This charming three-bedroom detached property is located in the centre of Bishopswood, a popular village in the Blackdown Hills, where the surrounding landscape is very much one of an unchanging nature with undulating fields, woodland and small copses. Both Chard and Ilminster are within easy reach.

The spacious split-level village home was constructed in the late 1960s and over the years it has been substantially extended with scope for flexible living. The main living quarters can be found on the ground floor, while further rooms and vast space for storage can be found on the lower ground floor.

Inside, the house is well-presented and has several fine features. The sitting room has a double aspect, a wood burner, fitted bookshelves and lovely views of the countryside, while the dining room also has fine views. The classic kitchen has a handy U-shape layout with a good range of wooden units and a central island with an integrated hob and an overhead extractor hood. The ground floor is completed by two double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The principal bedroom is located on the lower ground floor and benefits from an ensuite shower room. A large and light conservatory can also be found on this level, which forms part of the full height extension which is glazed on three sides. This part of the house is bathed in natural light and leads directly to the garden.

Outside, the well-established rear garden is mainly laid to lawn and has herbaceous borders, a vegetable patch and an abundance of mature shrubs and trees including apple trees.

At the front, the tarmac driveway provides ample space for parking and leads to an attached single garage/workshop.
