Tenure: Freehold

4/5 Bedroom Detached Residence including a fully self-contained annexe in Brompton Ralph,  Wiveliscombe, near Taunton occupying a commanding position in the Brendon Hills with breathtaking views set in gardens & grounds of approximately 3.5 acres

A south facing barn conversion {1999} with a fully self contained single storey annexe {The Stables} which is NOT subject to additional stamp duty. 

The main property faces due south with two balconies enjoying spectacular views. It offers two large living rooms with log burners. The " hub" is a spacious farmhouse kitchen/dining room complete with a range, built-in fridge & dishwasher and plenty of storage cupboards, in addition there is also a practical utility room with airing cupboard and ground floor cloakroom.  The large master bedroom has a Juliet balcony  and En-suite double shower room, an additional double bedroom and family bathroom.

From the main living room there is access via a few steps to another sitting room/music room, which used to be the cowshed and is referred to as the Dogleg. This room also has fabulous views from every window, has its own cloakroom and access and is therefore very flexible.

The Stables{annexe} comprises of a kitchen, a shower room and four other rooms, the largest of which measures about 20 foot in length. There is glazing to both sides of the building thereby providing plenty of natural light coupled with outstanding views. This building, as the main house, benefits from having its own electric meter, and independent oil supply for the central heating. The building is very versatile in that it can be used for many different purposes. It benefits from two entry and exit points and would be suitable for holiday lets if so desired, or indeed a home office. 

At the back of the house and easily accessed from the utility room is a large terrace with pergola and the most beautiful wysteria! A terraced gravelled area with shallow steps leads down to the lawned garden & garden shed. There are two double garages, one at the front of the property and one at the back. Both have power, light, water and security and smoke alarms * {*smoke alarm only in top garage}.

Services: Both the main residence and the stable annexe have their own electricity meters, hard wired smoke alarms, oil tanks, central heating systems and septic tanks which are emptied regularly. The alarm for both properties and garages can be individually zoned which is handy if there are guests staying in the Stables. Water is from a private supply.

The formal gardens are at the back of the property, the larger piece of land is at the front backing up to the drive and the public highway. There are two field gates for easy access.

Location:The property is close to the village of Brompton Ralph which has a church and small shop with post office with an ATM machine. Wiveliscombe is approximately three miles south, with its wider range of facilities.
