  • Bedrooms: 3
A beautifully presented character detached cottage standing within private and good sized gardens that adjoin open farmland on the edge of a highly favoured village.

Chapel House probably dates back about 200 years and as the name implies, had ecclesiastical connections. Although not previously a chapel itself, the garage at the property formed part of a chapel seemingly until the 1930's. The present property is of rendered and colour washed elevations under slated roofs and has been the subject of considerable modernisation and improvement over the years and is now offered in excellent decorative order throughout and with a good level of specification. The works have been done sympathetically and many of the original character features still remain. The ground floor offers several interconnecting and attractive reception areas together with a well appointed kitchen/breakfast room. On the first floor two bedrooms and a family bathroom can be found along with the master suite boasting a double bedroom, ensuite and dressing room. Of particular note are the good sized gardens that adjoin and lie to the southern side of the house together with the good off road parking and garaging that is a real premium in this village.

Halse is widely regarded as one of the premier villages within the Taunton Vale District in recognition of its many attractive character properties of which undoubtedly Chapel House is one. The village has a strong sense of community and there are many local events held. Local amenities include a popular pub, attractive parish church and village hall whilst the rural centre of Bishops Lydeard is only 2 miles away where a good range of day to day amenities will be found including primary schooling. Taunton the county town is readily accessible about 6 miles away where a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities will be found including an M5 interchange (junction 25) and fast link to London Paddington. The surrounding area is of undulating and attractive countryside and there are many local footpaths that provide easy access into this delightful area.

The property is approached via a long driveway which terminates in a hard standing and turning area beside which is a double garage with up and over door, electric light and power and secure store room. The gardens lie to the southern side of the house and are simply delightful. They afford informal areas of lawn interspersed with very well stocked herbaceous borders and offer a great degree of privacy and seclusion being set within well established hedged and walled boundaries and also including a number of mature trees such as Beech and Chestnut. A paved terrace lies close to the rear of the house which is ideal for evening entertainment and both a timber garden shed and a summer house are also included. The gardens, directly adjoining open farmland, are a particular feature and form a lovely setting for this well presented character house.
