It has attractive rendered elevations with ‘Tudor style’ timbers set beneath a tiled, well-insulated roof. It enjoys the benefit of oil central heating and is double-glazed throughout. The accommodation is light and well proportioned and features include a hand-made limed oak Kitchen, attractive stone fireplace with open basket in the Living Room, coved ceilings throughout and extensive Axminster and Wilton carpeting. The self-contained annex provides comfortable accommodation for one or for a couple, with its own entrance, sitting room, double bedroom, small kitchen and bathroom with walk-in shower. A strong lockable door between the annex and the main part of the house can be opened up to create a larger single living unit.
Wadeford is a popular village just 1½ miles north of Chard, and Knoll House occupies an elevated position set just off a pleasant country lane, enjoying superb views across the valley to hills. Chard is well served with shopping, educational and leisure facilities, whilst the village of Combe St Nicholas with local amenities, including Primary School, is just 1 mile away. The County Town of Taunton is 12 miles to the north, with interchange on the M5 motorway (Junction 25) and excellent rail link to London (Paddington under 2 hours).
