Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A spacious 4/5 bedroom detached house with a beautiful garden and close to amenities. EPC: Band E

Believed to date from the 1960s the property was originally built by the council as a warden’s home and as a result the house sits as the only house amongst bungalows in the nearby vicinity. The total accommodation offers approximately 1600 square feet of usable space with 4/5 bedrooms making it a perfect family house and situated only a short walk from the nearby school. The ground floor would also make suitable accommodation for a dependant relative with the combination of the ground floor bedroom and bathroom. The current owners have happily lived here but relocation forces the hand to sell. The accommodation briefly comprises of a kitchen, living/dining room, snug/bedroom 5, conservatory and bathroom on the ground floor with 4 bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor. The heating is provided by a gas fired boiler and double glazing has been installed.
To the front of the property is a generous area of lawn with a paved path with brick edging leading to the front door. The area is bound to one side by a low hedge with an herbaceous border and an attractive acer. An adjacent concrete hardstanding provides off road parking for several vehicles and another area of lawn leads to a side access gate providing access to the rear. The rear garden has been made as easy to maintain as possible whilst keeping as much greenery and colour as possible. The garden is split between an area of lawn and a large crazy paved patio with both raised and sunken ponds. Raised flowerbeds provide plenty of colour with a mixture of flowers, shrubs and bushes. There is also a productive vegetable garden with runner beans, lettuce, beetroot and carrots to name but a few and a greenhouse producing tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers. There is also the benefit of a useful garden shed measuring 18’ (max) by 8’ (max). The garden must really be viewed to be appreciated.

This quiet cul de sac on the Eastern side of Chard is a short walk from the local Tesco store and about half a mile distant from the town centre, offering a good range of amenities including a choice of major supermarkets, smaller retailers, educational and leisure facilities. The County Town of Taunton is just 14 miles to the North, with easy access to the M5 and intercity rail service (London Paddington) whilst the small town of Crewkerne, just 7 miles away also offers a mainline rail connection and a Waitrose supermarket. The World Heritage Jurassic Coast is some 14 miles to the South at Lyme Regis with its famed Cobb Harbour.
