This period house for auction has origins in the Stuart era and comes with a former shop and bakery. 

The property, on Golden Hill in Wiveliscombe, is believed to date back to the 1600s, with character features such as stained glass and a period bread oven.

The entrance hallway leads into the former bakery, which is a large L-shaped space that includes the feature bread oven. 

From the bakery, a ladder leads up to a loft space, and a door opens into a further storage outbuilding, behind which is the garage.

The property is being sold by Greenslade Taylor Hunt via an in-room and online livestream auction on March 27 2024 at 2pm for a guide price of £300,000. 

The agent commented: “It's a deceptively spacious four bedroom end of terrace house with additional former shop and bakery offering great potential. There is no onward chain.”
