A detached modern house in a pretty village location set in about 2 1/2 acres.
Sticky Wicket was built towards the end of the last century and is a good looking, detached house that has low maintenance exterior elevations of reconstituted stone and has the benefit of again low maintenance double glazed replacement windows under a tiled roof. The present vendors have improved the property during the period of their occupation by installing the modern window systems, re-fitting the kitchen and first floor bathroom as well as a number of other improvements, all of which combine to create the attractive family home with adaptable accommodation we find today. As mentioned, on the ground floor is a small suite which would be ideal for a larger extended family or anyone with mobility issues.
Sticky Wicket is situated close to the heart of this attractive Devon village which is located on the Devon/Somerset border between the market towns of Axminster and Chard. The village of Chardstock is situated in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the property stands in a slightly elevated yet sheltered location enjoying a sunny aspect and backs onto farmland. It is within just a few hundred yards walk of the facilities of this attractive village and also within just a few hundred yards walk of the countryside making it a very convenient position indeed. The property stands well back from the lane and is set in a large mature garden and to the rear are a useful range of stables and outbuildings that adjoin the paddock.
Chardstock has a good range of village amenities which include a shop/post office, primary school, parish church and popular public house. It lies approximately 4.5 miles from Axminster which has an excellent variety of shops, secondary school, sports facilities and a main line rail link to London (Waterloo). Chard is located about 4 miles to the north which also has a good range of amenities and the county town of Taunton is about 20 miles further with a wide range of shopping facilities, cinema, theatre, main line rail link to London (Paddington) and M5 access. The Jurassic coast at Lyme Bay is approximately 9 miles to the south and is a popular destination for tourists and designated as a World Heritage Site.
The property is approached from the village street through a timber five-bar gate to a tarmacadam parking and turn around area in front of the house. The grounds immediately adjoining are laid mainly to areas of lawn interspersed with maturing trees and shrubs. There is also a separate side drive that leads to the land which is to the rear as well as the stable yard around which are grouped four timber stables and a useful small block and tiled roof barn, ideal for hay storage, tractor, etc. The land lies to the north and in all we understand extends to approximately 2½ acres.
