This substantially extended property occupies a corner plot position tucked away in a popular residential area on the eastern fringes of Chard and is within walking distance of the Chard Reservoir nature reserve.

The six-to-seven-bedroom detached dwelling offers great flexibility and provides scope for a home office, workspace or ground-floor accommodation for a dependent relative.

On the ground floor, the well-proportioned sitting room has a central gas fire as a pleasant focal point, and an opening leads through to a formal dining room with French doors opening to the rear garden. Across the hall, the former garage has been converted into a multi-purpose ground floor room which is large enough to be an accessible double bedroom. The kitchen/breakfast room has a modern contemporary look with dark blue units, quartz effect laminate worksurfaces, space for appliances and a handy central island.

On the first floor, a spacious landing leads to the six bedrooms and a large modern family shower room. The principal bedroom benefits from a range of fitted wardrobes and an ensuite shower room.

Outside, the rear garden features a large patio that extends across the width of the house with a decking ramp to the kitchen and a further ramp leading to an upper level. The garden also features a further patio, an area of lawn, a rockery bed and enough space and scope for a vegetable patch.

At the front, there is ample parking space for several vehicles on the driveway.
