Little Chewton is a superb detached home which is located in ever-popular Askerswell and enjoys a stunning outlook with nothing opposite but open fields and seemingly endless views. The property has been thoughtfully designed to take full advantage of the fantastic surrounding countryside whilst maintaining spacious proportions and great flexibility, including scope to create an annexe on the ground floor. Built to an exacting standard in 1987, and beautifully maintained under the current and previous ownerships, this wonderful home offers comfortable and stylish living with a sense of light and tranquility throughout.

The versatility of the accommodation is most prevalent on the ground floor where there is a reception/study room with an adjoining ensuite bedroom and store room which could be used as an annexe or guest suite if required, and the utility room which leads to the integral garage and a useful workshop/hobby room (additional accommodation/annex potential) which could also be used for a broad variety of alternative purposes. Upstairs the accommodation includes two further bedrooms, including a principal bedroom with ensuite shower room and fitted wardrobes; a relaxing sitting room with dual aspect windows, a multifuel burner and an adjoining dining area from which sliding doors open into the large and impressive conservatory; and the kitchen which is fitted with quality, contemporary units with comprehensive built in Neff appliances and ample storage.


The property enjoys a delightful, established plot of approximately 0.35 of an acre which is charmingly landscaped into a variety of rooms including an atmospheric wooded dell. Well kept lawns bordered by an exciting array of flora surround the house, setting an appealing environment for spending time out of doors, particularly in the rear garden which enjoys a sunny, private aspect with a paved sun terrace ideally placed for al fresco dining. A large gated driveway offers parking and turning space for a number of vehicles, and the electric door into the garage can be accessed from here.
