Our property section is full of great homes in the Glastonbury area.

Here is our top pick for the week:

Five-bedroom period cottage, with an annexe and workshop, in Sub Road, Butleigh, offered for sale by Heritage Estates.

Orchard Lea is a beautiful five-bedroom cottage with character and still has some period features - it is believed to go back as far as the 18th century and is set in the beautiful village of Butleigh.

The main cottage offers you a large porch, reception hallway, shower room, dining room, snug, sitting room, breakfast room, and kitchen with small utility area.

As you go upstairs you will find three double bedrooms (all have wash basins), two single bedrooms and a family bathroom with a shower over the bath (corner style).

The front of the annexe

Outside you will find Orchard Lea Cottage (annexe) which has a good sized entrance hall, kitchen/breakfast room, utility area, sitting room, bathroom and double bedroom, plus oil central heating.

The boiler house has boilers for both houses. There is a workshop with electric, and a large garage with electric that is covered by a beautiful pink/white magnolia tree when in bloom.

There are various lawns with mature shrubs and lots of spring bulbs, flower beds, a couple of good sized vegetable plots for those of you who have the knack, plus a fish pond near the back of the kitchen area.

The ground cover approximately 0.6 acres and are westerly facing, and that is not forgetting plenty of parking too.

Both properties are currently tenanted. Orchard Lea Cottage (the annexe) provides you with the opportunity to run it as a rental property or holiday let and it is registered under its own council tax band.

Viewing is highly recommended - Orchard Lea has always been a family property, and some updating is required throughout. It has been recently painted inside and out.
