Brean House is located in a beautiful rural setting at the foot of the Quantock Hills, yet is only three miles from the market town of Taunton. The village of West Monkton is very popular with a primary school, thriving community, village hall, church and a pub.

The Quantock Hills were England's first designated "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty" and for those enjoying walking, cycling, riding and outdoor country and equestrian pursuits, the surrounding countryside and coastline provide superb recreational opportunities.

Taunton, approximately 3 miles away, has a good range of shopping facilities and a thriving farmers' market. There are also many excellent local producers and artisan farm shops. The Musgrove and Nuffield Hospitals serve the town and surrounding area. There are excellent schools for boys and girls of all ages, including Taunton School, Kings College, Queen's College and King's Hall. Other well-known schools in the area include Millfield, Wellington and Blundell's, all within easy driving distance.
Communications are excellent with the M5 motorway at Taunton providing links to the A38 to Plymouth, the A30 to Cornwall, and Bristol and London to the North and East. There are regular rail services to Bristol and London from Taunton, taking as little as 1 ½ hours to London. Exeter International Airport provides an ever increasing number of domestic and international flights, including two flights a day to London City Airport.

Brean House is approached through remotely controlled gates onto a brick paved driveway leading to an ample parking area and double garage. The house is surrounded by pretty gardens, the majority of which are south-facing with flowering shrubs. A large paved terrace, ideal for alfresco dining and drinks, is accessed from the garden room and leads down to a level garden, mainly laid to lawn. The gardens are surrounded by established trees and hedging, providing privacy, and there is a greenhouse and pond. To the west of the house is a further area of lawn surrounded by established trees. To the rear of the property is a paved courtyard surrounding the 15 metre heated swimming pool. In all the grounds extend to approximately 0.95 of an acre.
