Situation - Harley House is conveniently situated just two miles from the centre of Taunton, the County Town of Somerset, which offers a substantial range of shopping, leisure and commercial facilities and is also well known for its excellent schooling in both the state and private sectors. Taunton is the home of Somerset County Cricket Ground and Taunton Racecourse and has excellent transport links with a mainline railway station, with connections to London Paddington in under two hours, and a junction on the M5, which provides access to the motorway network. There is also easy access to the Quantock Hills, which were designated as the first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the country and provide miles of footpaths and bridleways.

Description - Harley House is a wonderful detached modern property, which was constructed to a high specification, with the benefit of an NHBC warranty and includes many high quality features. The property was built by a specialist local builder, Innovate Developments, and includes some 4000Sqft of accommodation arranged over two floors. The design and construction of the property allows potential for additional third floor accommodation with provision of a staircase, windows, power, heating and ventilation in place. There are no plans drawn for this area, but is thought that there is potential for two further bedrooms and bathroom if required. The house has a pleasing symmetry and is well equipped with easy maintenance sash tilt windows and patio doors. The staircase, doors, architraves and skirting boards have been constructed in oak by local craftsmen. The property has its own underfloor heating system on the ground floor, which is controlled by six radio controlled room thermostats. There is radiator heating on the first floor and individual electric underfloor heating to each of the bathrooms. There is a whole house ventilation system, with heat exchange providing extraction to the kitchen, utility and bathroom areas and freshly filtered air to all living areas.

Accommodation - The house has a portico entrance, which leads through to an impressive reception hall with turning oak staircase leading to the first floor, oak floor and doors to the sitting room. This is a triple aspect room with a stone fireplace and inset gas fire. There are French doors leading out to the west terrace and gardens. The substantial formal dining room has dual aspect windows and the study also overlooks the garden. The inner hall has two storage cupboards, one of which has control systems for the underfloor heating. There is also a door to the rear garden and access to the kitchen/family room, which is a superb living space, ideally suited to family living. The kitchen area is beautifully fitted with a range of units, granite work surfaces and an excellent range of quality fitted appliances including twin Neff multifunction ovens, a steam oven, microwave oven, two warming drawers, a four burner gas hob and twin induction hob with extractor and exterior mounted fan over. There are two pairs of French doors leading out onto the gardens and the kitchen flows beautifully into the family room, which has a timber panelled vaulted ceiling, oak floor and large picture windows overlooking the garden. There is a central wood burning stove, which is on a rotating base and can therefore benefit either the kitchen or the family room. There is also a generous utility room, cloakroom and access to the garage.

First Floor - The oak staircase in the reception hall leads to the first floor where there is a generous landing with sash windows and space for installation for the staircase of the potential second floor accommodation. The master bedroom has a triple aspect over the rear gardens and includes a walk in dressing room with fitted drawers and hanging space and an additional dressing area with fitted wardrobes. There is also an en-suite with panelled bath, low level WC, wash basin and shower cubicle with fully tiled walls and floor. Bedroom Two has dual aspect windows, fitted wardrobes and also has an en-suite with double width shower, wash basin, low level WC and fully tiled walls and floor. There are two further double bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes and sash windows overlooking the garden. The family bathroom is beautifully appointed with a shower cubicle, wash basin with cupboards under, panelled bath, low level WC, tiled walls and floor.

Outside - The house is approached via twin wooden gates leading onto a gravelled hardstanding, which in turn provides access to the attached double garage. There is also a staircase up to the loft space above the garage, which has potential to convert into further accommodation, subject to the necessary consents. The gardens that surround the house are mature and predominantly laid to lawn with deep paved terracing to the rear of the property. The main areas of the garden, which are laid to lawn, include a number of mature specimen trees and plants and extend to approximately half an acre.

Directions - From Taunton, take the Kingston Road out of the town. Turn right into Hope Corner Lane and proceed along this lane, where Harley House can be identified on the left hand side after a short distance.
