Dating from the mid 1980's, Osprey was individually designed and built for a local doctor and is traditionally constructed with elevations of buff split brick set beneath a tiled roof, the whole house has a feeling of light and space with flexible and beautifully presented accommodation throughout, with the focal point being a superb open plan sitting and dining room with central chimney and inset multifuel stove. This in turn leads to a superb West facing conservatory overlooking the mature well stocked gardens. From the sitting room, stairs drop down to the recently fitted Spillers kitchen with a comprehensive range of units and separate utility room off. The master bedroom with en-suite bathroom is located at first floor level with three further bedrooms and family bathroom on the ground floor. There is ample parking together with an excellent double garage and a beautifully planted garden, extending in all to approximately 0.4 Acre.

Osprey enjoys a private semi elevated position on the western edge of Chard within easy reach of the town centre and very close to some glorious open countryside close to the border with Devon and Dorset. Chard offers a wide range of day to day amenities, including a choice of major supermarkets, smaller retailers, educational and leisure facilities. The County Town of Taunton is some 14 miles to the North providing excellent retail and commercial opportunities, together with a wide choice of schools and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast is a similar distance to the South at Lyme Regis. Other nearby towns including Axminster, Crewkerne and Ilminster, again with a wide range of amenities and an intercity rail service (London Waterloo). Both the M5 and A303 trunk routes are easily accessible and there are international airports at Bristol or Exeter.

The property is approached from Touchstone Lane over a joint tarmac driveway that then splits in two providing Osprey with ample parking and leading to a detached Double Garage 16'4 x 16'4 with automatic up and over door, ½ glazed personal door, light, power and loft storage. The front garden is mainly lawned with shrubs and specimen trees and a gate which gives access to a fully enclosed South facing kitchen garden with soft fruit and vegetable beds.
