Chapel Farm has been renovated and extended in recent years to create a lovely modern family house situated in one of the most popular villages in Somerset. The house is in immaculate condition and ready to move into immediately! Notably, it is energy efficient with solar panels generating an income of £2K per annum.
On the ground floor, an attractive oak floored hallway with stairs to the first floor leads to a modern, open plan kitchen / diner with fitted units and oak work tops, integrated appliances and an island doubling up as a breakfast bar. A stable door opens into the garden outside. Off the kitchen is a spacious utility room that in turn leads to an integral double garage. Between the dining area and the kitchen is a space for a cosy sofa ideal for relaxing and watching TV! The dining area opens into a really good sized sitting room with built in shelving and a Charnwood wood burner set into a recessed fireplace. French doors open onto the terrace and the gardens beyond. This is a really elegant room and full of light.
Upstairs is a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and dressing room, four further bedrooms (three doubles and one single) and a family bathroom. All the rooms have fitted carpets and lovely views of the gardens below and at the rear to a field behind the house. Windows are double glazed with oak sills.
Chapel Farm is approached from the road via an attractive gravelled driveway with lawns to the side and plenty of parking. Two paths lead around the house, one to the log shed and one to the garden. The rear of the house and the integrated double garage are accessed via some double gates off a lane to the side of the property. This private and secluded garden is laid to lawn with a further shed, various fruit trees, a mature oak and some vegetable and flower beds and overlooks a neighbouring field
