Tenure: Freehold

An outstanding country house with exceptionally stylish interior in a beautiful private setting with swimming pool complex, annexe, stable block, 3 paddocks and far reaching views. In all the property extends to about 8.75 acres.

Sidbrook Coach House lies in a beautiful and completely private setting and from its elevated position enjoys superb views across the Vale of Taunton Deane to hills in the far distance. The present owner is a well known award winning local builder who first converted the house in the 1980's for his family's own occupation. Since then he has extended it, refurbished it and recently re-built the swimming pool complex. The house faces south and is built in the local sandstone. It provides light and airy accommodation which is very well proportioned and finished to an extremely high standard - It is beautifully presented.

The drawing room combines with the sitting room to create a wonderful reception area which is about 45ft (13.8m) long. Doors open out from these rooms to the covered way which leads to the swimming pool complex and onto the terraces outside. Superb views can be enjoyed from the terraces across the lake and the adjoining countryside. The drawing room and the dining room have large open fireplaces with wood burning stoves and there are oak floors in these three reception rooms. From the breakfast room a wide open archway leads to the kitchen which is beautifully fitted with an excellent range of units, twin Belfast sink, granite worktops, an island unit and a 4 oven Aga cooker with a gas hob.

The principal bedroom suite comprises a magnificent bedroom which is 30ft (9.2m) long and a beautifully fitted spacious bathroom with a free standing bath, double shower unit and twin basins. It is served by its own staircase which leads to a landing and a balcony which looks out over the lake. The remaining four spacious bedrooms, dressing room and bathrooms are served from the galleried landing which overlooks the entrance hall. Leading off the landing is an attractive reading room with views to the front of the house through a very large semi-circular window.

Sidbrook lies about 3 miles north east of Taunton at the foot of the well known Quantock Hills and about 1 mile from the attractive village of West Monkton which has a church and pub. Taunton has a good range of schools and provides comprehensive shopping and leisure facilities, which include an excellent mainline railway service to London (Paddington) which can be reached in 1 hour 40 minutes on the fastest trains and junction 25 of the M5 motorway, whilst access to the A303 trunk road, which links with the M3 motorway to London, is about 12 miles away at Ilminster. There are international airports at Bristol and Exeter.

The Quantock Hills are designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and with their open hillside and wooded combes are ideal for walking, riding and other country pursuits. Nearby are the historical gardens of Hestercombe House which are open to the public.
