Property description

LOCATION Misterton in an attractive small village located about 2 miles south east of Crewkerne which has facilities for everyday use including primary school, public house, community hall and parish church.

Crewkerne is nearby where a full range of retail, commercial and educational facilities are to be found, as well as a mainline railway station giving easy access to both Yeovil and Axminster. Yeovil is the nearest major town which is about 8 miles to the north and there is ready access to the A303 trunkroad, again about 7 miles to the north. 

THE PROPERTY This is a small but pretty former Baptist Chapel dating from 1876. It is located fronting the A356 Middle Street, close to the village centre.

The detached property is of traditional construction with stone elevations having brick dressings under a pitched slated roof. To the rear is a modern extension providing ancillary accommodation.

The property is suitable for a continued community use, but would also readily convert to an attractive single residential dwelling or could be used for a variety of commercial purposes subject to planning consent being granted.

The OS plan within the sales particulars shows the extent of the property edged in red for identification. At present there is not any on-site car parking. Partial removal of the railings to the front could provide this
again, subject to permission being granted.
