An elegant detached Georgian house providing substantial living accommodation set within attractive good sized gardens on the outskirts of the county town.
Taunton Centre 1.5 Miles
Staplegrove Lodge is Listed Grade II in recognition of its architectural quality and dates back in part to the 15th Century. The appearance is very much Regency style although the main facade was not added, we understand, until about 1860. The property offers substantial living accommodation, arranged principally on two floors, although there are three good rooms at attic level and approached from a decent secondary staircase. The ground floor features three excellent reception rooms together with a large breakfast room and separate games room. Several of these rooms enjoy deep Georgian style windows with pleasant aspects over the gardens which are of a good size and are partly walled at a lower level creating almost a secret garden area. The house has been in the same ownership for many years and the current owners have used several bedrooms for bed and breakfast purposes. This has been very successful and details of the business are available on request. Staplegrove Lodge is an excellent family house of style and is thoroughly recommended by the selling agents.
The property is situated on the north western outskirts of Taunton on the edge of the highly favoured village of Staplegrove and local amenities include primary schooling, convenience stores and an attractive parish church. The house it well set back from nearby roads but enjoys excellent access particularly to the north and western sides of the town and indeed to the A358 which leads to West Somerset. The Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are within three or four miles where many fine walks may be enjoyed. Views of these are enjoyed from some bedroom windows.
Taunton enjoys a wide range of shopping recreational and scholastic facilities including three noted public schools together with a major hospital and Somerset College of Arts and Technology. The town benefits from excellent communication links with the rest of the UK with fast rail service to London Paddington and M5 interchange.
