26 Chard Road is a superb village home which offers comfortable, quality accommodation alongside 1.5 acres of land and represents a rarely-seen opportunity to acquire a manageable smallholding. Under the current ownership, the property has undergone a significant extension which has seen the addition of a fantastic sun room, a utility room and a large double garage with a separate office, enhancing the original 1960s bungalow to great effect. Despite its position at the heart of the village, a wonderful country outlook can be enjoyed to the rear, particularly from the sun room, giving a sense of rural living alongside all the benefits of being within a friendly and active community.

Internally the accommodation is spacious and beautifully presented with high quality, classically styling fixtures and fittings throughout. Arranged around a wide, welcoming central entrance hall with exposed floorboards, which stretch throughout much of the accommodation, the rooms are laid out with a healthy divide between living and sleeping areas. To the right is a charming sitting room with a fireplace and wood burner which lies open to the kitchen/breakfast room where solid oak units and work surface with an oil-fired Rayburn create a country atmosphere. Sliding doors open into the sun room which features two sets of bi-folding doors, providing a seamless transition of indoor/outdoor living when weather allows.

Three well proportioned bedrooms can be found to the left of the entrance hall, each benefitting from built-in wardrobes. Bedrooms 2 and 3 both benefit from re-aspect windows, allowing them to take full advantage of the country views. The family bathroom, which is fitted with a white suite comprising bath with shower over, WC and wash hand basin, can also be found here. Furthermore, the property enjoys excellent domestic facilities including a cloakroom, ample storage and a utility room which links the bungalow with the double garage and is fitted with a range of units and plumbing for a washing machine. The garage, which can be accessed through twin up-and-over vehicle doors from the front or double doors from the rear, is divided into an L shaped parking or workshop area with a separate study, making this an excellent set up for those working from home or requiring a self-contained hobby space. There is also potential to convert this part of the property into an annexe, subject to any necessary consents being achieved.


26 Chard Road sits within a generous plot of approximately 1.5 acres. Immediately surrounding the property are attractive, easily maintained gardens which are primarily laid to lawn with two paved sun terraces to the rear. Enjoyment of the country vista has been maximised through clever landscaping which has seen physical divides between the garden and the land removed, with livestock now kept out of the domestic garden by a wooden cattle grid. The land is primarily level and is surrounded by a combination of establish hedges and fencing with direct road access through a five-bar gate. Part of the land is dedicated to the growing of produce with large vegetable beds and a poly tunnel with electrical connection, giving the opportunity to achieve an element of self sufficiency. There are also two fields shelters which also benefit from electrical connections.
