Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This superb Edwardian and unlisted home forms part of the former Staplegrove Manor, a refined and elegant house set within expansive grounds on the northern outskirts of Taunton.

This home strikes the perfect balance between comfort and character from the light and airy kitchen overlooking the gardens with French doors, to the sizeable drawing room, also overlooking the gardens. The study extending to 21ft also with French doors opening onto the garden, could similarly be a family room or sitting room, whilst currently providing an excellent 'work from home' study area. Space abounds throughout the property, not least within the laundry room, extending to 20ft providing extensive working and storage space. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms all providing different character, but sharing the southerly aspect across the gardens to the front, these are complimented by a recently refitted bathroom with a modern white suite comprising bath, separate shower, wash basin and WC, with separate shower room adjoining with again a refitted suite comprising a shower, wash basin and WC. Both bathrooms have underfloor heating, in addition to heated towel rails.
The whole accommodation is heated by gas fired central heating.

A particular feature is the superb kitchen, refitted by the owners to a high standard, with granite work tops and large central island unit, ample base cupboards, a four oven gas fired Aga and plumbing for a dishwasher, all complimented by oak flooring. There is also a large bay window to the front beyond the dining space, providing a sitting area suitable for a sofa etc., with French doors opening directly onto the southerly facing garden.

Outside the property is accessed from the highway through an attractive stone arch into the rear courtyard and parking area. The property has the benefit of owning the former coach house, a high roofed building with the original twin double doors opening onto a bricked paved open space, providing power and light and ample storage/parking, as well as two brick paved spaces in front of the coach house.

To the front of the house are the large gardens which all combine to provide a wonderful parkland style, with Number 3 laid mainly to well-manicured lawn, with central flower beds and mature trees and shrubs at the end.

The entire garden extends to approximately 197ft in length and runs the width of the house.

The property is ideally located in a southerly facing position on the edge of the village of Staplegrove, on the northern outskirts of Taunton. The property offers an oasis of calm within its tranquil grounds, whilst maintaining a high level of convenience, not only to the town centre which lies approximately two miles from the property, but also the mainline train station which lies on the north side of the centre.

Taunton provides a wide range of commercial retail facilities in line with its county town status, as well as the county cricket ground, home of the famous Somerset Cricket Club.

M5 access can be gained at Junction 25 and a wide range of state and private schooling is available, including the nearby Taunton School and Kings Hall School. Staplegrove Village has its own post office and general store which are located just down the road, as well as the village hall and church.

The property lies close to open countryside with many footpaths and country lanes, leading in many directions across open countryside. A particular feature close by are the Quantock Hills which provide some of the best open countryside available, including walking, riding and mountain biking, leading all the way to the West Somerset coastline.

This excellent property provides a rare combination of a tuck-away location, close to open countryside, whilst maintaining excellent access to the wide range of facilities available within Taunton.
From the town centre proceed down North Street over the bridge into Bridge Street, bearing left at the traffic lights into Staplegrove Road. Follow Staplegrove Road to the roundabout, taking the first exit and continuing along Staplegrove Road to the traffic lights. Turn right towards Staplegrove Village and follow Manor Road passing Lawn Road on the left and continue around the next bend and just after the sports pavilion, turn right through the stone archway, proceed around to the right and park in front of the double doors at the coach house, No 3 can be found in the corner opposite.
