Tenure: Freehold

Detached chalet style bungalow in a superb location set in grounds of approx 0.38 Acre. This fine property enjoys a great setting within this village and will be ideal for those purchasers who wish to add their own personal touch due to the modernisation required. EPC: Band E

Built in 1967 to a then exacting specification by a well known local builder for his own occupation, the property enjoys many individual features but has now come to a point where upgrading or refitting is required. Set on an elevated site of just over a third of an acre, this offers purchasers an excellent opportunity to create a quality home fit for 21st Century living. Traditionally built of reconstructed stone elevations set beneath a tiled main roof, the bungalow enjoys a coal fired underfloor heating system to the ground floor with radiators to the first floor, oak strip flooring to hall and lounge/dining room and a large integral garage, offering conversion potential. Currently the accommodation provides a wide hallway, generous living room, well proportioned kitchen with utility and conservatory off, two double bedrooms and a bathroom to the ground floor. A Slingsby sliding wooden staircase gives access to the first floor with two further double bedrooms and excellent storage areas. Many of the rooms have far reaching country views although currently somewhat impeded by overgrown shrubs. The garden extends to an estimated 0.38 Acre, formerly well stocked and tended but now somewhat neglected. Restored to its former glory it will make a perfect setting for this unique property.

The property enjoys an elevated position, approximately 550' above sea level, tucked away on the edge of the village of Howley which, in turn, is located on the Southern edge of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a tranquil, unspoilt landscape on the Somerset/Devon borders. There is a popular pub within walking distance and the nearby villages of Yarcombe and Combe St Nicholas both enjoy thriving community activities. The market towns of Chard and Honiton, some 4 miles and 12 miles distant respectively, offer a wide range of amenities including a choice of major supermarkets, specialist retailers, educational and leisure facilities. The County Town of Taunton is some 12 miles to the North with intercity rail service and easy access to the M5 motorway and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast is about 16 miles to the South.

The property is approached from the lane over a driveway leading to the integral Double Garage 25' x 10'9 with roller door, power, light and solid fuel boiler supplying hot water and central heating.

The gardens and grounds are currently a little neglected but are set mainly on three sides of the property and are well established with a wealth of mature trees and shrubs, extensive lawned areas and fruit trees. The whole plot extends to an estimated 0.38 Acre and enjoys far reaching rural views across the surrounding countryside towards the Blackdown Hills.
