This stylish and contemporary bungalow is located in a spot just off the centre of Chard, within walking distance of the main facilities yet feels somewhat "tucked away" being sat in a good size plot with a surprisingly private garden at the rear.

The three/four-bedroom dwelling has been extensively modernised and refurbished to a high standard and now provides comfortable and versatile accommodation.

The former porch has been replaced with a stylish contemporary version acting as a spacious entrance lobby and boot room. This leads to the hub of the home – a fabulous open-plan kitchen/living room with a dual aspect. The kitchen has an industrial chic look with its deep blue units, copper accents and metro tiling. Oak worktops incorporate a breakfast bar for informal dining, and a double butler sink with copper mixer tap. A separate reception room, currently used as a formal dining room could work as a further bedroom if required.

There are three bedrooms, with the principal bedroom benefitting from bespoke wardrobes and drawers. The spacious and well-designed bathroom has been amalgamated from three separate spaces and offers a luxurious suite with a freestanding bath and a generous walk-in shower.

Outside, a sheltered gravelled seating area sits immediately adjacent to the rear of the house and has a stepping stone path that leads to the rest of the garden. Sleeper steps lead up to a lovely square lawn, with raised beds including shrubs and architectural planting such as Phormiums and grasses. There's a path to one side and a wildflower garden along the eastern boundary, planted with apple, pear and plum trees. Mature grapevines adorn a timber frame and provide privacy and colour when in leaf throughout the year. At the end of the garden is a further seating area with a timber pergola and swing seat.

At the front, there is a driveway and a small garden laid with slate chippings.
