South Chard is a small village on the borders of Somerset, Devon and Dorset, some 3 miles south of Chard and within 10 miles of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis.

Both Chard and Axminster offer a wide range of amenities and Axminster has the benefit of the main South Western Rail service, which runs from Exeter St David's to London Waterloo. There are several popular primary schools within easy reach and a wide choice of both independent and state secondary schools.

The County town of Taunton is about 17 miles to the north, providing links to the M5 and the regional airports of Exeter and Bristol are easily accessible.


Dairs Barton is a beautifully presented Grade II Listed former farmhouse, with origins dating back to the 16th century. The current owners have had extensive works and refurbishment carried out, to include two major extensions.

The sympathetic refurbishment has enriched many of the original features such as the charming inglenook fireplace, window seats and exposed beams. There is a superb open plan, bespoke handmade kitchen/dining room and a spacious triple aspect home office featuring solid wood furnishings and double doors leading out to a peaceful paved seating area. Other improvements include handmade hardwood windows, re-thatching of the roof in 2016 and extensive landscaping of the gardens and grounds.


The property boasts two spacious reception rooms packed full of character, with both rooms benefitting from wood burning stoves. The kitchen features handmade solid wooden units, quality integrated appliances and an island with solid American black walnut surfacing. There is a most useful utility room providing additional storage, space for further appliances and cloakroom.

To the first floor is a split level landing where access is provided to three generous double bedrooms and a large family bathroom which includes a white suite and separate shower cubicle. Of particular note is the impressive master bedroom that features views of the gardens, dressing room which could be used as an occasional fourth bedroom and a fully fitted en-suite bathroom.


The property is tucked away and approached by solid timber double gates leading onto a gravelled driveway to the front of the property, providing parking for several vehicles with a large and useful stone built workshop.

The mature cottage style gardens surround the property; to the rear there is a substantial koi carp pond, vegetable plot and pathways that lead to both lawned and patio areas which are bordered with mature trees and hedging.
