FANCY owning a historic property at the heart of one of Somerset's most picturesque villages - for an estimated cost of UNDER £200,000?

Well, you could soon be taking the keys for just that, as a four-bedroom character cottage in Dunster's High Street is going under the hammer next month.

The house, at 10 High Street, in the medieval village has a freehold guide price of £125,000 to £150,000.

It is among the lots listed in the third sale of 2019 by the regional land and property auctioneers Clive Emson taking place on May 2.

Auction valuer, Audrey Smith, said: "This is a spacious character cottage with views of the famous Dove Cote.

"As well as being located in the centre of this historic village within the Exmoor National Park, it is only a few paces from Conygar Tower, Dunster Castle and the Yarn Market.

"Somerset's primary seaside resort of Minehead is only a few miles away too.

"Once updated it would make a lovely family home or even be suitable for letting out either to tenants or visitors."

Starting at 11am, the third of Clive Emson Auctioneers' regional West Country auctions in 2019 takes place at the St Mellion International Resort, St Mellion, Cornwall, on Thursday May 2, 2019.

It is also celebrating its 30th anniversary year with a new fixed date, online only auction - this month ending on May 9.
