Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A superbly presented and highly desirable 7 bedroom detached period property in a highly sought after location set in approaching 3/4 acre. EPC: Band E

Dating from the 1920’s this imposing detached house is arguably one of the finest properties within the town boasting almost 3500ft2 of accommodation. Located on the highly desirable Touchstone Lane the property enjoys views over the town towards Windwhistle Hill. The current owners have been in residence since 2006 and have carried out an extensive programme of refurbishment and maintenance ensuring that the property is presented in excellent condition throughout. A non-exhaustive list of the internal work carried out includes; a re-modelled and extended kitchen with granite worktops in 2018; updated utility room in 2019; a new gas fired central heating system and boiler in 2006; updated wiring in 2006 with an updated consumer unit in 2018; updated, contemporary bathrooms in 2018 and a fabulous stained glass window on the landing and stairway. Highfield has retained many of its original features with herringbone tiled flooring, refurbished antique radiators, plate racks in many internal rooms and original fireplaces. The fabric of the building has also been well looked after with extensive damp proofing work carried out, replacement doors and windows and the property has been recently painted to look its best for the new owner. The generous accommodation briefly comprises of a kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room with a glorious bay window, dining room with French doors opening out to the garden, utility room and cloakroom to the ground floor. The first floor provides 5 bedrooms (2 with en-suites) and a family bathroom with a further 2 bedrooms and 2 attic rooms on the second floor. The versatile accommodation could suit a variety of uses including potential for a spacious self-contained annexe on the first floor.

The property is accessed from the street through wrought iron automated double gates with a sweeping driveway leading up to the front of the house. The drive and parking area was resurfaced in 2016 with new tarmac laid with block paver detail. An area of lawn separates the garage from the road with a large, well-kept hedge for privacy. The larger than average double garage allows for secure parking and storage with an adjoining store room, as shown on our plans. The garden underwent a formal landscaping scheme in 2016, at the same time as the drive, including a magnificent patio with built in remote controlled lighting, creating a wonderful place to sit and relax whilst looking over the gardens. The gardens are well planted with a plethora of mature trees including eucalyptus and maple. Slate paths lead through a central pergola and over the lightly terraced grounds. The entire plot extends to approximately 0.7 acres making it one of the largest garden plots within Chard. Mature hedging and attractive flint stone walls fully enclose the gardens.
This remarkable and unique property must really be viewed to be appreciated.

Touchstone Lane is one of Chard's most sought after residential locations set on the western outskirts of the town but within walking distance of both open countryside and the town centre. Chard is well served with a wide range of amenities including a choice of major supermarkets, smaller retailers, banks, educational and leisure facilities. The County town of Taunton is some 14 miles to the North with access to the M5 motorway and intercity rail service (London Paddington) and the Dorset Jurassic Coast a similar distance to the South at Lyme Regis.
