An impressive detached country house offering generous 4 bedroom accommodation together with separate self contained annexe all set in gardens and grounds extending to about 1 Acre. EPC: Main House Band E
The sale of Wayside represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a lovely family home with the benefit of a well proportioned one bedroom annexe set in a very accessible semi rural location. Originally a much smaller period cottage, the property was substantially extended and redeveloped in the 1990's to create a particularly spacious country residence all set in mature and private grounds of just over 1 Acre. The main house is substantially constructed with rendered elevations set beneath a tiled roof and offers well planned and generous accommodation throughout. The ground floor layout provides a superb main entrance hallway that uses full height to a galleried landing, double aspect sitting room with timbered ceiling and log burner, separate dining room also with log burner, study, double aspect kitchen/breakfast room with separate utility and boiler room, shower room and cloakroom. The main first floor landing is triple aspect and exceptionally light with four excellent bedrooms, one en-suite, and a large family bathroom. The annexe is constructed in matching style and provides a large living room with multifuel burner, conservatory off, well fitted kitchen, cloakroom, stairs, with lift, to double bedroom and bathroom. Heating in both properties is provided by oil fired central heating and double glazing is fitted throughout. A perfect property for a two generation family or for anyone looking to derive an income stream.
The gardens and grounds are mature and well established and form an ideal setting for this imposing house. Approached through double gates, there is a wide brick paved driveway providing excellent parking together with a timber garage and high hedges and stone walling provide seclusion and privacy. Immediately adjacent to the property is an area of formal garden with colourful shrubs, well stocked herbaceous borders, summerhouse, greenhouse, large workshop and ornamental pond. A gate leads through to the main garden with sweeping lawns, mature trees and a small orchard with assorted fruit trees, poultry runs, vegetable plot, greenhouse, large potting shed and cedarwood summerhouse. The whole area is thought to extend to marginally in excess of 1 Acre.
Wayside occupies a fine semi rural position close to the traditional small town of Chard surrounded by some beautiful South Somerset countryside and within a 30 minute drive of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis. Chard offers a good range of everyday amenities with a choice of major supermarkets, smaller retailers, educational and leisure facilities. The County Town of Taunton is some 12 miles to the North with an excellent choice of schooling in both the private and state sectors. Road and rail links are very accessible as the property is within 3 miles of the main A303 and the M5 motorway connects at Taunton with intercity rail services at Taunton and Crewkerne and both Bristol and Exeter airports are within easy driving distance.
