4 Bedroom Detached House

Chestnut House, Vicarage Lane, MARK, Somerset


Chestnut House is a large family home in the heart of the Village. Set in a generous plot, this detached house has been completely refurbished by the current owners. Recent improvements include creating a large kitchen/dining room with a sun room area which leads out to the patio terrace and rear garden. The sellers have also increased the size of the living room and added a wood burner. They extended over the garage to create a large family bathroom and added two en suite shower rooms to two of the four bedrooms. Originally built in 1974 this home is now far more light and spacious, assisted with the introduction of additional windows and doors. Gardens surround the property including a large private garden mainly laid to lawn, a small orchard and a vegetable garden. A recent addition is the south facing timber built home office or summer house. In addition to the garage which offers ample room for parking and storage, there is off road parking for several cars.
