Property description

An outstanding Grade II Listed detached period house set in an elevated semi rural location close to a sought after village and benefiting from a useful outbuilding with consent to create ancillary accommodation and grounds that extend to 1.58 Acres.

Willhayne House is an imposing period property believed to date from 16th Century and offered to the market for the first time in over 30 years. Robustly built with rendered elevations set beneath a thatched roof, the house combines all the best of a wonderful family home of character with modern living. The accommodation is comfortable and conveniently laid out with features that include leaded iron casement windows, magnificent cruck trusses and exposed beams, flagsotne flooring and inglenook fireplaces. There are three lovely reception rooms all with an open aspect over traditional countryside, a farmhouse kitchen with Aga and the ground floor is completed by a small music room, cloakroom and utility. In addition to a wealth of fine exposed timberwork, there is extensive oak flooring to both ground and first floor. The master suite is a superb high ceilinged room with massive cruck beams, views over open land and an en-suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms, one of which is currently in use as a study, and a family bathroom. Oil fired central heating is installed and the open fireplaces are fitted with gas (LPG) 'log burners'. For those requiring additional accommodation, a planning application was granted in 2018 for the conversion of the double garage/workshop, ref 6504776.

The gardens and grounds extend in all to an estimated 1.58 Acre and are a mix of formal and informal areas established over many years creating a perfect setting for the property. Set in a slightly elevated positon above a country lane, the house is approached over a tarmac driveway providing ample parking and leading to the double garage and attached workshop/storage areas. From there steps leads into the main garden, lawned to the front and side with well stocked herbaceous borders, ornamental shrubs and established hedges. At the rear is a sheltered terrace and useful Home Office with light and power and beyond this is the orchard and kitchen garden with fruit trees and a stand of mature oak trees.

The property is quietly tucked away in this favoured residential hamlet midway between Chard and the popular village of Combe St Nicholas, surrounded by glorious unspoilt countryside. Chard caters for most everyday needs with major supermarkets, smaller retailers, banks, medical services etc and local amenities include general store, post office, primary school and pub. The County Town of Taunton is some 12 miles to the North and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast about 15 miles to the South at Lyme Regis.
