub for family meals but also a warm and welcoming space.

The cosy sitting room, complete with a fitted log burner and two front-facing windows, creates the perfect ambience for tranquil evenings. Upstairs, you'll find two double bedrooms, a single bedroom, a family bathroom, and an additional storage space.

The property truly stands out with its generous-sized garden that graces the rear. The garden houses a spacious, insulated summerhouse fitted with light, power, and French doors opening towards the front. Adding to the property's charm is a large attached stone barn, providing an opportunity for development subject to necessary consents.

One of the key advantages of this residence is its strategic location within walking distance to landmarks like Glastonbury Tor, Chalice Well, and the High Street. Offering a delightful view over the Rural Life Museum and the Abbey Grounds, the house situates you right in the heart of the region's cultural landscape.

Complementing its internal features, the property includes a block-paved driveway offering off-road parking for 1-2 cars. The rear garden, enclosed by stone walls and backing onto the Abbey, provides ample space for outdoor activities, with patio and decking areas perfect for al fresco dining.

Overall, this property encapsulates the perfect blend of history, charm, and potential. Its position in one of Somerset's most loved towns makes it an enticing prospect for anyone seeking a home with heart and history.
