Full description

A substantial period building affording a wide range of residential/commercial opportunities and set within good sized grounds including excellent parking in an attractive situation on the outskirts of the County Town of Taunton.

Bishops Hull House dates from the mid-late 18th Century and is listed Grade ll in recognition of its architectural interest. Constructed of Flemish bond brick elevations with bath stone detailing and coping stones, the property offers substantial accommodation of approximately 6,500 sq ft arranged over three floors and features many very well proportioned rooms which enjoy good natural day lighting as well as excellent ceiling heights. A central hallway leads to an elegant staircase to the upper floors and, typically with properties of this period, with accommodation arranged on a left and right hand basis. The property has for many years been in office usage (it was for many years a Natwest Bank training centre) and remains very well suited to that use class particularly as a statement HQ building, particularly given the convenience of its position and excellent onsite parking. Alternatively it would seem possible (subject to any consents that may be required) to return the property to its residential origins in which case an excellent family home would be created. A variety of other residential/commercial uses obviously also have possibilities. The property stands within excellent mature grounds which are partly walled and include a number of mature trees. The property is largely vacant at present and is available for early occupation if desired.

The property is situated in the small village of Bishops Hull which lies on the western outskirts of the County Town of Taunton. It still retains much of its original village feel with some local shops, parish church and primary school. This property occupies a slightly tucked away situation with little or no passing traffic and is accordingly occupying an attractive and peaceful position. It is readily accessible nevertheless from the centre of Taunton and the A38 Taunton to Wellington Road which passes relatively close by. Access to the Taunton rail station and the M5 junction to both Taunton and Wellington are readily accessible. Taunton is the County Town with an expanding population currently of around 65,000 and the administrative Head Quarters not only for Somerset but for some important companies including the UK Hydrographic office and Debenhams Admin Centre. The quality of scholastic facilities in the town is well known with four good quality independent schools available.

The property is approached via an attractive pillared entrance which leads to a large parking area immediately to the front of the house with parking for multiple vehicles. Access is afforded through to a further parking area to one side again with over spill parking for multiple vehicles. Attractive and partly walled gardens are provided to the rear which include a superb mulberry tree and are generally laid to lawns with a variety of herbaceous borders and including further established trees. The property is adjoined on both sides by established housing.

Tenure and Tenancies
The property is of freehold tenure and will be offered, if required, with vacant possession on completion. At present, Barnardos UK occupy part of the property on a rolling tenancy and with a passing rent of £----. Barnardos use the property as an admin HQ for Somerset and also for regional meetings. They are willing to remain in occupation if a purchaser so wish but equally possession can be obtained upon 2 months notice if required.
