Opulent five bedroom Georgian townhouse, that provides generous living accommodation over four floors and a superb South facing rear garden. The property is a fine example of its period, having been lovingly cared for and updated throughout by the present owner.
The village of Cross is a small picturesque Somerset village which nestles at the foot of Wavering Down and Crook Peak, being a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. The village itself has two superb Public Houses and is close by to the charming Market Town of Axbridge. Whilst there is much evidence of rebuilding and re-facing of buildings in Axbridge in the 18th and 19th centuries, the heart of Axbridge has changed little and it retains a number of early listed buildings in the Square and lining the main streets. The Square still has the feel of a marketplace today. There are shops and places to eat and drink including: Post Office, The Lamb Inn, The Oak House Hotel, General Stores, Primary School, Doctors Surgery and Church. There are a range of leisure activities in the area including: Unrivalled horse riding and walking on the Mendip Hills, sailing and fishing on the Cheddar Reservoir and Chew Valley Lakes and Dry Slope Skiing in Churchill.
From Winscombe village centre and with Farrons office on the right, proceed to the junction with Woodborough Road and continue straight ahead up through the village. Follow the road through a sharp left hand bend onto Sidcot Lane and proceed to the traffic lights. Turn right onto the Bridgwater Road (A38) and continue for approximately 2 miles. At the bottom of Shute Shelve Hill turn right onto Old Coach Road, and the property will then shortly be found on your left-hand side.
