Houses from the past offer buyers the chance to build a future in Radstock
TWO elegant homes built almost a century ago are offering house hunters a chance to make some history of their own in Somerset.
Full of character and charm, the unique homes are amongst the largest in the picturesque town of Radstock and have already prompted interest from local purchasers.
Offering a number of unique features, including turrets and a drawing room, the 1920s homes are complemented by expansive grounds, imposing architecture and a wealth of rooms inside.
Both houses are in need of some love and affection but could make a superb project for those looking to take advantage of their fantastic location, design character and competitive price-tags.
Large four-bedroom homes, each with 1,800 square feet inside, Sunny Ridge and Tower Hurst are priced at £395,000 and £399,995 respectively and have great potential to add value
Each home has the potential for a triple garage and at Sunny Ridge there is a large attic which could be converted.
Situated just off Well Road, and now at the front of a small and exclusive new development in Radstock, the homes enjoy easy access to Bath and Bristol and share stunning views over the Mendip Hills.
With a generous garden and enviable views over the surrounding countryside Tower Hurst, the more maintained of the two, offers residents three fine reception rooms, an inner hall, a drawing room and four large bedrooms.
Meanwhile Sunny Ridge, a home ready to make an impression, boasts imposing architecture, with an entrance hall and living room full of character and style.
Andrew Willis, at Allen and Harris estate agents in Bath, explains: “It’s not every day that two homes like this come onto the market at the same time. With some landscape work done to the gardens, some refurbishment inside and some new furnishings and fittings, the houses could be transformed into enviable family homes within a short period of time.
“Situated in one of Somerset’s most sought-after towns, and with full double glazing installed throughout, these are homes with so much potential.
“With a bit of care and attention, we really believe both homes have the potential to command a much higher price tag following restoration – especially as UK house prices continue to rise.”
Close to the Wiltshire border, the homes offer fantastic transport links and easy access to some excellent school nearby. The perfect location for families, Memorial Park and Tom Huyton Park provide places to relax for children to play and there are also plenty of cycle and walking trails in the vicinity.
