THIS attractive, end-of-terrace townhouse is conveniently located within around a quarter of a mile from the centre of Chard and is within easy walking distance of most amenities.

The brick-built, four-bedroom period property is beautifully appointed and has been sympathetically enhanced to maintain its original character but with all the benefits of modern living. The four-storey house is presented in good decorative order and is particularly spacious with well-proportioned rooms.

On the ground floor, the sitting room is a comfortable and welcoming space with charming period features such as a lovely bay window, an ornate focal fireplace, high ceilings, corning and picture rails. The dining room is equally well-sized and has double doors that lead to an area of sheltered decking outside. The galley-style kitchen has a classic look and is fitted with cream-coloured units with dark work surfaces and it, too, has double doors that lead to the garden.

At the lower ground floor level, there is a very useful utility/cellar.

On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a large contemporary bathroom with a standalone bath.

Stairs rise to the second floor, where the principal bedroom can be found, which has plenty of built-in storage and an ensuite bathroom.

Outside, at the front of the property is a small area of garden but the real surprise is at the back where there is a pretty west-facing garden offering plenty of privacy. This outside space is partly walled and has a paved terrace, an ornamental pond, an area of lawn, well-stocked borders and a wealth of mature shrubs. An added bonus is the very useful garden workshop.
