One of the most important houses in Chard, Crimchard House dates originally from the 17th Century, was remodelled in the 19th Century and has recently been upgraded to provide a very comfortable family home with some scope for further improvement. The property is robustly built with squared flint and limestone elevations, with limestone dressings and quoins set beneath a slate roof and is the proud owner of a blue plaque, detailing its past history. The rooms are all well proportioned with excellent ceiling heights and features include a wealth of decorative plasterwork and mouldings, stone mullion casements, a fine 19th Century staircase with arched window and period tiling to the ground floor. At ground floor level the accommodation currently provides three reception rooms, principal kitchen/breakfast room, secondary kitchen, bathroom and conservatory. To the first and mezzanine floors are six generous bedrooms, one presently used as a study, two bathrooms, cloakroom and then a second floor attic playroom. In addition, there is an attached Victorian greenhouse with adjoining cellar. The garden is almost entirely walled offering a high degree of privacy and an access at the side leads to a triple carport and hard standing.
The house is situated on the Northern outskirts of Chard, fronting the road to Combe St Nicholas and within about ¾ mile of the town centre. Chard caters for most daily requirements with a range of supermarkets, specialist retailers, banks, educational and leisure facilities. The County Town of Taunton is some 14 miles to the North offering excellent retail commercial and educational opportunities together with an intercity rail service (London Paddington) and access to the M5 motorway. The World Heritage Jurassic Coast is 14 miles to the South at Lyme Regis and the regional airports of Bristol and Exeter are both within easy reach.
