Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A substantial post war detached house affording well presented and spacious family living accommodation set within large gardens with a small paddock on the edge of a highly favoured village between Taunton and Wellington.
Wellington 3 miles, Taunton 4 miles.

The Old Police House as the name implies was constructed for the Somerset Constabulary during the 1940s period but has been in private ownership for many years now. The property has been substantially extended and improved within the last 10 years and now affords particularly spacious five bedroom family living accommodation. The reception rooms give real flexibility to this property and afford a large principle living room with a mezzanine level useful for hobbies or as a study area. This room directly opens to the gardens and flows through to the kitchen which is adjoined both by a dining room and also a particularly large utility room. Beyond are three further reception rooms - one is again of a good size, well suited as a games room or second sitting room whilst a further study area and library are also provided. The house is offered in good decorative order throughout and has upgraded kitchens, bathrooms and shower rooms. It stands within large gardens that extend to just under 1 acre which include good sized gardens as well as a paddock area beyond (with stable block) well suited for those who want to keep a pony or perhaps an over spill garden/poultry area. Given the quality and convenience of the location the availability of such a good sized family home is not an opportunity to be missed.

Bradford on Tone is a highly favoured village lying roughly mid way between Taunton and Wellington, readily approached from the nearby A38. The village itself has a popular pub together with community village stores and attractive parish church and further local amenity is the 18 hole golf course at Oak Manor. Both Taunton and Wellington are within easy striking distance where a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities will be found (a primary school is available at Oak, 1 mile away) and the M5 can be readily joined at junction 26 at Wellington, about 2 miles away. The property itself adjoins open farmland and there are some long distance views over the surrounding area and to the Blackdown Hills beyond.

Outside the property is approached through a double opening five bar entrance gate which leads to a large gravelled hard standing and turning area with parking for multiple vehicles. The principle gardens lie to the rear (southern side) of the house and include a large paved patio that directly adjoins the house with steps leading down to good sized lawns which include a soft fruit and vegetable section. Beyond the lawns is a paddock area of about 0.5 acres well suited for those who wish to keep a pony and a small stable block with 2/3 stables that directly adjoin. The gardens adjoin open farmland and some lovely views are afforded.
