Wambrook, Chard, Somerset

Built in a traditional manner with Bradstone elevations beneath a tiled roof and occupying a stunning semi rural location, this exceptional property has recently undergone a full refurbishment and now offers spacious and versatile accommodation that is beautifully presented throughout and commands outstanding views across the surrounding countryside.

The attached plan defines the layout of the accommodation which takes full advantage of the elevated location and provides two superb reception rooms, both with open fireplaces, a spacious and well fitted kitchen/breakfast room with cloakroom and utility off. There are five bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities and the master suite enjoys amazing long range views with an en-suite bathroom and walk in dressing area.

The property has undergone a comprehensive refurbishment in recent times replacing wiring, plumbing, heating and water systems, windows and doors and is presented in superb order throughout.

The property is approached from a ‘no through’ country lane with a driveway that leads up to a wide parking area and double garage. There is formal garden to the rear and side of the bungalow and the remainder of the land is a mix of rough pasture, amenity land and copse, all enjoying an exceptional and far reaching outlook across the surrounding and totally unspoilt Somerset and Devon countryside. The total area is believed to extend to 6.32 Acres.

The property benefits from a substantial range of former agricultural buildngs where full planning permission has been granted for the creation of self contained holiday accommodation with swimming pool and associated amenity space specifically aimed at the higher echelons of the hospitality industry. Full plans are available for inspection and the planning reference at South Somerset District Council is 21/00199/FUL.

The property is set in a fabulous elevated position on the edge of the much sought after village of Wambrook on the Southern extremities of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within 14 miles of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis.

The village is a thriving close knit community with a popular local pub, The Cotley Inn, and fine Parish Church, whilst the surrounding countryside is traditional and gloriously unspoilt where footpaths and bridleways abound. The small country town of Chard is about 2 miles away catering for most daily needs and the County Town of Taunton is some 14 miles to the North with a wide range of retail, commercial and leisure opportunities.

Other nearby towns include Axminster, Honiton and Bridport and both the M5 motorway and A303 are readily accessible with intercity rail links at Axminster and Taunton.

From Chard take the A30 in a Westerly direction and just beyond the town boundary bear left at the thatched Toll House then bear left again. Continue without deviation passing Red Post, downhill past the pub and up the other side. Take the second left by the post box into a ‘No Through’ road and the entrance to the property will be found after a very short distance on the right.
