A substantial attached Georgian country house in parkland setting with outbuildings. Excellent kitchen/breakfast room, 2 large reception rooms, garden room and 3 En-Suite bedrooms. Beautiful gardens and grounds and useful outbuildings. About 2.6 acres. Additional 5.3 acres available. EPC Band F.

Situation - Stallards enjoys a wonderful rural, yet accessible, location on the lower foothills of the Blackdown Hills, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Standle is a small hamlet situated just 1.5 miles from the centre of the popular town of Wellington, which offers a range of facilities and amenities including Waitrose supermarket and the highly regarded Wellington School. The County Town of Taunton offers a more extensive range of amenities. The Blackdown Hills offer many footpaths and bridleways, ideal for those with walking and riding interests.
The M5 is easily accessible at Wellington, providing great links to Cornwall to the south and Bristol and London to the north and east. There are regular rail services to London Paddington from Taunton, and Exeter International Airport provides a number of domestic and international flights.

Description - Stallards is part of a substantial Georgian country house, believed to date back to the early 1800s. The current owners have been in residence for 29 years and during this time they have extended and refurbished the property to provide fantastic and flexible accommodation. There are various period features throughout, including superb fireplaces, within the dining room, drawing room and principal bedroom, picture rails and good ceiling heights.
The beautiful gardens and grounds extend to 2.6 acres with a range of outbuildings including stabling and garaging. There is a further 5.3 acres of land available by separate negotiation.

Accommodation - The ground floor accommodation is approached through a traditional porch with a flagstone floor continuing into the entrance hall with the main staircase. From here a door leads to the inner hall, which easily lends itself to be used as a study area, with a downstairs cloakroom and large cloak cupboard. To the left of the inner hall is a particularly light garden room with double doors leading to the drawing room and kitchen/breakfast room, antique radiator and windows enjoying views over the surrounding gardens.
A more recent addition to the property is the impressive kitchen, which includes an extensive range of bespoke pine wooden units, granite work surfaces and cream Rayburn set in a central inglenook with a pine surround and an opening through to the breakfast area.
The two imposing reception rooms are exactly what you would expect of a property with this charm and appeal. The drawing room has a period marble fireplace with cast iron insert, high skirting boards and picture rails, and large window overlooking the front lawn. The dining room has light oak flooring, high skirting boards, spode shelving, period cast iron fireplace has a pine surround and, again, a large window overlooking the front.
The ground floor is supported by some excellent service rooms. Beyond the kitchen is the ancillary kitchen with a further range of units, electric cooker and doors to the rear hall with the secondary staircase and, with a rear entrance, the laundry/boot room, including range of units, a sink and space and plumbing for laundry appliances.

There are two separate staircases leading to the first floor accommodation. All three bedrooms are great sizes and benefit from en-suite bathrooms. The principal and third bedrooms are approached off the main staircase and the secondary staircase leads to bedroom two, with a further landing and storage cupboards. The principal bedroom includes an open fireplace with surround, a large dressing room and an additional walk-in wardrobe.

Gardens And Grounds - The initial shared drive leads along a private gravelled drive to an extensive parking and turning area and garaging. To the front of the house is a parkland setting; a line of staddle stones flanks the drive and a large expanse of lawn, with two horse chestnuts, stream running through and a large pond and seating area.
The southerly gardens are superbly kept with interspersed borders, beautifully planted with an extensive range of mature shrubs, plants and trees, including a number of rose bushes, Clematis, grapevine and apple tree. There is a summer house in one corner and in the parallel corner is a greenhouse beside two large raised beds, planted with soft fruits and vegetables. Along the eastern side is the stable building, although accessed from the paddock it has been rendered, with a covered seating area in front.
Beyond the gardens are two separate fields. In one of the fields is the stable building and tractor shed.

Outbuilding - The double garage has two separate double doors and a pedestrian access. A staircase leads to the first floor storage area, which offers further potential subject to the necessary planning consent.
The stable building is timber cladded to the front with a box profile roof and provides two stables, tack room/log store and hayshed. There is electric connected.
There is also a tractor shed.

Additional Land - There is an additional 5.3 acres of land available by separate negotiation. The land is level and enclosed by hedging and post and wire fencing with separate road access.

Agents Note - There is a flying freehold at this property.

Directions - From junction 26 of the M5 motorway head towards Wellington and at the roundabout with the A38 take the first exit signposted Exeter. Continue along here for approximately 2 miles turning left into Stallards and proceed for 200 yards, where the entrance to Stallards will be found on the left hand side. If you get to the grass triangle you have gone too far.
