Tenure: Freehold

A substantial 5 bedroom former chapel fully modernised and in immaculate condition, offering excellent family accommodation with a beautifully fitted kitchen/breakfast room and with the benefit of adjoining paddocks and stable block, in all about 9.55 acres extending to approximately 4,000 sq ft.

As the name implies, the property was a religious chapel for many years and was the subject of considerable modernization, remodeling and improvement about 9 years ago, at which time it was effectively taken back to its basic structure and then full modernized. Built of rendered elevations under slated roofs, the accommodation extends to about 4,000 sq ft which features an excellent main living room, a superb kitchen/breakfast room with space for family meals as well as a separate dining room and study. There
are excellent additional circulation areas on the ground floor, whilst on the first floor level, five bedrooms are afforded and two bathrooms.
The house is centered on a magnificent reception hall with superb staircase rising to the first floor with gallery overlooking.
Externally there is a useful range of outbuildings ideal for those with work at home needs or strong hobby interests, whilst at a slightly lower level is an excellent stable yard with separate vehicular approach. This land is in effectively two enclosures, the whole
extending to about 9.55 acres, which includes a small area of woodland and wildlife ponds, the arrangement being ideal for those with horses or ponies.

The property is situated on the southern outskirts of the village of West Buckland, some 3 miles from the town of Wellington where a good range of facilities include both primary and secondary schooling, including Wellington sports centre. Taunton, the Count Town, is some 4 miles to the east where representation by most National
retailers will be found together with a main line rail link to London Paddington, three further independent schools, sixth form college and major hospital. The M5 may be joined at Junction 26 about 1 mile from the property. West Buckland lies at the foot of the Blackdown Hills, which are designed as An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and where many fine footpaths are available.

The property is approached over a graveled approach drive with security lighting which opens up into a large gravelled hard standing and turning area immediately to the front of the property with a tarmacadam apron and hard standing for several vehicles. Access afforded to outbuildings to one side. A gravelled driveway which leads to a detached garage with double opening doors (17'10" x 14'6") incorporating a store room and with access to a loft over. Close by is a separate detached store shed (13'7" x 10'9") with light and power connected and with secure store room.
The rear gardens include a pergola and large patio area and are primarily laid to lawn with fence surrounds. A side pedestrian gate gives access to the road.
Separate access is afforded to the southern side of the house which leads to a lower yard area where a block of four stables is present arranged in an L shape with over hand and good concrete yard area and fitted light and water.
Separate access is afforded to a pasture paddock immediately to the north of the house whilst a separate block of land to the south enjoys good road access and includes a small section of woodland and pond in addition.
