This traditional mid-century chalet bungalow occupies a semi-rural position in the small village of Forton, around one mile south of Chard, and is surrounded by miles of unspoilt countryside.

Over the years, the detached four-bedroom dwelling has been subject to various extensions and alterations and now provides well-presented, spacious family-size accommodation over two floors.

Inside, the large, dual-aspect sitting room has bi-folding doors opening onto a south-facing patio, clever built-in storage and a modern multi-fuel stove as its main focal point. The kitchen/breakfast room has a classic look with maple shaker-style units, dark work surfaces, a central island and several integrated appliances including a NEFF double electric oven. Across the main hallway is a formal dining room overlooking the rear.

Two double bedrooms can be found on the ground floor and a family bathroom fitted with a modern suite. The principal bedroom benefits from two walk-in wardrobes/dressing areas.

On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms, a study area and a shower room.

Outside, the property sits almost central in its plot and enjoys a good degree of seclusion with the stream, trees and boundary hedges sheltering the garden and creating privacy. The gardens are well established and offer a variety of interest with shaped pathways, areas of lawn, a south-facing patio and veranda, a raised vegetable bed, an abundance of mature shrubs and trees plus a low wall bordering a brook.

At the front, the large driveway provides ample parking space and access to a large garage/workshop and a further detached double garage.
