About This Property

Viewings commencing on Friday 20th August 2021. A well presented detached cottage with 3 double bedrooms and grounds totalling 2.7 acres in an idyllic location on the edge of the desirable village of Chaffcombe. EPC: Band C

Situated in the most idyllic woodland setting, Knapps Cottage occupies an incredibly private position on the edge of Chaffcombe Woods nestled between the towns of Chard and Ilminster. Built with block and rendered elevations set beneath a tiled roof the property offers spacious accommodation. Planning permission was approved in 2014 (Planning reference 14/04439/FUL which has now expired) for a substantial two storey extension on the North elevation and a single storey garden room on the West elevation to provide an extra reception room, bedroom and garden room. The accommodation briefly comprises of a kitchen, dining room, sitting room, utility room and cloakroom on the ground floor with 3 double bedrooms, each with en-suites, on the first floor. Central heating is provided by a gas fired boiler and double glazing is installed.

The property is approached from a quiet lane through automated double gates. A tarmac driveway leads up to the Double Garage/Workshop (19'7 x 17'11 plus 2 store rooms) and parking area which provides secure parking for several vehicles. There is a further timber outbuilding (18'2 x 10 plus store room) and a covered Pergola (17'3 x 16'9). The gardens are beautifully landscaped and well stocked with a variety of flowers, shrubs, trees and bushes. The gardens extend to approximately 0.8 acres, bounded by attractive native hedging and mature trees. There is also an area of woodland extending to approximately 1.9 acres which has been landscaped with meandering paths making an attractive and sheltered place to relax and unwind. The woodland would also suit somebody looking to keep animals, poultry or bees. The entire plot extends to approximately 2.7 acres.

Set in this delightful village, close to the reservoir and surrounded by unspoilt countryside this is a thriving community with various village hall activities, a fine church and within easy reach of the town's amenities in Ilminster.
Ilminster is a medieval former market town, situated about 12 miles south east of the county town of Taunton. Surrounded by undulating open countryside designated a Special Landscape area, the majority of the town falls within a Conservation Area with many character properties built of the local mellow Hamstone. The ancient Minster dominates the centre of the town. Ilminster offers a full range of amenities including doctors, dentist, shopping facilities and weekly market. The town also benefits from an arts centre and theatre. There is schooling at primary and intermediate levels and churches of various denominations. Ilminster has convenient road access to both the M5, junction 25 lies 11 miles to the north-west and to the A303, now dual carriageway most of the way to the M3.
