This detached family house occupies an elevated position on a 0.73-acre plot in a quiet, tucked away part of the favoured residential hamlet of Wadeford that is midway between Chard and Combe St Nicholas.

The four-bedroom detached property, named Westward Ho!, was built in the 1970s and comes with annexe potential. The house has never been offered on the open market before and represents a rare opportunity to acquire a property in this sought-after residential location.

The traditionally built house offers well-proportioned and versatile accommodation and has further scope to add an extension or a self-contained annexe and opportunities for general updating throughout.

Beyond the wide entrance hallway, there is a double-aspect sitting room with a charming open fireplace, French doors that open to the garden and other doors that slide open to the separate dining room.

The kitchen has a traditional look with a U-shape of wooden cupboards, white work surfaces and plenty of space for appliances. This leads to a rear lobby with a cloakroom and a utility room. At the far end of the hallway is a second sitting room, or a fifth bedroom, with an adjoining wet room.

On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms, a single and a family bathroom with a contemporary white suite.

Outside, the grounds extend to an estimated 0.73 acre and are largely informal with sweeping lawns bounded by mature hedges. A patio area sits immediately adjacent to the house.

At the front, there is a wide parking area that offers plenty of space to accommodate a caravan, motorhome or several cars. This leads to a large, attached garage.
