A bright and attractively updated 1930`s detached family home set in a large plot of around half an acre along a quiet lane in the hamlet of Tytherleigh, about 3.5 miles north of Axminster. The house is well presented throughout, having been modernised in recent years to provide contemporary open-plan living to the ground floor, with 4/5 bedrooms, the master benefitting from a large, modern en-suite. The spacious entrance hall shares a wood-burning stove with the large lounge (by means of a double-sided fireplace) and leads to a bright and airy kitchen/dining room - thanks to its southerly aspect and bi-fold doors - with an additional snug/study area. There is also a utility room and downstairs cloakroom. With gated access from the lane, there is parking for several vehicles to the front of the property, whilst the generous rear garden offers ample space for al fresco dining and entertaining, room to play and plenty of options for those in search of a slice of the good life! The property benefits from double glazed windows throughout, central heating and cavity wall insulation.
Tytherleigh has an excellent pub and restaurant (the Tytherleigh Arms), an antique centre and a bathroom showroom. Bus services to Axminster and Chard stop nearby and the larger village of Chardstock is just under a mile away. Chardstock is thriving village with a local shop, Primary School, Pub and busy village hall offering plenty of community events.
