Tenure: Freehold

Golsoncott House occupies a superb elevated position, providing a tranquil and secluded setting surrounded by 13 acres of its own land on the edge of the Exmoor National Park. There is a detached stable block with manège and excellent riding out over Exmoor.

Golsoncott House occupies an enviable country setting within the rolling foot hills of Exmoor National Park and enjoys glorious unspoiled views over the Brendon and Quantock Hills.

Located on the edge of the Exmoor National Park, the property is exceptionally well placed for both riding and walking and the wealth of country pursuits that such an area can offer.

There is an exceptionally good range of state and private schools close by including Kings Hall, Kings College, the renowned Taunton schools, Wellington School and further south is Blundell's School at Tiverton.

Golsoncott House was built in the very early 1900s by Count Hochburg for his land agent on the Croydon Hall estate. The architect was WJ Parker of South Molton Street, London. The unique butterfly shape of the house and materials are typical of the Lutyens influence on the domestic architecture of the times.

The present owners have improved the house over the past few years to ensure that contemporary family comforts and services align with the wonderful Lutyens influence and architecture which remains in place.

The stable courtyard comprises a good range of original stone buildings in the style of the main house. There are four loose boxes and a pony pen. In addition there is a tack room, hay barn, stores and traditional barns.

Golsoncott House faces almost directly south with wonderful far-reaching views across its enchanting landscaped gardens and Exmoor National Park.
