4 bed Detached - For Sale
The Drift, Chard Common, Chard, Somerset, TA20

A wonderful four bedroom Chalet bungalow enjoyed a rural location with gardens, garage and parking. The property is presented to a very high level with quality fixtures and fittings throughout and offers flexible accommodation via bedrooms on the ground floor and first floor.

The current owners have carried out a full programme of works throughout the bungalow, stripping the original bungalow back to its bare walls before carrying out a full refurbishment and upgrade, whilst increasing the footprint via a single storey extension and loft conversion.

The quality of finish is superb and must be viewed internally to be fully appreciated. The layout alterations provide versatile living accommodation over two floors, with the first floor enjoying views across fields and countryside.

An open plan living space merges the lounge and dining areas together creating and very light and spacious environment. A simple, but stylish fireplace houses a double-sided wood burner servicing both the dining area and kitchen/breakfast room.
