Full description

A modern detached country providing well appointed family living accommodation set within grounds including a tennis court of some four acres and enjoying some marvellous southerly views.
Wellington 4 miles, Taunton 11 miles.

Brookbank comes to the market for the first time since its construction in 2001 and comprises a well arranged spacious five bedroom family home set within lovely gardens and grounds of some four acres and includes good parking areas, manageable gardens, good quality hard tennis court, an attractive belt of hard wood trees and a delightful woodland path adjoining a small stream. The principal area of the house is a split level living and dining room with wide walk ways through to both the entrance area and also the family kitchen/breakfast room that adjoins making this an ideal house for entertaining purposes. Both of
these family rooms have French windows that open to a generous terrace that adjoins and from which lovely views are afforded. Five double bedrooms are present on the first floor two of which have en suite facilities and are arranged around a spacious landing area. The house is of rendered elevations under tiled roofs benefitting from double glazing and oil fired central heating and is presented in good decorative order throughout. The setting within the grounds takes full advantage of the southerly views that are afforded and there is plenty of space for parking and turning with some useful outbuildings adjoining. An En Tout Cas tennis court is
subtly set within the grounds and there is a charming small raised decked area to enjoy evening drinks whilst admiring the view. The property benefits from a 4G super fast broadband connection.

Kittisford is a small settlement set within traditional and rolling Somerset countryside, the area being largely dominated by stock farming interspersed with a host of hard wood copses and woodland belts. The area does not suffer from any local road noise and yet is conveniently situated for easy access to the nearby town of Wellington (4 miles) where a good range of facilities include
several supermarkets, Wellington sports centre and Wellington independent school. The M5 may be joined at either junctions 26 or 27 which are roughly equal distance some 5 miles away. Taunton, the County Town is around 11 miles away where a wide range of shopping, recreational and scholastic facilities will be found together with main line rail link to London Paddington. Brookbank is situated on the edge of the settlement in a slightly elevated situation and enjoys some glorious views particularly to the south over the surrounding countryside and to the Blackdown Hills and Wellington Monument in the far distance.

The property is approached over a lengthy gravelled approach drive which terminates in a good sized hard standing and turning area adjoining which is a double car port with store rooms to either side. The gardens are predominantly on the southern side of the house with a large terrace and patio area immediately adjoining the house with steps leading out both from the kitchen and living room providing an excellent area for entertaining purposes. Lawns sweep down from the terrace with an excellent log cabin on the lower side which is ideal for leisure use or perhaps for hobbies or work at home needs. A separate five bar gate provides useful access to the village road close by. A lower section of informal lawns adjoin and includes a useful vegetable and soft fruit cage, whilst on the opposite side of the house is a well maintained En Tout Cas hard tennis court set within a wired enclosure and indeed within a 'bowl' that forms a delightful setting. The court is adjoined by solar PV cells that attract the higher rate tariff producing a useful annual income of approximately £1,500. The final section of the grounds is largely dedicated to a belt of well established hard wood trees and informal banked areas of grassland - the whole forming a charming setting for the house and enjoying superb views, particularly in the southerly direction towards the Blackdown Hills and Wellington Monument in the distance.
In all the property extends to approximately 4 acres.
