Tytherleigh is close to the borders of Somerset and Dorset and equidistant between Axminster and Chard. The property is within a short distance of the popular Tytherleigh Arms and just over half a mile from the pretty village of Chardstock with a popular primary school, general store, community hall and public house.


Axminster provides for most day to day needs, with schools, shops, sports and recreational facilities, along with a station on the London to Waterloo line. The A303 is about 9 miles and Taunton, 17 miles north, provides easy access to the M5 and a rail station on the London to Paddington line.


Dating back to the 1930's, Grasmere enjoys south westerly views over the surrounding countryside. Over recent years, the property has been transformed to provide spacious accommodation including a fantastic open plan kitchen/dining/living room with sliding doors opening to the garden, perfect for family life and entertaining, and a reception room with en-suite shower room, which can easily be used as a bedroom for multi-generational living. Much of the charm has been retained, along with new materials and modern attributes, including glazing, wood burners, fireplace, picture rails, wooden floors and underfloor heating.


Throughout the ground floor is a combination of timber and tiled flooring and some underfloor heating. The central entrance hall includes stairs to the first floor and doors opening to the principal rooms.


The impressive kitchen/dining/family room comprises a range of units with solid oak and granite effect work surfaces over, integrated appliance and an electric 'Everhot' stove, along with a central island unit. Doors open to a useful airing cupboard and separate cupboard with space and plumbing for laundry appliances. The extended sitting room has been cleverly designed to contrast between old and new, including sliding door opening to the garden, exposed brick fireplace with inset wood burner and floor to ceiling bookshelves along one wall. The family room includes a bay window and central fireplace with mantle over and granite hearth. Beyond the kitchen is a further reception room, currently used as a gym, with sliding door opening to the garden and en suite shower room.


On the first floor there are five bedrooms, all enjoying views over the surrounding gardens, and the family bathroom fitted with a modern white suite.


The property is approached by a private drive providing ample parking and garage. The gardens surround the property and are fully enclosed; to the front there is a level area of grass, whilst the rear is predominantly laid to lawn with a raised patio, including a brick paved barbeque and pergola, and a number of trees. Adjoining the garden is a separate paddock benefitting from its own private access and useful field shelter.


Mains electricity and water. Private drainage. Oil fired central heating.


From the A358 between Chard and Axminster at the Tytherleigh Arms turn west towards Chardstock and the property will be found after a short distance on the right identified by a Stags for sale board.
