This ideally located period cottage sits in a quiet, tucked away spot on the south side of Chard’s High Street and is within easy walking distance of the town centre and a plethora of good walks in the open countryside.

The cosy three-bedroom property sits at the end of a terrace and comes with a private garden and plenty of parking space.

Inside, the charming stone-built house is well-presented with pleasing neutral décor, and well-proportioned rooms, and it would now benefit from some general updating. The living room is a good size with double doors to the garden and, as it is south-facing, it benefits from a high degree of natural light. The separate dining room is equally pleasant and features an attractive open fireplace with a raised hearth and brick surround. The kitchen has a classic country-style look with a beamed ceiling, good lighting, a range of well-fitted, cream-coloured units, wooden worksurfaces and lovely wooden flooring. The overall look is aesthetically pleasing yet functional. An adjacent utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

On the first floor, there are three generous bedrooms and a family bathroom with a bath and separate shower.

Outside, mature gardens surround three sides of the house and provide a high degree of privacy. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn and are bordered by a wealth of well-established trees, shrubs and fruit trees. The small, raised decking area with an overhead pergola is a lovely spot for alfresco dining and there is also an open-fronted garden store.

There is ample parking space on the wide gravelled driveway/turning area and in the single garage.
