This individual, detached bungalow occupies an elevated and tucked away position on the outskirts of Chard, and benefits from splendid views across the rooftops and countryside beyond, while also backing onto open fields.

The four-bedroom property dates back to the 1970s and, over the course of time, it has been enhanced to a high standard by the current owners, who are bringing the house to market now for the first time in nearly 20 years. The property offers extremely versatile accommodation that has significant annexe potential for multi-generational living.

Inside, the bungalow features a superb open-plan kitchen/living area with an impressive, vaulted ceiling, an open fireplace with a multifuel stove and access to a secluded garden terrace. This leads to the kitchen/breakfast area which is comprehensively fitted with a range of matching white units, matching work surfaces, lovely wooden flooring and an Aga-style cooker.

An inner hallway leads to three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The fourth bedroom, with ensuite facilities, is on the first floor and can be accessed from the dining room and could potentially work as a self-contained annexe.

Outside, the main garden can be found at the front of the property, with open fields sitting to the side and rear. The garden is well established with an abundance of mature shrubs and flowering plants, a pretty pergola with a grapevine, plus a greenhouse and useful garden shed.

Also at the front is a long driveway that provides ample parking space for several vehicles and leads to a single garage.
