Now that's what I call a doer-upper.

On a dog walk in the beautiful village of Mells, near our house in Somerset, I came across this ruin on a patch of land that has no apparent access road.

Surrounded by fields of grazing cattle and swaying crops, as it must be in summer, this once beautiful house (complete with mullioned windows) has one of the most perfect views (seen here via an imperfect photographer).

Mells church and next to it the exquisite home of the Horner family (of Little Jack Horner fame, apparently).

The property comes with enough land to make a perfectly reasonable garden...but really your 'garden' would be the fields on all four sides.

And, of course, dog walks would be so much closer.....
