Situation - Hughenden House occupies an elevated enviable setting on the southern edge of Taunton town centre, with wonderful views towards the Blackdown Hills. Taunton, the County Town of Somerset, has an extensive shopping centre with many well-known High Street and independent stores, as well as a weekly market, library, theatre and arts centre, supermarkets and a number of restaurants, all within walking distance of the property.
There are three well-respected independent schools in Taunton, namely Taunton School, Kings and Queens Colleges, as well as Richard Huish College together with a number of state schools, which also have excellent reputations.
Vivary Park, a former medieval fish farm which supplied the castle, is just around the corner from Hughenden House and now hosts a bowling club, golf course and an annual flower show as well as outdoor classical concerts, around the Edwardian bandstand, which run throughout the summer.
For those with sporting interests, regular race meetings are held at Taunton Racecourse and Taunton is also the home of Somerset County Cricket Club where there are a number of regular fixtures held at their iconic town centre ground. There are also a number of well-known popular golf courses in the area, including Oake Manor, Pickeridge, Enmore and, slightly further afield, Burnham and Burrow.
The motorway network is very accessible from the property with junction 25 of the M5 approximately 2 miles to the east. There are also frequent trains to London Paddington and the rest of the country from Taunton Railway Station.
Hughenden House is superbly situated to take advantage of the vast network of footpaths and bridleways which run through the Quantocks, the Blackdowns (both Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty) the Brendons and Exmoor National Park, all of which have a number of charming country pubs.
The University cities of Bath, Bristol and Exeter are all within approximately 50 miles, with the latter two also having international airports.

Description - Hughenden House, close to the centre of Taunton, is a collection of individual, spacious and highly distinctive apartments which have been created within a former Victorian property, with the addition of a contemporary new build. It is thought to have been built by Henry Davis, a well-respected local builder and amateur architect, in the late 1800s and has had many uses over the years when it was split into two large semi-detached properties known as Hertford House (No 10) and Telemedic House (No 12). Hertford House was most recently a dental surgery and Telemedic house (formally Stafford Villa) has had a number of commercial occupiers.

Apartment 4 - Apartment 4 is a spacious 2 bedroom apartment with accommodation arranged over 2 floors. On the ground floor there is a master bedroom with en-suite shower room, a second bedroom and a fully fitted family bathroom. A wooden staircase rises to the large open plan L shaped sitting room and kitchen. The sitting room will be fitted with a contemporary gas fire and there are double doors which open onto an elevated south facing roof terrace. The kitchen is fully fitted with a range of built in appliances, granite worktops and a range of kitchen units.

Outside - The property benefits from an allocated parking spot within a secured parking area.
