A superbly presented 4 bedroom detached chalet house in a highly sought after village on the East Devon/Somerset border. A warm inviting interior and highly flexible layout. Double garage/workshop and large private garden. EPC: Band D
The Glen is traditionally built with block and rendered elevations set beneath a slate tiled roof. This is the extent of how much the property has in common with a chalet that you might find on the market. The home has been dramatically and superbly refurbished to create a truly individual property. Great care and thought has been taken into making the most out of space. The interior is warm and inviting with the use of natural materials including wooden floors, wooden skirting boards and architraves, a wooden staircase and brick fireplace which is open on both sides. The property also benefits from oil fired central heating, an intelligent lighting system, water softener and double glazing. The accommodation to the ground floor briefly comprises an enclosed entrance hall with a snug and guest bedroom suite off, open plan living area with central fireplace heating the whole room, kitchen and utility room off. The first floor provides 3 bedrooms (1 en-suite), a family bathroom and a landing with a mezzanine area.
The property sits well within a large plot of just over half an acre. A large driveway laid to chippings provides plenty of off road parking and leads up to the double garage/workshop. The garage has light, power, an automatic garage door and provides access through to the rear for the ride-on lawnmower to come in and out. The garden is exceptional with a hugely varied selection of mature trees creating a private garden to the front, with a large area of lawn, which can be viewed from the front terrace. The boundary at the front is enclosed by an ornate metal fence which gives access to the gardens. The rear garden has been cleverly landscaped into sections or areas. A patio and winter garden leads directly off from the rear of the property giving a sheltered place to sit. The first area of garden to the rear centres around a large pond surrounded with various plants, shrubs and bushes. The next area of garden has a selection of ornamental trees and a useful garden shed. The top section of garden is a small paddock with productive vegetable garden, raised beds, fruit cage and polytunnel. A hedge runs up through the length of the north side of the property and encloses the lower half of the top section of the rear garden.
The bungalow is quietly located in this very popular East Devon village, within easy reach of excellent local amenities that include a shop/post office, pub, primary school, Church and community hall that hosts a wide range of activities. Chardstock lies midway between Chard and Axminster on the Devon/Somerset border, both about 5 miles distant and catering for most everyday needs including major supermarkets, specialist retailers, banks, medical facilities etc. The World Heritage Jurassic Coast is just 10 miles to the South at Lyme Regis and the Cathedral City of Exeter is some 30 miles to the West.
