This newly-built contemporary family home occupies a plot of just under a fifth of an acre in a popular semi-rural position, on the borders of Somerset, Dorset and Devon and just three miles south of Chard.

The four-bedroom house has splendid views of the surrounding countryside and easy and direct access to a host of rural walks.

The modern property has been designed and built to take maximum advantage of the open aspect, with plenty of glass and contrasting black windows. The accommodation is stylish and spacious with superb ceiling heights and a living space that is flooded with natural light. Currently, the house is a blank canvas waiting for its new owner to make their mark with their individual interior ideas and furniture.

The wide entrance hallway makes quite the impression with its stylish oak and glass staircase that rises up to the first floor. On the ground floor, there is a cosy snug with lovely open views of the countryside and a stylish kitchen/family room that overlooks the garden.

The feeling of light and space continues on the first-floor level where a wide galleried landing leads to four double bedrooms and a luxurious family bathroom fitted with high-specification fixtures. The principal bedroom benefits from outstanding views of the country and a high-quality ensuite bathroom.

Outside, the fully enclosed rear garden measures 0.19 acres and is mainly level and laid to lawn with a wide paved terrace. At the front, there is a large parking area accessed by electric gates.
