Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Woolmersdon House is a beautifully appointed, stunning Georgian property sat elegantly in its well-maintained grounds and overlooking both the adjacent farmland and the rolling hills of Somerset. Built in the late 18th Century this attractive Georgian residence, listed by English Heritage as a “Small Country Villa”, has superb grandeur and is adorned with Georgian elegance throughout every room. It is awarded its Grade II Listing as a result of the plethora of period features including sash windows, fan light windows, stripped wooden floors, cornicing, generous proportions and a rarely seen semi-circular music room which is currently used as an elegant drawing room. Given the layout of the property, all of the principle rooms enjoy the exceptional south and west facing views and light. The current owners have cared for the house well, both remodelling and continuing to update the property throughout their time here. Offering some 4260 square feet of accommodation over two floors there are a range of rooms including both entertaining spaces, such as the drawing room, dining room and recently added orangery, as well as more cosy family spaces such as the sitting room. The kitchen/breakfast room forms the heart of the home and enjoys external access. The room has a number of seating areas with alcove seats and breakfast bar facilities. There is a solid wood burning ‘Esse’ range cooker backed up by summer cooking facilities. A utility room provides access to the rear patio. The first floor has five bedrooms with four bathrooms, a rarity in a period property, all have south facing views over the gardens. The decoration suits the period nature of the property with a mix of vibrant colours, bespoke wallpaper and handmade furniture such as in the fitted library which has been built in white oak.

The current owners of Woolmersdon House fell in love with both the stunning Georgian architecture and the situation and vantage point that the property enjoys. Access is along a quiet country lane, via secure electric double opening gates through to the driveway which is complete with turning circle and more recently constructed garages. All of the principle rooms have a south and west facing aspect over the formal grounds culminating in a ha-ha dropping into the pasture and arable land beyond. The view then continues over the rolling countryside and distant hills. The location of the property offers peace and tranquillity. The grounds are well stocked with a range of herbaceous borders, box hedging and level lawns. There are a number of mature trees providing interest together with specimen fruit trees and roses. The paddock itself is fenced with independent vehicular access.
A portion has been rented to the local farmer over recent years and he helps to maintain and manage the land.


Woolmersdon House is the principle dwelling in the hamlet of Woolmersdon set some 2.5 miles from the well regarded Quantock Hills, an Area of outstanding Natural Beauty. There are an exceptional array of outdoor pursuits locally such as walking, cycling and equestrian facilities. Further amenities can be found in the larger town of Taunton some 8 miles away. The Cathedral City of Exeter is approximately 44 miles south and Bristol is 38 miles to the north, both have international airports. Schooling is offered in Taunton, Exeter and Bristol.
