THIS elegant Grade II listed Georgian townhouse is situated in an elevated position, within easy reach of Chard’s town centre.

Hope Terrace dates from the early 19th century and is the proud bearer of a heritage blue plaque.

The four-storey, three-bedroom property is packed with charm and has a wealth of period features such as sash windows with original shutters, excellent ceiling heights, picture rails and flagstone floors in the hall and dining room.

The sitting room has a classic look with an attractive feature fireplace and a sash window, while the separate dining room is equally charming with solid flagstone flooring and a door that gives access to the basement area that is ripe for future improvement and currently used for storage. The ground floor is completed with a galley-style kitchen with a range of cream-coloured units, wood effect worktops and a door that opens to the courtyard.

On the first floor, there is a spacious family bathroom, a separate shower and a large double bedroom with lovely square proportions. Two further double bedrooms can be found on the second floor.

Outside, the low-maintenance, rear courtyard garden is a suntrap and has high brick-built walls that provide a good degree of seclusion.

At the front, the property is accessed via a stone pathway topped by ornamental, wrought iron railings, and there is a small, paved garden.

This impressive townhouse is offered to the market for the first time in more than 20 years and is for sale with no onward chain.
