A quality 5-bedroom detached new home with spacious accommodation, garden and double garage, offering the opportunity to influence the final finish.
Thoughtfully designed and planned by an experienced developer in conjunction with local craftsmen, Orchard House offers a rare opportunity to purchase a brand new property with practicality and energy efficiency in mind on the edge of the pretty and conveniently located village of Tatworth.
Orchard House is individual in its design, offering spacious accommodation suitable for modern living with large kitchen/breakfast room and sitting room, both of which give sight and access to the sizeable and level rear garden. Also to the ground floor is a separate formal dining space, family/snug room, essential utility room and cloakroom, all benefitting from underfloor heating.
The property is equally well designed upstairs with a generous principal bedroom with an en-suite, plus 4 other bedrooms and family bathroom with separate bath and shower cubicle.
Orchard House is approached from the quiet lane over a gravelled driveway with ample parking, adjacent to which is the attached double garage. There is access to the rear garden via a pedestrian gate to the fully enclosed, sizeable and level lawned garden with patio area accessed through French doors from both the kitchen and sitting room.
Forton Lane is located on the fringes of the attractive community village of Tatworth, which in turn is located on the Somerset/Dorset/Devon borders, amongst some of the area's most picturesque countryside. Tatworth has a good range of village amenities which include a shop/post Office, primary school, ancient Parish Church and two public houses.
It lies approximately 2 miles from Chard which has an excellent variety of shops, schools and sports facilities, and the busy market town of Axminster which has a main line rail link to London (Waterloo). The County Town of Taunton is about 16 miles to the north and has a wide range of shopping facilities, excellent schooling both private and state, cinema, theatre, main line rail link to London (Paddington) and M5 access.
The Jurassic coast at Lyme Bay is approximately 12 miles to the south and is a popular destination for tourists and designated as a World Heritage Site known as the Jurassic Coast.
From Axminster, take the A358 signposted to Chard out of the town, passing through the lights and over the bridge at Weycroft Mill. Follow this road for about four miles, passing Ye Olde Poppe Inn on the left hand side, and take the next right hand turning. Follow this road past the Church, taking the next left onto Tatworth Street and continue to the T-junction. Turn left and the driveway to Orchard House will be found after a short distance on the right hand side.
