Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Unique opportunity to acquire an individual detached split level property set in a large private plot on the outskirts of Chard. Originally built to a very high standard. Large Double Garage that could be converted. Viewing recommended. EPC: Band D

Individually designed and built in the 1980's to a then exacting specification, Merrivale offers prospective purchasers the opportunity to upgrade this unique property to suit their own personal taste. Traditionally built with reconstructed stone elevations set beneath a tiled roof, the house enjoys the benefit of sealed unit double glazing and central heating but now requires some updating to meet 21st Century standards. The accommodation is exceptionally well proportioned providing an entrance hallway with stairs rising to a mezzanine landing which leads to a triple aspect sitting room overlooking the garden, kitchen with utility room and cloakroom adjacent, and then further stairs to two exceptionally generous bedrooms, one en-suite and a bathroom. For those with hobbies or the need for extra storage, there is a large integral double garage and store room, together with further driveway parking. The private and well established gardens include an attached greenhouse complete with grapevine. Properties like this are rare indeed and early viewing is highly recommended.

The property occupies a particularly secluded location down a small private road on the South East side of Chard, about ½ mile from the main town centre and within walking distance of open countryside. Chard offers a wide range of amenities with a choice of major supermarkets, smaller retailers, medical and leisure facilities. The County Town of Taunton is some 14 miles to the North with an intercity rail service (London Paddington) and access to the M5 motorway whilst the World Heritage Jurassic Coast is a similar distance to the South at Lyme Regis.

Gravelled and concrete driveway leading to a wide parking area and superb Double Garage with twin up and over doors, light, power, wall mounted gas fired boiler for central heating and hot water and further Store Room. The gardens lie mainly on three sides, with extensive lawns, a wealth of mature shrubs and trees, south facing terrace with wisteria and fine attached Greenhouse with grapevine, power and water.
